Moving Forward with the Business
Ever since I have taken the decision to move forward with the business and get legalized here (dedicated facility) I have been producing larger quantities of soap rather than experimenting. Another Canadian friend-of-the-family, Michaela, has been visiting and has been helping me make soap as well as taking lots of awesome photos. So I share some photos of my latest soap logs.
After so much experimenting, it has been challenging to decide which bars are the ones I will be repeating. It comes down to simple, natural, mostly ingredients from this area. I think I will have about 10 bars that are my basic bars. Then I will continue to experiment with new bars and new products. For now, my focus is on deciding the basic bars (lots of testing!) and production.
I have also been busy with Christmas fairs and markets. I have two this upcoming weekend.
I am loving making soap more than ever, and feel so fortunate to be able to dedicate so much time to what I am passionate about!!! Life has gotten so much simpler over the past few months... more down-to-earth in general and bounce-out-of-bed happy in the mornings!!!
I hope you are all well and busy and enjoying the lead up to the holidays.
