It leaves your skin soft and smooth and many people much prefer the solid lotion once they've made the switch. Read More

Activated bamboo charcoal is said to be capable of drawing dirt and bacteria out of our skin and absorbing it through the charcoal pores. This may help deter acne or other skin conditions. The uneven surface of charcoal may also have the ability to absorb dead skin cells, thereby exfoliating the skin and helping to keep it clean and smooth.

Tea Tree oil comes from a plant called Melaleuca alternifolia which is native to Australia, but has been transplanted across the world because of its useful and versatile traits. It is typically described as either a small tree or a tall shrub (averaging between 20-35 feet high) that grows in swampy areas and around streams. Most of its thin, pointy leaves grow towards its top, along with a few yellow or white flowers. Read More

Everyone loves the smell of cherries in their Read More
goat milk soaps and
lotions, but bitter almond essential oil (which naturally smells like cherries) can only be used with extreme caution. For safety's sake, we avoid using straight bitter almond essential oil. Instead we use a bitter almond blend to scent almond goat milk soaps and lotions.

The reason we can add milk to goat milk soap without it going bad is because soap goes through a chemical reaction called saponification. This reaction takes the inputs and produces soap and glycerin as the outputs. The properties of the milk are in the soap, but it's no longer milk, so it doesn't spoil or grow bacteria. Unfortunately, lip balms and lotions do not undergo this same reaction.

Jewelweed is a plant that is often used by herbalists to relieve poison ivy symptoms. We wildharvest fresh jewelweed and infuse it in oils and then use those to make a jewelweed soap and jewelweed salve.

I'm regularly asked if our goat milk soap will be better for someone's skin than the soap they are currently using. I'm a bit biased, but my answer is usually a laughing, "Of course!" I then qualify it to say that everyone's skin is different and I can't predict how their skin will react to our goat milk soap. But I do know that many other soaps and detergents are filled with chemicals that we avoid.

One question I am regularly asked is, "How strongly are your soaps scented?" This is such a difficult question to answer because everyone's sense of smell is unique. I can give the exact same bar of soap to 3 different people. One person will say it smells too strong, one person will say it smells just right, and one person will say it barely smells at all.

Lemongrass essential oil can have one of two distinct aromas. It can be lemon/citrusy or rosy, depending on the type of lemongrass it is extracted from. Both of the scents are refreshing and relaxing and tend to rejuvenate the senses. This scent is a great mood lifter and helps bring on a "happy" state of mind. The lemongrass used by Goat Milk Stuff has a strong lemon/citrus scent. Read More
