First, I would like to say, I never thought I would create handmade natural soaps. I have always had a passion for anything craft related. I tried just about everything in the crafting world. Sewing, DIY projects of all kinds, and jewelry making just to name a few. I did not get into soap-making until one day when my youngest daughter had a project to do and it was to make soap. Being the crafter I am, we were at the crafting store bright and early (fyi) we are a homeschooling family so her project had no certain day to be done. I was just too excited about having an excuse to visit the hobby store. We picked up a small case of melt and pour soap base, soap fragrance, and colorant. Skipped home and proceeded to follow the directions accordingly. Now, before this, I had never melted any kind of soap in my life but because this was another DIY craft project, I don't think I have to tell you how much I held back my squeals as I watched that soap melt in the microwave. We mixed and poured and a few hours later, we popped those pretty, smelling soap bars out their mold and sparks flew from there. I had enjoyed the project so much that I begin doing research on soap-making. After a few months of research and practice I knew I wanted to start a soap business eventually. At first my hobby was just making melt and pour soap base. Eventually I worked up some courage to make soap organically from scratch. My favorite part about soap making is the "art" that goes into it. I love making designs of all kinds and creating decorative soaps.
