Soap

If you answered YES to any or all  questions than I have the perfect soap for any YES answer!

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.

Meet Betty the Baby!

Posted by Dana

Friends meet Betty

IMG_1821

(sorry about the picture quality but its hard to take a pic while trying to hold a mama goat still so baby can nurse)

Betty meet our friends

Over the past several weeks our mama goats have added to our herd

Lucy had two

Belle had two

Old Girl had on one

And Scruffy, well she had two.

However, Scruffy is not being a very good mama to Betty.  Scruffy will not let Betty nurse and she butts at her when she gets close.

Betty was very weak and somewhat of a runt when she was born.  She wasn’t able to stand on her own for a couple of days.

I had to physically hold Betty so she could milk until she could stand on her own.

Good new though, Betty is able to stand and get milk for herself but Scruffy still doesn’t want her to nurse so now I have to hold Scruffy so Betty can nurse.

Change is good, Right?

Zechariah 3:4   And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment.

Jen and I have new homes!

Our property lines are adjacent and we are so excited about this!  Instead of having to drive to visit with each other we can now just walk across the farm.

Our boys can have more playtime together and Jen and I can have more cooking and baking time together.

This is a big change for both us though.

We had to put in several hours of hard labor.

Jen and her husband bought an existing house that needed to be renovated.  Many, many hours she, her husband and father spent painting, putting in new flooring, etc.

Now she has a beautiful home that I am sure will bring her many happy years of enjoyment.

However, my husband and I had to start from scratch.

We bought a 25 acre farm that had not been tended to for several years.

It was grown up cedar thicket with two very old dilapidated barns and one very dated mobile home.

Here’s one of the barns.  Told it was in bad shape.  We plan on reclaiming the wood from the barns for future use.

We bought the farm in 2010 and have spent many countless hours cleaning the place up so we could build our home here.

And here it is!  Our barn/home!  Oh yes we did!  We built a barn with living quarters in one side.  We are finally “on the farm” and couldn’t be happier!

And of course with the farm came animal.  We have goats and chickens and dogs.

We looking forward to making many great memories.
