A heady, sensual blend of floral Ylang Ylang and exotic Bulgarian Lavender make this handmade goat milk soap an ideal gift for women, and the adorable sassy cats are the perfect thoughtful gift for a cat lover.    

This recipe is made with my own hand-milked goat milk, local lard from a friend's sustainable small farm that I render myself, and a little coconut oil and of course lye - that's it! (Check out my FAQ section at the bottom of the page for why there is lye in soap).  I love this soap, in fact I used to make this as a regular, non-goat milk soap, but then made a batch with goat milk for a custom order and loved it so much I decided to convert my lard soaps to goat milk-lard soaps.  It is nicely moisturizing, cleans really well with no residue, and has a great lather! 

This bar is available in either molded bars of slinky cats or a sleeping woman, or a plain square bar, all approximately 4 oz (squares are as much as 4.7 oz), and a travel-size 2 oz molded dragonfly bar that is great for gift-giving as well.  The molded bars come in a brown windowed paperboard box with complete labels, and the dragonfly is packaged in a hand-folded brown paper origami box with a matching lid.  The plain square bar comes hand-wrapped in brown paper with labels as well. 

I handmake all my soap in small batches, 6 to 36 bars at a time.  If you have used a good handmade soap before, you know that it is a completely different creature than commercial soap, which can be so drying!  When soap is made by hand, the chemical reaction of oils with a lye solution forms the substances soap and glycerin.  A typical bar of handmade soap is roughly 1/3 glycerin!  This is a humectant, meaning it pulls water from the air - when on your skin, it literally moisturizes your skin by attracting water to it.  In commercial soaps, the glycerin is distilled and removed, and later sold back to you in a lotion, but in the "real thing", it is all one package.  I used to use lotions and moisturizers a lot, especially in the winter, but I virtually never use them anymore, other than some of my tallow body balm on my hands occasionally, and my lip balm or lip blush all year-round!
