Ethical Jane – A Palm Free Goat Milk Soap

I occasionally make a goat-milk soap that is just “plain jane” (no colorants, fragrance, etc).  It was because of the plain nature of it that I decided to call the soap “Jane“.

I have begun making my soaps palm free, however, so my old recipe had to be re-done.   This one is palm free and I call her “Ethical Jane”.

Menagerie – Vacation Round-Up

Hi all!  I have been away for a couple of weeks.  I needed a break from work and from book writing, and maybe a little bit from creating too.   I took 2 weeks to do just “whatever” instead of having a plan.  Sometimes that is good for the soul!

My plans were somewhat interrupted due to the recent hurricanes and preparations for the next ones.  This made me have a “working vacation” since it caused some extra work at work.  At least I got to enjoy some free time in between “on call” events.

I started out  last weekend with a quick visit “up north” to see my sister, nieces, and deliver all the goodies I have been making them.    It was a nice trip, a beautiful day, and very enjoyable.  Needless to say everything I gifted them was well-received.  Especially the bath bombs — always the bath bombs!

A Goat Milk Soap Called “Jane”

I think my husband was a monk in a previous life.  He likes everything plain and simple.   The same holds true for his soap.   He likes plain, un-fancy, un-scented soap.   He will accept goat milk, even though it might be a little bit sinfully decadent.

Last week I made him a batch of plain-jane goat milk soap and this week it was finally ready to unmold and cut.

Saturday Soap

I am so happy that it’s Saturday again.   Weekdays go by so slowly lately, that it seems Saturdays are not very often, even though they occur once a week.   However, on Saturday, I am enjoying myself, so they go by so fast it’s like they didn’t even happen.

My favorite thing to do on a Saturday is to make soap.   Today I got to make 2 batches. Continue reading “Saturday Soap”
