Give-Away Day!

A couple weeks ago, I discovered this great idea on the Sew, Mama, Sew! blog. Today, all over the Blogosphere, people are giving away something to their readers. I love giving things to people, so I immediately decided to participate. I've thought a lot about what to offer . . . wool roving, but not everyone spins; yarn, but not everyone knits or crochets; food provides shipping challenges. But everyone uses soap, right? So, I'm giving away three bars of my goat milk soap, your choice of fragrance (or not). Retail value, including shipping is about $20, and yes, I am willing to ship internationally. You can learn more about my soap here.

So, if you'd like to be considered, post a comment here between today and midnight central time May 31, and on June 1, I'll pick the winner. How will I pick the winner? Just tell me why you'd like to try my goat milk soap, and I'll pick the most interesting comment. In the case of a tie, the winner will be randomly chosen by one of my goats.

Oh that is a good idea and darn I wish I could think of something witty to say why I want to try your soap, I just think it would be interesting. I've never even seen goat milk soap before. Os there an 'It's your bleating bath time' flavor to use on the kids? :)

Lisa French wafrench@bellsouth.net said...

How wonderful! I'd love to try the soap for a few. I've never tried it, and I have heard it's wonderful for your skin. I dream of having goats and making soap one day! But mainly, it goes back to what I was telling my kids yesterday. We were designed to care for the creatures and their environment, and they are designed to ultimately care for us through their work, production, and companionship. I love that bond, and it's so wonderful to experience it firsthand!

Mom L said...

Oh, wow - you're giving away some of your soap? Ever since my dermatologist told me to steer clear of ordinary soaps, I've wondered how the goat milk soap would feel. I've never tried it! Since I have serious goat envy from watching the kids (and lambs) on my favorite blogs, I think some goat soap would go a long way toward making me feel like I have a little goat in the bath with me!!!

My townhouse association doesn't allow goats, so goat milk soap is as close as I can get to experiencing the deeply interdependent relationship, known since the days of antiquity, between humans and livestock.

Btw, my association rules also specifically ban chickens, emus, bald eagles, and Clydesdale horses. Life in the city is so limiting.

Nancy K. said...

This is a great idea! I'll have to think of something that I can give away. Maybe a SHEEP?! ;-)

I would LOVE to try your soap! I already know that I love goat milk soap and it would be fun to try some made by a cyber friend! I've been searching on the Internet for cinnamon-clove or orange-clove scented goat milk soap. Do you do custom orders???

Michelle at Boulderneigh said...

I wish I'd heard about this give-away day in time to think of something myself! (Yes, it's too late; we have homeschool co-op today so it's my busiest day of the week.) I would LOVE some of your soap; the last special soap I got is down to a mushy little ball in my shower! I just bought a soap holder to keep my soap drier and prevent future mushy little balls, so I can promise that your soap will be properly cared for - and oh, SO appreciated - here. :-) My little guy has the driest skin on the planet, and I've heard goat's milk soap may help him. So I'd get a scent for me and a scent for him.....

marie*jolie said...

I am a soapmaker, too, but it's been awhile since I've made any as we're in a very small home at the moment and I just don't have the space for it. Needless to say, I'm desperate for some handmade bars- our last homemade soaps ran out a couple of months ago. I'd love to win yours. :)

Treasuresofjoy said...

Soap sounds like a great gift! I would love a scented one! my daughter is a bit sensitive and I would love to try this on her!

Heidi said...

I would love to try your soap because I heard goats milk soap is the best. My boyfriend's mother bought him a bar of goats milk soap in Montana (Montana Sage) but he won't let me use it! So it sits in it's packaging, collecting dust. If I won, I would have my very own goats milk soap & I would use it all!

Thanks for the giveaway!

NAB said...

Soap...yummy just right for a nice soak in the tub!

Pepper said...

I don't know that I will have the most interesting reason but OMG I wanna try your soap!!! :) hehe My mom used to get me goat's milk soap, but the company she got it from went under so no soap for me...but goat's milk soap always reminds me of my mom, and now I live in a different country than her so if I won I would be getting clean and reminded of my mother..hmm, what a combination! LOL Thanks for the chance!

Pam said...

Wow! I hope I win. I love goat soap.

Leanna said...

I have always wondered about the benefits/marvels of goat's milk soap and would love to try first hand. However, I left my dog alone with some other milk related products only to find them gone when I return...would he be burping lavendar-scented bubbles...oh, to find out.

Kirsten said...

I love handmade soap (I'm kind of a soap snob) and I don't believe I have ever tried goatmilk soap. I would love to give yours a try!

Meg said...

There are several reasons I would love to try your goat milk soap:

1. I adore goat cheese. Soap can't be too far off.
2. My 2 year old daughter rashes up to most bought soaps.
3. We got to pet a baby goat yesterday so goats are definately on the mind.
4. Your blog is great, your soap must be too.

