How to Make this Lavender Goat Milk Soap recipe:
What You’ll Need:
- 2 lb block of Goats Milk Glycerin Melt & Pour Soap Base – this is enough for 12 bars

Note: The ingredients and supplies may cost a little initially, but since you can reuse them over and over (aside from the soap base), you will save a lot of money. It typically costs at least $4 for each bar of goat milk soap, usually more. See where the savings will come in?
Here are the ingredients in the goat’s milk organic soap base I use:
Goat Milk Soap Recipe:
The large block of the soap base is smooth and silky, and it cuts easily with a kitchen knife. Slice the soap base into strips, then cubes, and place them inside the microwave safe measuring cup.
Melt in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring well in between to ensure that the soap is completely melted. It took a minute and 30 seconds for each batch to 100% melt. My pyrex measuring cup was only big enough to melt half of the soap at one time, so I ended up making 2 batches out of the 2 lbs of soap base.
Combine about 10 drops of red soap coloring and 10 drops of blue into an empty drop container and shake well. Now add 7 drops of the purple color to the melted soap and stir until even. Then add 15-20 drops of Lavender Essential oil and mix well. Last, sprinkle and stir in some dried lavender.
Pour into the soap mold and let sit for at least 45 minutes to cool.
I found some burlap ribbon with lace and some purple raffia on clearance at Walmart. I thought that was the perfect combo to wrap these up and make them even more delightful as a gift. Use whatever you want to wrap your bars as a personal touch. 🙂
