    Hello from Brooklyn

    hi everyone, So happy to have found you. I made my first batch of soap about a year ago so I could then teach my Girl Scout troop. Both batches came out great. I put it aside until recently when I decided it would be nice to make soap as holiday gifts. I have completely fallen down the rabbit...
