I have four wonderful children. As you can imagine my life is pretty chaotic. There is a lot of running around and plenty of love. We try to save money wherever possible. Which means making some things ourselves.
I started making soap about 3 years ago. I was told by the pediatrician that my sweet twins have eczema. She recommended some expensive chemical filled cream. I did some research and found jojoba oil. Upon more research I found several really cool soaps. these soaps were about five dollars a bar though. with two kids and another on the way I started adding up how much we would go through and I knew there had to be another way. Then I found all these Youtube videos. The thought came to me that I could make my own. I watched so many videos and took notes. I started the math to find out if it would be more cost effective to make myself. It definately was. When I made my first batch it turned out horrible but effective. I fell in love with it. It blends chemistry and art like not much else. Once I grasped the beauty of it I was addicted. Now I make soap almost everyday. My passion and drive has created the opportunity to share the art that is soaping with all of you.
