Hi guys! My name is Lisa... and I, too, am a soapaholic. It has only been 1 day since my last batch (HP beer soap). I have been eyeballing this forum practically since day one and wanted to introduce myself. I only starting soaping about 2 months ago, but have been hard at it since my first batch. Im 26 and live in Mississippi. My husband and I are both Paramedic/firefighters. We recently just purchased a rundown farmhouse with acreage and couldn't be more excited about it. We have always been obsessed with natural/healthy homemade products and making our own soap was pretty much the last frontier in it all. Im so glad We finally took the plunge!
