Batch 104


My first attempt with chunks! And also my first attempt with real fresh goat milk. It has been a challenge finding ingredients in this little part of southern Spain. Some are plentiful - lavender grows in the fields here... fresh hand-picked oranges... olive oil is abundant and inexpensive... beeswax... honey... but most of the rest I have to import. I thought that fresh Goat milk would be easy to find as there are so many shepherds around but it wasn't! I had been using partly skim goat milk from the supermarket (the only one they had). But using the fresh stuff? Wow. It is gorgeous and creamy. Can't wait for 4 weeks to go by so that I can try using it!! This soap has half distilled water and half fresh Goat Milk. Hope you like it!!

Muchas gracias. Combraba leche de cabra en el supermercado al principio pero al final encontre un pastor que me da leche de cabra fresca! Es buenisimo. He visto que mucha gente usa Titatium Dioxide en sus jabones para hacerlos mas blancos? Nunca lo he usado. Tu? He estado muchas veces en Mexico y mi hija a todos los anos (no tengo acentos en este teclado) para Queretaro a visitar a sus abuelos. Donde estas en Mexico? xo Jen
