Goat’s Milk Soap with Sandalwood, Bamboo, and Clay


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!)

  1. The two-toned bars sound amazing and really different!

    • Thanks! I love the look of the two-tone bars and they worked great too! I was able to get the benefit of the activated charcoal without having a messy bar of soap.
