My very first hello...
Hello friends, curious soap lovers! I am so glad you are here. In many ways, I feel I am just a baby on this journey of soap making and selling, even though I made my first batch in 2009. In the earlier days, soap making was a hobby; also a useful, beautiful gift that I have bestowed on friends and strangers alike. I love good soap. (And by GOOD, I mean, the bars that are lovingly made with care for what goes into each one. You know? The stuff of the earth). With the loss of 2 jobs in Sales in two years due to layoffs and the pandemic, and the closure of schools (Mama here!), I decided to pursue this passion of mine to a greater degree. I am so happy that I did.
I love what soap stands for and means to me. It represents a new beginning. A restart or refresh in some way. A washing away of the old and welcoming the new. A reprieve. It amazes me when I think of it like that. It means slowing down, even just for that one shower or bath; to appreciate the pause and let it all go.
I am grateful you are here on this journey with me! I look forward to growing alongside you.
