Handmade Goats Milk Soap


I love handmade soap! I have wanted to make soap in forever but it always seems so daunting. Do you feel that way too? Well, I found a sweet lady, whom I found on one of these link parties, that had made some bars of soap and she inspired me to make some. Please check her blog out here, Confessions of a Plate Addict, you will love it. She shares the whole process for making the soap, which is very easy.


Mine doesn't look like hers because I used a different spice but I still love it and it smells awesome!


I copied her except for the Apple Pie Spice, which I could not find, weird I know. 


So I substituted it for spice in a tea bag that worked just fine, called Tazo organic baked cinnamon apple tea. It worked great, so if you need to substitute the pie spice, look in your tea stash.


I love how the soap turned out!! It smells great and the tea spice acts as an exfoliant. If you would like to make this easy recipe, just hop over to Confessions of a Plate Addict. She will show you the process of making this wonderful smelling and oh so easy soap!


Fall is a great time to make this soap and put it out on your counter in the guest bathroom. 


Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed the soap. Please stop by and visit Confessions of a Plate Addict and then go make some soap.

    1. Thank you Angie! You should try and make this. It's very easy, just look for essential oils she is not allergic to. I found the Goats milk at Hobby Lobby.

  3. I love homemade soap too, but haven't made any in years. My mother was the real expert at making these and I miss her so. I should have paid more attention when she was making them, but I did inherit all of her supplies.

  5. How fun! I recently saw a place near me where you can go for an afternoon and make soap and have tea (what a great combination), but it looks like you've got it down without the need for professional 'soap tutoring' - if there's such a thing. It looks great. I'd love it if you stopped by my link up with your post if you have time?

  16. Just found your blog via the party at Katherine's Corner and have really enjoyed looking around. I've made molded soaps using the Goats Milk soap base a few times and have loved how they turned out. I recently wrote a post about the soaps I made and said that I had intended to add some spice to scent the pumpkin shaped soaps, and then forgot as I got so involved with trying to achieve the right shade of orange as I was adding the colorant. My husband loves the soaps I've made but keeps telling me I should make them scented. Your post convinced me to make sure I add a spice of some sort to my next batch. The timing of this post was perfect asI just received a new set of shaped molds that I had ordered, so it is time to make another batch of seasonal soap. They make great little gifts or are just a fun way to spoil yourself and your family. Thanks for sharing!
