Autumn Spice Goat Milk Handmade Natural Soap
5.5 oz bar soap. Buy four or a dozen and save 10%.
A creamy, spicy goat milk soap colored to remember the first falling leaves on a sunny Autumn day.
That's Perci on the label. She didn't want to use her name for the soap but was happy to pose for the label! Fall is her favorite season: nothing like cavorting in a swirling leaf pile, am I right?
I must have been thinking about gingerbread and pumpkin cake when I created this soap because it has all the same ingredients as my baking has! Of course, it also makes me want to have a hot toddy snuggling in front of the wood stove... And, heck, I've been using these spicy flavors at supper time, too, when I do my New England white-girl twist on "exotic" dishes!
Originally this was going to be a seasonal soap, but it is too popular to limit it to Autumn! There are clearly lots of times to love spicy!
What's special about goat milk (besides Perci), you ask?
Goat milk is tricky to use in soap making but is worth practicing the skill of using it. The soap it creates has a thick, creamy lather and is super gentle on your skin.!
Not only does it leave your skin feeling hydrated and soft, it cleans your skin gently without stripping important natural oils in your skin. Centuries-old skincare recipes included milk baths, after all.
Soaping up in the shower with Perci's Autumn Spice soap surrounds me simultaneously with its energetically spicy scents and memories of good meals, great desserts and people I love to be around.
