Hello everyone! I am originally from Québec, the french part of Canada, but I moved to India around five years ago. I have been introduced to soap making as a child by my mom, who had a brief interest into that, but turned out to love the chemistry of essential oils much more ! When I moved to India, the lack of « natural » products made me very frustrated (oh, my dear aleppo soap and Weleda products, how I missed you!), to the point of starting to do research and attempting to make my own things. With my mom sharing me her knowledge of essential oils, all the information available on Internet, and the results I was getting (my face cream became a huge hit! everyone in the family is addicted to it now ), well... I quickly developed a passion for homemade stuff! My goal is to replace as many store bought cosmetics and households products as possible with homemade things, and who knows, maybe someday start selling them, as I find really sad this huge gap that there is here. There is A LOT of work ahead, but even if it doesn’t work out, I will at least have had a lot of fun! So a few days a go, after hours and hours of reading, I finally ordered all the material to start the soap making, and now I am anxiously waiting for my parcels to come to make my first soap!
