Feed your skin
Hannibal resident Lisa Murphy was unaware of how much milk her two new dairy goats would produce after purchasing them in 2007. She found herself with quite a surplus, and a friend suggested that she make soap with it. What started as a hobby making soap for her family and friends soon became Sweet Spirits Farm Handmade Goat’s Milk Soap.
Lisa’s soap is made with fresh whole goat’s milk, lard, coconut oil, essential oils, and herbs and flowers in some recipes. Goat’s milk contains more than 50 nutrients that help nourish and revitalize skin.
Lisa says the soap “is basically feeding your skin,” and she even does her laundry with it. The soaps come in a wide variety of scents; lavender is a favorite for Lisa. She also produces seasonal scents including grapefruit and lime for summer and frankincense and myrrh for Christmas.
“It’s whatever I think of at the time,” Lisa says. “I’m always trying something new.”
