To begin with I made only vegan soap, but recently I decided to add a small selection of soap with goats milk. I had researched this well, but was still surprised to see how the soap batter changed colour as it gelled in the moulds.
This soap is made with olive oil, coconut oil, rice bran oil, castor oil, cocoa butter and local fresh South Australian goats’ milk.
These photos show the freshly poured goats milk soap ... and some photos as it progressed through the gelling process.
Here’s a photo of some of the goats that come to see me when I go to the goat farm to collect fresh milk.

I love reading the blogs listed on the right hand side of my page.
Yesterday I was reading Jenora Soaps blog, and read that she had received the Soap Package that was started on it’s world travel by Julia at Cocobong Soaps back in November 2011.
The idea is that a small package with three soaps in it will travel from one soaper to another and at each destination the receiver gets to choose one of the treasures in the parcel and replace it with a piece of their own work, then Julia will give you the next address and you send the parcel on it’s way again. I’m not sure how many people are involved, but at one stage there were 19 registered, but I'm sure there's more now and it was expected to take 266 days for everyone to receive the package once.
I think this is a fabulous way to share soap around the world.
At the bottom of Jen’s post I read ... The next destination the Soap Travel Package is off to is to Karen Hill in Australia. Oh Wow! Am I excited or what?
Now I'm counting the days until this package comes to me and I get to choose a soap and replace it with one of mine. Looking at Cocobong Soaps blog, I will be the 12th person to receive this special package. Oh Wow!
Swapping soaps is one of my mostest favourite things to do!