Charity said...

I have never tried goat milk soap before, it sounds interesting!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Jess said...

I wish this could be funny....maybe nessecity will win?? My daughter has really sensitive skin, that will break out and make her ezcema worse if she uses the "wrong" soap. I think this would be great for her to try!

Anonymous said...

We just got three goats yesterday and they have been raring up, threatening mutiny if we don't start using goats-milk soap. They're kind of big, so it's scary. Please save me!!!
I do love our goats, though...when they're not on the attack. We have 2 San Clemente Island goats and 1 Nubian...so fun to watch and be around!

Shannon Hillinger said...

I love the idea of the goats picking the number! I'm almost out of my no longer available favorite soap, and I'm looking for something fun to replace it with.

Michelle said...

I live in a condo in a big city, and I have a lot of envy over your country lifestyle. If I had your soap, I feel like I could live vicariously when I use it. :)
Also though, I have a lot of purfume allergies, and have a hard time finding soap that doesn't make me sneeze and dry out my skin. I'd never actually thought of using homemade goat's milk soap before, so I'd be really interested to try it!

Em said...

Oh, I LOVE LOVE LOVE goat's milk soap!!! I really like the lavender 'flavor' Now that my daughter is getting older (7)and running around a lot, I am having trouble getting her to take a shower or bath! She's such a tomboy... She has started to stink after having particularly active days, and I think that some nice lavender goat's milk soap would make her feel special enough to WANT to smell sweet! If I have some it's rare, so I don't like to share my special soap! If I could win 3 bars(3!!!!) I would let her have her own!!! Thanks! emandmikey@aol.com

Melissa Ann said...

Okay, I hate the taste of coffee (and so does my hubby), but I love the smell of it! I would love to try the unscented with cocoa butter and coffee! Cocoa butter for my 5 month pregnant with twins belly (help prevent "twin skin" stretch marks!)and coffee for my super duper sensitive smeller. Ahh, that sounds heavenly!

Janet said...

I have read your blog for a while and it is so inspiring to me, as one day I would like to also live the rural, homesteading lifestyle!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

I always love good soap. It has been hard to find soap that is not drying to the skin. Would love to try goat milk soap.
Jocelyn

Michele said...

Love soaps. I just tried goat soap for the first time.

Cassie said...

I've never tried Goat made soap. Would love to one day try making some myself. I have however had milk soap, and that stuff really leaves you feeling soft and smooth. I wonder what this would do for my skin, I have psoriasis and am always looking for new ways to sooth the itch and dryness. Today I am starting a special diet that will hopefully relieve my skin symptoms, then I could try the soap just for the joy of trying new soap :)
Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

charonfamily said...

what a great giveaway. Thanks!

Jill said...

Ooh, I've never even heard of goats milk soap, which makes me want to try it even more! I think goats are pretty cute and it would really freak my husband out if he knew we were using soap made out of their milk :P I think that right there is reason enough to try it.

Brooke said...

I have never even seen goat milk soap, so I would love to try it. Plus my mom had a goat she loved named George when she was little, so I would love to tease her a bit about how I have "George Soap". :-)

Angi said...

I have really dry skin so I'm always on the lookout for a moisturizing soap, and I'm hoping your goat's milk will do the trick.

RebeccaMom said...

I'd like to try your soap because I used to raise goats and the milk is wonderful :) I never made soap, though, so I need to try it!

Laura said...

hi, I never tried goats soap and it will be nice to win and try it out. I think this is the first time I ever heard about that. Thanks Laura

laura@beckcentral.net

Kristine Hanson said...

this is not an interesting comment but here goes...I have never used goat soap so I would love to try some!

Jada said...

Oooo...goat's milk soap! The last time I used hand-crafted goat's milk soap, my body was soooo soft! I love it! I can't wait to get some goats myself!

poshusta1 @ integrity . com

Shealynn Benner said...

How fantastic!! I used to make soap, but never out of milk... just oils. Always want to try goat milk, and others. Would love to win! Handmade soap is so much better than mass produced soap and body wash!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Here is my giveaway:

Tara said...

I would love to try your goat soap. I have very sensitive skin and have tried a lot of things to help with it, but never goat soap. My hands are in rough shape. It sounds really nice. It is nice of you to offer it.

Thistle Cove Farm said...

SOAP is the only way to bath! Not that detergent stuff sold as 'soap' but the real deal...water, lye, fat and, sometimes, some scent. It's the only thing I've used for years and recommend it to everyone I know and folks I meet. I truly believe if people with skin problems would use hand crafted soap, those skin problems would disappear. But if their dermatologist doesn't give them permission, they'll never try it. So sad. They are missing one of the best, most pleasant experiences of their lives.
Goat's milk and other hand crafted soap not only moisturizes my skin it rinses clean.
Can you tell I'm enthusiastic about SOAP? -smile-

klaudia said...

