This is our wonderful Little Blue River Goat’s Milk Lotion. It all started with an extra pitcher of goat milk in the frig. Well, maybe I could make some hand lotion. Hmm…….I tried this and I tried that and nothing turned out to be lotion. The goat milk was gone but the idea stayed. The library helped a bit and a shopping trip to a nearby city with a huge bookstore helped even more.
The first batch was pretty good. But it could be better. Yes it could. And it just kept getting better. You’ll find the combination of oils* we finely decided on to be a very nice one. Your skin feels soft, smooth and silky after using just a small amount of Little Blue River Goat Milk Lotion.
Our lotion holds moisture to your skin which, in turn, reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Goat milk, other ingredients and Organic Shea Butter* combine to heal, sooth irritated, inflamed or sunburned skin.
Rough hands or rough days enjoy Little Blue River Goat Milk Lotion. We love it, and we hope you do too!

Your feet are the most used part of your body and maybe the least cared for. Relax and sooth the only two feet you’ll ever have with our Feet Treat. It’s fabulous for sore tired limbs. In just a couple of minutes, your feet will feel as good as new. Ingredients include Certified Organic Unrefined Vitellaria Nilotica (Shea Butter), Abyssinian Oil, Meadowfoam Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Sambucus Nigra Fruit Extract, Dimethicone, Isopropyl Myristate, Cyclomethicone, and Tea Tree, Lavender and Peppermint Essential oils.
Our Feet Treat was originally developed to sooth tired, screaming, pain-filled feet. But people soon began telling us that it was equally wonderful for their elbows, hands and even as a facial night cream. The base for our Feet Treat is organic, unrefined shea butter from a women’s cooperative in Africa. Women have traditionally been engaged in the backbreaking work of shea butter production, but have been paid almost nothing for their labor. Through the efforts of the United Nations, cooperatives have been formed and now those women are able to earn enough money to clothe, feed and send their children to school. Because we pay fair market value for their product we are helping them earn a respectable wage. Each time we purchase shea butter from the cooperative we are linking hands with sisters from another part of the world.
Why use unrefined, organic shea butter? Because refined shea has had the majority of its effective agents removed and its healing values significantly removed. Unrefined shea butter has been used to help heal burns, sores, scars, dermatitis, psoriasis and stretch marks. It contains vitamins A and E and cinnamic acid, a substance that protects the skin from harmful UV rays.
To compliment both the healing qualities of the unrefined shea butter and its aroma, we have added three essential oils to our Feet Treat. Lavender essential oil removes nervous tension, relieves pain, disinfects skin and enhances blood circulation. Tea Tree Oil is a natural agent to relieve acne, sunburn, athletes’ foot, insect bites, rashes, and other minor wounds and irritations. In Peppermint Oil, the presence of cilium antagonism aids in removing pain and the menthol gives the skin a cooling effect; peppermint nourishes dull skin and improves oily skin.
So … if your feet have been keeping a couple of preschoolers out of trouble all day, or if they’ve been out shopping, shopping, shopping … take a few minutes to give them a bit of the attention they are screaming for and massage them with some Little Blue River Intensive Healing Cream, put on some soft cotton socks, and finish your day in comfort!
As an added suggestion (We moms never quit telling you what to do, do we?): Snatch a few minutes from your busy schedule and rest your feet in a warm foot bath. Even better, add Epsom salts and a few drops of Lavender or Tea Tree or Peppermint Essential Oil (or all three) to that foot bath. Close your eyes and relax for fifteen minutes. Dry your feet with a fluffy cotton towel and then massage those tootsies with our Intensive Healing Cream. You are now ready for whatever comes your way. Gluten Free. 2 oz.
We call it “scrub” but don’t think of scrubbing you the way Mr. Clean scrubs the oven. this is gentle enough to use on your face and it’s absolutely the greatest for an instant manicure. It takes only 60 seconds to gently polish away the unnecessary cuticle from your fingertips and the useless cells from your hands. Target other rough spots too – your elbows, knees and feet or all over your entire body. You can use it as little as once a week, although our scrub is gentle enough to use as often as you desire.
Ingredients include: sea salt, shea butter, sweet almond oil, apricot kernel oil, grape seed oil, jojoba, vitamin E oil, lemon essential oil, grapefruit essence oil, orange essence oil and essential rosemary oil.
Allow only a minute from your busy schedule and your hands will feel as though you’ve allowed an hour for a manicure. Make sure your hands are dry and then place about ½ teaspoon of our Sugar Scrub in the palm of one hand. Massage your hands a few seconds until the Scrub is creamy and then massage your whole hands for about 45 seconds, paying special attention to the cuticle area. Then rinse your hands under slightly warm water until all the grains of sugar are down the drain-along with all those old dead cells you don’t want hanging around. Now pat your hands dry. Don’t wipe or you’ll wipe away the conditioning oils. Next, massage the oils that are left on your hands into your skin. You’ll be amazed! Sugar Scrub is also great for elbows, knees, heels, feet, even your whole body just before you shower. Gluten Free.
Ingredients include turbinado (organic brown sugar), shea butter, apricot kernel oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba, vitamin E, fragrance. 4 oz
