Goats milk and honey

Goats milk is designed to nourish the skin with its moisturising properties and the honey adds a sweet fragrance.

Lavender and vanilla

lavender is a calming scent however can be overpowering if used in too higher quantities. In soap if you have it in the garden this would be such a good natural fragrance to use.

Tea Tree and Poppy Seed

Tea tree is a natural medicine used to treat conditions such as acne. Therefore in soap this would be a great natural oil to use to apply directly to the skin as an anti-inflammatory With poppy seeds, medicinal oil can be extracted from them.

Argan oil and shea butter

Both of these natural extracts have moisturising properties and help the skin to glow.

Argan oil and honey

The meaning of ROSE QUARTZ: Healing properties of spiritual crystals

The Meaning of ROSE QUARTZ

Rose quartz is used for love and to create harmony in relationships. Known as the stone of love it supports unconditional love, particularly promoting self-love and deep inner feelings of worth and peace.

In the body

The rose quartz is used to heal the heart, remove toxic emotional blockages and replace them with nothing but peace and love. In a way it creates space for new, positive thoughts to aid the healing process. It is also one of the main stones used to aid depression and empower more feelings of self-love towards that person.

How to make Goats milk and Honey soap: Homemade, organic and natural

So today I decided to give this a go and it was so easy and literally all it is, is ‘melt and pour’! I know this is the simplest method but hopefully I can use this to experiment with different fragrances. You can also add vitamins to this but I thought I would keep it easy considering it was my first attempt.

What You Need

  • Melt and Pour Goats milk soap mix
  • Organic Honey
  • silicone Mould
  • Some colouring
  • Bowl and spoon

Step One

Use 0.5KG of Melt and Pour Goats milk Soap mix and cut into squares. Place into a bowl and melt down. You can either do this in the microwave or oven a pan of water on the hob.

Step Two

Add the honey into the melted soap mix. Use 4 tablespoons of this depending on how strong you want this you made need slightly more or less. The quality of the honey you use will have an effect on the end fragrance. I used organic honey to keep this soap natural and also get the strong sweet smells.

Step Three

Use the spoon to mix the honey and the Goats milk Soap mix in a bowl. Make sure you don’t let this mixture set as when I made this it set quite quickly.

Step Four

Pour the soap mix into your chosen mould. If you have lumps in the mixture (which you shouldn’t have) you can pour through a sieve into the mould.

Step Five

Leave anywhere between 30mins and 2hours for the soap to set in the mould. This will depend on how deep the mould. Once set, turn is out and leave for a further hour to harden.

The Natural Life

Welcome to my blog, where I will be sharing of my experiences of my discovery of the natural world, and peel back the fast-paced society that we now live in. Breaking life down to its core, to show off the natural world. On a journey to discover what we can do with the elements we were first given, embrace a more natural and homemade life and to see the worlds most untouched patches.

My aim is to educate myself in what I can do to make my life more homemade using natural ingredients and get the most of the health benefits the earth has handed us. Although I am studying as a Student Paramedic, I do believe that treatments other than medications should be used in conjunction to treat patients and their wellbeing.

Starting by looking into homemade soaps and the health benefits of using natural ingredients over some harsher chemicals that are used in the cosmetics industry; by the end of my research I will hopefully be able to make my own. Eventually I hope to expand to review methods being used currently to make our world more sustainable with the aim to retain some of its natural beauty.
