Oatmeal, Milk & Honey

Oatmeal, Milk & Honey

This handmade, hand stirred goat milk soap contains organic, gluten free oats, raw honey, shea butter and is scented with milk and honey fragrance. Key ingredients are goat milk, olive oil, coconut oil, apricot kernel oil, avocado oil, and shea butter.

The use of oats for skin care has been documented as far back as 2000 BC but I suspect it goes even farther back than that!  It is a remedy that has been passed down from mother to daughter or son and was known by most people long before the FDA formally recognized it.  The same can be said for honey, which has been found in the tombs of ancient Egyptians, still good and intact with a seal.  Honey lasts forever thanks to the chemical makeup of the bees that make it and the fact that it is naturally acidic.  Add to that goat milk - and wow, this is some soap!

Oatmeal, Milk and Honey goat milk soap has been my most popular soap since I started making soap!  It was not the first soap I made but it definitely will likely be the last one.  I like to grind my own oats to a finer consistency now, making the soap more gentle on the skin.  I used to add the oats without grinding them, but I find that they are heavy in the soap and if I pour it too soon, many of the oats will migrate to one end or the other.  By grinding them up a bit, the oats are lighter and stay well suspended in the soap.

I add a bunch of oatmeal to this particular soap!  I love oatmeal and the properties it brings to an extraordinary bar of soap.
