    Selling uncured soap

    I visited a local craft festival today with about 170 vendors. 3 of them sold soap. One lady (which I happen to know) sold castille soap, another one M&P and then there was this guy who had CP soap for sale. Most of it was in uncut logs.

    making sachets

    I've seen those ornaments before. I would love to make them. But what about the smell in the oven. I do a lot of baking as well and I wouldn't want my bread or cookies smelling like roses :D
