Many years ago I began purchasing goat’s milk soap base to make my own soap. I would add herbs and flowers from our garden as well as essential oils to the soap base making my own bars of custom soaps. It has been a long time since I made my last bar of soap. About two weeks ago, I came across an adorable sheep soap mold online that I couldn’t resist! After a little further research, I came across a goat farm in Maine ( http://pudledukfamilyfarm.blogspot.com/ ) that uses their own goat’s milk to make a quality, natural goat’s milk soap base for rebatching. That’s all it took to get me started again.
In the past two weeks, I have made and sold about 30 bars of soap. It has been great to get out my essential oils, dried herbs from the garden, and my soap recipe book. I love the soap base from Pudleduk Family Farm. The soap has a rich, creamy, lather. This weekend, I took my sheep soaps to a church bizarre. Within the first two hours, I sold out of soap and then began taking orders. The little sheep was a hit! I took several different kinds of goat’s milk soap: Rosemary/Lavendar, Lanolin and Lavendar, Peppermint, Oats and Honey, Chamomile, and Jasmine and Lanolin.
