I've always enjoyed creating beautiful things - and if they're useful, that's a bonus. I started making my own soap because a friend gave me some handmade soap. After trying it I was hooked. It was unlike any soap I'd used before. I initially decided to make soap just for me because I'm tired of all the chemicals and additives we're subjected to on a daily basis.

My husband applies cortisone creams to his face because of his dry skin and his dermatologist told him to try different soaps. I suggested he use the ones I'd been making.

Anyway, before long I was making more soap than my family and I could use. I continued to read up and experiment with different oils and herbs.
