Deep Purple Lavender Goat’s Milk Soap

This soap features a blend of olive, coconut, palm, and castor oil, with cocoa butter and avocado oil added for their skin nourishing qualities. Goat’s milk is used for its moisturizing and emollient properties as well as for the smooth and creamy lather. The primary scent comes from lavender essential oil, with base notes from patchouli. Tea tree essential oil is added for its beneficial properties.

Please refer to the cold process instructions here [1] if you are new to making soap. Always take the proper safety precautions (we wear rubber gloves and goggles when mixing and making the soap).
