Jesalynn, a long-time friend, began making goat milk soap several years ago. Jesalynn's soaps found loyal customers at farmer's markets. The cream and proteins in the goat milk has a moisturizing affect on dry itchy skin.
Recently, Jesalynn began to blog at Homemaid Expressions and asked if I'd be interested in hosting a giveaway. I've had the opportunity to try several of Jesalynn's products in the past year and am eager to share them with you!
Jesalynn makes soaps in many different fragrances. They all smell wonderful and it is almost impossible to choose. I usually lean toward lemon grass, mint, and patchouli for my husband's sake! Not that he wouldn't use lavender scented soap, but he prefers the woodsy scent of patchouli.
One of Jesalynn's newest soaps is chamomile baby soap. My children have had numerous skin issues and I avoid most soaps. This soap is super mild, lathers well, and appears to be working well for them.
I was surprised how much I liked the goat milk shampoo bar.While it doesn't lather up as much as bottled shampoo, using the wet bar on wet hair did lather decently and felt squeaky clean. I like the convenience of having only one bar in the shower for soap or shampoo. I also tried Jesalynn's suggestion of a lemon honey hair rinse. Yummy!
Just in time for winter, Jesalynn is now making lip balm. Ed describes the lip balm as "kissable". Works for me!
I wasn't sure how to use the lotion candle at first but now I'm hooked. I like to light it before I jump in the shower. The fragrance fills the bathroom and after blowing out the candle, the oils are the perfect body temperature for a lotion. The skin-safe soy wax and oils absorb well and are non-greasy. Ahhh...luxury.
One of you has the chance to try a variety of Jesalynn's products. Jesalynn is giving away a generous gift basket, which contains a bar of goat milk soap, goat milk shampoo bar, a lotion candle, lip balm, and a pack of three guest soaps. The basket can be completely customized with your choice of fragrances.
