Oatmeal Spice with Comfrey and Oatmeal Lemongrass soap

There’s a crispness in the air and mornings are cool and dark again. Fall conjures up thoughts of warm tea and hot cocoa; bowls of steaming oatmeal, and long, soothing soaks in a full tub.  Our latest additions to the Raggedy Hen Farm shop are all about seasonal comfort and we’ve been so excited to share them with you!

We have two new thick bars of soap chock full of our usual organic, natural and nourishing ingredients:

  • Oatmeal Lemongrass–This goats milk soap is made with plenty of Coconut oil and Olive oil and we’ve included organic Cocoa butter and beeswax from our own bees.  Organic Vanilla powder, organic oats, and Lemongrass essential oil all come together to make a subtly-scented and oh-so-good-for-your-skin bar of natural soap.
  • Oatmeal Spice with Comfrey–We got a little carried away with visions of warm cookies and spicy tea while creating this soap.  We started with a big pitcher of comfrey tea–made from organic comfrey we harvested from our garden.  Coconut oil, Olive oil, Cocoa butter and beeswax from our bees provided a wonderful canvass for spicy additions like peppermint, clove and lemon essential oils, and organic cinnamon, ginger and vanilla.  We tossed in some poppy seeds for exfoliation and organic oats for healing softness and what we have is the perfect soap for the cold months ahead!

We have long depended on the muscle-soothing powers of Epsom salt for our own aging muscles and are always on the hunt for bath salts that are not filled with harmful detergents, chemicals or dyes.  It can also be tough to find bath salts that are not overwhelmingly scented.  We decided to create the very soaking salts we craved!  These Lavender Patchouli bath salts are made with the simplest ingredients: Epsom and Sea Salts, Sodium Bicarbonate (baking soda), and Vitamin E Oil for extra healing.  We add organic lavender and patchouli (yes, the actual powdered leaves of both plants) and just the right combination of organic lavender and patchouli essential oils.  This makes for a crisp, rejuvenating-scented bath and soft, clean skin. It even leaves the bathroom smelling fresh and relaxing too!

You can find these new seasonal offerings in our Raggedy Hen Farm shop (along with some other comforts and treats.) They may be just what your weary self is craving after a busy, bustly Summer!
