    Special Goat milks soap for my GF!

    Honestly Jeff this is awful complicated recipe for beginner. I would rec make couple simpler batches before trying this. Such as 85 olive oil 10 coconut and 5 castor oil . Numbers are precents of oils. I dont use beeswax at all fyi.

    Would customers like bars this large?

    If you are shipping I highly rec the priority flat rate envelope. You can get serious bang for your buck with them and weight doesnt matter. Just a thought .
