Using your own breast milk, I can craft a custom order of bar soaps for your little one (or anyone in the family!). This listing will buy you an entire loaf of soap using your breast milk, which makes 10 bars.

These soaps are cold processed and made with your breast milk, Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, and Castor Oil for a gentle, conditioning soap. You also have the option to add colloidal oatmeal and/or honey for added skin benefits.

Ingredients

Breast milk can be extremely beneficial for your little one’s (or anyone’s!) skin, especially those babies prone to eczema, baby acne, and other skin conditions. Breast milk contains palmitic acid, which is a fatty acid that acts as a natural moisturizer. It also contains oleic acid, which heals dry skin. Vaccenic acid within breast milk protects and nourishes the skin, and linoleic acid lightens spots and minimizes inflammation (https://www.elvie.com/en-us/blog/breast-milk-baths-what-you-need-to-know).

Finely ground oatmeal within this bar of soap also adds some extra properties for your baby’s sensitive skin. It is a natural moisturizer, fights inflammation, gently cleanses, and can help relieve itching.

Honey is a natural antibacterial and antiseptic, again benefiting those with acne or inflammatory skin problems. Honey also acts as a natural humectant, which keeps skin moist but not oily.

Ingredients: Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Breast Milk, Sodium Hydroxide, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Sodium Lactate, Honey, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Flour

Details

Once you place this order, I will contact you regarding receipt of the breast milk you would like to use in the soap loaf. I will need about 8oz of breast milk for the recipe, which you will need to ship to me (see below). Once I receive your breast milk, I will keep you updated on the process and let you know when your soap has been made. It then takes 5 weeks to cure before you can use the soap, so please plan accordingly. Once your soap is cured, I will ship your bars to you.

Please indicate in your checkout order if you would like oats or honey added to your bar soaps.

Since these are handmade, there may be variations in texture, appearance, and color compared to what is shown. The pictures only show an example.

How should I ship the breast milk to you?

  • It would be best for your milk to be frozen for shipment. (I will also be freezing your milk before making the soap, so this helps with that extra step as well). This will help preserve the quality of the milk and also prevent leakage during shipment.
  • Please include an ice pack or another bag of frozen water as well as insulation for best results, especially during warmer months of the year.
  • Make sure to abide by your shipping carrier's rules regarding shipping liquids/perishable items. You are responsible for abiding by shipping laws.
  • I need about 8 fl oz of breast milk for this recipe, a little less is fine if there is some leakage or you cannot spare that much.
  • I recommend shipping via the fastest method, such as USPS Priority Mail, or UPS Ground. To save money on shipping costs, you can use free shipping websites such as Pirate Ship or Shippo to get discounted costs compared to over-the-counter prices.
  • Ship to me at: Hemsworth Homestead, 2102 Burlington Road, Oskaloosa, IA 52577
  • Please email me at info@hemsworthhomestead.com when you ship your milk so that I can watch for the mail and bring the milk inside right away (especially during the warmer months).

Great for Eczema

I loved that I was able to use the natural healing in breastmilk for eczema on my babies. Knowing they were getting washed with clean ingredients, plus the breastmilk helped with the eczema gave me a piece of mind.
