Or Oatmeal? This time of the year is the worst for me in the dry skin department, and my tattoos are itching like mad! So I figure I can't be the only one in this predicament. I use Aveeno lotion and that keeps me from becoming a scratching lunatic during the day, but I'd really love to make a good soap to help the process. Pretty much willing to try anything, except Shea butter/base, not a fan of how it feels. Any help or recommendations greatly appreciated!!!!! Grin

try adding a tablespoon of powder skim milk to MP goat milk base, and add about .4 oz of fo/eo.

I'd add a tablespoon or so of olive oil to a pound of your goat's milk base.  Grin

In the words of Homer... D'OH!!! Olive oil would make sense, I love to cook with it, its a main ingredient in my shampoo.... so why not use it in soap! I'm wondering too, if I use the goat milk base, with some olive oil, and I added some ground up oatmeal to it, or would that be overkill ya think?

I'm also wondering if the olive oil would color the bar too? Since its for me I'm not too concerned, but I think it would be hysterical if it turned the color of fungus Roll Eyes.

And being the geeky person I am...I googled olive oil properties and found this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olive_oil#Skin_care. Has anybody tried this OCM method?

I've heard of that but never tried it. Let us know if you do!

It just depends on how dark your olive oil is, since you would be using such a small amount I don't think it would really discolor it.

I think oatmeal added along with it would be awesome! Make sure to grind it fairly fine and not use too much. Wink
