I have been experimenting with different soaps lately. I like to find soaps that make my skin feel good with lovely scents. A great soap I found is Goat Milk Stuff.
Goat Milk Stuff is a family owned and operated company. Each aspect of the soap making process, including raising and milking the goats to making the soaps, to packaging is a ten member family enterprise. Even the little ones get involved by slipping the soaps into the individual bags. The Jonas family each takes part in doing what it takes for Goat Milk Stuff. I adore the video filmed by a local news team all about the Jonas Family. Check it out here. It is very interesting and the children are darling.
The soaps are incredible. The selection of scents is enticing. They have over 30 scents. Each bar is hand made from start to finish. The raw goats milk makes the soaps creamy. Each scent is made in batches then hand cut to cure for a minimum of 6 weeks.
Here is a list of some of the amazing scents:
Cool Citrus Basil
and many more!
Not only does the soap come in lovely scents, the colors match the scent! You can order the bars in 3 different sizes too. The Full bar is a 5 to 6 oz bar and comes in a cotton bag. The half bar - 2 to 3 oz unwrapped, and the travel size bar - .6 to .9 oz unwrapped. The hard part is choosing the scent you would like.
I chose two scents I knew I had to try. The first being Chardonnay: The sweet smell of chardonnay is a light, fruity bouquet with just a hint of alcohol scent to really brighten it up. I love the refreshing smell of the Chardonnay soap. It is light and not overpowering. The color is a rich cream color. I love the way the soap feels on my skin. It lathers nicely and left my skin feeling soft without a sticky residue. My second scent is the Fiji Island: This green and yellow swirled bar carries the scents of coconuts, limes, and lemon verbena. This scent is very tropical. You can smell the lemon overtones. It is an uplifting, energizing scent. Perfect for those sleepy eye mornings. I love it!
Besides the bar soaps, Goat Milk Stuff makes other types of soaps. Essential Oil soaps, limited edition soaps, specialty soaps and unscented soaps too. You can also find Gift Packs. Other Stuff is also available. Bath accessories, bath bombs, laundry soap, lip balms and more. The washcloths are hand knitted by the children! Everyone say Awww!
