For all of you that have requested my oatmeal and honey soap without the strawberry seeds, it has been done.  This soap smells so good that you might want to eat it.  Both honey and oatmeal are wonderful ingredients for your skin, so that makes this is a great face soap.  It will take a couple of weeks for it to cure, but you can pre-order now.  If you prefer the exfoliating version, it is under the specialty soap page on my website.TLP Pig Link

Today I am working on products for the Pike Road Craft Show coming up in November. I have unscented soap ready to slice and I am currently making Magnolia lotion. I am out of both at the market. I hope I can get the Magnolia Soap made today also. I’ll keep you posted on progress.

Calming a Fussy Baby

baby-bathBabies are fussy for a variety of reasons. Sometimes they’re hungry, or they need a diaper change, or maybe they’re over tired. When my baby is fussy for no apparent reason I like to give her a calming bath. Now babies are notorious for putting their hands, feet, and anything within their grasp into their mouths, so I’m vigilant about the type of bath products I expose my baby to.

I like to add an all natural mixture of goat’s milk and cornstarch to a warm bath. The warm water is calming while the milk and cornstarch mixture soothes and nourishes my baby’s skin. In fact, the mixture works so well that I’ve taken to using handmade goat milk soap during my own showers. The creamy, rich complex feels wonderful against my skin and the lavender scent of my favorite goat milk soap brand is just heavenly.

Soothing Eczema

If you suffer from chronic eczema chances are you’ve spent a lot of money on lotions, soaps, and shampoos which all claim to cure dry skin. Most of the time those products have many ingredients that are harmful to your skin, in addition to being harmful to your finances. Thankfully, there are organic alternatives that are much less expensive than the over-the-counter medicated soaps and shampoos you’ve been using. Goat milk soap is one such example.

Goat’s milk has several healthful properties such as alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA). AHA is a skin exfoliate that removes dead skin cells, allowing new skin cells to come through. Goat milk soap utilizes glycerin in its production. Glycerin is a humectant, meaning it helps your skin retain moisture. Moisturizing, of course, being the most important measure an eczema sufferer should complete every day. Stop wasting your money on products that don’t work and make the switch to goat milk soap for dry skin relief!

Goat’s Milk in Cosmetics

tn_omh_soapAlthough most of the mainstream cosmetic products on the market today are perfectly safe, some of them contain harsh chemicals that can do more harm than good. Some soaps and moisturizing creams harbor so many ingredients that it’s difficult to determine their intended effects. That’s why so often it pays to keep things simple. All-natural cosmetics take all of the guesswork out of soap shopping.

Handmade goat milk soap is all-natural and loaded with beneficial antioxidants such as vitamin A and vitamin E. Goat milk soap also possesses age-defying properties thanks to its amino acid content. These amino acids can be utilized to revitalize damaged tissue and make you look significantly younger in time.

The Many Benefits of Goat Products

goatmilksoappic-thelavenderpigSoaps containing milk have recently been rediscovered by the beauty industry. The resurgence of milk soap in the market place can be attributed to recent research showing the skin benefits from contact with lactic acid. Lactic acid helps smooth skin through exfoliation, and milk also contains vitamins A and D. These vitamins give skin smoothness and suppleness. Much milk-based soap is created from goat’s milk. Goat milk soap has the same ph as human skin.

Goats’ milk is high in fat and creamy. People who have trouble digesting cow’s milk often choose to ingest goats’ milk as an alternative. The protein profile of goats’ milk is more similar to human milk than cows’ milk. Another benefit to using goats’ milk products is that goats are more easily farmed than cows; they forage on all kinds of feed, are resistant to disease and can provide meat, milk and wool.
