Goat Milk | Benefits :: What's In It? Series

Not my usual, witty title; I thought about-- The Neahs Have It or Loaded Milk.... Moving on.

I love goat milk!  I love its color, texture, and unique aroma.  Most of all, it is loaded (see, I should've used Loaded Milk) with amazing benefits for the skin.

Did you know:
  • Goat milk is abundant in calcium, phosphorous, naturally occurring sodium, potassium, magnesium, Vitamin A,  Vitamins B-1, B-2, B-3 and B-12, Pantothenic Acid (another B Vitamin; B-5), Biotin, Choline (part of the B family), and many other trace elements.  Man!  Forget the medicine, just soak in or drink up some goat milk! 
  • When applied topically, goat milk easily absorbs into the epidermis, thus boosting the health benefits of the entire body.  
  • Skin problems, such as eczema and psoriasis, benefit from the nutrients that are in goat milk.

Those pointers alone, should convey, why goat milk needs to be in your body & bath regimen.  Eagerly, I want to share my favorite benefits, which are also the reasons goat milk is used in our wholesome products.  
  • Natural cleanser, moisturizer, and emollient for thousands of years!  Hello.  You've seen pictures of women, with gorgeous skin, from ancient times.  No Photoshop either.
  • Can't have a complete body & bath regimen without an exfoliant, right?  No worries, goat milk will remove those dead, old skin cells--the alpha-hydroxy acids make the skin smoother and softer, with an overall lessening of fine wrinkles and skin discoloration.  Ladies (and gents), goat milk is an anti-aging agent! 
So, with a 4-in-1, natural ingredient like goat milk, you can't go wrong adding it to your body & bath regimen.  

Goat milk can be found in our wholesome Fizzing Goat Milk Bath.  Sample size too!

3 Simple Steps for Hydrating Winter Epidermis | Smell Good Spa™

The winter months can be so unkind to your skin - wrecking havoc by turning hydrated skin into parched skin.  With the dry, cold air outside beating at your skin, cranked up heat indoors pulling moisture out of your skin, there seems to be no rescue for your epidermis.  Lost cause?  Absolutely not.  You just have to make a few adjustments to your winter bath and body care routine:

Step 1: Use a gentle grime fighter that won't strip your skin of its natural, protective oils, and that will also add to the conditioning of your skin.

 Organic Love Body WashA pure organic, castile body wash! Lather up in goodness of sunflower oil, coconut oil, palm kernel oil, and glycerin! Organic Love is enriched with African Black Soap and Green Leaf Papaya to eat up those dead skin cells! 

Step 2: No more than 3 times a week, your skin should receive some TLC with a scrub/polish.  Exfoliating eliminates dead skin (keratin) sitting on the surface, removes impurities from the pores,  and leaves behind smooth, soft skin.  

Almond Whipped Cream ScrubA creamy body wash and exotic sugar scrub, with Sweet Almond oil to boot. Pick up your favorite sponge or puff and cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize, and fragrance your body!


Sweet Raw Sugar Honey PolishA skin delicious blend of golden crystals, for banishing dead skin; pure plant oils effective for mature skin; rich humectants for protecting the skin; and honey to boot.

Step 3: Add an oil treatment to your bath & body routine. Topping the epidermis off with wholesome oils (emollient) is the best way to seal in moisture.  

  MarinadeAn after-bath oil, that is great for those on-the-go days. Seal in the moisture after showering, by spritzing on this oil-free Shea Butter oil blend. 

 Pure Body BalmA head-to-toe deep moisturizing balm, created for those women who need a bit more TLC for their scalp and body.  Pure Body Balm rejeuvenates dehydrated skin, works as a protective barrier, and is gentle on sensitive skin. 

Question: What methods do you use to protect your skin during the winter?

Be Whole,

Treat Your Skin to Coffee :: What's In It? Series

Ahhh, yes, isn't it just beautiful to look at?   A creamy, latte color and robust, coffee aroma to match, aren't the only attributes this beauty possess.  

Coffea Arabica Seed oil (and) Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, bka, Coffee Bean Butter promotes excellent moisture retention, protects skin from ultraviolet light, penetrates quickly into the epidermis (fast protection and won't get wiped away before doing some work), and it protects the skin during harsh weather conditions.  This butter is a wholesome hero to damaged, red and dry skin.  For some of these reasons and many more, Coffee Bean Butter is used in many natural anti-aging formulations.  

Why we love this silky butter:
  • Instead of hydrogenated vegetable oil, our coffee bean butter contains organic coconut oil and organic olive oil.
  • Has major anti-oxidant properties. 
  • Has excellent spread ability.
  • Smells amazing.
Coffee Bean Butter does not contain caffeine.  

Coffee Bean Butter can be found in our White Chocolate Coffee DECADENCE Layered Sugar Scrub (a mouthful, I know, but it's so good, it deserves a long name).

Mantra: Just Life + Flow | Clarity + Strategy | Un-Muting.  Helping women to embrace their ecology.

Personal Note: I e-met Akilah over a year ago via You Make It Beautiful (ymib.com).  Ever since, I appreciate her beaming reminder, that being an Execumama isn't a nebulous idea, it's a way of life that should be embraced, guilt-free.

I've been asked this question often...

What IS Life Design, anyway?

Are you wanting some clarity around that too?

Well, I'll illustrate my perspective with this...  

If you think the widespread adoption of the "Occupy" movement is merely a combination of coincidence and good marketing, think again!

Much like what's going on inside you, people all over the world are deciding to DO SOMETHING about living in muted spaces.

My desire is to inspire women in business, to aspire to be the best that they can, in all aspects of their lives.