That is such a fantastic giveaway! I'd love to try your goat milk soaps because I love looking after my skin and hate using any chemical based shower gels...because you actually own goats and it would be so exciting to use something so authentic as I read your post I could almost smell and feel a natural, healthy yummy bar of goats milk soap (I mean I wouln't eat it! but it really sounds great-we need to look after our skin!). Thank you for an exciting giveaway!!!

Breezy Babies said...

I love goats milk soap, good thing it doesn't smell like goats!

Bella said...

I have been told that my old dry skin would improve greatly witht the use of goats milk soap...would love to win yours!

Carrie said...

I live in a community with houses too close together and, although I dream of a mini-farm with a backyard chicken coup, and goats for milk cheese (and soap!), I have to wait for a future time where we have the land to do it. If you send me some soap, I can live vicariously through you every time I use it! Thanks :)

DangAndBlast! said...

Oh my, would LOVE some soap, and I can't believe I didn't come across you before -- your blog is the type that helps me live vicariously... in the middle of Houston, with a supremely city-boy husband, longing for your life... happy! Now a subscriber to your blog :)

Sara said...

I live with three roommate boys who are messy, and as a girl, I feel that goat's milk soap could possibly be the only thing to keep me squeaky clean, day after day... it will say, "Begone, boy cooties!"

*grin*

What a fantastic idea for a giveaway, and the goat in the photo is adorable. I've got occupational eczema on my hands which is aggravated by hot water and soap, so hopefully a nicer, kinder soap would be a great help in keeping that at bay a bit.
(The doctor says "Don't wash your hands!", but... that's gross.)

Trudy Callan said...

It sounds luxurious and great for the skin, and it would be an excuse to pamper myself which I rarely do with five children.

I've never tried goat milk soap before. Can't wait. Hopefully!

Paige said...

Oh great! I've been wanting to try goat milk soap!

Craftastic said...

I'd love to win your goat milk soap. I'm tired of the derisive looks I get from cows who feel disenfranchised by my use of their byproducts in everyday life. I tell them that I only drink soy milk and that I'm lactose intolerant, but this doesn't seem to matter to them. (Maybe they are paradoxically offended by the fact that I can't consume dairy depite their unwillingness to share it around in good humor). Goats, however, are such pleasant little creatures who would actually be proud of the products created thanks to them. Cows are kind of arrogant, goats are friendly. I vote for goats!!

hipchic~cynde said...

Goats milk soap...now that is a new one to me would love to try it. I have had goats milk, didn't like it much, my husband loves goat burger and well soap sounds about perfect. Makes me miss my goats

Laurie said...

I just found your blog via Sew Mama Sew and I'm going to put u on my homestead blogs! Love reading homestead blogs. Would love to try goats milk soap. We are learning, reading, etc to try and live more off the land ourselves. Tired of corporate america!
Happy Summer!

marzy dotes said...

Hmm, I've never tried goat milk soap before, but it sounds wonderful.

Stacey said...

very cool...i would love to try it out! come check out my giveaway too!

Ashlee said...

I used to have a cousin that made soap. She made the most marvelous chocolate scented kind. I remember buying two bars of it along with a few other scents. I used one bar and hid the other in my dresser. If I left it out, I knew my Mom would steal it :) She was cleaning out my dresser for me and thought I had hidden a candy bar and forgotten about it so she threw my soap away!
I haven't had any since then! I would love to try some of yours!

seemommysew said...

wonderful! I've tried goat's milk soap before, but it was a long time ago and I would love to try some again.

free indeed said...

I wouldn't mind winning. I have several skin conditions and was curious to know if a natural soap would be better for my problems. I"m thinking if it's all natural it's gotta be better than store bought...we had pet goats once...girls took them for walks on a dog leash, it was too cute. THey have such wonderful and different personalities!

tammiemarie said...

We recently finished our bathroom renovation - so some fancy new soaps would be great!

Kaye Prince said...

Omigosh, I think the idea of being picked randomly by one of your goats is the nest (pretty please do it!).

I would love to try your soap; I have a hard time with a lot of soaps and fragrances and it would be nice to see if yours works for me.

Jessica said...

I would love to try your soap and I wish I had some funny thoughtful note to leave here for you! You are totally living my farm dream though so I am going to add you to my blog list and live vicariously through your farm :)

onetwinsister said...

I read your blog and I happen to be moving from the suburbs (in Reno, NV) to a small ranch in North Carolina. Talk about a change of pace. Our move is this week! I would love your handmade goat milk soap for several reasons. 1-I've never heard of such a thing. 2-I was fed goat milk as a baby because my parents had a several goats on our 3/4 acre property just outside of town. 3- I love scented, handmade soaps. They are at every sink in my house- actually packed in boxes right this moment though:(

Elizabeth said...

AN ODE TO A GOAT

Goat, goats, goats,
you have so much to offer.

Your cheese is divine,
Your milk is quite creamy.

