Citronella goat milk soap is made by hand in Pittsboro NC. Here are the steps used to make citronella goat milk soap:
1) Heat the goat milk.
2) Use a heat-proof container to measure the amount of crystal-clear cold spring water (70 to 75 degrees F) specified in the recipe. Cold water is important. If you add lye to hot or boiling water, the water could "boil-up" out of the container. If you add lye to *really* cold water, the lye/water might not reach the high temperatures required to make some recipes. Stir the water and slowly add the lye. The water will get hot and turn cloudy. Continue to stir until the lye dissolves. Don't breathe or intentionally smell the fumes coming from the cup because they are quite "chokey." If you wait too long to stir the water, the lye could harden in the bottom of the container. This is not a problem. You can still sitr it, but it will be more difficult. Add a glass or stainless steel thermometer to the lye/water and wait until it reaches the temperature specified in the recipe.
3) When both the goat milk and the lye/water reach the temperature specified in the recipe, add the lye/water to the goat milk. It's sometimes a balancing act to get the goat milk mixture and the lye/water mxiture to specific temperatures at the same time. Never place lye/water in a microwave (the cup could break).
4) Stir the soap until it "traces."
5) Pour the goat milk soap into molds and wait for it to harden. The recipes states this length of time as 'time in mold.'
6) Unmold the soap.
7) Wait the time specified in a recipe for the goat milk soap to"age" (usually 3 weeks). During the aging time the pH of the goat milk soap decreased (the soap becomes mild) and the bars harden. By this time ALL THE LYE IS GONE. It underwent a chemical transformation into a non-toxic substance.
8) I now regrind the goat milk soap and melt it down again using more goat milk. This is when I add the Vitamin E and Citronella Essential Oil. After allowing it to cool
