Guess I should have done this earlier, but what the heck I'll do it now. My name is Chris and I live in Alaska on the beautiful Kenai Peninsula. I have so many hobbies the list of what I don't do is probably shorter. But I love making things especially using Alaska grown or Alaska harvested products. For years I made my own jams, jellies, wild berry syrups and a few years ago started making Birch syrup. I do a lot of berry picking, mushroom hunting, harvest my own chaga tea, gardening, canning,etc. Then I started looking into making soap and started with melt and pour but now make soap from scratch as well. I love to use Alaska's wild products so I try to incorporate them into my soaps, bath bombs, lip balms Etc. Rose hips, rose petals, wild berries, wild chamomile.... I bought a small still so I can make hydrosols that I hopefully will use in my products as well. Anyway I think that's a long enough introduction. And if you have any Alaska questions don't hesitate to ask.