Your wool makes soft sweaters,
Your baaa it's just dreamy.

I'd never use you for your meat,
What I love the most is your soap,
Such a treat!

djaj said...

this is a good Idea !
I gave up shower gel and liquid soap, I got back to "traditionnal soap" beacause it is more both ecological and economical... And it is better for sensitive skins !
I never heard about goats milk soap, it would really be fun to try !

MooMama said...

I must admit I have never tried goat's milk soap but would love to!

I recently got inspired to create some of my own and then got intimidated by the process.

Tell your goats hello from me! ;)

Erynn said...

I've been wanting to try Goat's milk soap. I hope I win.

bashtree said...

I'd love to try your goat milk soap, mostly because I had no idea that soap comes from milk, but it SOUNDS luxurious. I am really ignorant, and really curious...and I love artisan soaps, so this is opening a whole new world for me! How did I miss this???

andrea creates said...

I 'd like the goat milk soap because I want to see how you've disguised the 'goaty' smell:)
And I love handmade soaps!

Laura said...

besides loving handmade soap, I hope to own goats in the near future (fingers crossed) and am considering all the possibilities of what we can do with them. If i love goats milk soap that may just be the thing for me and my little ones.

Taiya said...

I've heard great things about goat milk soap. I would love to try it!

ScottChrisCoriCassiCali said...

I suppose the reason for trying it is that I'd like to learn to make soap. Well, actually I just want to do it with my Dad, he's always wanted to try. It would be a nice gift for him.
Thanks for the chance.

laurelbug said...

I WANT this soap! I want it because everytime I bathe my baby girl with regular soap I imagine all the chemicals slowly seeping through her skin and ever so stealthily destroying her beautiful, pure, baby insides. In addition, I could steal a bar for myself. I don't so much care about my insides, I figure at this point I'm a lost cause, but I sure do need my outsides looking good...who knows when I'll need to trade in my husband for a younger model! Thanks and I hope I get to try your soap!

Melissa said...

i would love to try some goat soap!! my husband is always complaining about the soap I buy in stores. He says that they always dry out his skin. Also having kids I am trying to keep toxins out of our home, so I'd love to use it on them also!

Rebecca said...

I'd love to try this for my extra-sensitive skin, seems to be worse since I'm pregnant right now. This would also be great for when babe arrives! thanks for the chance!

goldenbird said...

Hi! I would love to win the goat soap. Thanks for the giveaway!

Kara said...

71 comments, holy cow! That is one way to draw out your lurkers! I would like to try goat milk soap because I am getting another dairy girl soon, her name is Honey and is a Nubian. But how about 1 bar and a good recipe to make my own if I like it! :)

Lisa said...

I love soap! What a fun giveaway and your little sheep it too cute!!

Melissa Haren said...

I use soap from the health food store, too! I believe avoiding all the chemical additives makes all the difference in the world!!!

stepstep said...

ohhhhhh my - that lil' goaty is A-DOR-A-BLE!!! i wish i could give him/her a huge hug!!! but i'll be more than happy to win the goat milk soap as a consolation instead! ;)

Me said...

My parents own goats and my mother swears they are nothing but trouble. I'd love to give her the soap and then surprise her after she loves it by letting her know her "troublesome" goats could be useful after all. Thanks so much!

MaMa said...

Well I'd love to try your soap because I've never heard of soap made from goats! I hope it wasn't too painful for the goat! LOL Plus, goat soap would be a huge motivator for my little ones...imagine tell them to go bathe with the goat? Thanks for hosting.

I love handmade soap, but can't usually afford it. Count me in!

kirstentorrado said...

i come from a family of sensitive skin people. i was so excited to read about your product. i would love the chance to win & try your soap...especially if i can purchase it in the future!

Kimara@weefolkart said...

There's an old Irish saying...
“Put silk on a goat, and it's still a goat.”

But, I say...
"Put goat's milk on your skin, and it feels like silk!" (Okay, groan!)

Thanks for the chance to win. BTW... all your fragrances sound heavenly!

Lisa @ Life with 4! said...

hello to you!
I would love to win some goat-milk soap. I've used homemade soaps (i didn't make it) and love how it smells and feels. I have one goat, i've debated breeding her and then raising some younguns'. If i did, then i would milk her and have thought of making our own soap with it.
i think i'll hang around and read some of your other farm adventures.

grendelskin said...

Oh, what a thoughtful giveaway! I've never tried goat's milk soap, but my instinct is that it would be like "regular" milk soap but better. Why? 'Cause lots of people are allergic to cow's milk but I never heard of anyone being allergic to goat's milk! When a baby can't do cow's milk, you go get the kid goat's milk and he or she is set. So goat's milk must be kinder all around, wouldn't you say?

Kindershop said...

I so would want to try your soap. I would probably pick the spring meadow frangrance. And why would I want to try?!: Well, I think it would be the closest thing to bathing in goats milk like Cleopatra did. And didn't that make her beautifull...?!

