for love of goat milk soap

4

Out of Tennessee comes a beautifully photographed story about the Little Seed Farm and their love and struggle to achieve some of the finest, purest, and most authentic goat milk soap known to (wo)man.

Most soaps are made with water and palm kernel oil (a large factor in deforestation). Little Seed Farm steers clear of these ingredients and only includes milk, lye and organic olive, coconut essential oils imported from all of the world — such as vanilla from India or vetiver from Indonesia.

The aromas in the soap studio are present but not assaulting. The soap has an earthy base so, when combined with certain oils, it doesn’t always come out as planned. Eileen and James Ray have tested and approved all of their varieties. Working with natural essential oils can pose a challenge, as these change at different temperatures (whereas fragrance oils keep their scent profile). For example, the vanilla smells more like a sugar cookie than vanilla you find in other products.

“Collaborations are a good way to for us to get to know other local business owners,” Eileen says. “We are isolated out here, so it is nice to interact with other small businesses,” James echoes.
