Eucalyptus Mint Goat's Milk Soap

Here's what I've been working on this week... It's a beautiful mix of eucalyptus and mint EOs, layered green and white with a failed attempt at white texturing on the top which I hid underneath calendula petals. In the end it turned out beautiful and no one will ever know the hardships of trying to do a textured top on this soap!

Since it's made with goat's milk instead of water, I tried to prevent gelling by froze it for one day, then putting it on the fridge for another day to "defrost" and now it's been sitting on my worktable for about two days and is still too soft to cut. I'll wait two more days to see what happens. For once I'm glad the temp outside has dropped a bit, that way I don't have to worry about the soap suddenly deciding to gel :)

It smells just absolutely wonderful and I can't wait to try it!

On another note, it seems I can request a review of my case in the local government's office, that way I might get approved to have the shop where I live. I really don't want to have to rent!!

Wish me luck!
