About

Short Story:
I love to make soap and candles. That's about it.
I love the smells, the colors, the designs, the herbs, spices, and the chemistry involved.

With an ebb and flow meshing my livelihood into our family life, we make an effort to enjoy each and every day we are given.

Working alongside my friends and family, I'm able to pass on the arts and crafts of old on to the next generation.

And here's the long story...
My Aunt learned from the Amish to make soap using tallow, lard and so on....I was intrigued, and being it was 2000, there was very little information available. So I started experimenting...

Soapmaking becomes a passion… If you ever think you might want to just try it, be careful! It's super addicting. "Well, I'll try these scents together", or "Wonder what color this will make my soap?"...That's how it starts. The next thing you know your kitchen turns into one big experimental lab for cooking up new receipes for soap, and your dining room has a soap drying rack built into the wall.
~~~updated: 2011- *entire room* of our little house~~~
~~~updated 2012- two rooms and an office in our new bigger house!~~~
~~~~~updated 2014 - We moved to a new studio across town!~~~~~

I do love to make the soap. I've been doing it for over 13 years now, and have narrowed my recipes to my family's and customer's favorites. Each bar is truly vegan, handmade by cold process or hot process with herbs, essential oils, botanical fragrance, and vegetable oils.

As of late, I am making a selection of my peep's <---that's YOU< favorite scents, and have started to play with the color and design aspect of cold process soap...It's my canvas, now, so to speak. I fully intend to continue pushing the boundries of design in cold process soap, while keeping it as organic as possible.

AT HOME:
I love my kids, my home and my job. Our family is important, as are sit down meals together most nights.

I try to spread my talents by teaching and passing on my talents and love for the crafts and arts of old. I love to feel like I'm passing the next generation an example of a life more focused on LIVING.
