Hello lovelies! Today, I will be sharing with you how I created my DIY goats milk soaps. I made these soaps for my mom on Mother's Day and tried to share this blog post before so you could possibly make them for your mothers, but my Amazon order just took too long and I didn't have enough time. But, I think this is a great gift to give to anyone on any occasion or even just for you at home. So enjoy!
  • 2 lbs. goats milk melt and pour soap base 
  • dried lavender (I got mine from Whole Foods or you can order some here)
  • 1 lemon rind, zested
  • honey
  • dried rose buds
  • pure vanilla extract 
  • pink himalyan salt 
  • fresh mint 
  • essential oils (rose, lavender, peppermint, rosemary, and lemon). Rose oil is a bit harder to find so I ordered mine. The rest of the essential oils, you can find at Whole Foods. I usually use Young Living Essentials, but I didn't want to waste mine so I found all the essential oils I needed at T.J. Maxx
  • silicone soap mold
  • heart shaped cookie cutter
  • rubbing alcohol (to spray for no bubbles, I forgot!)
    Start off by dividing the goats milk into three sections. This will be for your three separate scents. Then cut them up into smaller sections (as seen above) and place them into three separate microwavable safe bowls. Work on one bowl at a time because they dry up quick. I microwaved each bowl for about 2 minutes. After your soap is melted, add 20 drops of rose oil and a few drops of vanilla extract (stir) and then add in the pink himalayan salt and dried rose buds. To avoid bubbles in your soap, spray some rubbing alcohol (I completely forgot, but it's ok). Before you pour the soap into the mold, sprinkle some dried rose buds at the bottom of the mold and pour in your soap (pictured below). Before the soap dries up, sprinkle some more rose buds on top. I put my molds into the freezer for a couple of hours and then they were all ready!
I had extra soap so I decided to pour some into cookie cutters that I had and placed wax paper underneath them. Turns out, I actually liked the heart shaped soaps better! My favorite soap that I made was the heart shaped mint soap and that was the one I thought I messed up on with the design because it was drying up really fast so I was playing around with the top and I actually really liked how it turned out looking! 
You can finish up by wrapping your soaps with wrapping that you can purchase, but I didn't want to waste my money so I tried getting creative and found coffee filters (pictured below). I cut the filters into squares and wrapped them up, placed some tape, wrapped with twine, and used a sharpie to write down the scent! Top it off with some fresh lavender/mint/or rose and you are all finished!
  • 20 drops rose oil 
  • few drops of pure vanilla extract 
  • handful of rose buds (I don't have exact measurements, I just did most of it with the eye).
  • fine grain pink himalayan salt (I just poured some until I thought it was enough). 
  • 15 drops lavender essential oil 
  • 5 drops lemon essential oil
  • 3 tbsp dried lavender (I put more than that and I think it was too much). 
  • 2 tbsp honey 
  • lemon rind, zested
  • 15 drops peppermint essential oil
  • 5 drops rosemary essential oil  
  • handful of fresh mint   

Sorry I don't have exact measurements for everything. I kind of played around with everthing that I had. One thing I did notice is that most websites said 10-15 drops of essential oils and I just felt like that wasn't enough so I added 20. I definitely am not a pro, but I had so much fun making these soaps. My personal favorite soap was the peppermint one and it was the most easiest. Get creative and come up with some of your own combinations! Hope this helped you make some soaps! Have a great day lovelies!
