Original Handmade Goat Milk Soaps
The Thankful Goat. It all started with a mistake. We had just gotten Athena when she ate some laurel leaves (toxic to goats) and we had to give her an anti-toxin shot rendering her milk undrinkable. So a friend told me to make soap, and that's where it all began. I made my first batch in the Fall of 2009 and haven't looked back. I enjoy creating all the wonderful fragrances. Each bar is made with saponified oils, goat milk, oatmeal, honey, and glycerin. There are over 50 nutrients in goat milk soap and the pH perfectly matches our skin so it doesn't dry you out like commercial soaps. Oh and those soaps on the shelves, they also extract all the glycerin that is naturally produced when soap is made and sell it to industry. Not only do I leave it in, I add more on top of it! Each bar is 4 oz. and has been cured for at least two weeks to complete the hardening process. Availability is dependent on what I have in stock. After making the soaps, they have to cure for two weeks. Every now and then I sell out of a specific fragrance and it is a few weeks until I can have more to sell.
Price: $5 each or 4 for $18
