Meghan Garrison,

Owner of HomeMaker Farms

All of our soaps (unless specified) are made with goat’s milk and

are created from the finest quality of oils, essential oils, fragrance

oils and local ingredients. The goat’s milk that we use comes fresh

from an old-time friend who has a goat farm in West Point,

Indiana. The beeswax used in some of the recipes comes from my

bee mentor in Mulberry, Indiana and the honey used comes from

our very own bee hive on our farm in Lafayette, Indiana. I enjoy

going back to the basics and using natural colorants and additives

when making the soaps so that I know I am working with the

simplest ingredients. I use mainly clays and powdered forms of

vegetables, bee pollen, charcoal, cocoa, plant roots and titanium

dioxide when creating the designs of my soaps. For decorative and

exfoliant properties I use poppy seeds, coffee grounds, orange peels, lemon peels, oats, dried

flowers and cranberry seeds. I also stick to using plant-based oils and butters which include:

olive oil, coconut oil, sweet almond oil, rice bran oil, castor oil, canola oil, avocado oil, hemp

oil, grapeseed oil, apricot kernel, oil, cocoa butter, mango butter, and shea butter (just to

name a few). The oils and essential oils used in the soaps come from Jedward International,

INC - a US Company that offers Fair Trade, Friend of the Sea, and USDA Organic; and Bramble

Berry – a well-respected and high-quality soaping supply company.

I decided to begin making my own soap because as a mother of 4 children we go

through a lot of soap! I also wanted to use a product that would not 

only clean my hands, but

condition them as well. I work outside in my large garden hand pulling the weeds, keeping up

with the landscaping, taking care of the chickens, and doing whatever yardwork needs to be

done. My hands deserve a treat for working so hard! Another reason to pay attention to what I

used for washing my hands was because I want my kids to remember their mom having

strong, but soft hands. The goat’s milk soap that I have created gives me exactly what I was

looking for. Another benefit from my handcrafted soaps is the wonderful aroma that comes

from the essential and fragrance oils used in the soaps.

Ours hands are what we wash the most and what we use to hold our most precious

blessings. Treat yourself to a product that will make your hands feel great!

Blessings,

Meghan Garrison
