Mountain Goddess

Happy Summer! We've been busy in the Green Springs with the markets, gardening, and making new amazing products.  My latest soap is called Mountain Goddess in honor of the Cascade Siskiyou Mountains we live in and the Green Springs Community that is near and dear to our hearts.  

Mountain Goddess contains 100 % goat's milk, lovingly supplied by my daughter Brett who raises gentle Nubian Goats.  Nubian's milk has a high fat content which makes fabulous soap.  I used Aussie Beige Clay for color and skin soothing properties.  Scented with a combination of eucalyptus blue mallee, Peru Balsam, Pettigrain, clary sage and gingergrass essential oils it reminds me of the fresh mountain air, hence the name Mountain Goddess.  It needs to cure for a few more weeks so check back here or on Etsy in a few weeks.  This soap is sure to sell fast so don't miss out! 

I've also made a healing balm for cracked heals and cuticles.  I've named it Neem Crack Cream.  It works great!  I'm off to create a new Shaving Soap!
