Southern Sass Sensastions Taking it Beyond the Soaps!
After extensive research we decided to add a Swiss dairy goat to the farm. After learning about the high nutritional value of goat's milk, we determined it would be useful to have such a source to improve our feeding programs. We found Nellie and she added Oh Hannah, her daughter, to our milking program. Both are providing milk for the family (we've been making cheese) and we even used their milk to implement raw milk fertilization to our fields last summer.
Our goal is to have our farm be healthy and we also want our family, and friends, to live healthier lifestyles - even down to the kind of personal products we are using. So we decided to put the girls' milk to work in lotions and wholesome treats for dogs and cats. We have been receiving very positive feedback from people trying our products and we hope you'll like it too.
Just Keeping It Real!
The lotion, and all other Southern Sass products, are made here in the Appalachian Mountains, in a log cabin on our farm. We use fresh ingredients and pure essential oils (for scents). There is no use of synthetic colors or premade bases. We make every batch from scratch.
We have been working on discovering a recipe for goat's milk lotion that would have as few preservatives as possible - and those had to be all natural. After years of hard work, we've found a great recipe that we are happy to use ourselves and happy to share with you.
Everyone needs a little sass now and then!

Why Go To The Trouble To Make Our Own Lotions?
This is a question we are often asked. As you know, your skin is the largest body organ. You have to take care of it and be very careful what you put on it. Most big-brand lotions contain harsh chemicals that can irritate the skin, alcohol that dries the skin, and sometimes petroleum products. Our goat milk lotion is made from natural ingredients that don't leave the skin itchy, dry or irritated - and is better for you and the environment. And the goat milk offers even more benefits. "What are the benefits?" you may ask (please ask! We want to tell you!).

The Mad Dutchman Lotion - Are you man enough? Our Mad Dutchman lotion was inspired by Jonas Kanagy, great patriarch of the family and known as the champion Amish wrestler in the Big Valley of Pennsylvania. With his wrestling name, The Mad Dutchman, Jonas held his title as best wrestler for many years. If he were with us today, he would be man enough and would be using this organic, farm tough, lotion that can handle anything you can throw at it and face the challenges of the day. We’ve added lanolin in this recipe for extra moisturizing qualities, so not only is it goat tough it is ram tough! So the question remains, are you man enough, Grossa Mahn (Dutch for “Big Man”) to sport this lotion?

We received numerous requests from concerned pet owners to find, or create, recipes for healthy pet treats. We had no idea how many allergies dogs and cats can have until we started this research, so we have created and tested these treats to be healthy for your best friends.
SASSY DOG TREATS - Tested and Loved by Our Dogs
Pumpkin is very beneficial to your dog’s digestive health - and dogs love the taste! Combine this with organic, farm fresh eggs, our goats’ milk, organic rice flour, organic farm raised parsley, a bit of sea salt, and you have a delicious, healthy treat for your best friend. We bake them twice for crispness. Gluten free.
Sassy Cat Treats - A Purrfect Treat - Tested and loved by Mama Cat, ruling feline of our farm
To be honest, knowing how picky cats can be about their food, we were hesitant to make a cat treat. But, we finally found a recipe that seems to work for even the most finicky feline AND it is gluten free. Using our goats’ milk and powdered milk, farm fresh eggs, organic catnip, and honey from our bees - it is a very healthy treat.
Inspired by the hardest working woman we know, the matriarch of Smiley Farm, Salina (affectionately known as “Liney” by her Amish kinfolk) required a hand salve that was extra healing and moisturizing that meet the daily challenges of farm work, canning, sewing, wrestling cows & goats, hay making, gardening, etc. etc (because you know the work never ends).
Liney has created a pure, organic salve that receives its moisturizing qualities from lanolin, beeswax from our bees, shea butter, avocado and almond oils.
In Lavender, Citrus Sensation, Lemongrass & Mad Dutchman.
Bee Lucky You Lip Balm
Since there has been a shortage of four leaf clovers, rabbit feet and lucky pennies, we have created the “Bee Lucky You” lip balm. You can carry some luck in your pocket! Naturally SPF 15.
We believe in consciousness in our personal products and have made the healthiest, happiest lip balm for you, your family and the environment. It even contains honey beeswax from our happy honey bees.

