DIY – Handmade Natural Goat Milk Soap



Making soap of any kind is fairly simple. Goat milk soap is no exception. Homemade soap can be a welcome addition to anyone bathing routine, especially for someone with sensitive skin.

Goat milk soap is a very moisturizing, soft soap and not that difficult to make. Follow some simple instructions and make goat milk soap for home use or to give away as gifts.

Lye and Borax are available at the grocery stores, make sure that the lye can states 100 per cent lye. Before you buy the lye, shake the can and listen to it to make sure it is free flowing for easy handling, and has no lumps in it. Borax – this boots cleaning ability, soften the water and helps with suds-ing. Liquid Glycerin is available at drug stores. Glycerin gives the soap more moisturizing qualities.

Lye heats the milk up very hot; the sugar in the milk will “caramelize” and the soap will be tan in color. Soap made with 100% lard will not lather a whole lot, but make a good cleaning, very gentle, moisturizing soap. Lathering and cleaning ability have nothing to do with one another.



  • 3 pints of ice cold goat milk
  • 1 12 oz. can of Red Devil Lye
  • 5 1/2 pounds of lard
  • 2 oz. glycerin
  • 2 Tablespoon borax
  • 1/3 Cup Honey



*Take Note: Wear rubber gloves when handling lye.

Use a stainless steel pot for your soap making. Very slowly pour the lye into the ice cold milk, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. The milk will heat up very quickly due to the addition of the lye. If you add the lye too fast, the milk may scorch and curdle. The milk will turn an orange color and curdle a little bit but do not worry, add the honey. Let the mixture cool down to 85°.


While the lye and milk mixture is cooling, warm the lard to 90°. Slowly pour the lard into the lye and milk mixture, stirring constantly, and add the glycerin and borax.


The best thing to stir soap with is an electric hand held “stick blender” because you really need to stir the soap mixture to get it to “trace”. The slower your stirring is, the longer it will take to trace. You cannot just stop or go away and let it sit because if you do not stir constantly, the soap will never “trace”.


Add the glycerin and borax and keep stirring until the mixture starts to thicken like thin pudding nice “traces”. The mixture “traces” when a small amount of the solution drizzled across the top of the main solution’s surface leaves a faint pattern before sinking back into the mass. A trace should be reached within 10 to 20 minutes of hand stirring, or 5 to 10 minutes of stirring with a “stick blender”.


Add any essential oils you wish to add to the soap at this point. Stir it in well.


Pour the mixture into your molds. Cover the top of the molds with a cloth such as cheesecloth and then cover it with a blanket. Leave it undisturbed overnight.


The next day you can cut the soap into bars using fishing line. Stack the bars on a cookie sheet lined with a large paper bag. It is not ready to use yet; the mixture needs to saponify and cure. Let the soap cure by air-drying it for at least 6 weeks before using or giving away.






Tips on Getting Kids to Drink Goat Milk


Here are ways parents and caregivers can use to ensure their kids get the required amount of goat milk each day.  It is not always easy to encourage kids to drink goat milk, but it is good for them. Therefore, try turning plain goat milk into flavored milk to get kids to drink more milk. It has the same ingredients as plain goat milk. If your kids do not like plain goat milk try the other alternatives listed below.


  1. Serve goat milk chilled, the way kids like it. Pour it right before serving and promptly return the container to the refrigerator so the goat milk maintains its flavor.
  2. Be a role model. When children see you drink goat milk, they are more likely to drink it, too
  3. Serve goat milk at meals. Set expectations ahead of time that goat milk is the beverage of choice at meal times.
  4. Serve flavored goat milk at home like the addition of fruits juice, coffee or tea. Kids love it, and gramme for gramme it has the same nutrients as unflavored milk. Coffee and tea flavored milk has gained substantial popularity among adults. The most common and equally popular practice is the addition of milk in coffee or tea.
  5. Stock the fridge with single-serve containers of goat milk that can be packed easily for when they have outings or go to school.
  6. Serve goat milk in special glasses and with a straw. Let older kids use mix-ins to create a new milk flavor.
  7. Let children use a straw to drink the goat milk left in the bowl after finishing their cereal.
  8. Order Goat Milk  or low-fat flavored milk in kid-friendly, single-serve containers instead of soda when eating out.
  9. Remind children to drink milk with school lunch. Studies show that when children drink milk at lunch, they have higher intakes of several critical nutrients, including calcium, zinc and vitamin A.
  10. Pack a milk carton along with their food for school recess.
  11. Heat the goat milk. If your kids are having trouble sleeping, make them a cup of hot milk. People say a glass of warm milk will help anyone sleep, so pour out a cup of milk and either put it in the microwave for a minute or heat it in a saucepan on your stove.

With the increasing awareness on good health, many people are switching over to goat milk and coffee-flavoured goat milk. The calcium, casein and phosphorous in goat milk may protect teeth against cavities.






Goat Milk Whey Powder



Goat milk whey powder is a unique product! Goat whey is a by-product in the production of cheese from goat milk.


Goat whey powder is obtained by concentrating and drying the whey produced during the manufacture of goat cheese. If so required, the whey can be partially desalted prior to drying.


Suppliers of whey powder offer a mixed whey powder, made from whey powder based on different sorts of milk. But  goat milk whey powder is made from pure goat milk whey without the additions of other sorts of milk whey powder.


What are the benefits of goat whey?


Goat whey contains approximately half of the milk sugars (lactose) compared to cow milk and, in addition, a richer amount of protein, vitamins and minerals. Goat whey contains greater amounts of amino acids like linoleic acid and arachidonic acid, as compare to cow whey. Goat whey contains bioorganic sodium, which the body can use to keep the joints limber and reduce inflammation in the joints.


In addition, goat whey powder and partially desalted goat whey powder can be used as an ingredient in children’s and dietary foods, in dairy products,  such as yoghurt, in bakery products, in confectionery, and in sectors like healthcare and pharmaceutical products.
