Accidently found that Kefir is available is supermarket. Not only good for my body but also good to mix with soap.
Using Kefir in low temperature to dissolve lye. There are 10% of red palm oil, 20% sweet almond oil and Calendula infused olive oil to make this soap in dark orange. Extra moisturizing is expected.

Breast milk plus honey to help my skin to survive in winter.
The nettle leaves infused olive oil does not appear its green color, but the breast milk and honey turn the soap into yellow. And the breast milk and honey make it really soft. Sweet orange essential oil matches with this soap very well. I know it is going to be a gentle and sweet treat for my bath time.

After the trip from Quincy Ca., the beautiful color of autumn leaves inspires me to make this soap.
This is still a four fold breast milk soap. In order to create those nature colors, I pulled out my powders: cocoa powder, nettle leaf powder, red clay and calendula petal powder. I also added red palm oil to have bright orange color.

Try to clean up the breast milk that occupied in my half of freezer for a long time.
Before, I didn't like to make four fold milk soap. It takes time to dilute lye in low temperature. After I refer to an expert, I figured out that I should use spatula instead of stick! This finding helps me to speed it up. And maybe the air temperature is lower in Autumn, the soap was under low temperature to mix. It makes this soap light color. I really like it.

I always want to try red palm oil and yogurt soap. The bright color from red palm oil is my favorite. One day, a thought run into my mind: why not try breast milk yogurt? I hope it won't sound too weird.
Red palm oil is hard to find in soapmaking stores, so I bought from local organic grocery store. As it said, it is a "beyond organic" red palm oil!
Some dried yogurt starter was added in breast milk to make a yogurt. Due to yogurt, it was very fast ot trace.
This is probably the first time I used high portion of cocount oil. I also added avocado oil, cocoa butter and sesame oil to avoid dryness.
When I cut the soap, it gave me very surprisingly silky feeling. Oh, can't wait to wash it!
