Forgotten garden has got a lot going on! A blend of time honored medicinal herbal teas and essential oils, for not only scent but your skin as well. The herb blend makes me think of a cottage herb garden, English tea, and the highlands all rolled into one. It has stinging nettle powder, Scottish heather, bergamot, thyme, lavender, chamomile, mint, and rosemary. It also has a blend of essential oils that include primarily bergamot, rosemary, and oregano.
Raw Goats Milk Benefits

4 - 5 oz bar
bar size and shipping
As a family business, we have found that restricting our shipping to one day a week helps us be balanced and reliable. You can expect your order to be shipped by the Monday after you place it. Thank you for understanding!
We prefer to ship our soap in a box to make sure that it gets to you safely! Our soap is also fairly heavy. Because of these things, shipping can often seem a little higher than expected. We will do everything we can to ship as cost effectively as possible and refund any shipping overages.
We hand cut our soap and try for 4.5 oz but they usually range from 4-5 oz. We have several customers who have mentioned that they prefer to cut the bars in half so they last longer and scents can be switched sooner!
All natural and handmade soaps have better lifespan if left out of the shower or anywhere they may be sitting in water. We suggest using a draining soap dish or anything that allows the bar to fully dry out in between uses.
Our soaps are scented entirely by pure essential oils and may smell differently, or not as strong as the synthetic types most people are accustomed to smelling. Don't get us wrong! Many of the essential oils have very strong scents and we use plenty of them, they just don't smell like fragrance oils. Just think, the only scent you will be getting on you with our soap is one that is actually good for your body and mind. We also work in small batches and try new things occasionally, so the look or color will vary from batch to batch.
why coffee exfoliant
A lot of our soaps use coffee as the exfoliant. We chose to do this for a few reasons... Using recycled coffee from a local coffee shop is basically the smartest possible option when it comes to sustainability and conservation! But a main reason is that coffee is proven to have amazing benefits for your skin and we are using something that would otherwise be wasted. It is recycling at its best in our opinion.
