I just tried out this goat milk lotion and soap and had to share it with you! If you've never tried these types of natural products before, you need to check them out! Plus these would make great gift ideas for anyone interested in natural health!
When my oldest son was first diagnosed with food allergies, he couldn't eat hardly anything! His milk and soy allergies meant that he couldn't eat cheese, yogurt, pudding, etc. As I was doing a little research, I found out the protein found in goat milk is different from that found in regular milk and that most kids who can't do regular dairy can tolerate goat milk products. Goat Milk yogurt was the first yogurt he was able to eat and I was so grateful to have found that alternative. Since then, I've been interested in the benefits of goat milk. While there are tons of regular lotions on the market, goat milk lotion and soap make a unique gift idea and are great for your skin!This goat milk lotion comes from Bates Family Farm. The combination of olive oil, goat milk and shea butter create an extra moisturizing lotion that doesn't feel greasy. They offer 15-20 different scents, some of which are made with essential oils which you know I love. This lavender lotion smells heavenly! I like to use this on my hands at bed time. When winter rolls around, my hands get really dry and cracked. I love that it sinks right in and works magic on my hands while I lay around and watch Real Housewives…I also picked up this lotion, in Phoenix scent, for my son. He still suffers from eczema and I thought he would prefer this manly scented lotion over something floral. But they also offer unscented products if that's what you are looking for. The lotions also come in 3 different sizes. I grabbed the 2 oz. size so I could try a few different scents. These also would make a great stocking stuffer or work well in a gift basket.I also decided to grab a goat milk soap to try out. The recipe uses old-fashioned fat and lye. The lye is what cleans the skin while the coconut oil and fats moisturize it. These products are perfect for people with sensitive skin and allergies due to the natural nature of the ingredients. The cherry vanilla scent is crazy amazing! My kids freaked out when it arrived and couldn't wait to start using it! The formula creates a lot of lather and is also super moisturizing. The goat milk lotion and soap is made by a family in Southwest Virginia and uses goat milk from their own goats to create these awesome products. Bates Family Farm also offer pre-made gift baskets and body creams (that are a thicker, condensed version of the goat milk lotion). I'm a little obsessed and know I'll be ordering again. I just saw that they make that cherry vanilla scent in a lotion as well… SO good! I love to give unique gifts at the holidays and these highly moisturizing lotions and soaps are a perfect gift idea!
