Rosemary Mint Goat Milk Soap Spotlight

Today I am spotlighting my rosemary mint goat milk soap.

Rosemary is not for everyone. If you love it, you normally seek it! I am one that likes it, especially in the summer months. If you have never had a chance to experience the scent of rosemary essential oil, I can describe it as fresh, strong, pine like, yet sweet.

Aromatherapists report that rosemary essential oil is helpful for re-energizing (due to mental fatigue or depression). Rosemary essential oil is used in soap products to help remove excess oil secretions in the hair, and assists with skin blemishes and dandruff. It also has some antibacterial properties.

This soap contains a touch of peppermint, along with finely ground rosemary leaves. Peppermint is said to have some energizing benefits as well.

I want to remind everyone, when considering the use of essential oils (especially in their natural oil state) always pay attention to your allergies or special health concerns (such as pregnancy, epilepsy, etc..). Be safe and be aware. There are a lot of good sites on the Internet that explain the precautions, such as Aromatherapy.Suite101.com .

Have a good evening!

This sounds like a soap I would love and also a 'manly' type of soap! I will be ordering some in the future....

Sounds lovely!

Interesting information, Mary. This fragrance sounds warm and inviting.

I'm enjoying my soaps! They smell so wonderful! Thank you for very prompt service.

Mary said...

I am glad you are happy with your soaps!

I try to do a 1 day turnaround. Receive an order one evening, package it the next day, then out the door it goes.

Thank you for the comments!

Hey Mary,
I think this soap sounds like a winner! I forget what kind of soap you sent me a few weeks ago, but love it!! I used to use shampoo w/rosemary and it was the best. I'm anxious to place an order with you... most likely within the next couple of months. I thought I'd get some soaps for gifts... but if I don't wait until closer to those timeframes, I'm afraid I'll have all of it opened and none to give away. LOL

Lynnanne, I received an email yesterday asking if I would carry shampoo bars. A rosemary shampoo bar might just be the ticket! It would certainly seem to help with dandruff, oil, or scalp problems.

Lynnanne said...

I've never used a "shampoo bar," might be interesting. :) The rosemary and other herbs in it seemed to make the scalp tingle. It was wonderful! Aura, I believe, was the name of the shampoo.

Mary @ Annie's Goat Hill said...

I remember a shampoo called Aura, I believe, and I may have tried it.

I am definitely going to start a line of shampoo bars. I will include a rosemary. I love my own products and a shampoo bar is something that just may keep me from buying one more product from the department store!

And when I get the rosemary shampoo bar made, I will send you a sample.

I forgot to answer you on a question earlier, the soap bar that I sent to you was the Earthy Vanilla. Vanilla turns to the tan/brown color in the soap, unless extra additives are added to stop the color. I like the tan/brown in some of the soaps. I do not try to make it stop.

I like the brown color... just another unique thing about it. Isn't it funny that natural becomes the unique? I can't say enough how much I like that soap!! Earthy vanilla... and can't wait to try a shampoo bar! Thanks,
