Me kicking back in my favorite chair waiting to ring in the new year! Alas I had to be to work at 05:00 ( early)!!! So no late night parties for me.
Some new soaps will be ready in the beginning of February! These soaps still have goat milk but they also contain vegetables! What you can make soap with vegetables?!?! Yep! Sure can! And you get some vitamins and minerals for your skin! Also some new beer soaps featuring Joe’s home brew will be ready!
Merry Christmas! This time of year is so exciting! Rolling in the new year with some vegetable and goat milk soap. Vegetables are good to eat but they are also good for your skin. Joe made a milk stout and so a new round of beer soap will be rolling out in the new year.
Yellow soap is made with carrot purée and goats milk. Middle soap is made with Joe’s milk stout, and the pink soap is made with tomato juice and goats milk.
Also coming in the new year is an avocado, cucumber, and goats milk soap. I made all these soaps with good skin care in mind. These soaps will be amazing!
Did you survive Thanksgiving dinner? Did you over eat? I know I did! It was so hard not too with so much good food around! This picture of my grandson pretty much sums up the dinner portion of the evening! Now we are approaching my favorite holiday Christmas!
Lard or pig fat has gotten an awful reputation in the use of soap. Lard produces a nice creamy and stable lather. It can be found in almost any grocery store. It is not as controversial as palm oil. Lard also makes a mildly moisturizing bar of soap. Lard also makes a nice hard bar of soap. Lard is highly compatible with human skin cells. Our cell membranes are composed of saturated fats, just like the ones found in Lard. Lard is also affordable and sustainable.
It’s that time of year! Pumpkin spice, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin pie, pumpkin flavored lip balms ( see my store ) and Pumpkin patch! I will be out at the pumpkin patch every weekend this month. And I will also be a vendor at Cornish Christmas! I have a busy work schedule as well ( I work full time at our local hospital)! In the mean time my husband will be brewing some milk stout with smoked grains. Of coarse I will use some to make a special batch of soap. Stay tuned!
I made some green tea and rose water face cream. I had some leftover so I decided to make a shampoo base with it. I did some research on some of the benefits of using rose water on your hair. According to the great Google(haha) rose water replenishes lost moisture, helps to reduce dandruff, and increase scalp circulation to encourage hair growth. Well that sounds like I need to try! So onto soap making. I first went to my soap calculator and made a recipe. I used a tiny bit of coconut oil but not too much as I find it drying. Avocado, olive, lots of castor oil ( to help encourage hair growth) meadow foam seed, honey, and zinc oxide to tone down the pinkness of the rose water. Stay turned for results.
Happy Labor Day! Did you know today is my birthday? 45 years ago my poor mother was in labor on this day! LOL!
I hope you have a good weekend. We went to Dillion’s beach and had a nice three days of camping and fishing. We only caught one tiny fish that we had to release for being too small.
I’m working on new products like foot soak bombs. I am constantly making something.. stay tuned!
I like to infuse some of my oils with herbs. Calendula, chamomile, lavender, even cbd. I’m into helping my skin. I have some nerve damage from having type 1 diabetes. I have a minimal amount but when your feet feel like they are on fire.. well it’s awful! The cbd foot balm that I’ve been making seems to soothe this away and I don’t have to get a pill from the doctors! I love the healing properties of the above mentioned herbs. Infusing oil is time consuming but well worth the effort!
I did some custom baby shower soaps. I scented them with cucumber and green tea fragrance oil. The client wanted all white soaps so no color in these ones. All the other goodness like goats milk, coconut oil, palm oil, and olive oil. In the mean time my soaps and lip balm will hopefully go into a nice day spa here in town! Contact me if you want a quote for party favors.
One of my favorite songs. It is true. God bless America and the men and women who serve every day. I hope everyone is enjoying this holiday but I also hope you take a moment to thank our service people. I’ll be working my day job and then I’ll come home to bbq. How will you celebrate your fourth?
Hi! I'm Staci from Staci's Homemade Soap! I LOVE making soap and I love the way my skin feels. Unlike store bought soap, my soap does not dry the skin! A natural product of soap making is glycerin! And skin loves it! Also goats milk is good for your skin. Goats milk has minerals in it and is loaded with vitamins .Goats milk also contains lactic acid, which is an alpha hydroxy acid....Goats milk soap is wonderful. I encourage you to try some! My goats milk lotion is a soothing moisturizer for dry skin. Since goats milk has selenium and vitamin A in it your skin will be happy and nourished.
