I have wanted to get into soap making, and I heard one of the best soaps for your skin is milk soap. Do you have an advice/ tips for a beginner like me?

Also, how scary is it to work with lye? I heard it's pretty intimidating...

One tube of chapstick will last you the rest of your life if you magically manage not to lose it.
Otherwise it's a one week supply AT BEST.

I definitely wouldn't do a first or second batch with milk since there are so many changes. Defintely do a few batches with water first. Look around here and there is some good info stickied in the top sections and read up on everything you can get your hands on!

Hey, I tried your coconut milk idea and it worked great!  I'm going to use it every time now..  I put the can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight, added half the amount of water to the lye, and mixed in the coconut milk after I added the lye to the oils.  I didn't have a single problem, and I think the bars feel really soft.  Here's the link, thanks so much for the great idea!

they look gorgeous. I'm in awe of anyone who can make soap from scratch.

These are beautiful!  I'll have to try the piping on top sometime.
