When making a goat milk lotion it is very important that the goat milk is as fresh as you can get it and that you don't use more than 12% of the recipe volume. INGREDIENTS: 3% butter 15% soft oils 12% Goat Milk 5% Emulsifying Wax 65% Water On top of this you will need 1% (or whatever is the high end your preservative's recommended usage & 1% fragrance or essential oils. Now let's make it. For the oils you need to create a Bain Marie or double boiler. To make a Bain Marie/double boiler put a smaller pot into a larger pot. These should be double handled so they will sit flat. Put water in the bottom pot which is what is going to melt your oils. Oil Phase: Butter, oil, emulsifying wax go into your Bain Marie. Bring the water to a medium boil and once everything is melted keep it that temperature for 20 minutes. Water Phase: Put your water and milk into a large pot and weigh this. Put onto a slow boil, we are looking to sterilize the milk and water. Just a note here, some people like to use bottled water, I personally am happy with my tap water, so this is a personal choice. Once the oils have been tempered for the 20 minutes, weigh your water pot and add back in what you have lost through evaporation with boiling water. Now add the oils into the water and stickblend for a couple of minutes. Continue to check temperature and stickblend when you do. I like to fill the sink with icy cold water to drop the temperature a little quicker. Be careful that you don't make the pot float. Once the lotion has cooled to less than 30* Celcius you will add your preservative and fragrance/essential oil. Give it a good stickblend for at least 2 minutes and then pour into your bottles. This does make a nice thick lotion.
