Shalom! We have been searching for what we can do to supplement the lack of offerings we are receiving as well as be able to help the widows, the fatherless, and the needy. One of the latest ideas is soap making. We found a company in San Jose that sells some of the ingredients and we then we add some from the farm. Tammy has researched much online and we are using some of what we grow as ingredients in some of the different types of soaps.
These soaps not only save us money but also can be used to serve as a way to bless others.
Another idea is that for every bar of soap we sell we can give one away to a local family. The skin is the largest organ in the body and pharmaceutical produced soaps have many chemicals that we can not even mention including triclosan, a poison in some antibacterial soaps.
“Sheep milk soap is rich with butter fat and proteins that nourish the skin, as well as almost
double the vitamins and minerals of other milk soaps. In sheep’s milk, the milk and cream do not separate, so that soap made from sheep milk contains all of the rich, moisturizing properties of the milk and cream combined. Sheep milk soap also contains lactic acid that acts as a natural, gentle exfoliant, leaving skin soft and glowing, feeling revitalized. It is particularly soothing for those with dry or sensitive skin.”
There are many tutorials on YouTube depending on the method that will be used.
We are using the hot process method since we can use and sell them quicker.
Drying time is the biggest difference.
“Like goat milk, sheep’s milk is naturally more nutritious and healthy than cow’s milk—but even better, for it contains significantly higher levels of protein, calcium, Vitamins A, B, D,and E, zinc, magnesium, and phosphorous than goat’s milk. Although sheep milk is higher in fat than cow or goat milk, these are mainly heart healthy unsaturated fats that have no negative impact on cholesterol. Sheep’s milk also contains the highest concentration of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) found in any type of milk. CLA is known to have cancer-fighting properties.”
All of our soaps have either sheep’s milk or cow’s milk. That increases the quality and very few people use sheep milk because of how expensive it is. It adds moisturizers and minerals to our skin. All soaps moisturizing bars come between 3.5 to 4 oz. Sheep’s milk costs around $5 a pint, and the world’s most expensive cheese comes from sheep’s milk.
Along with essential oils we are trying to use ingredients we have on the farm, like Aloe Vera, Turmeric, Lemon, Rosemary, Coconut, etc. Some of the essential oils are Lemongrass, Lavender, Peppermint… also Shea Butter in some of them. Soon we will try to add cocoa and coffee grown here and locally. We are also going to include some Loofah Sponge for a scrubby accent also grown locally. No artificial colors or scents are used also.

“Milk along with moisturizing shea butter, aloe, coconut and olive oils are especially
soothing for cracked and sore diabetic feet, the sensitive skin of chemotherapy patients
and the delicate skin of babies and the elderly. Also they could help people with atopic eczema as well as adults suffering from psoriasis and other skin diseases as well as
acne, allergies and other skin conditions.”

“And you shall hear, O Yisra’el, and shall guard to do, that it might be well with you, and that you increase greatly as Elohim of your fathers has spoken to you, in a land flowing with milk and honey. “Hear, O Yisra’el: YHWH our Elohim, YHWH is one! “And you shall love YHWH your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your being, and with all your might. “And these Words which I am commanding you today shall be in your heart, and you shall impress them upon your children, and shall speak of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up, and shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. “And you shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”
