Lately I've been on this milk soap kick. I've made goats milk soap many times in the past but never regular cows milk. Those of you in the know are well aware that milk soaps make some of the hardest most luxurious bars ever, and the harder the bar, the longer it lasts, so I'm all far that!
Making milk soaps can be a bit tricky for a few reasons. The main rule to making milk soaps is you have to freeze the milk before you add the lye otherwise the milk can become overheated, curdle, turn bright orange and stink to high heaven! If you don't - believe me you will regret it. Yes I'm speaking from experience :)
Here's one of my milk soap batches. I scented it with Bulgarian Rose with a dash of Coconut fragrance. The natural scent of the milk sweetens the roses and the coconut just rounds it out perfectly!
I do believe I've found my newest favorite soap!!
