Only 7 left in stock

$6.00

Created in-house here at Solace Farm Homestead, this essential oil blend of warm cinnamon leaf, earthy ginger, bright blood orange, and spicy anise smells like warm cider, or mulled wine, a perfect fall & winter scent.  The 4 oz bar comes in either a simple square bar, hand-wrapped in brown paper, or a rectangular bar decorated with acorns and an oak leaf, or embossed with a graceful angel, both packaged in a windowed brown kraft paper box.  You can select which you would like at check-out. With its beautiful design and distinct scent, it would make a great gift for any occasion (but especially Christmas or other winter holidays), and is a wonderfully moisturizing option for daily use.

Goat milk is renowned for the luxurious qualities it gives soap, providing exfoliation and hydration. I hand-milk my goats Gretchen, Snowpea, and Elvira, and use the rich milk as well as olive and coconut oils, almond, castor, and avocado oils and shea butter to make this soap. If you have used goat milk soap before, or any good handmade soap, you realize how different it is from 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 need them anymore, other than some of my grass-fed tallow balm on my hands occasionally (especially in the winter!).
