Good, clean soap

I had stopped buying commercial soap about ten years ago due to the fact that it dried out my skin something dreadful and found that I could get soaps from natural markets that were much nicer to my skin. It was at that point when I realized that not all soap was equal, and that I had grown up using synthetic detergent bars on my skin and not soap at all.

During the summer of 2015, I was reading a craft book by Martha Stewart. She was talking about how soap used to be a tedious task which once a regular chore performed by people of yesteryear... or something like that. It made me curious as to how soap was made. I did a Google search and it seemed complex and a little dangerous. I watched some YouTube videos, bought a couple books, and took a soap making class. I just couldn't stop thinking or talking about soap and once I made my first batch, I was completely hooked. I couldn't stop making soap and within an instant I was overwhelmed with more soap than I could ever use in a lifetime. Before I knew it, my family, friends, and coworkers were all loving my soap and asking for more.

I started my soap making business shortly after and continued selling soap online and at local arts & crafts shows until the end of 2019 when I moved from a three bedroom house to a one bedroom condo and no longer had the room to have 1,000 bars of soap sitting around and curing for a month. I closed up my soap making business and started to concentrate on my original business I started back in 2013, which was freelance bookkeeping (so if you need someone to help you with your books, give me a call, or rather, send me a message). I still make soap as a hobby for my own use as well as for family and friends and I have just recently decided to re-open my Etsy shop to sell the excess soap that I create.
