Goats Milk brings fantastic nourishing properties for your skin. It is soothing for sensitive skin and contains vitamins A, C and Calcium. Calcium is directly absorbed into the skin and is important for maintain the moisture content of individual skin cells. Research from the National Cancer Research Institute has found that higher skin calcium can be attributed to those with less premature skin aging and lower cancer incidence.
My goats milk is sourced from a small, organic Sustainable Agriculture Project on Garden Farm at High Leas, Matlock, Derbyshire You can source their meat online via Muddy Carrot and they operate an adopt a lamb/piglet scheme. They welcome interest in their farm you can contact them directly here.
Chocolate, Orange, Honey and Oatmeal
I like to source my honey as locally and as sustainably as possible. The current batch I am using is from Nottingham Park.
Goat’s Milk, Honey and Lavender
Lavender is soothing for the body and mind. This soap is made with lavender that I have freshly harvested, Nottingham Park honey and Garden Farm Goat’s Milk.
Other Goat’s Milk Soap Varieties available to order:
Goat’s Milk and Nettle – particularly good for those suffering from eczema and psorisis.
Goat’s Milk and Christmas Cinnamon Spice – this festive variety has a gently warming scent.
Goat’s Milk and Peppermint – this soap uses freshly foraged and dried peppermint along with peppermint essential oils
All soaps can be made to order: orders take approximately 6 weeks to process to allow the soap to cure. I can add additional properties eg. oatmeal for gentle exfoliation depending on your requirements.
Where to buy: Direct for me, or alternatively I have recently begun making soap for Stonebridge City Farm in Nottingham. You can purchase soap there. See their website for opening times.
