Any Neighbor that knows the Beekman story, knows that Megan has been part of it from the get-go. She’s one that we rely heavily on for an array of things. And chances are, you’ve purchased some of her delicious products.

What are your top 5 Beekman products?

1. Original unscented 2 bar bag goat milk soap: This was our very first creation for Beekman 1802, and it grew to almost cult status immediately. This is real soap. Made the old fashioned way. By hand with only the purest ingredients. And it’s completely unscented, making it one of the most natural beauty products available.
2. Bug Spray: It has the same secret formula that’s in our famous Natural Bug Repellent Soap Bar  into a spray bottle. This bug spray is loaded with essential oils that bugs hate…but still smell nice to other humans.
3. Original Cajeta: Most people are familiar with Dulce de Leche – a caramel sauce made from cow milk. When caramel is made from goat milk, it’s called Cajeta.
4. A Seat at the Table cookbook: Being part of the cooking/photographing of the cookbooks is always an exciting experience.
5. We’ve Got You Covered Apron: Each apron features hemline pockets lined with Thermaflec fabric so that the bottom portions of the apron serve as hand protectors when removing items from the stove, oven or freezer.
What is your favorite scent that Beekman carries? 
Ylang Ylang & Tuberose: Scented with a blend of Madagascan ylang ylang with notes of tuberose and a hint of warming cedar wood, it’s subtle scent lingers on your skin for hours.
What is your favorite packaging?
Goat Poop: Everything from the actual tin to the artisan insert with a photo of each goat.

My first product was your wonderful goat milk soap, and the hand lotion. After this was your great thick bony cream!! This was about 2 1/2 years ago. Now I use your line of products for everything! I gift your products to everyone I live. Recently ordered your hand salve and ciuecile cream which is the best I ever used. Love everything you make!!!

I started using Beekman 1802 products earlier this year. I love everything I have tried thus far.
Love the lip balms, unscented goat milk soaps and lotions. So enjoy watching Josh and Brent on Evine ~ very entertaining, very genuine, caring and inspiring!!! LOVE THAT THE PRODUCTS ARE MADE IN THE USA!!!

Our first product was the Unscented Soap. We did not know what to expect. Now we are Beekman from Head (Shampoo) to toes (body cream). Beekman is all we use. I just received my light as air eye cream and once I tried it, within minutes you could see the difference. I don’t think there is anything that we have tried that we do not like. We love you Beekman!!!!

My first Beekman products were in the Oak Moss scent, which I LOVE… it’s clean, and it’s long-lasting which is a big plus.

Now I’m thinking the ylang ylang-tuberose, which I hear is more in the “alluring” category.
Looking forward to sampling some !!

My favorite is the original goat milk soap – works great on my 11 month old granddaughter who has such beautiful, creamy skin! I have been buying my products on Evine.

I attended the cook book event here in Atlanta last month, and I am SO enjoying making the recipes from A Seat at the Table !

My mother loves your products, but she doesn’t use a computer or a smart phone. I’m entering so I can give the prize to her. She’d love anything, but I’d say the cookbook would be great because she was talking about it on our trip to visit the mercantile a couple of months ago. 🙂

Pick one? ARE YOU KIDDING? ONE? Well, I guess I have to go with the lip balm. I have one in every purse and coat pocket the 2 cars, nightstand, backpack, in the tv room on a coffee table, and kitchen drawer. Scent, honeyed grapefruit!

Love your bar soaps, they are the best ! I first started to use them last year with the oak moss bounty box. My daughter and boyfriend uses them also. This year ordered bounty boxes for each of the seasons and made up other boxes for birthday presents by ordering other soaps, lotions, and facial wipes. Looking forward to trying the grapefruit, but I asked for the bounty box of snow forest for Christmas. Have a Merry Christmas and look forward to ordering more product in the New Year!

