Here is the Oatmeal/ Goatmilk/Honey soap I made for the shower. It made ALOT of soap

Lathers wonderful too , feels great on my hands This is not my recipe , I found it on the web. I just added the oatmeal and changed the fragrance.  This set up very nicely and the soap looks/smells GREAT happy-flower

 Milk and Honey Soap Recipe – Cold Process

48 ounces shortening

22 ounces coconut oil

16 ounces olive oil

24 oz. cold water

12 oz. lye crystals


Temperatures: around 100 degrees

 After incorporating the lye solution with the oils, add:

12 oz. can evaporated milk, warmed (for lighter colored soap with firmer texture, you can use only 6 oz. evaporated milk and increase the water by 2-4 ounces)


At light trace, I mixed in:

1  cup oatmeal finely ground in processor, add 1/4 c -ish at a time mix well then add more until all is incorporated. You could  add more based on your liking as this is a large soap batch.

then I added 1T warm honey

1oz of Oatmeal/Honey Frag. oil

I thought you had to freeze milk before using it in soap
