Lemon Grass Slow Cooked Goat’s Milk Soap

In this hot process recipe we’re making a luxurious lemongrass fragrance goat’s milk bar with a pretty marbled color theme. In this bar we’ll give you 2 ways to make this bar. It’s well known that slow cooked soap will produce a more natural looking rustic piece of artisan soap than the brightly colored cold process method. That doesn’t mean that every hot process creation will always look like it was made on an Amish farm. You can still get some pretty colors and luxury fragrances with the much loved slow cooked method.

Ingredients used in this bar:

  • Rice Bran Oil
  • Palm Oil
  • Olive Oil
  • Coconut Oil
  • Green Mica
  • Titanium Dioxide
  • Yellow Mica
  • Goat's Milk
  • Lye (NaOH - Sodium Hydroxide)
  • Water (Cold distilled bottled water)
  • Fragrance Oil

This is a slow cooked hot process bar that features goat's milk and shea butter as its primer qualities. That makes it an ultra moisturizing bar in combination with the fragrance of lemongrass. One can substitute 7 drops of lemongrass essential oil in exchange for the fragrance oil if preferred.

Goat's milk soap contains many desirable qualities in your soap products. It is commonly recommended by doctors for acne, irritation and redness.
