Come to the farm to learn to make Soap and Lotion with milk from our own goats!  You’ll learn to make an all natural goat’s milk and olive oil soap and goat’s milk and coconut oil lotion.  You’ll take home everything you make!  Once you take your soap home, cut it and cure it, you’ll have 20-24 bars and you’ll take home about 8 oz of lotion.  You’ll also make a preservative-free goat milk lotion bar!  $80 per person.

We use the cold process method, mixing lye with the goat’s milk.  Because of the precautions required in making lye based soap, we cannot allow children under the age of 16 at the class.  But, you are welcome to come and then teach your kids at home!

Some supplies are required (see below).

Students Provide The Following Supplies for Soap/Lotion Class: 

Tall Stainless steel pot. (Arc), Wooden spoon, Candy Thermometer (Walmart or Ace or Grocery Store), Hand Held Electric Blender (Ace), Rubber dishwashing gloves (Playtex or generic), Eye Protection (sunglasses work fine), 2 Rubber Spatulas.  (All of these items will be used only for soap making in the future…you may not want to cook with them again, so be sure they are things you don’t mind giving up in the name of soap making.)

The Goat Cheese Lady will provide all other supplies.

 

Soap And Lotion Class Graduates!!

Sandy and Gloria graduated from the Soap and Lotion class on January 8, 2011.  They had both attended soap making classes at other locations before, but had never made Goat Milk Soap!  Sandy is a chemistry teacher and plans to teach other teachers how to do it in April!

“The goat’s milk soap making class was a delicious experience – as delicious as the goat’s milk itself.  The small class size made the experience very hands on and allowed for lots of questions.  Lindsey has clearly mastered the art of soap and lotion making and the use of her own goat’s milk really brings this craft home!”   –  Sandy and Gloria

 

Barbara and Janet graduated from the Soap and Lotion Making Class on December 4, 2010!

They are sisters and plan to take the Just Cheese Making class also!

“Healthy!  Fun!  Learning experience!!  Love goats!!  Teacher was so great and patient with everything!  Getting back to earthy living and the basics.”    -Janet

“I loved the class.  I loved that Lindsey was so careful about chemical usage.  I have taken other classes before and this was by far the best!  So educational at the same time fun.  Can’t wait for the cheese class!”        –  Barbara

Trina graduated from the Soap and Lotion Making Class on December 5, 2010.

“I am pleased with all the soaps and lotion I made in one afternoon!”

  3. Rosie says:

    Sandy & Gloria, are you ladies interest in presenting a web classes or ever thought about it? I’m in Dallas Texas no such class here for goat owners and would love to attend your classes. Unfortunately, I can’t travel due to work and no vacation time.
    Please let me know I’ll be very interested.

  4. Rebecca says:

    I have tried to contact you about your next soap making class but have never heard back. When is your next class, how long and the cost?

    • Rebecca, I hope you received my voice mail messages, but it sounds like you didn’t. I schedule the classes when I have two or more people interested. What would be a good date for you? I have a few other people who are interested too! Lindsey

  5. Jen Hill says:

    When is your next class? How much does it cost? Where exactly are you located?

    • Hi Jen, I schedule the soap and lotion making classes upon request, and as long as we have at least 2 people signed up, it’s a go! So, why don’t you look at your calendar and see if you can find someone to take it with and give me a all, we’ll get it set up! It costs $80 per person, you go home with with two batches of soap that become 20 bars. We are located on the west side of Colorado Springs, just south of the Garden of the Gods. Lindsey

    I loved your class and have recommended it to many already. Just wondering if you have ever used these oils from this company. A friend wants me to use them and they seem low priced

    Do you have a lotion recipe you would share? I milk 400 goats for a living and can’t get away for a class as much as I want to. Have never really found a web site on goat’s milk lotions recipes specifically. Thanks for any help!

    • The lotion I make is actually a lotion bar that doesn’t have preservatives and I keep in the refrigerator. If you google goat’s milk lotion recipes, you’ll come up with a few different options. Good luck! Lindsey

  8. This is very interesting to me. I just probably wouldn’t be able to make it there.

  9. Linda Craig says:

    I am interested in learning to make goats milk lotion. I have made it but just am not pleased with it and think I need a class. When is your next one, and how much? Thanks Linda

    • Linda, Why don’t you give me a call, we can talk about your lotion experience and find out if the class would be a good idea. I schedule them for 2 people or more, on request. My number is 719-651-9819. Talk to you soon! Lindsey

  10. Hi Lindsey,

    I found this link to your fantastic and inspiring cheesemaking post while visiting the Peaceful Acres Farm Facebook Wall today. (I just learned how to make truffles myself a week ago and must try your recipe!) It is so fantastic that you milk your own goats, grow a garden and teach and empower others to make their own cheese, soaps and lotions!

    I make soap and it turns out great; but I am having trouble with my lotion. It is too thin or it seperates. What can I do????

  12. Nancy says:
