Goat Soap and It's Benefits

The other day, I was reflecting on a time in my life about twenty-five + years ago when I raised a few dairy goats on a little "farm" in North Texas. And, now that the dream of having a small herd is a reality I spend a bit of spare time reading everything I can about goats including Brad Kessler's book - Goat Song (really recommend this fluid read) and blogs like Mary's at Annie's Goat Hill

One of the things that I have enjoyed about Marry and her blog is her small goat soap adventure where she makes and sells goat soap and lotion.  I've purchased quite a bit and everyone I've given the gifts to has thoroughly enjoyed the product.  In time, I intend to try my hand at this craft...but until then, Mary's my source and btw, she sends out your order immediately. 

I'd sent my mother some soap from my Annie's Goat Hill stash and I'm hearing that she loves it.  Now, my dad just hinted that since it's Father's Day coming up, he'd like a supply of his own. So, guess what? I'm order some to be shipped to dear dad for Father's Day. 

On a side note about the benefits of goat soap and lotion:
Did you know that goat milk is the only milk that contains capric-capryllic triglyceride, which helps moisturize the skin and contributes to the softness of the soap? And, did yo know that goat milk contains over 50 nutrients, minerals, acids and enzymes that serve to nourish and revitalize dehydrated skin? No joke - it does!

According to my new goat magazine "people have been using goat milk for centuries to improve skin and enhance beauty. The ancient Egyptians considered a milk bath the ultimate in luxurious living and Cleopatra regularly bathed in pure milk. Modern science has discovered that goat milk soap has a pH similar to that of human skin and regular use of goat milk soap will maintain a moisture balance that results in smoother, softer skin."

  1. Lylah, goat milk is amazing. I am raising an orphaned kitten on it right now. BTW...I do believe in excellent customer service. I do not wish to leave anyone wondering. Have a beautiful day!


Thanks for visiting my French home and garden. I'm always delighted when my friends leave a comment. xoxo Lylah
