    Hey y'all! I need a goat milk lotion and a goat milk yogurt recipe and yogurt making supplies. But I want yall to know I am going to try to sell these products, so if y'all made this recipe yourself, I am going to have to tweak it a bit so i am not completely making a profit off of your recipe. I tried to make a lotion but the oils and the milk separated. It was weird... Here is the recipe i tried
    • 10.2 Oz Distilled Water
    • 10.2 Oz Raw Goat Milk (you can use frozen milk, just let it thaw)
    • 1.2 Oz Emulsifying Wax
    • 3.5 Oz Oils (below is what I use)
      • 2.7 Oz Coconut Oil
      • .8 Oz Almond Oil
    • 1.2 Oz Shea Butter
    • .3 Oz Optiphen (a preservative that keeps mold and other yuck from growing)
    • .2 Oz Essential Oils
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1. Combine coconut oil, almond oil, and shea butter in your pot. Heat them until just melted.
    2. Add the emulsifying wax to the melted oil mixture and heat everything until the wax melts.
    3. Remove pot from heat.
    4. Combine the oil and wax mixture with milk and water. Blend everything with the immersion blender for 4-5 minutes until mixture is slightly thickened.
    5. Add optiphen and your essential oils, blend for 1 additional minute. The mixture will thin back out at this point, that’s okay.
    6. Pour mixture into the containers of your choice and allow to cool. The mixture will thicken back up at room temp
    I also need yogurt recipes and i need links to supplies i am going to need to make yogurt

    Lotion: 18 oz distill water ( I use 10% goats milk here..so 1.8 goats milk, rest water to equal 18 oz)
    1.2oz Shea butter or *Kpagnan Butter ( I prefer the Kpagnan for a smooth powder like feel)
    1.7 oz Sweet almond oil
    1 oz Avocado oil
    1.2 oz E wax
    1 oz . Steric acid
    .2 oz ( point 2) Phenonip preservative.
    1 oz Fragrance or Ess. oil

    1. In double broiler heat butter oils, e wax and steric acid until melted and smooth
    2. warm water/milk to approx same temp as water/milk.

    Mix the two until well blended. I use a whisk. Once well blended and smooth check temp. Should not be warmer than 140 degree to add your preservative and fragrance/ EO. Once temp is below 140..add the preservative and your choice fragrance or EO. Whisk well to blend. I find orange eo take longer to blend in. Pour while still warm and fluid into your container. will thicken as it cools.

    70-80-% water ( no more then 10% milk)
    5-8% Steric acid
    3-6% E wax
    rest is butter and oils
    Point 5% fragrance/ eo and point5-1% Preservative

    A note: I tried other preservative with using goats milk. Phenonip has served well with preventing mold. with Germaben 11 I got pink mold.

    Enjoy. This recipe has been very popular among my clients when I made to sell.

    My yogurt recipie is very simple. I buy a small container of vanilla yogurt with live active cultures from the grocery store.
    Then I take 2 quarts of milk and heat to 188 degrees. I add 1/4 cup of sugar and stir well. Cool to 112 degrees add a half teaspoon of vanilla. Then I add one teaspoon of rennet water mixture. (3 TBS water +1 drop of rennet) stir in the store yogurt and then put in my yogurt maker. I go 9 hours and it works perfectly every time.

    Is it thick like a greek yogurt or a more thin one? Have you ever tried honey?

    Thick. Like pudding. Yes, but because I do an Airbnb I leave it out. Some children can't have honey.

    It helps thicken...I have heard it called a co-emulsifying agent.

    Do I heat the water/milk to the same temp as the oils? What does this mean?

    You were asking up there if the yogurt recipe was thick. We are Greek yogurt freaks in this house. When I make yogurt I put in in cheesecloth and drain it until it is as thick as I want. I will admit, however, I have never made goat milk yogurt so it may be different?

    Thank you! The recipe turned out great! I am headed up to Illinois tomorrow and will be gone for a week to visit my grandma, uncle, aunt, cousins, and my half brother and sister :gottago:, and i plan to give my grandma some lotion, because she LOVES the soap I make, and always sends me essential oils she wants in the soap (I dont even ask her to, she just gets bored i guess!) :p and of curse I will make a special batch just for her , and send her a few free bars (like 6 bars, so a little less than half the batch!) so i will be getting more EOs in the mail for lotion! Next is yogurt! :D (woot)
