Top 5 Benefits of Using Goat’s Milk Soap

29 Aug

Hand crafted soaps are on the rise in popularity. Consumers can pick from organic to gluten free soaps. But how do you know which one has the best ingredients for you? I have tried many hand crafted soaps but none have been as rewarding as Zum Bar’s goat milk soap. I believe what makes their soap so good is their base ingredient of goat’s milk. So I’ve decided to research the benefits of goat’s milk in soap and what I found out was amazing!

Zum Bar Soap

Naturally Ultra-Moisturizing

Goat’s milk contains the natural triglycerides, otherwise known as the “good fats”, which allows our skin to be naturally moisturized. Most soap companies artificially try to recreate those good fats but end up using a lot of chemicals in the process.

Reduces Wrinkles and Delays the Signs of Skin Aging

Goat’s milk contains high contents of lactic acid. Lactic acid breaks down and removes dead skin cells which allow for the growth of new skin cells to form on the surface of the skin. This creates the appearance of smoother and more youthful skin!

Effectively Treats Acne

The pH level in goat’s milk is very close to the level in our skin so it allows us to not overproduce oils in our skin that cause acne breakouts. Also goat’s milk has anti-bacterial properties that delay the growth of bacteria in our skin which in turn prevents the growth of pimples and zits.

Loaded with Essential Nutrients and Vitamins

Goat’s milk is loaded with all sorts of vitamins like vitamin D, C, B1, B6, B12, and E. All of those vitamins promote the growth of healthy hair, skin, and nails.

Reduces Skin Inflammation

Since the content of goat’s milk is high in fat, it acts as an anti-inflammatory for our skin.The creamy texture in goat’s milk soothes dry and damaged skin reducing any skin inflammation you may have.

 

How amazing is that? If you aren’t using a goat’s milk soap yet you are missing out!

The Power of the Bath

21 May

“Healing begins with an aromatic bath and daily massage.”
– Hippocrates

For centuries, hydrotherapy has been considered an important treatment for a wide range of ailments. Aromatic baths releases powerful scented oils through steam that can give relief from pain, sinus and skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema; they can also treat emotional imbalances, headache, fluid retention, stress, insomnia, muscle aches and circulatory problems.

Create your own private world. Use the power of the bath and create a space of solitude and complete relaxation. In the wonderful world of a comforting bath we can free the mind while we immerse the body in a haven of healing.

Path to the Perfect Bath

1. Prepare
Start the experience even before you submerge into the steaming, warm bath infused with powerful aromas. Allow your body to relax as the soothing sound of running water fills up the room. Play relaxing music and dim the lights.
2. Add Aroma
Add the essential oil, bath salt or gel of choice, or one that will achieve the results you’re seeking. As the steam from the hot water fills the air, your aromatherapy treatment begins.

3. Set the Mood
Decorate your surroundings with candles, flowers and other mood enhancing articles. As your bath is getting ready, prepare yourself physically and emotionally-your tempo before and after is part of the experience as well. Take your time.

4. Submerge
Slowly step into the hot water, allowing your body to adjust to the heat. Soak, relax, breathe. This is a YOU focused time. Let the steam, water and aroma take you away.

5. Emerge
Wrap yourself in a clean, soft towel or your favorite bathrobe. Allow your body to cool down before carefully moisturizing your entire body to complete the treatment.

Special Tips For the Ultimate Experience

A morning bath can make you feel revitalized. Use a stimulating essential oil such as rosemary or jasmine.

Don’t stay in the tub too long, as an ultra-long bath strains your circulation and hot water dissolves your skin’s natural lipids. There is a definite correlation between bath temperatures, duration of soak and the mood your bath leaves you in.

REFRESHING
77 degrees F to 86 degrees F – Duration 10 minutes

RELAXING
98 degrees F to 102 degrees F – Duration 15-20 minutes

THERAPEUTIC
102 degrees F to 104 degrees F – Duration 10-30 minutes. To treat a cold or induce sweating.