Threaded Basil said...

My daughter is in love with barn animals right now, and she would *flip* to use goat milk soap in her bath. She would 'bah bah bah'.

Just Charming said...

I've never tried goat milk soap. I hear it really makes your skin soft! Sounds lovely. Hope to win.

CJ said...

Great giveaway! That little sheep in the next post is adorable!

Ginny said...

I've never tried goat milk soap. I have dry skin, something like this would probably be good for it :)

Aim said...

My husband would love to try your soap, he claims that he used to get a soap that he liked before we got married, we can't find that kind any more. So I have been on a quest to find a soap that he likes for the last 11 years. So if I win and he likes your soap, you would end my quest.

If I am lucky enough to win you can contact me through my website www.radseams.com

Jamie said...

Well, I was just discussing this goat milk soap with my son, and he wants to know if it TASTES like goats milk. So, if we were to win, not only would we be bathing in it, but apparently eating it as well. Maybe with icecream?

luke and pamela said...

oooh goats milk soap! sounds so creamy and delicious! i'd like to try it since i've never tried it, and also since i just gave birth to a newborn baby boy. showers are my only luxury getaway these days. maybe he would like to try it too!

Ariane said...

Wow! I've never used goats milk soap. That sounds so great. I'm not that clever as to why I should win the goats milk soap more than others. I think it's great that you moved to the country from the city and are doing all these cool new things. Thanks for sharing it with use.

I would LOVE to win some of your soap. How exciting.

And I have to comment about that adorable little cutie ~ you cannot eat that poor baby. He's just too cute.

Thank you for your participation and a great giveaway.

I love handmade soap! So special!

Annie said...

First off - I love your life! As a city girl I would love to pack up and do exactly what you are doing, I'm sure my cluelessness would lead to all sorts of adventures! I LOVE Goat's milk products, my little ones and myself have horribly dry skin and it is the ONLY thing that sooths, I have only ever used store-bought though and homemade would be a special treat!

Nadine said...

I'd love to try your soaps on my 7 month old baby who gets very dry skin. Fantastic giveaway!!!

beccy said...

My own forays into making soap nearly burnt the house down (ok, I'm exaggerating but the lye was scary!) So I'll have to stick to buying, or if I'm lucky, winning my soap from now on :)

Lauren said...

Your soap sounds wonderful! I would love to try it because I am trying to get away from all the harsh chemicals in commercial type stuff!

LuLu said...

I'd love to try your soap because my husband has developed very severe skin alergies and we've spent so much time and money trying to find a good soap for him! (and besides I wanna try it too) - but I think it will work nicely for him too!

Bylulu@live.com

emtdlb said...

That soap is so great for my teenaged daughter. She has a tendency to break out and the goat milk soap really helps that, and at that age they don't need to worry about their complexion. Thanks for the chance!!!!

Laura and Kelly Allen said...

I'm so jealous of your story. My husband and I live outside of Portland, OR and we would love nothing more than to be able to buy 100 acres and grow our own food and make our own everything. I so don't like relying on the grocery store. I'd love to try your goat's milk soap because I want to support other people who are living the dream.

Jennifer said...

sounds awesome, count me in!

Laura said...

I LOVE trying new soaps! I am a soap maker myself, but have never used goatsmilk. I'd love to try your soap!

Genevieve P said...

We need to be careful about what soaps we use b/c the whole family--especially my husband--has really sensitive skin. We're also trying to use more natural/homemade/greeny things so this soap would really be great! Thanks for the giveaway!

Deanna said...

I'd love to try your soap - I'm trying to get away from the chemicals in the store soaps! love your scents too!
thanks!

Lisa said...

My daughter like yourself has very sensitive skin. She had horrible rashes as a baby before we traced the horrible reaction to commercial soaps (even baby soaps). Since we discovered this, she has only used goats milk soap from the health food store and her skin is much better. I would love to try your soaps on her for some variety & new fragrances!

missmama said...

I love goat milk, cheese, Keefer, yogurt, and cheese so naturally i should love the soap. not to eat. i know.

Alicia said...

My 1-year-old and I suffer from eczema. I've been told that goat's milk soap is very gentle and moisturizing...perfect for delicate, sensitive skin. I've never tried goat's milk soap, and I'd love to indulge myself and mini-me. =)

no4daughter said...

I would like to try your soap because, having never used goat's milk soap, I am a goat's milk virgin.

elizabeth said...

I love goatmilk soap! It has to be the best soap out there!

I am entering because I've never tried goat milk soap- it sounds like a real treat for my psoriatic skin!

Goats milk soap - yes please!

My daughter get's eczema from any other kind of soap so I'd love to win!

Annette said...