I absolutely love everything Beekman. I have my own mercantile going on in the back bedroom. So afraid I’ll run out of something that I buy in multiples. Of course, some of it is going for Christmas gifts. I always share my favorite things. There sauces, like the Cajita, are sooooooo delicious. That would be my pick of Mega’s favorite things.

Winter chill with a sweet carmal smoothness! That’s Cajeto over vanilla ice cream. It’s the perfect ending to the day as you snuggle in front of the fireplace on a long winter’s night. It’s the holidays rolled up in into one dessert, perhaps with a candy cane on the side. This is my expectation for Cajeto—and I can’t wait to try it!

I would love that apron! Well, actually I would probably ‘love’ to give it to my daughter who is an obsessive baker. What an innovative idea to have hand-protector-pockets! And, just maybe, she might find some goat poop in those pockets…

The best of the best is of course your original soap. To compliment is the lotion. Can’t be without especially in the winter. Both will be in our car for the trip this winter for S.C

After using many Beekman products my favorite is still the full size soaps. They smell divine, last forever and give such rich moisturizing lather. A close second might be the lip balms. Soft and moisturizing with a hint of color. Love them and hoping for a couple in my stocking!

I love all of your products, but the goat milk lotion is what I need most as my skin is so dry right now.

I would love to receive the Beekman apron. I am not an aprom person, however, I think I could become one, if I owned this awesome apron. I too love all of the Beekman products; soaps, lotions, cheeses, goat poop. I have many lucky friends who recieve “something” Beekman every year. Merry Christmas and Happy 2018 to everyone Beekman.

I WISH I HAD HEARD OF YOU ALL IN 1997 & AGAIN IN ’08 BOTH TIMES I HAD HEALTH ISSUES WHERE DRS TOLD ME ONLY USE PURE PRODUCTS TILL THEY COULD FIND THE CAUSE OF MY PROBLEMS ETC. THE CLOSEST THEY COULD COME UP WITH WAS IVORY SOAP. THIS SOUNDS SO MUCH NICER. I CAN USE ANYTHING NOW BUT WILL GIVE SOME OF YOUR PRODUCTS A TRY NEXT TIME I NEED SOAP ETC.

I would love to try the pink champagne jelly, it sounds interesting. I also am lusting after the stackable porcelain fermenting pot. Love you guys and love your products, especially the soaps. You should market yarn. I’d love some from Polka Dot.

I have gifted several of your products and tried samples for myself but never purchased anything just for me so I would probably start with the unscented bar soaps .
I have some of the 1802 lotions and soaps in my Christmas gift stash to give to a few special people.

I’d love the Thermaflec Apron to give to a friend I don’t spend enough time with because of miles between us, a true, friend of 40 + years, Jeri. With the large pockets and great material, great drapage and feel good material. One could never lose anything again with these deep pockets.

Got introduced to Beekman 1802 from The Shopping Channel (Toronto) and loved the product so much, my sister and I road tripped to sharron springs to visit the mercantile. Delightful! I tried many of the skin products but at the mercantile I bought the edibles. Yummy! I will tag my sister Diana because she loves the products as well.

I love, love, love all the Beekman products! I gifted some of the lotion and hand soap sets to friends and family last year for Christmas and now they are all Beekman fans. I bought the six-pack of the goat milk soap for my husband recently and he commented on how much he liked it. He said his hair has never been so healthy. (This is big, he never comments on any products). Not in 35 years! So it is needless to say that we are fans. Also love seeing both of you and your sweet goat babies on Evine. Please keep these wonderful items coming.

Hi Beekman Men, just love so many of your products. Luv the lip balms, they are great. Using the goat milk bars, they are to die for, my skin feels wonderful. Also have used the hand wash and hand lotion, they are terrific, would luv to try the ylang ylang. Sounds great, have used the orange blossom and violet, they are just beautiful. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas, and a blessed new year.

I love the pure goat milk. So soothing. I saw sooo many things when I was there recently for the needle felting class. Which was great by the way. Loved the goat poop. The jams, OMG the Hot Buttered Rum what a treat. I would love any of the skin care, I just love it
