I recently had some fun experimenting with different additives for my Goat’s Milk Melt & Pour soap. Our home supply was getting low, so it was a great excuse to try out new combinations. I ended up with three new soaps:
1. Goat’s Milk Soap with Sandalwood Extract. I was hoping that this soap would end up smelling of sandalwood, but the scent is not quite as strong as I would like. Perhaps I’ll add a couple of drops of essential oil in next time.
2. Goat’s Milk Soap with Bamboo Extract. The bamboo is quite grainy. I suspect that it’s going to work great as an exfoliating agent.
3. Two-toned Goat’s Milk Soap with Green Clay and Activated Charcoal. I love my charcoal soap, but I find that it’s quite messy in the shower. So, I made a two-toned soap and combined the charcoal with my other favorite, green clay. I scented this soap with lime essential oil. The bars smell very refreshing! Of course, every time I look at these bars, it makes me think of yet another favorite of mine, Nanaimo bars! Mmmm… (good thing I didn’t scent the bars with peppermint!)
