Moeggenborg Sugar Bush is run by Mary and her family "in the country" in Michigan, offering a variety of unique gifts. Together they make soap (of course), candles, and personalized Christmas stockings. If you like treats, they also make fudge, dip mixes, and baked goods.
Moeggenborg Sugar Bush is a farm family who enjoys working together to make quality products that reflect a simpler time. The term “sugar bush” is because they're an operating sugar bush. This means they tap trees and boil sap during late winter. I have a couple big maple trees that we tap as well, and I can say this - fresh syrup beats the store stuff.
There are a variety of different soaps - some that are easy on the skin, and others that are more exfoliating. Goat's milk is wonderful for soap and you'll find it's a common base ingredient. It's soothing to the skin and adds to a good lather. Lots of scents and choices!
Pictured above is the lavender soap, a tranquil combination of fresh herbs and cool camphor with top notes of Italian bergamot, eucalyptus leaves, citrus zest, and French lavender. Cool, huh? Almost looks like slices of purple cake! Don't eat it though. It smells great and my wife likes to use the bar at the sink before going to bed with the calming senses.
This particular soap is made with real goat milk and lavender, as well as the following:
- distilled water
- sodium hydroxide
- sweet almond castor
- cocoa butter
- fragrance oil
I also have the natural oatmeal soap, shown below, which is formulated especially for folks with sensitive skin like myself. It's an unscented, all-natural soap. No colorants or fragrance oil, so it's pretty safe.
You can get the most out of your handmade soap by treating it with care. Don't leave it sitting in water, and instead place it in a dish or on a ledge. Even just sitting on the sink works. Keeping it fresh and allowing it to let water roll away will help the lifespan.
So who wants some soap?! Moeggenborg Sugar Bush is graciously offering two (2) bars of goat milk soap - one lavender and one natural oatmeal - to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.
