In June, my whole farm smells like honeysuckle.  By July, the goats have eaten every bit of it and moved on to the blackberries!  Every time I smell this soap, I am reminded of late spring days and warmer nights.

All my soaps are made with an old-fashioned lye soap recipe (just like great-grandma used to make), but I replace some of the water in the recipe with milk from goats raised on my farm in western Kentucky. Goat milk gives the soap a neutral pH level, so it won't dry out your skin.  The remaining ingredients are a yummy list of oils and butters - coconut, cocoa, shea, and so on.  Almost good enough to eat! (Please don't....really)
