Herb & Soap Handcrafted Michigan Goat Milk Soaps



I've begun a new venture! I am now producing my own goat milk soaps. I've listed all over but Etsy is my main site. 
https://www.etsy.com/shop/HerbandSoap 

I put a ton of love into every batch. I make many more scents which are all listed in my Etsy. More soaps becoming available as they finish curing. I use herbs and flowers from my own backyard garden and local Michigan goat milk.


Lavender colored with ground lavender and alkanet

Each handcrafted bar weighs approximately 3 oz and some I do offer a 4.5-5 oz size as well. Due to the nature of hand cutting and curing (where the moisture is evaporating out to make a harder bar) the size and color may vary slightly.


Made with fresh raw goat milk from a local farm in my home state of Michigan. I make small batches to ensure the finest quality. 


Roman Chamomile

I use lye to saponify olive oil, coconut oil, castor oil, shea butter, vitamin E oil, palm oil (which I will be discontinuing use of as it is not sustainable), and lard with my full cream raw goat milk, no water added. My personal recipe produces a rich bubbly lather.

My soaps do not contain paraben, alcohol, petroleum, preservatives, or EDTA that are commonly found in commercially made soap.

I do not wrap my bars in plastic, each bar comes with a paper band and nestled inside a paper bag that can all be recycled or composted.

My soaps may have soda ash and I leave it on because I believe that it adds to the rustic charm. What is soda ash? Soda ash forms when unsaponified lye reacts with naturally occurring carbon dioxide in the air. Soda ash is a harmless, and it's most common on the surface of cold process soaps.


*Care: Prolong the life of your soap by keeping it out of standing water and letting it dry between uses. I recommend a good soap dish or rack.

**Shipping: I will combine multiple items and refund any extra shipping charges once I mail your package.

SEA LIFE Michigan Aquarium and LEGOLAND Discovery Center Michigan

This post is not sponsored. I was sent tickets to SEA LIFE Michigan Aquarium and LEGOLAND Discovery Center Michigan for my family as a gift in order to help facilitate this post. Be sure and enter the giveaway at the bottom of this post!



Michigan is a place so full of things to do it can almost be overwhelming. From beaches in Ludington and Traverse City to a ballgame in Comerica Park, or fishing on the Grand River. This spring we found another destination which is perfect for kids of all ages and gives you a glimpse into a world you don’t often get to see. SEA LIFE Michigan Aquarium takes you on a journey from the rivers and inland lakes of Michigan to the Great Lakes and then the Ocean. LEGOLAND Discovery Center Michigan is also a fun and very interactive place for the whole family. All tucked away in Great Lakes Crossings Mall in Auburn Hills, Michigan.

With a dozen interactive exhibits, you will feel so close to world under the water you will be surprised you aren’t wet. Unless you decide to stop at the Interactive Touch Pool where you will actually get wet petting sea stars, slipper lobsters, sea urchins and more. You'll find yourself surrounded by a school of hundreds of fish in the Shoaling Ring and be in awe of their graceful movement all around you.


I was floored in the Stingray Bay exhibit and not only by the beautiful stingrays. An eel so green and large it seemed so unreal that it caught me completely by surprise. It was great to hear the well trained staff teach all those who desire to know more about these amazing worlds and ecosystems. We were entranced by the dancing glow from the jellyfish in the Jellies Exhibit as the colors changed. I could have sat there for hours.

Few things matched sheer volume of color as we saw in the Coral Reef exhibit. The beautiful array made you feel as if you were snorkeling off the coast of Australia. But the exhibit for us that was the most jaw dropping and incredibly immersing were the tunnels through the tropical ocean. Being surrounded by the beauty and color of an entire ecosystem as everything from giant sea turtles to hammerhead sharks swim overhead. It is truly a moment the word Awesome was created for.

All in all, SEA LIFE Michigan Aquarium is an incredible place to learn more about a world that is as entertaining as it is beautiful. And when you stop take some time at Conservation Cove to learn ways that you help protect the oceans and waterways and all the amazing creatures you saw on your adventure. We will certainly be back again to discover and explore the wonders of this aquarium.

Oh and hey! Good luck finding the octopus! Visit Sea Life Michigan Aquarium here: https://www.visitsealife.com/michigan/
