Doing something creative during this time, while saving money made me feel productive. I shared my soaps with friends and family-to rave reviews. I gave them as gifts and began to experiment with creating a solid base of organic oils. As I honed my soap making skills, I eventually decided to switch to the cold process method. Now, it brings me great pleasure to share my handmade soaps with friends from all around the country. I never use any perfumes, dyes or animal products. I continue to be inspired by a healthy and natural lifestyle and I hope when you use my soaps you will be too!
