Goat milk soap benefits any skin care regimen. If you have dry or sensitive skin, then goat milk soap merits a try. We have multiple customers who swear by it – including some that had been prescribed steroids for persistent eczema issues!

Great Goat Soap Benefits

Goat milk soap is a true wonder of the skincare world. Not only is it made from all-natural, non-toxic ingredients, but it’s also packed with essential vitamins and minerals that are essential for healthy, radiant skin. Plus, it’s gentle enough for sensitive skin and even babies!

The Wonders of Goat Milk

One of the best things about goat milk soap is that it’s made with real goat milk, which is packed with vitamins A, B, C, and D, as well as minerals like calcium, potassium, and magnesium. These nutrients work together to nourish and hydrate the skin, leaving it feeling soft, smooth, and refreshed. And because goat milk is naturally high in lactic acid, it also helps to gently exfoliate dead skin cells, leaving your skin looking brighter and more youthful.

All Natural

But perhaps the most amazing thing about goat milk soap is that it’s made with all-natural, non-toxic ingredients that are gentle on the skin and the environment. So, not only will you be able to pamper your skin, but you can feel good about using a product that’s not only good for you but also good for the planet. Plus, let’s be real, who doesn’t want to be able to say “I bathe with milk from a goat”, it’s just fun to say!

Essential Oils On Sensitive Skin

There are several essential oils that can be irritating or sensitizing to some people with sensitive skin. These include:

  1. Peppermint: This essential oil can be very refreshing and invigorating, but it can also be irritating to the skin and mucous membranes.

  2. Lemon: Lemon essential oil is often used in skin care products due to its astringent and toning properties, but it can also be irritating to sensitive skin.

  3. Clove: Clove essential oil is a strong irritant and can be sensitizing to some people.

  4. Cinnamon: Cinnamon essential oil is very potent and can cause irritation and sensitivity in some people.

  5. Eucalyptus: Eucalyptus essential oil is often used to help clear respiratory congestion, but it can be irritating to sensitive skin.

It is always a good idea to do a patch test before using any new essential oil, especially if you have sensitive skin. This involves applying a small amount of the essential oil to a small patch of skin and observing the area for any reactions or irritation. If you experience any redness, itching, or other symptoms, it is best to avoid using the essential oil.

Using Clove essential Oil In Goat Milk Soap

Clove oil adds many benefits to the soap as well and it smells fantastic! With a dark and mysterious spiciness to it, clove oil brings forth a dreamy sense of wonder, leaving you wide awake, and ready for adventures to new horizons.


Clove oil enjoys a rich history in Ayurvedic medicine, where it has been used not only in cuisine, but also as a healing salve for reducing rash and preventing acne. 

Combining the PH balancing and exfoliating qualities of goat milk with the healing qualities of clove oil marries the benefits of each, and leaves skin feeling beautiful and truly loved.

Essential Oils Used In Our Soaps

Common scents we typically use in our soaps include peppermint, lavender, and bergamot. But lately we have tried some new and exotic essential oils as well. As always, we only use naturally processed essential oils as scents in our bars, never chemical fragrances. 

Essential Oils Used In Grateful Goat Soaps

Although we strive for essential oils scents that remind us of the pacific northwest, like cedarwood, peppermint, lavender, and rosemary, we also like more exotic oils as well for a change of pace. Clove and bergamot, patchouli, and sandalwood, as well as lemongrass invoke exotic and intriguing charms as well. 

We are always open to ideas and receptive to suggestions too!

With each scent, endless variations in hopefully harmonious combinations allow for further creative journeys too. One of my personal favorites is rosemary and lemongrass. It spreads peace and serenity and feels like lying in a hammock on a warm summer’s day next to a garden full of blooms and butterflies. Perhaps a bumblebee or two, but with zero intention of stinging anything.

Unique Ingredients For Goat Soaps

Sometimes we also try out unusual ingredients as well. We have made a turmeric soap as well as a green algae soup, both a quest for discovering new colors, adding healthful properties for skin care, and maybe even adding a touch of scent as well.