Goat Soap

I've moistened my hands
With lotion at night
Now I want to try
To wash my feet
In the tub
Using your goat
Made soap

Pick me please
And I will fly
So high
I might touch
The sky

Haha!! I am no poet!!! haha!!!

modernquiltlove said...

Interesting... hmm.

I'd like to try your soap because my husband has a new obsession with goats, specifically fainting goats (which I don't think are used for milk...) he thinks we should have one in our Philadelphia row home and let him sleep at the foot of our bed, kind of like a dog but instead a goat. Are you laughing now :)

Getting to try goats milk soap might actually further his cause to convince me that we should get goats once we have some land. Of course we will be living in a tent because land (not land and a house) is all we can afford. But goats are good company right?

:)

ps I'm glad I found your blog we really do intend on moving onto a couple acres in the next few years or so and it's nice to see how others have done it.

Sara said...

I just love the idea that you make your soap...that is just fabulous.

Hi Deborah, all I can thank of is that saying "You can't teach an old goat new tricks", well this old goat would love to try your soap. Sounds wonderful. I also think it is wonderful that you and your family have moved to a farm.

I'd definitely be interested in your soap; and so would my M-I-L, who is quite sensitive to fragrances. Thanks for the offer!

I live in a town that has some seriously hard water... as kids we would say, "Chew before you swallow" when drinking it. It is wreaking havoc on my skin - no matter how much lotion I use, it looks and feels very dry. I have heard that goat milk soap does wonders for dry skin, and would be so grateful to get some!

Heather said...

I've never tried goat milk soap before, and I've been quite curious about it. I was intrigued to read that, in addition to goat's milk, you also use olive oil in your soaps.

Thanks for participating in the giveaway!

Cheers,
Heather

Caranam said...

The goats are adorable! I've always wanted to try goat milk soap. I know that it is supposed to be really good for the skin.

Thanks for such a neat giveaway!

Tiff said...

For starters I have never tried Goat's milk soap. I'm wondering if it will heal my dry skin. I bet it would.

Hi, Deborah. Ever since having my son, I have been slowly turning to the green side trying to purge all the chemical-laden things that I have put in and on my body as well as my family's. And one thing I haven't tried is goat's milk soap. We live in CA, where it is hot and dry and, in the next 6 months, we'll be moving to NC, where it is hot and humid. Due to the hard water here, our skin is dry and bit flaky. I had heard that goat milk soap would be very moisturizing, but I hadn't tried any yet. I think it would be great to try it on my "kid"! Sorry, I am usually much wittier =) Thanks!

Pam said...

I would rather win some wool roving...I'm sure your goat milk soap is great but I am new to felting and look for it everywhere. I know nothing about goat milk soap but it sounds like a good thing from the other comments you've received. Thanks for sharing. http://sewmanyprojectssolittletime.blogspot.com hellopf@yahoo.com

Georgiann said...

I would love to win your soap, as that would be a little piece of your life, which seems so sweet -- I just got a little lost in your cows, sheep, goats and turkeys -- what a beautiful blog. (Do you have any Jacob Sheep?) Peace.

Chancy said...

I'd love to try your soap. Especially because over the last few years I've developed sensitive skin and it's hard to find soaps that don't irritate it.

jenerekfamily said...

Oooh, I'm TOTALLY interested. I've never tried goat milk soap before but I love the idea.

Goat milk soap sounds yummy for my skin! Its as simple as that. I would love to try it. Thank you!

Katherine said...

Well, goat cheese is my absolute favorite food on Earth, so I imagine I'd be awfully fond of goatsmilk soap as well!

susan said...

melissa s. said...

I visited a goat farm with my 5yo and 3yo a couple weeks ago. They got to milk a goat and they tasted goat's milk ice cream. Needless to say, goats are very big topics of conversation around here now. Having some goat's milk soap would thrill them to no end!

janet said...

i love goats! i love eating goat's cheese and ice cream! i've never tried goat's milk soap before. so i'm definitely curious. thanks!

calicodaisy said...

I've never tried goat milk soap but have tried goat milk cheese and LaLoo (?) goat milk ice cream. So lush!

LeslieW. said...

Sounds wonderful!

grandmarockton said...

just think how the kids will love to bath in goats milk soap or leave off the soap part and they will jump right in!

Heather said...

I'd love to try it! Both of my kids have eczema and we're constantly on the Quest for the Perfect Soap.

Whimsical Creations said...

I have never tried goat milk soap. I would love to.

Great idea!!

Amy said...

in all honesty, goats sorta scare me... it seems like they can totally read your mind or see straight through you or something. yes, yes, this may be insane, but perhaps a rich goats' milk soap will calm my fears? ;o)

Eema-le said...

I would love to try your soap because I've tried goat milk soap before and it was wonderful.

emilyflippinmaruna said...

I'd like to try your soap because I have crafter hands! My thumbs are falling apart. :) I need moisture and I've heard that goat milk soap is the best for that.

