Goat Milk Stuff Review and a Giveaway

Got milk?  How about goats' milk?    While I haven't yet brought myself to taste the goats' milk that my friend down the road has offered me fresh from her own goats, I have been using goats' milk soap for a couple of years now.  I recently discovered a large homeschooling family's home business which is making and selling goats' milk soap and other products.  The Jonas family began making their own goats' milk soap for their own family in order to help clear up a child's eczema problems.  It worked and others soon began asking for soap as well.  So much so that Papa Jonas quit his job and came home to make soap full time along with his wife and children.

Goat Milk Stuff has a large product selection with plain and scented soaps, laundry soaps, stick lotions, lip balms and much more.  I purchased the "Purity" soap for my little guys and myself and for the big guys "Musk Blend".  I actually told  one of my extreme eczema sufferers to use it on their hair as well and it got rid of the flakes!  This soap is creamy and oh-so-soft!  And it's pretty, too!

I also purchased the large laundry soap bar.  I grated it with a cheese grater and then mixed it with washing soda and borax.  This lasted for over 80 loads of laundry.  All natural ingredients, no harsh chemicals and no added scents.  Low sudsing as well for my front loading washing machine.

Another item I purchased was the Clean Cotton Lotion Stick.  It's like lip balm only for your skin!  It comes in a large tube that would fit great in your pocket or purse and is very easy to apply directly where you need it.  The Clean Cotton smelled fabulous, but was a little too scented for me.  The almost empty tube sits next to my computer, though, where I stop work and scrape out what remains to put on my dry, scaly dishpan hands.

How would you like to win three large bars of your own Goat Milk Stuff soap?  You can do just that by following these easy steps!

1.  Go to goatmilkstuff.com .  Look over the products and let me know what you would order in the comment section of my blog.

2.  Become a follower of my blog and let me know you did by leaving me a comment.  Or let me know that you are already a follower.

3.  Sign up for the Goat Milk Stuff newsletter on the goatmilkstuff.com website.  Leave me a comment letting me know you signed up!

4.  Become a Facebook fan of Goat Milk Stuff!  Click the link found in the lower left hand corner of their website at goatmilkstuff.com.  Leave me a comment letting me know you fanned them.

5.  Follow PJ Jonas' blog at goatmilksoapers.com.  Again, let me know by leaving a comment on my blog.

Wow!!  You get five chances to win three large bars of some fabulous goats' milk soap!  Hope to hear from lots of you.  This soap really is great and did I mention that it is very pretty as well!  So what's your favorite soap?

I have been "eyeing" their things for a while . We would love to order the powdered laundry soap. We already use goats milk soap for my daughters excema and we make our own detergent..but we haven't used goats milk soap in our detergent.

Anita, it's so good to see you back online! This is a totally new idea to me, but I have a weak spot for anything with essential oils like peppermint or rosemary. I love having a different soap for each season - I'm at the end of my summery scent, so this is a perfect time to try something new. I'm also sending this site to my niece whose son suffers terribly with skin irritations. I'm sure it will help him. Thanks Anita!

I went to their website and wow the selections they have look wonderful. I would probably get the laundry soap and the coconut or vanilla lavender scent soaps. I have got to get some because my eczema is acting up. Relieve is what I need LOL. Thanks for posting! We are enjoying these cooler temps, this Texas heat has been just about the same this year as you all have experienced. HOT!!!! So thankful for the cooler temps.

I am so glad that you commented on my blog and reminded me about this. I gave it a quick glance before but wouldn't have thought much of it. When I read through and saw the word "excema" I knew I had to read more! Our daughter suffers from severe excema and allergies and I had never heard that goat's milk products could be helpful. Thank you!

As for my favourite picks from their site, I would have to go with the bath bombs for me and the black cherry or lavender vanilla soaps for my kids.

I have also "followed" your blog. Thanks again!

I was really impressed with the variety of products on the Goat Milk Stuff website. I was at first drawn to the lip balms... my lips have been irritated this summer. I went to the dermatologist a few months ago & he froze a large area that he said was pre-cancerous. OUCH! Lately, my lips have been itchy and I am wondering if I am allergic to the Burt's Bees lip balm I'd been using. I bought it trying to use something natural to prevent them being irritated. I have been "addicted" to lip balms for a long time; can't stand that dry lip feeling.
I also thought the Bug Off soap sounded really neat. Great to have the guys shower with before they spend the day doing yard work or go on campouts.
And finally... because I gotta stop myself... I would be interested in the Organic Castile soap for Baby T. :)

Did we need to do all 5 things you listed to qualify for the giveaway?

Thanks for introducing us to the Goat Milk Stuff :)
