  1. Weigh the coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, beeswax, olive oil, castor oil, and jojoba oil in a large stainless steel pot.
  2. Heat until contents in pot are melted, then cool to 100 degrees F.
  3. Partially freeze goat’s milk until it is slushy in a plastic or stainless steel container (the lye added later will eat aluminum).
  4. Weigh lye into a disposable zip close bag. Over a period of 20 minutes and while outside in a well ventilated area wearing protective hand and eye gear, little by little add the lye to the goat’s milk (not the other way around).
  5. Once the lye milk is also at 95-100 degrees F (you may have to put one or the other pot in an ice bath to make sure they reach this temp. at the same time), pour the lye milk into the melted oils.
  6. Use a stick blender or hand mixer to mix on and off until trace (it starts to thicken like pudding).
  7. Before it gets too thick, add your essential oils and honey. Mix very well so you don’t end up with any pockets of honey in your soap!
  8. Quickly scrape into your lined mold (I line mine with wax paper) and incubate for 24 hours.
