This pair of handmade goat milk soaps is perfect for gift-giving, or just trying out different scents of my goat milk & lard soaps.  I will select 2 different scents from the options of Spiced Tobacco, Eucalyptus Mint, and Tangerine Vanilla. 

These soaps are made with my own hand-milked goat milk, local non-GMO, pastured lard from a friend's sustainable small farm that I render myself, and a little coconut oil and of course lye - that's it! (Check out our About Handmade Soap page for why there is lye in soap).  I love this soap, in fact I used to make this as a regular, non-goat milk old-fashioned lard soap (which are still available, I do love the classic recipe as well), but then made a batch for a custom order and loved it so much I decided to convert my lard soaps to goat milk-lard soaps.  It is really moisturizing, cleans well with no residue, and has a great lather!   

I handmake all my soap in small batches, 6 to 36 bars at a time.  If you have used a good handmade soap before, you know that it is a completely different creature than commercial soap, which can be so drying!  When soap is made by hand, the chemical reaction of oils with a lye solution forms the substances soap and glycerin.  A typical bar of handmade soap is roughly 1/3 glycerin!  This is a humectant, meaning it pulls water from the air - when on your skin, it literally moisturizes your skin by attracting water to it.  In commercial soaps, the glycerin is distilled and removed, and later sold back to you in a lotion, but in the "real thing", it is all one package.  I used to use lotions and moisturizers a lot, especially in the winter, but I virtually never use them anymore, other than some of my tallow body balm on my hands occasionally, and my lip balm or lip blush all year-round!
