Hello. I'm Zen Pretzel and I'm new to the world of soapmaking. I attended a beginner workshop a few weeks ago, really enjoyed it and now I'm setting up to make more. I hope to enjoy chatting with everyone here, learning and experimenting with different formulas, making gifts for friends and family and having fun along the way. I'm from Canada, about two hours from Toronto. I work in construction during the day. I enjoy music, going to the gym, skiing, hockey and traveling. Right now I'm in the process of gathering up supplies and equipment while binging soap making tutorial videos. I want to try making either an activated charcoal soap or a castile soap with olive oil next. Looking forward to it. It's a pleasure to meet all of you.
