Hello, I live in California and I was working in Hospice. I resurrected my interest in making soap after many years, and its very therapeutic for me. I find that I'm improving more and more as I read this forum, gain ideas for new soaps and watch youtube videos. I stumbled into this forum by doing a search on the internet. My son is a barber, and my new soaps are aiming for his clientele, hoping he'll sell some bars for me. I plan to get a business license to be able to do that. I am obsessed, and would like to make soap 5 days a week, small batches of 9 bars, but with other priorities, I create 1-2 days a week. That's about it. Thank you all for sharing. I hope to show my creations soon.
