Melt-and-pour goat milk soap is easy to find online and a staple ingredient in our cold pressed soapmaking.

I like being able to customize our shampoo bar recipe to use the oils best-suited for our hair types.

My young daughters and I used these pretty soap molds for our DIY natural shampoo bars.

They lather well, clean our hair gently but thoroughly, and are inexpensive.

We've experimented with adding geranium oil, rosemary oil, and substituting sweet almond oil for the castor oil.
