Amongst the many compliments and claims we hear back from customers about our Goat Milk Soap, one of the most common is how it makes the perfect gift. People love to use it, and even more, they love to share it. In honor of its wonderful gifting nature we've titled our new holiday soap the 'Julbock'. 

The Julbock (Yule Buck) is the bringer of gifts in Germanic and Scandinavian tradition. The last bundle of grain harvested in the fall is reserved to make a little straw goat for the upcoming holiday season. At the beginning of Yule these little goats are gifted or secretly placed into the homes of close neighbors. Some of the town's youth also dress up as a goat and distribute gifts to all the other children.

Our holiday gifting soap, the Julbock, is delightfully scented with Hay Absolute, Hops, Frankincense, Balsam Peru & Clary Sage, and exudes a bright grassy musk. It has received a pleasant, endearing response from all those who have smelled it this far!  

There is much speculation as to how the tradition of the Julbock first began, but it is curiously ironic that the start of Yule, December 21st, is also the day the sun moves into the zodiac sign of Capricorn, the goat. Much of Germanic, and subsequently Scandinavian, tradition personified celestial activity, especially the death of the sun at the winter solstice and his new birth on the morning of the 25th. My guess is, the Julbock, being made with the last sheaf of the grain of Virgo, is just another telling of the same beloved Christmas story.

Goat Milk Soap on the Curing Rack
Handcrafted. All Natural. Dye Free. 

Everyday North soap is made from scratch in small batches with quality ingredients chosen for how they benefit the final bar. Palm oil makes it hard and long lasting, coconut oil provides a quick, fluffy lather, and olive and sunflower oil gently moisturize the skin. Still, goat milk is the most outstanding ingredient in the mix! Loaded with vitamins and essential elements that nourish the skin, goat milk also breaks down the ‘glue’ holding dead skin cells together without drying or disturbing the skin’s natural pH. Thanks to the milk, this soap can ease inflammation and acne, soothe dry and damaged skin, reduce wrinkles, and delay signs of aging. Each variety contains a unique blend of pure essential oils or natural fragrance, providing options for all preferences. We proudly offer our goat milk soap and are confident it will become one you look forward to using everyday!
