Hello all! Like many others I've been lurking for a few months but finally decided to join in! I have only been making soap since the fall and have 6 batches under my belt. And already I am slightly obsessed. It's nice to have all of you who know this feeling. I'm still a bit shocked that it comes on so strong! So I got into making soap because I have 3 boys (7, 9, 13) who are always dirty. Lol no really, they are just piles of dirt, but I wanted a creative outlet that could be useful. I work around chemicals at my job and I like to bake so it wasn't a stretch for me to combine recipes and chemistry to make soap. I look forward to learning from you guys!!!
