How We Began...
I had never even thought about making soap. It all started when my husband talked me into getting a few milk goats as a hobby. He really had to twist my arm.
I had been in sales all my adult life so naturally, I was intrigued when my pastor's wife mentioned making goat milk soaps. Wondering what was so special about soap made from goat's milk, I began to do some research online. The information was abundant. There were tons of vitamins in goat's milk and a long list of benefits for your skin. Apparently, this stuff was really good for your digestive system as well. Hmmm, would I want to drink it? I tried it and discovered that "fresh from the farm" goat milk is delicious!
After several months of research, watching videos and scoping out recipes, I decided to put one to the test. I've always been a bath person. To me, there's nothing more relaxing than a nice long hot bath after a stressful day. So, the anticipation of taking my bath to the next level motivated me. I'll never forget the feel of the soap's silky thick creamy lather as I washed up that first soap pot. I was thrilled that I had created those bubbles!!
And the bath? Oh, my goodness!! I was immediately hooked on this soap. I posted a few pictures on my social networks eventually and passed out some samples here and there. I talked about the soap a lot! It's just grown from there and I'm so blessed and grateful to have a home-based business doing something I love. It's hard work but the rewards of having a product that people enjoy making it so worth the long hours of standing over a soap pot.
Our company name originated from the following Bible verse: "He rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven." (Psalms 78:24)
