Lavender Goat Milk Soap Recipe: Back to Nature Spring
Spring is here!
And with it the bees, and newborn flowers, and baby kittens, and oh so many new things!
And if you’re like me, you probably have a garden. And if you don’t have a garden you have a flower pot. And if you don’t have that, well, go buy one.
What I like to do at the beginning of the spring is plant my herbs - and the first one I pick is – lavender. It’s a beautiful violet color, almost looks like a bush, although it’s actually a normal flower. Well, it may be normal but it is not average!
Let me tell you something – with spring comes ‘spring tiredness’. It’s basically because in the Since we often spend the winter sleeping more, hibernating like a bear, our bodies may feel tired and get into the spring/summer rhythm a bit slowly, and be annoyed, stressed, and ache all over.
So, today we’re going to fix that with two incredible ingredients– I love them because I have a farm nearby, and my lavender right outside my door.
What are the ingredients, you ask?
Goat’s milk and lavender!
Ingredients what we need for this Lavender Goat Milk Soap Recipe
- 8oz of Melt and Pour Goat’s Milk Soap Base– Why use goat's milk? I don’t know if you know this, but supposedly Cleopatra herself, the queen of Egypt, bathed herself in goat’s milk every day. And a lot of other Egyptian queens and kings, as well.
- Have you ever seen how gorgeous Nefertiti looked like? She kicks Kardashian’s ass any day. Egyptians were the pillar of beauty that we know today, so don’t trust me – trust Egyptians.
- What exactly does goat’s milk do for your skin? It contains very delicate skin minerals like selenium and is full of vitamin A which is the most important vitamin when it comes to skin.
- It is incredibly creamy, anti-aging and it does wonders for dry and sensitive skin. Ever wondered how those Egyptians kept their skin from drying out? Goat’s milk, baby. And a bit of honey.
- 2 tiny drops of Honey– Yeah, Egyptians loved this thing, too. Man, they were geniuses.
- Dried up Lavender flowers– Lavender is great for soothing your skin, reduces anxiety, and emotional stress, and if you’re like me – spring time brings you trouble sleeping. Well, lavender improves that, too.
And yes, Egyptians used lavender. In fact, they used it in cosmetics as a perfume – they would melt a bit of honey wax and mix lavender in, then place it on their hair or head and let it melt in the sun – apparently they love loved to smell like lavender. They were true pioneers of cosmetics!
Step by step directions for Lavender Goat Milk Soap Recipe
- Your 1st Step :– Take your melt-and-pour GOAT’S MILK soap base and place it into a bowl. If you want it to heat up faster – try grating it, instead of cutting it in little pieces. Place the bowl in a microwave and keep heating it up every 30 seconds, until it melts halfway.
- Instead of a microwave you can use the stove. Just place the bowl with the soap into a pot with water, and gently heat it up while stirring.
- Your 2nd Step :– Okay, now you add the two drops of honey and slowly mix that in!
- Your 3rd Step :– Now, add the dried up lavender and mix that in too. Tiny hint – sprinkle some dried lavender in your mold before you pour the mixture in - it’s really creative!
Tiny hint – you can use some lavender essential oil if you prefer, 4 drops, and mix it in, but I’m going all natural in this recipe, so I’ll skip the essential oils.
- Your 4th Step :– Now, all you need to do is pour the mixture into your mold, wait for 48 hours, and voila! Your spring Egyptian soap is ready to use!
Great, you’ve done it! Just like an Egyptian!
Happy Soapy to You......
