Today, June 22, 2013 is Midsummer Day. Here in Sweden, it’s normally a day to relax after all the family and friends, time spent eating and drinking snaps. Every now and again there is a special activity planned for the day.
A customer of Li’l Sis Goat Milk Soap, requested a soap-making tour. We have had people come often to visit the goats. No one has requested a real tour. I put together a very informative tour starting with our goats and goat care. I not only supplied items that we use daily or need to have on hand for our goats, but to add to the talk were photos of events that could not be shown on this day. Here are topics that were covered:
- Goat nutrition
- Medications, when needed
- Winter considerations
- Goat “Meet & Greet” in the enclosure
After the first portion of the tour was completed, we went into the workshop( Leif’s) and had the Soap-Making presentation. There was much to discuss and no real need for photos because everything was right there to see and touch. Here are topics that were covered :
- Safety Equipment
- Natural Botanicals
- Natural Colorants
- Natural Essential Oils
- Natural Butters and Oils
- Utensils Used
- Li’l Sis Goat Milk Soap Products were on display for purchase
Because of where our guests stood, they were able to see our goats run into the enclosure and leap and frolic as they always do. They were able to watch them eating and playing and falling back into their family units.
The Soap Making portion of the tour:
I would like to thank my husband for his support, all his help in organizing and moving things for me.
This was our first fully organized tour here at Gullringstorp and hope it will not be the last.