Thanks for the opportunity and the peak into your interesting life.

i would love to try your soap because handmade soaps are the best! Regards. xxx

Deb said...

Great giveaway...I've never used goat's milk soap. I would love to try it because my kids have mild problem skin and I'm still looking for a good soap to use on them (not that nasty stuff from the supermarket).

MoniCue said...

I love everything about goats--I'd love to try your soap!

Katie said...

I love to try your soap because we were just on a field trip to the farm. When the farmer gave us a tour she showed us the goats and told us a bit about them. She mentioned that they make soap with the goats' milk. When it was daughter's turn to try to milk the goat, she wouldn't actually do it. But she did ask rather loudly, "Where's the soap Mommy?"

Michelle at Boulderneigh said...

I made the mistake of having follow-up comments emailed to me; yikes! You're going to have your hands or hooves full trying to pick a winner from over 150 comments!

Jennadesigns said...

I'm a recent handmade soap convert - love it. I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful my skin feels now that it's not subjected to the awful store stuff! Night and day difference! Neat giveaway!

ikkinlala said...

I'd like to try your goat milk soap because I've never tried goat milk soap. I've tried goat milk, but not goat milk soap. Also, I'm glad to see that you have unscented options (I get migraines from synthetic fragrances).

M said...

I was given some of your soap as a gift, it's a great product! I'd love to try some different types & pass these on to my family :)

Hilda Siemens said...

I love love love homemade soap but I have yet to try goat milk soap. To be honest I don't think I've tried anything from a goat before, which is odd considering I grew up in the country, so maybe trying some of your soap is just what I need!

two hippos said...

Neat. I've heard great things about goat milk soap (I certainy love goat cheese).

I'm hosting a giveaway and a fat quarter swap as well. Come on by :)

Angela Coffman said...

OOh, I'd love to try your soap!

Shari said...

I once had the pleasure of eating a goat's milk geese round served on sla drizzed with honey and nuts from a local tree----in a rustic farmhouse in The Netherlands. Will using the goat's milk soap bring me that same pleasure?

Susan said...

I've heard great things about goat milk soap, yet I've never tried it. I do love all things goat though, my brother owes a nice little herd of Boar goats (they are family members and are not sold for meat). My son is collecting goat hair for me to spin. We'll have to see about that, Boar hair is not really good for spinning. :) I would love to give your soap a try.

Bill said...

I would love to try the soap on my 14 month old daughter. She has had horrible exzema and rashes since day one and is actually getting allergy tested in a few weeks. I have tried everything and still have not found "The thing" to make her skin smooth and beautiful.

-joy

Tanya said...

Great giveaway! I would love to try your soap because I want to try goatmilk soap for my son, who has eczema.

amity ville boronia said...

Well, for one I love goats. So cute. But I'm always looking for the perfect soap. The search continues!

debbiekl said...

Cute sheep - I wish I could buy him! I'd love to try goats milk soap. We try to avoid chemicals as much as possible and people forget that daily showers include a bunch of them!

Laurel Groh said...

Wow! What a great give away. I'd love to try one of your soap because I've heard that goat soap is great for your skin and with all of my skin problems, i could use something that's great for it!

thank you. laurel

Kimmy Davis said...

Cute idea--I'd never have thought of soap. And wow, I'm comment #170!! Woot!

Raheli said...

My husband and I are building a house and we're trying to put in separate plumbing for gray-water so we can collect it and use it for watering the orchard or garden. Now we need to rethink all the soaps that we are using and make sure that they are biodegradable. So I would definitely love to try your goat milk soap... and cheer you on if you developed a goat milk dishwasher soap!
Thanks!

Sue said...

I've tried goat milk soap before & really liked it, so that's my reason for wanting to be considered. Thanks for offering this giveaway!

peony paperie said...

I've never tried goat milk soap, and I'd love to. My friend raises angora (?) goats and has invited us over to play with her kids this summer, and I'd love to take some of this soap to her!

Julianne said...

Goats Mil Soap? Delicious!

Allison said...

I would like to try your goats milk soap because I like goats and want to support them in all that they do!!

dds07 said...

I'd like to try to soap because I have this long standing joke with my husband that I'm going to quit my job, raise goats and sell goat yogurt. We'll call it goat-gurt:) Ok, so I'm actually serious that this is what I'd like to do, but my husband doesn't think I'll make any money. He doesn't think there are riches in goat-yogurt...

mandapanda said...

I just love your blog header, it's a gorgeous picture! And the goat in your last post is extremely cute!! You could advertise him as "gas free organic mower and fertilizer." that migt work! lol
I've never tried goat soap before, I onder what it's like...the blackberry scent sound devine!

TheBackPorchQuilters said...

I have been using goat milk soap for two years now and I would love to win this

Little Lady Cakes said...

Haiku for you. :)

I love milk and soap.
I'm lactose intolerant.
Goat milk soap is best!

Jules @ MoonCat Farms said...

