Love+Leche is a New Mexico company that specializes in producing soap and lotion bars from natural ingredients. They use local beeswax, flowers, goat’s milk and essential oils to produce lovely bars. Love+Leche started in 2005 under the name Milk+Honey and started selling its soap and lotion bars at the Santa Fe Farmers Market. After growing the business for over ten years, in the last year or so the company decided to work with local artisans to create a lotion bar design just for knitters and fiber artists.
My lotion bar arrived with a sweet note, showing one of the goats whose milk is used in the bars. The Sweet Sheep Lotion Bar comes in a variety of scents including Citrus Rose, Lavender, Lavender Mint, Lavender Rosemary, Lemongrass and Unscented. As you can see I selected Lemongrass. Perhaps my favorite part is the sweet sheep mold that the bar came in.
I really enjoyed the clean fresh scent and the lotion bar made my hands feel fabulous. I really liked the bar because I got the benefits of lotion without having the extra liquid and greasiness that some lotions can leave. In general I don’t use that many pampering products, but in winter my hands get dry, and any dry skin can snag fibers when I’m spinning. So I’m definitely keeping this lotion bar next to my spinning wheel and plan on enjoying it frequently!
