For a good true red, look at nurture soap's really red.

Everyone has their own recipe's and advice on red, but what I do is mix a tiny bit of red oxide with a neon pink. I get a true Christmas red when I do this every time.

I thought after a while the newness would wear off, but it's been quite the opposite. After the first year or so it began to sink in but thankfully I reined myself into a manageable state.

When I first starting making soaps I was completely and utterly obsessed with it. I guess people were talking to me of other things, must have gone to work too, but all I remember is thinking about soap. Seeing soap molds everywhere, waking up in the night making recipes in my mind, thinking about designs ...

At one moment I thought: this is how it must be to be on drugs

I am a very calm person, never thought I would have this much deep passion in me.
And honestly? Soap?
Who even uses soap nowadays?

Luckily after two years it has calmed down a bit. Everyone around me uses soap now - or at least tells me so (hoping I stop talking about soap and go away soon )
Creams, make up and lotion was the next step.
But soaps are my deep, deep love. Tell me its about soap and I will go any distance just to see it
