Soapy Sheep Delight!


Shalom! We have been searching for what we can do to supplement the lack of offerings we are receiving and 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 add some from the  Hebrew farm. Tammy has researched much online and we are using some of what we grow as ingredients in some of them.

These soaps not only save us money but also could serve as a way to bless others. Another idea is that for every 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 you will use. We are using hot process since we can use and sell 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 milk or cow's milk. That increases the quality and few use sheep milk which is a very expensive ingredient. 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 them. You can also order your own combination as our operation is small.

Along with essential oils we are trying to use ingredients we have on the farm, like, Aloe Vera, Turmeric, Lemon, Rosemary, Coconut. 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.

 Luxurious rich Sheep 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.

Any combinations would be upon availability of ingredients and demand of soaps. May our lives be clean inside and out. Cup Cakes are for our use only and some look tasty... They also make lots of bubbly suds :)

Deu 6:3-6  “And you shall hear, O Yisra’ĕl, and shall guard to do, that it might be well with you, and that you increase greatly as יהוה Elohim of your fathers has spoken to you, in a land flowing with milk and honey. “Hear, O Yisra’ĕl: יהוה our Elohim, יהוה is one! “And you shall love יהוה 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.
