I am all about breast feeding. I think it is a wonderful choice. I breast fed both of my kids and I would do it all over again if life repeated itself, but I feel as this is somehow crossing some unsaid line that makes me have that scrunched up grimace on my face every time I think about using breast milk for anything but feeding babies. I guess it makes sense. Milk is milk and if you can use goat's milk, what is so different? It's different to me. If you make breast milk soap and want to send it to me, I don't want it, thank you.
OK, so for anyone who is into this which might end up being a trend in the Le Leche League after this post, here is the recipe from Storknet.
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup lye (NaOH)
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
1/2 cup cocoa butter
1 cup breast milk
This recipe will give you 24 oz (if you used muffin the you'll get 12 soaps.)So there you have it. Breast Milk soap. I bet there is wonderful conditioning properties and is really like any other bar of soap. Oh, I don't know. What do you think (and please keep in mind that we do not want to bash anyone).
While I was looking around to find an interesting breast milk photo, I found that there is human breast milk cheese and soup out there! No joke.
