Lather, Rinse, Repeat

PJ is a homeschooling mom of 8 who lives a simple life on several acres of land where they keep gardens and dairy goats. Each family member is involved in making goat's milk soap (Well, except the baby.) Everyone has a job to do from milking the herd of Alpine goats, to mixing ingredients, making the soap, cutting them into thick, chunky bars, and stacking them to cure. You can read about them HERE and HERE.

They sell thick (6 oz.!) bars of their soap in a ton of different fragrances like coconut (my favorite smell on earth!), black raspberry, clean cotton, Fiji Island (YUM!), lavender, oatmeal milk & honey, and many, many more! As PJ says, "when people come to visit us, I can't guarantee my house will be clean, but I know it will smell good!" I can imagine how yummy her house smells because my house smelled great just from one bar of soap!

They have a soap for everyone, including those who want an organic castile soap, unscented soaps, and even loofah soaps!

I'd never used any kind of goat's milk soap before and I was surprised at how much the bar lathered. I don't know why, but I didn't really think it would. It's also surprisingly moisturizing! My skin gets so dry in the winter, but I could tell a difference after using this soap for a week. It's really creamy. Check them out HERE!

PJ is giving away 1 bar of her homemade goat's milk soap (winner's choice) to 3 lucky winners (open to residents of U.S. and Canada). Leave me a comment here and I'll choose 3 winners on Friday, Feb. 27!

Also, between now and March 10, when you place an order, get a FREE bar of soap (your choice)! Just mention my blog in the special instructions section of the order form! How cool is that?

I saw something one time on "Dirty Jobs" involving goats and soap, among other dirty things. It was an interesting segment. This would be lovely to try, since my skin is drying out in this ever-changing weather. Plus if the kids knew it was goats milk soap they might not want to use it. Mine! alllll mine! LOL

I love goat soap. It was one of the reasons I wanted to raise my own goats. When I did the local farmer's market I use to barter with the soap lady. It was so much fun. I remember when I was invited to her home to see the process and was amazed by the wonderful smell as I walked into the door!

Take Care,
Debbie
