Goat Milk Lotion Recipe

I've had a lot of success making creams but never mastered lotion making, until recently! Now that I have I wanted to make a simple goat milk lotion recipe.

  1. To begin making this goat milk lotion recipe, place all the oils, butter and wax in the larger stainless steel pot and heat until melted. Keep warm while you heat the milk.
  2. In the smaller stainless steel pot, heat the milk. Heat slowly, as the milk can scorch easily. You'll just need it warm, but not boiling.
  3. When both liquids are warm, carefully pour the milk into the oils. It should turn white to creamy in color. Stir a bit, then blend with the stick blender. Don't be surprised if the liquid stays liquid for a while and doesn't thicken. This is normal when it's warm. As it cools, it can start to develop thicker areas on the sides and bottom. It can also get lumpy. Don't worry about this either, it will all come together later.
  4. Once it cools a bit and starts to form thicker spots, you can add the preservative to the goat milk lotion recipe. (Doing so at higher temperatures may render it ineffective.) Be sure to blend this in well.
  5. As it cools, stick blend a few times. You'll soon start to notice it getting thicker, more like lotion. If you're pouring it into pump bottles, now is the time. You'll want it warm enough to still be pourable. Use a funnel and ladle or if it's thick enough, a pastry bag will work well. I make enough lotion that I purchased a stainless steel funnel with a trigger that I can proportion out amounts. It works very well when the mix is warm. When it's cool, it still works, but it takes more time. These methods will also work if you are putting it into jars, but you can wait until it's cooler and use a spatula or spoon to get it into the jars.
  6. Rather than a lid, cover the lotion containers with a sheet of wax paper and leave overnight. The reason for this is to allow the lotion to completely cool off. If there is any warmth left at all, this could cause condensation which could lead to mold or mildew.
  7. When the lotion is completely cool, place the pump top in your bottle (or top on the jar) and seal well. If the top is loose, this could also invite bacteria. Store in a cool, dry place that is out of the sunlight.
