Description: I have been making all natural, mostly organic goat milk soap for 20 years. I use local goat milk (we no longer have our goats) when possible. I use local honey always. The milk is extremely gentle, foams great and lasts a long time. The types I make are Lavender, Honey-Oatmeal and Peppermint. I just started making products for my newest grandchild. I started with infusing olive oil with calendula for several months. I use that olive oil in the soap and have added a new variety - Calendula. I'm also making a diaper cream called Vivian's Bum Butter. It's not only good for the diaper area, but all over for baby's skin. Works great for the rest of the family too. I have started making skin care lotions. I'm experimenting with them on family first and so far, results are excellent.
