About Denise

I'm a crazy goat lady who got into making my own soap with goat milk, found MMS to order supplies, and now I get to combine my love of creating skin care products with a job to pay the feed bill.

Our Cherry Taffy Fragrance Oil is a trip down Memory Lane! Do you know those candy stores with a taffy pulling machine in the window? The ones where you walk through the door into a shop filled with captivating aromas? Fill your shopping basket with taffy, rock candy, gum, lollipops, […]

Wheat Germ Oil is a marvelous oil for skin care. I’ve trotted it out in lotion, salve, and lip balm. Those products have all turned out quite nicely, so I decided to give Wheat Germ Oil a go in a soap. It’ll be a few weeks before I can test […]

Wheat Germ Oil Soap


Yesterday I tried crafting an oil free lotion. I browsed our catalog and found all the ingredients that could qualify as oil free and created a formula. Unfortunately, I overdid it on the emulsifying ingredients, so the mixture failed to properly emulsify. Today I’m backing off the emulsifying ingredients and […]
