Creamy Dreamy Citrus Soap


Here is my soap for the Week 2 Challenge. It is my four milk soap of goat milk, coconut milk, buttermilk, and cream. It has a scent blend of grapefruit, litsea, lime, and a smidgen of white vanilla fragrance. It smells so good! It is one of my most favorite blends.

I am really excited about the success of this milk soap. I really enjoyed melting the large milk pieces with the lye and now I feel more confident doing it again. It was very relaxing. It's a good thing because I had a bunch of leftover milk so I have another 5-6 lbs of milk separated out into ziplock bags in the freezer. I liked freezing the soap into the fun bug shapes but I just had way too much milk to get frozen right away.



You can oogle over all of the other Week 2 participants here at Amy's blog.

The challenge for this week is to make piped soap. I have done that before and it wasn't something I really enjoyed and so I am debating whether I will do it or not. However, that should be a good enough reason to challenge myself to do it again. I have seen lots of piped soaps made since then and maybe I've picked up a few hints along the way. We shall see! Don't wait on me! :-)

Your soap is so delightful, Holly! Not a smidgen of ash on those tops - did you have to rinse them or are you just that good? "White" vanilla sounds like a good investment!!

Thank you ladies! Right now I don't smell much of the vanilla but I find this scent blend blooms with cure. It really didn't have any ash! Go figure!
