Lemon Goat Milk Melt & Pour Bars

Are you a melt and pour soap maker who would like to bring a bit more zig to your bars of soap?  Check out this melt and pour project from The Soap Queen called Lemon Goat Milk Melt & Pour.   Goat Milk is a popular soap making ingredient that creates a lush lather and leaves your skin feeling soft. It contains capric-caprylic triglyceride, which is a fatty acid that helps skin form a barrier to inhibit the loss of moisture.  To get the benefits of goats milk to your soap, you need to purchase a soap base that contains goat milk.
The fresh smell of lemon comes from the lemon essential oil and the texture comes from the lemon peel.

This project is off the beaten trail of bath and body products, but I thought it was definately a cute and easy idea for an air freshener project.   This DIY project from Natural Foodie is titled DIY Air Freshener is great if you suffer from allergies or you are trying to avoid the chemicals and synthetics in commercial air freshners.
