Breastmilk Soap? Recipe Here!

Updated: Mar 6, 2023

Skin problems…put some breastmilk on it!

It’s natural, pure and unscented.

I had a client this morning who didn’t want to throw that precious liquid gold that was just outside the window of the thawed previously frozen 24 hour milk storage safety guidelines. She asked if she could use it for the bath and I said of course! Then I shared this recipe with her and now I’m sharing it with you.
