Create skin-loving decadent goat milk soap using farm-fresh goats milk!
Goat milk soap is decadent, with a lotion-like lather! It is one of my favorite types of soap to make. Milk contains natural sugar, which can boost lather and create a super-sudsy bar of soap.
This natural sugar can also cause your soap to discolor and heat-up, causing all sorts of issues. I’ll show you how to dodge these issues and create a soap that is light and creamy in color.
Avoid over-heating and soap volcanoes with the knowledge in this course.

Why goat milk soap?
Goat milk soap is decadent and creamy, with a lotion-like lather.
Goat milk contains vitamins and minerals, which can be beneficial to the skin, and provides soothing relief to those with sensitive skin or eczema.
Goat milk contains sugar in the form of lactose which provides a wonderfully rich lather.
For those who sell their homemade soap at craft shows or in online shops, goat milk soap is a fan favorite. Adding goat milk soap to your product line could boost your sales, especially if you have a goat dairy farm and are looking for ways to use the excess goat milk.

Amanda consistently offers great training materials and takes the guesswork out of making soap. I love this goat milk video. I can go back and review and listen to her commentary and benefit from her experience.

Wow! Amanda was able to teach so much about the making of goat milk soaps in such a concise, informative and down to earth way! I wish I would have started here instead of finding her a couple of years after starting my soap making process. These goat milk soap methods would have allowed me to jump right in and start making beautiful, natural goat milk soaps with so much more confidence. Amanda breaks the basic goat milk processes down into simple applications that allow the user to understand the process in a no frills kind of way. Thank you Amanda Gail for providing your ebooks at a great price with so much information and easy to follow instructions for guaranteed success.

Six years ago I sat with all my soap making equipment intimidated for 8 months because I didn’t connect with any of the tutorials or videos I had read or watched. At 2am one sleepless night, I stumbled upon Aaron’s goats’ milk soap blog post. Her instructions were clear, concise, and blasted throughthe fog of what I thought I had to do when handling the goats’ milk and lye that was holding me back. And I’ve been on a roll ever since.
I’m so happy she’s compiled both methods for utilizing goats’ milk -and other milks- in soap making in one book.
Her instructions are clear.
The book is packed with information.
The videos feel like I’m in a friend’s kitchen learning about soap.
It’s clear the book is grounded in her vast experience of soap making. The techinal information, and explanation of techniques are valuable. From watching the videos and reading the book, I picked up a few tricks I tried this afternoon while soaping that I’ll definitely keep doing.
I highly recommend this book and the videos for anyone looking to work with goats’ milk soaps -and other milks too!

I can’t believe the amount of information Amanda was able to pack into this book. Included are step-by-step detailed instructions for 2 ways to make goat milk soap (I’m a fan of the milk-in-oil method), 2 videos, and a ton of recipes and scent blends. Read and watch carefully, Amanda give many tips as she writes and talks. (What to do if your stick blender is making a lot of bubbles, what that film is on top of your lye solution). If you want to learn how to make any kind of milk soap, this is the resource you need in your soap making library.
