1 ONO Soapmaking Kit (go to the bottom of this post to know how to buy the kit)
33g Pure Unadulterated Honey
134g Goat's Milk
Big Mixing Bowl (Plastic or Stainless Steel Only; Must be able to hold 4-5 kilos of liquid)
Small Mixing Bowl
Small Egg Whip
Mask (surgical mask will do)
PRELIMINARY: Before you begin, make sure you are wearing the safety equipment mentioned above. And make sure to keep children out of the soapmaking area. Why do you have vinegar in the list? If you have a splatter, dip a piece of paper towel into the vinegar and use it to wipe the splatter off.
Now, you can begin.
1. Open the ONO Soapmaking Kit and take out the 3 pouches inside. Pour the contents of Pouch No. 1 into your big mixing bowl and mix for 2 minutes.
2. Set aside Pouch No. 2. For purposes of this recipe, YOU WILL NOT USE the contents of this pouch.
3. Add the honey and the milk into the big mixing bowl and mix using your stick blender for 3-5 minutes. Make sure the milk is not frozen. If it is frozen, mix until the ice dissolves completely. Mix until the mixture is smooth and has no more lumps from either the honey or the milk. Do not proceed to the next step until you are sure.
4. Open Pouch No. 3 and pour the contents into another (smaller) mixing bowl. Stir the liquid gently with your egg whip. Then, set your strainer above your big mixing bowl and slowly pour the contents of your small mixing bowl through the strainer, adding the contents of the small mixing bowl into your mixture.
5. Mix the liquids together until you reach trace. This can take anywhere between 5 to 10 minutes, depending on the speed of your stickblender. You know you have reached trace because the mixture will thicken and will look like pancake batter.
6. Pour the batter into individual moulds and set aside for 5 days.
7. Remove the hardened soaps from the moulds and set on a table or counter lined with paper. If your soaps need to be cut, you may cut them at this time. Dry individual soap bars for 1 or 2 weeks more.
Makes about 2 kilos of natural soap.
Note: The soaps may be used after having been cured for 5 days, but they will be soft. If you want your soaps to be harder, allow it to cure for a full 3 weeks.
