Why do you make soap, is often the first question I hear. The motivator, as stated on my home page, was trying to find something that wouldn't leave a rash all over my husband.
Who would have known I would have became a soap junkie? My first batch was just about as simple as you could get....lard, lye, and water. Even with that simple recipe, could feel the difference on my skin. That's all I needed. I read up on the properties of the different oils, percentage usage, jotting down formulas to try. For me, it is fun from start to finish.
