Cold Press Soaps – for sale
I have been making homemade soaps for about five years. I wanted to make soap for a couple of years before that. I didn’t do it because I was confused and intimidated by the chemistry mumble-jumble and the investment of equipment and ingredients. Then I met my friend, Lynn, who makes very beautiful soaps. She gave me lots of encouragement, sold me the ingredients for one batch and let me use her equipment. I had a blast and my first batch of soap turned out wonderfully!
My motivation to make homemade soap was to do something fun, have good homemade soap for our family, and to have extra soap to give away as gifts to family and friends. Then a few members of my family and some friends have asked to buy my soap. I love my soap and am flattered that others like it too.
My Aunt Anita has been a good sales person for me, telling many people about my soap, selling my soap at her craft sale in her vacation home community. My friends, Lila and Rhonda, are great customers and I love that they are sharing my soaps with others. (This post was prompted by these women and their inquires to what I have available)
