It’s a little something called Goat’s Milk Soap. Here are a few things you should know ……
Farm Fresh Goat Milk Soap Facts
- Aids in treating acne, reducing skin inflammation, and soothes dry skin.
- Goat’s milk soap is less allergenic than synthetically loaded commercial soaps.
- Helps reduce wrinkles.
- Goat’s milk soap has alpha-hydroxy acids that soften the skin.
- Goat’s milk is the closest to the PH level of the human skin and helps protect the skin from bacteria and chemicals.
- Goat’s milk is loaded with vitamins and nutrients.
- Goat milk soaps are mild and safe for use on all skin types and conditions.
- Goat’s milk consists of natural emollients and triglycerides that act as natural moisturizers.
- Cleopatra was known for her natural beauty and amazing skin. Her secret was bathing in goat’s milk.
- Each bar of Candace and Kids goat’s milk soap is approximately 35% goat’s milk. We do not use any water. The liquid in our handmade batches is 100% fresh goat’s milk.
Important Facts about Candace and Kids Soaps
- All of the liquid in the bars is 100% farm fresh goat’s milk. We do not use water. You may see a white substance on top of our bars. This is “soap dust” and is proof that we use goat’s milk in our batches. It will wash away after first use.
- Made of saponified olive oil, unrefined shea butter, palm oil, soy oil and coconut oil.
- “Pure” is the base bar. It is made of approximately 35% goat’s milk and the above oils.
- The colorants in the bars are All Natural. We do not use any dyes, etc….
- Several bars have botanicals. They are “wildcrafted” which means they are grown in the wild without chemicals and pesticides.
- All bars cure for at least six weeks before they are polished, wrapped and sold. The bars are nice and hard. They will last approximately twice as long as a traditional bar of soap.
- The soaps are shampoo bars too. They lather and condition well.
- Each bar contains Vitamin E which is a natural preservative. This is an important ingredient in soap making. Due to the amount of Vitamin E in each bar, it doesn’t matter if the bar is used immediately or a year from purchasing, the consumer will still get the skin benefits and aromatherapy.
- The corrugated wrapper is made of recycled cardboard. The labels are printed on recycled paper with recycled ink.
I use the Charcoal bar daily as a facial cleanser. It’s less expensive than other OTC cleansers and last longer. My skin has never looked better!
I also have rough dry scaly hands, especially in the winter time. The goat’s milk soap helps to keep my hands healed and smooth.
My hunter use the camo or camo and dirt soap to bathe in before heading out to the woods so they will smell like the woods. Ya have to fool those deer ya know!
I work a lot outside, especially in the garden and the bugs aggravate me to death. The Buzz Away soap helps to keep bugs (mainly mosquito’s) at bay. I don’t bathe in it, I just simply swipe it behind my knees, the bends of me elbows, behind my ears, basically anywhere there’s a pulse point. Amazing stuff, really works.
Are you ready to soothe that acne, eczema, athlete’s feet, rough cracked hands/feet or soothe your babies diaper rash the all natural way?
If you answered YES then follow this link, shop around to find the best soaps to fit your needs.
Let me know how you love it, because I know you will:)

Growing up I remember my Grandmother making big pots of this soup for the work hands on the farm, which consisted mostly of family!
My Grandparents (on my father’s side) raised five boys and a lot of tobacco.
I can remember tobacco patches as far as I could see and thinking how huge those tobacco fields looked.
I guess when you’re a child things tend to look a lot bigger than they seem, because now I can pass by those same fields and they don’t look so big. However, those same fields aren’t filled with rows of tobacco anymore, instead they are sprinkled with houses.
I can also remember my grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles stripping tobacco in a little run down house that was insulated with old newspapers and had a pot-bellied stove in it that was feed with coal.
Often times my grandmother would have a pot of soup “keeping warm” on top of that old stove.
The kids would play in the back rooms of that old house while the adults stripped the tobacco.
Of course, when us kids got old enough the playing ceased and we were put to work!
Things sure have changed in the last 40 years, but these memories will be with me forever.
I hope you will make this soup and make some memories with your family as well.
1 1/2 pounds ground chuck
3-4 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 medium onion, chopped
1 quart tomato juice
1 can beef broth
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1 cup sliced carrots
1 can green beans
1 can whole kernel corn
1 can green peas
Brown and drain ground chuck. In a large stock pot combine all ingredients and cover with enough water to make soup.
Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
Make a big ole pone of cornbread to serve with this and you talk about good!!

Not only is it the month in which my oldest son was born, but it also means chili and sweatshirt weather!
Sooooo, as the cooler nights arrive get ready with a warm pot of chili!
Sorry I don’t have any pics. Not sure why I don’t! But the recipe is easy! ENJOY

2 cans (15oz each) light red kidney beans
1 can seasoned black beans
2 cans rotel, mild
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1 quart tomato juice
1 medium onion, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, minced
Salt and pepper, to taste
In a large stockpot, combine all ingredients and cover with enough water to make a soup. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low and simmer chili for about 2 hours.
Proverbs 7:2 Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.
It’s almost apple harvest time and for this reason we have chosen Fried Apples as our recipe of the month!
These mouth-watering, succulent fried apples will leave you craving more, so make a double batch!
They are especially delicious poured over homemade biscuits! YUM, YUM!
5-6 medium to large apples, sweet and juicy variety
1 stick butter, not margarine
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
Peel, core and quarter apples; place into a 12″ skillet
Cut butter up on top of apples and pour on the white sugar
Add brown sugar and then turn on the heat
Bring apples to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently to prevent scorching
Once they start to boil, reduce heat to medium low and cook until apples are tender.
Pour into your favorite bowl and enjoy!
HINT: Make sure and save all the juice, you will see why at the end of this post!
“Larapin” is how my husband describes these fried apples. I have figured out that this means really, really good in a southern manner!
They are especially “larapin” when served over homemade biscuits! Remember I told you to save the juice?
His plate when I recently cooked fried apples for supper with lots of juice poured over the biscuits!
