Why do we make soaps and lotions?

Well, we had a very busy day bottling lotions and liquid soaps for two large orders. It is so wonderful that so many people are enjoying our soaps and lotions! I know I love them and use them every day so I can just imagine that many feel the same way. I like using clean soaps with no yucky stuff in it and lotions that have ingredients that are familiar and have nothing to do with brake fluid or anti freeze. My daughter told me years ago to watch out for any product that listed propylene glycol as one of the ingredients. It is a toxic chemical which is in many health and beauty products and food as well. It is also used in antifreeze and brake fluid. So, when I had trouble finding products without propylene glycol in them I decided that I would have to begin making my own. So, here I am just selling the goodies that I make for me and my family so that we don’t have to use toxic chemicals on our skin.
Well, that is just a bit of the history of our soapmaking adventure….. I hope you take a moment and check the ingredients on your beauty products and food items and make sure you can pronounce and identify the items in them. You will be glad you did. ๐Ÿ™‚

New opportunities!

Wow! What a crazy couple of days we have had here! We got an order for a whole new line of Castile soaps using only essential oils as the scents so I started making it yesterday and just now finished bottling it up to be delivered tomorrow. The new Castiles are Cedar Wood, Fir Needle, Lemon Drop (Lemon and Lemon Grass essential oils), Meadow Woods (Cedar wood, Fir, Pine, and Peppermint essential oils), Peppermint, Pine, and Tea Tree. They all smell great and they came out so nice and clear! I love making Castile soap!
It was quite warm today so making the soaps was a bit taxing. The goats don’t really mind the heat too much now that they are up in the woods. It is so strange, once you start up the trail into the woods it seems like it is at least 10 degrees cooler. I love it and the girls do too! They have also discovered that they love the apple horse treats that we get at the farm store! Oh my gosh! They go totally crazy for them and chase me all over the property to get them from me. Bella almost plowed me over trying to get them out of my pocket! I was laughing so hard I could hardly stand up! Good times with our wonderful goaties ๐Ÿ™‚
Well till next time, happy farming to you all ๐Ÿ™‚