The beauty of sugar scrubs. We love body scrubs and have tried every kind all over the world. We have made, and repeatedly tested, these sugar scrubs to meet our expectations. So we hope you love them as much as we do. The ingredients used in these sugar scrub recipes are time proven and truly natural. They are taken from fresh products which have specific scrubbing, exfoliating qualities and nourishing qualities as, you know us, we use only the REAL stuff.
Sugar is a natural glycolic acid which is very often used to slough off dead skin cells to stimulate the growth of new cells. A craft made sugar scrub that uses rich oils will leave your skin looking and feeling soft, radiant, rejuvenated, silky smooth…and that will make you feel great. As usual with the Southern Sass products, there are no unnatural or harmful chemicals, no vague ingredients, no nasties. We use only essential oils which are extracted from plants. They are pure, free of chemicals, highly concentrated and contain the real essence of the plants. How to use: Any sassy way you wish, but we recommend applying liberally on dry skin and massaging over your body. Breathe in those essential oils then rinse. Enjoy the softness & smoothness!
Thyme to Relax Southern Sass Sugar Scrub - Everyone understands the relaxing, healing property of Lavender. Thyme added to this mix just makes the whole thing better for you. The health benefits of thyme essential oil can be attributed to its properties as an antispasmodic, antiseptic, bactericidal, stimulant, and tonic (among its many other benefits). Both essential oils have valuable and clarifying properties. The oils of Olive, Apricot, Sweet Almond, Avocado, and Vitamin E are so good for you and will nurture and moisturize your skin.
Sensational Citrus Southern Sass Sugar Scrub - Orange essential oil has a rich, fruity scent that lifts the spirit while providing a calming influence on the body. Orange brings peace and happiness to the mind. Lemon essential oil has a strong, purifying, citrus scent that is revitalizing and uplifting. The oils of Olive, Apricot, Grape seed, Avocado and Vitamin E will nurture and moisturize your skin.
Lemongrass Sugar & Sea Salt Scrub Detox - Combine the benefits of sugar with the detox properties of sea salt and you can scrub that low energy off and get peppy. With the essential oil of Lemongrass, the scent will lift you up. The oils of Olive, Apricot, Sunflower, Avocado and Vitamin E will nurture and moisturize your skin. Scrub off anything that is slowing you down!

Enjoy the Benefits!
Goat milk lotion is frequently recommended by dermatologists and used successfully by people with skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, acne, and general dry, itchy skin.
Moisturizing: All milk contains natural emollients, vitamins and triglycerides that moisturize the skin. Fresh goat milk contains even more benefits as it has a pH level closest to that of human skin- this means is gentle to your skin and helps protect against bacteria. The cream present in goat milk act as natural moisturizers and boosts the moisturizing quality in soaps. Goat milk has a short-strand protein structure that allows it to be easily absorbed into the skin. This is important because keeping skin naturally moisturized helps keep skin healthy. As we sassy sisters are seeking to age gracefully, moisturizing is very important!
Minerals: Goat milk contains important minerals for the skin such calcium, potassium, magnesium and selenium. Calcium tones and smoothes skin. Selenium is believed by scientists to have an important role in preventing skin cancer. Selenium can also help prevent damage to the skin from excessive time in the sun.
Vitamins: Goat milk contains many vitamins such as B1, B6, B12, C, E. It is particularly high in Vitamin A, which is necessary to repair damaged skin tissue and maintain healthy skin. There have been several medical studies showing that creams made with Vitamin A reduce lines and wrinkles, control acne, and provide some psoriasis relief.
Nellie, Oh Hannah & Sass: The best goat milk soaps are made from fresh goat milk. Nellie, Oh Hannah, and Sass provide the freshest milk twice a day. They free ranges with our other goats on mountain pastures of clover, lespedeza, and a variety of grasses. They love milking time as each receives sweet grain and, their favorite reward, one peanut in the shell. They are happy, healthy goats and a great addition to our small farm.
