Lemongrass Poppyseed Goat Milk Soap

I have some blogging and comments to catch up on!

First, I thought I would showcase my lemongrass poppyseed goat milk soap.

Lemongrass is not extracted from lemons, but it has a very lemony scent, dark yellow to amber in color. Lemongrass is a grass, the essential oil is extracted from the leaves of the grass.

I have a few customers that regularly ask for lemongrass soap. It was also one of my original soaps, before the addition of goat milk. These particular customers are younger, with oily skin. If you have a friend or family member that loves the scent of lemons, or one that fights oily skin, this could be their soap!

The poppyseed provides gentle exfoliation.

Today's soap is in the mold. I make soap in loaves, cutting the loaf into bars approximately 24 hours later. Todays soap (like the lemongrass poppyseed) is also an all natural soap, no colorants, scented with tangerine, sweet orange, grapefruit, and a touch of lavender essential oils. It smells clean to me!

One of my customers ordered up all of the smaller sized bars of unscented goat milk soap today. So, unscented goat milk soap has been removed from the discount section on the website. There are full sized bars remaining, just no discounted smaller bars.

That is it for the shop talk today!

I need to catch up on comments and questions next.

Having a beautiful day too? I hope so!

The name of the soap sounds like a tea cake I like! I never even thought about the exfoliating properties of poppy seeds. I wonder how celery seeds would do in a soap? Just asking, I love celery seeds in herb bread....

I almost ordered the Lemongrass Poppyseed but I can already hear Larry cussing at the seeds on the bottom of the shower. Men. They are so pissy about stuff like that sometimes. said...

Goat's Milk soap is so wonderful! and it's Scented Soap to boot! I love lavender, lemongrass, and really enjoy reading about how you make your products!
