I’m Alyssa, I’m moderately new to this extent of soap making. I started with melt and pour soaping a couple of years back for fun and for more meaningful gifts for family and friends. When I was trying to figure out how people created these beautiful, intricate, textured bars of soap more recently, that's when I discovered cold process soaping. I've been hooked since 😍 I am still learning formulas, practicing designs, trying different tools and techniques, etc. Creating is just so fun every time and I feel like everyone around me is about sick of hearing about it which is why I am so glad I found this forum lol

I created Gilded Goose Collection recently which was encouraged by my other half since he apparently saw potential in me (and probably is sick of my hoarding 😅). I am still brand new and in the works of finding exactly what my niche is, but I do 100% believe in supporting our local family businesses knowing that your money is going back into your community and your neighbors livelihood vs some multi-billionaires pocket. (end rant lol)

We have a small hobby farm in southwest FL with 12 chickens, 6 geese, 1 cat, and honey bees in the works. If you can't tell by the name I chose for my business, I am obsessed with my geese! They are such an underrated companion and highly socially intelligent animals. I want to shine some light not only my creations, but on them too!

Wow this was quite a mouthful, but I am excited to talk soap with other soap lovers and creators that enjoy this as much as I do and who can teach, critique, inspire, and help me learn!

Welcome! I like your stylish geese. Look into making soap with your eggs. That could be fun!
Thank you 😊 I have actually done some research about adding eggs in my soap! This is definitely a more advanced step that I’m trying to find more info on so any advice is welcome!

DeeAnna is a member here and has written a lot of helpful articles. Here is the one for making egg soap. I highly recommend giving the rest a read. Soapy Stuff
