Homemade Soaps

Our first batch of Honey Almond Oatmeal Goat's Milk and the other is Cucumber Melon Goat's Milk. All made with natural ingredients. No harsh chemicals like store bought soaps. These soaps are very gentle on skin and are moisturizing. They leave your skin feeling soft, clean, and smooth.

New Supplies for Homemade Products

Hi everyone! I have received a new batch of supplies for making my soaps and salves. I am also going to try my hand at lip balms this time as well.

I had to purchase a new scale along with beeswax, melt and pour soap, essential oils, Castile soap, Shea Butter and Vitamin E Capsules.

I also bought some new amber colored jars and lip balm tubes. I will get started and update soon with photos of how things turned out! 
Happy New Year to you All!
