Bath Products Made with Goat’s Milk

fragrance oilsWhat’s your name & Your Company Name:  Jerry McKay, Keldora’s Kreations

Started in 2001 by my late wife, Linda Kelly, Keldora’s Goat Milk Soap has been sold in farmer’s markets and various retailers throughout the Canadian Maritimes. She was a very crafty person and was always looking for new projects to try. One year, we had an abundant supply of goat’s milk, so after researching, she decided to try making soap. The first time she took the soap to the Tatamagouche Farmer’s Market with her crafts, she sold six out of nine bars and became very excited. Customers began asking for more scents and colors, so she expanded her selection, which included many fragrance oils from Nature’s Garden. Today, there are over 125 scents used for our product. She did start making other things with the goat’s milk, including shampoos, lotions, and candles, but as the years passed, she began to tire easy and was not able to keep up with the demand. Linda survived her first battle with cancer in 2005 but lost the fight when cancer was found again in 2013.

Since March, with the help of my daughter, Joyce and, Linda’s friend, Mary Ellen, the soap making has continued and customers have shown their loyalty with their support. Currently, we are looking to add more retailers to our wholesale list, and will be adding some of the previous products that were made by Linda back on our inventory list.

Many people have asked us how we came up with the name “Keldora”. Our children actually made the word out of our full names. Sitting together at the table, which was a feat in and of itself, they crossed out all the letters that were the same and were left with “Kel” from Kelly, “dor” from my first name Theodore, and “a” from Linda. The name was originally used for our petting farm, but continues as our soap business.

This year has started out rough for our family but we will keep working hard to make Keldora’s Kreations a success, worthy of Linda’s memory.

Most of our best selling bars are made with fragrance oils from Nature’s Garden. Here are: Spiritual Awakening, Indian Sandalwood, Bermuda Triangle, Tibetian Amber, Cranberry Orange, and Cool Clean Cotton.
