Got Your Goat

I had to share another great product that I purchased at Hollydays in December. Goat Milk Stuff is a family-owned and operated business that makes soap from goats’ milk. I purchased the Oatmeal Milk & Honey soap bar and absolutely love it. I’ve been using the soap in our downstairs half-bath, but after reading a testimonial from a grandmother on their website, I’m going to try using it on my son during bath time. According to this grandmother, the soap greatly helped her grandson’s eczema. My poor Little Man suffers from eczema – it’s really bad on his arms and legs. We’ve used a variety of medicated creams and special soaps, but if something that’s all-natural works really well, then I’m definitely going to try that option.

At their Hollydays booth, Goat Milk Stuff also gave away small samples of the Ocean soap. It has a great scent as well and my kids love washing with the “mini” soap, although it’s about disappeared at this point. There are several varieties available, including organic soap, travel bars and luffa soap.

Goat Milk Stuff is the creation of PJ Jonas and her family. They are a family of ten – that’s right, eight kids – so order some soap from these folks. They have lots of mouths to feed! PJ also has a blog, so you can learn about the business, their family and their herd of goats that are the source of Goat Milk Stuff.

P.S. - Many of us in blogger land have written about Haiti, extending much-needed prayers and encouraging donations. If you're looking for a great resource for information on the relief effort in Haiti and what organizations are taking donations, visit USAID. I personally donated to UNICEF, because 100 percent of my donation goes to Haiti, rather than a portion going to administrative fees (Do your homework - not all dollars go toward the aid effort, depending on the organization). God bless the earthquake victims and please give strength to those who going there to help them.

I bought some of their soap online. Their website said they were out of what I wanted and I emailed her to see when they would be getting it back in stock. She said that she had a few and sent me what I wanted that day. GREAT customer service. The soaps are awesome too!!! And like you, I love that they are all natural!

Yes, it's so important we all help in some way. It's just so tragic and will be for years to come.

Thank you for the post on the goats milk. My little guy suffers from eczema also, inside the elbows, and his legs. Sometimes, it's just awful! I've tried so many creams and occasionally when prescribed, the steroid creams. But I will check this site out.

I actully use unscented goat soap. I really like it and I do think that it is keeping my skin from drying out during the winter.

The soap sounds wonderful for problems skin. Thanks for sharing the information. The little goats are adorable!

Thanks for your mention of Haiti. The situation is especially touching for my church. We have a family with four children there...all under 17 years old. They have been found, but have no food, water, shelter, etc.

I have always loved Crabtree and Evelyn's Goatmilk soap. But natural sounds even better! Will take a look.

We sent to World Vision... I feel that is a good institution as well. Thanks for your suggestion for those who may not know how to give.