I would love to try goat milk soap! I have sensitive skin and have been slowly switching everything in the house to products (mostly handmade) that don't have all the nasty chemicals in them with names we can't pronounce.

I'm in awe of your lifestyle - it is what my husband and I are aiming for eventually. We've started our journey with small steps! I've signed up as a follower of your blog too.

Thank you for entering me in your drawing.

Tasha said...

I would love to try your goats milk soap to see if it helps my eczema ;)

rachellake said...

I love using handmade soap, and I've yet to try any featuring goats milk. So excited to have found your blog.
Thanks for the giveaway!

cheekypoet said...

Since having my baby girl I have been very conscious of the chemicals in our lives. I would love to use your soap.

Abbi said...

I would love to win. I haven't used homemade soap for a long time, and never any made with Goat's milk. I grew up drinking goats milk (my parents have a hobby farm and raise goats) and we still drink it much of the time but we have never made soap. We do like to make cheese and yogurt however. Thanks for having the giveaway.

Ammie said...

When I was about six, my mother was birthing my brother. She sent me and my sister and my other brother to my aunt's house, where she fed us Cream of Wheat, which I'd never had, with goat's milk, which I'd also never had. I remember that flavor to this day!

I wonder, what does goat's milk soap smell like, or, heaven forbid, taste like?

Hehe! I am not sure that being interesting is my forte! Instead I will just send you gratitude and good will. Your sheep are lovely. Your blog is lovely.

Super Fun Mama said...

I've heard goat milk is amazing for the skin but have never tried it. That is why I'd love to try it. Thanks.

Jenny said...

Well, we have a funny goat story that we like to tell around here. When we lived in New Zealand for a year, someone put a classified ad in the local paper, wanting to borrow a goat for a week so he didn't have to buy a lawn mower. That has nothing to do with milk or soap, but it's silly!

Liz said...

Our skin is dry and the crum we buy at the store is worthless. I would love to see how Goat Soap measures up. I would love to say I love Goat Soap and get all my friends hooked. We could be your Goat Soap fan club. You wouldn't be able to make enough Goat Soap to satisfy us!!

gretchen said...

my husband and i have a strong dream of becoming goat farmers in vermont. we took a course on learning about goat farmers. we moved to vermont. then we found ourselves out in southern california far away from our dream of simply living and existing with our dream goats. goat farming has become our backup plan - if PhD programs and teaching careers don't seem to pan out for us, and we just long for a simpler existence, but it sure would be nice to have some goat's milk soap to remind us of that dream...

k-ron said...

goat cheese is delicious,
and goat yogurt is nutritious...
please met me try your goat soap,
to see just how soap-licious
(it is!).

i've heard great things about it and would love to check it out!

SavingDiva said...

I have a small obsession with soap. I used to get my fix from Lush, but I live too far away to go and spend an afternoon smelling. I'm looking for a new soap addiction.

Dianna said...

Oh my goodness, what a great giveaway. I love goats - they are my favourite animal. My daughter is 3 and whenever we go to the farm, we always spend a fair bit of time with the goats - petting them, feeding them. They are such characters. I always ask her if she thinks we could take one home with us - she always says we could. I ask her if she thinks her dad would notice and she tells me he wouldn't. I'm yet to try it for real though, but maybe one day, lol! In the meantime, I'll cross my fingers that I'm lucky enough to win one of your bars of soap - I think it'll be the closest I get to owning a real goat for now!

Thank you for the chance to join in with this giveaway.

Alisa said...

Why I would want to try your soap? Let's see. For many years now I have been a stay at home mom. As most mom's know a shower is usually the high point of the day. It's when we feel relaxed and peaceful. If only for a few minutes. Add to that some yummy soap with a really pretty fragrance and we feel feminine, recharged and ready to take on the day.

bellsjo said...

Please, please post photos of your goats choosing the winner - how much fun is that??! What a lovely giveaway - thank you so much for the chance to win. The reason I want to try your soap is to see the look on my sons face when I tell him he is being washed with goats milk - it will be priceless I am sure!

Zarah said...

WOW! Goat milk soap?! AWESOME! Sounds like something right up my alley. I have sensitive skin AND a sensitive concience. I try to steer clear of all things manufactured in ways that hurt nature, animals or other people. This would be SO cool and I would love to be able to spread the word about something SO earthy, fun and ecological! :D

Ps. ...and I adore goats. They're just so much fun and so sweet! :D

babalisme said...

I'd love to be chosen by one of your goats! What do I have to do to be liked by them? That's it! If you let me bath in your goat soap maybe they'll like me instantly!

Curry said...

I've always wanted to make my own soap, but never actually tried. I'd love to try yours - perhaps it'll inspire me to make some!

Thea said...

Hmmm, I'd love some of your soap in my home for my daughter and husband to try. They both have sensitive skin and I think your goat soap might agree with them.

thanks for sharing
