Rainy days are a good time to make soap. I made 4 new batches, and used up all of my frozen goat milk stash. It looks like no more soaping with goat milk until more is available, which should be soon. Ember is looking VERY pregnant, and due to kid in about 2 1/2 weeks.
In addition to making soap, Connor and I hauled a load of square bales up the hill, trimmed all the goat's hooves, applied organic fertilizer (fish emulsion) to the garlic bed, and gave Callie a much needed bath.
The latest creations are drying and will be ready very soon. As you can see, I'm getting braver and experimenting with layering and natural clay colorants. All of these are hand made using goat milk from Ember and Alita and other natural ingredients. The only 'unnatural' ingredient I have used is the occasional fragrance oil. Most of the time I stick to essential oils, and sometimes no scent.
Todays soaps are still hardening in the molds.
