How can you make a soap out of breastmilk that is gentle on the skin?
Soap made from breast milk is certainly not something you would see yourself using, but why not? And if you’re someone who struggles with sensitive skin, you should give this a try as soon as possible! Let’s get into more specifics and figure out how to create a soap out of breast milk, shall we?
The following are the ingredients and instructions:
1) Let your milk thaw out.
Put the containers into the warm water, then wait for them to defrost and reach room temperature before removing them.
2) Chop the soap.
Cut your melt-and-pour soap to approximately one inch in size.
3) Melt the soap.
If you choose to melt the soap straight in the microwave, do it in a bowl that is safe for the microwave in the highest setting for intervals of 30 seconds. Take it out of the oven and give it a little stir before returning it to the oven (hey, that’s really quite similar to melting chocolate).
4) Add your milk
After the chocolate has completely melted, pour in your milk. Gently stir the mixture until it is entirely combined and smooth.
5) Put some extras
If you are going to be utilizing any colorants or perfumes, now is the time to add them. Try to be a bit creative and playful!
6) Pour the mixture right into the molds and allow it to set.
Place your molds on something stable (you could use a cooling rack for cookies), and then pour your soap into them.
7) Give it time to ‘settle’ a bit
Try to be patient, put your soup in the fridge, and wait for one hour. After that, remove it from the molds and allow it to air dry for a little while.
You may use them right away, but you should be aware that they will “melt” almost instantly. Make an effort to let them dry a bit more in the refrigerator for as long as possible (it’s quite irresistible not to use it, right?!).
