Seasonal soaps

beekman 1802

I've heard of seasonal eating -- but seasonal body care? Always on the lookout for yummy bath and body care (being Delicious Living's beauty editor and all), I was intrigued to find out about a new company called Beekman 1802. Each totally natural soap is made from the milk of goats raised on this historic farm in upstate New York. It seems that Beekman's philosophy has always been cool: The prim white manor was a stop on the underground railroad, and these days it's a working organic goat and vegetable farm. The soaps are elegant, gentle, and make super presents. Here's the most interesting part: Each of the company's scented soaps are developed according to what's in bloom during that particular month. Think vanilla, ginger, and fir for December; juniper berry and snow for January; and cinnamon and cardamom for May. (The entire set of 12 soaps (aka months) will be available online in April.) These are not the first goat's milk products I've fallen for. I'm a devotee of Canus goat's milk bar soaps and lip balms. And there's always goat cheese. Need more specifics?
