East Lothian Goat’s Milk

I have now sourced some wonderful goat milk from the Scottish Borders as my new local source for making the goat’s milk soap. Many thanks to be extended to Anke for her help. The goats she keeps are Golden Guernsey’s which are members of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust in the UK and also British Toggenburgs. I look forward to making my next batches with their fantastic milk.

Rapeseed Oil

Exciting news! I am pleased to announce that I have begun to source my rapeseed oil from the heart of East Lothian, just round the corner from me so keeping it nice and local.

The rapeseed oil is cold pressed locally to the farm and grown from their own seed source which is GM-free. Cold pressed oil means that unlike most commercial and cheap rapeseed oil you can buy in the supermarket it has not been treated with chemicals to assist the extraction process. Cold pressed means less energy intensive and preserves the natural colour and nutrients for the oil. I am looking forward to the quality of oil being reflected in my soaps.

Over the next few months, now that I am based in Scotland I will be re-assessing my sources of oil to ensure they are as environmentally friendly and as local as possible.

Looking for Goats Milk near Edinburgh?

Well folks. I have finally arrived in Edinburgh to pursue my Veterinary degree and I am slowly in my little spare time finding the farm connections that get me excited. So. I am thinking about soap in September for the Christmas run. Normally the word Christmas in September would make me shudder but making soap is a slow business and i need to be prepared since all my soaps will be curing for at least 6 weeks.

Did I mention also that money is pretty scarce as a student and Edinburgh is not the cheapest of cities albeit beautiful to live in.

So this brings me to my next question. Where am I going to be sourcing my goat’s milk in Edinburgh? I have explored a couple of ideas but as yet I am to find goats nearby. What this space!
