This soap in the shape of an adorable goat curled up sleeping is a great gift for almost anyone.  Kids just love it, and with 6 fragrances available, you can find the perfect one for that hard-to-shop-for friend or relative.  

I make this soap in 6 fragrances - Lavender-Vanilla, Sandalwood Vanilla, Honeysuckle, Oatmeal, Milk & Honey, Ginger Lime & Lavender, and Cedarwood & Sage. The Lavender-Vanilla has lavender flowers through the soap and a deep purple-brown color from the vanilla, the Sandalwood Vanilla is also tinted a warm caramel-brown from the natural effect of the vanilla, and the Oatmeal, Milk & Honey has ground oatmeal, our own Solace Farm honey, and of course our goat milk in it as well.  The Cedarwood & Sage and the Ginger, Lime & Lavender are both scented with 100% essential oils, while the other 4 scents are made using fragrance oils.  These bars are approximately 4 oz and come packaged in a lidded, windowed one-piece kraft paper box - they make a great gift for almost any occasion. 

Goat milk is renowned for the luxurious qualities it gives soap, particularly gentle exfoliating and excellent moisturizing. I hand-milk my goats Sophia, 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 wonderful soap. I don't use Palm oil as many soapmakers do - while it itself is a useful oil, I can't condone the harmful cultivation practices used to produce it, and find I don't need it - this soap is wonderful without it!  It is so moisturizing and good for your skin, with extra vitamins and nutrients from the goat milk, as well as the luxurious oils I use.  If you have used goat milk soap before, or any good handmade soap, 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 grass-fed tallow balm on my hands occasionally.
