what I do is take a small can of pumpkin 15 oz and make one frozen bag of goat milk 15 oz short, and then whip up three batches of soap using two normal milk amounts and one of the shorted bags then add the pumpkin, its a triple batch of Horror! I have my hubby help pour this one. but in smaller theory take out a chunk of frozen milk about 2 T and add back 2 T of pumpkin.

Or take a can of solid packed pumpkin and smash it into ice cube trays, pop them out frozen into a zip lock...this way you can just add a few ice cubes defrosted to your pumpkin soap without making big batches or wasteing pumpkin.

I used to try to put alot of additives like this into my soap.....think of it more along the lines as 1% and it's exactly the same. Vicki

I just used 1 T of pumpkin ppo without measuring or subbing anything else. It really isn't any diff. than ading any other additives.

I'm gonna be making some pumpkin soap this evening.
I want to make sure I have this all clear though. We can just sub pumpkin for milk? Do we have to or can we just add some pumpkin, like we do honey?
I use 34 ounces of milk in my batches. We may actually need to make 2 or 3 batches but I can't do it all at once.
What is the best route? How much pumkpin can you put in place of milk before it starts to get yucky? lol
We are using one of my boss' pumpkins so she can then also sell the soap from her Farmer's Market stand as well.

Thanks!

I just add the pumpkin rather than substitute it for any milk. I only use about 7 tablespoons per MM batch (7 pounds butters/oils).
