Lisa and I are starting to learn how to make soap. With all we read about the lye and all, we were kind of hesitant to try it. But with all the fresh goats milk, that I have been hand milking, why not give it a try.
So we finally found a recipe and decided to give it a try. A quick run to the store for some final supplies. If you know us we are laughing at how this is going to turn out. We figured it would be a complete fail.
We decided to do a basic recipe and use water. Basic ingredients with, oatmeal, honey, and lavender. Didn't want to waste our good milk on our crazy mistakes. LOL!
Imagine this. Two crazy ladies in the kitchen with yellow dish washing gloves and safety goggles on. LOL! Glad no one was there with a camera. We were more worried about the Lye. Almost everything we ready had CAUTION on it everywhere. Needless to say we were starting to second guess this brilliant idea we had. But with all the other ideas, we proceeded forward with a "why the hell not."
Make a long story short. WE DID IT!!! Wasn't for sure if it was going to mold correctly but it did. Lisa sent me pics the next day and we have lots of soap. HEHEHE! We love it.
It is so much fun. So next weekend we are on to using milk and going forward with it.
The Lord is making this all work out for us. Everything seems to be falling into place. Who ever thought two crazy ladies, with crazy ideas could make a great team.
Our lesson for the month. Never give up on anything, Keep going, The Lord works in Mysterious Ways.
He brought us together for a reason, and who would ever think it would be to work together making soap and raising goats and rabbits.
