My soaping addiction, er…journey, began with simple curiosity. I don’t remember exactly how I became curious about soaping, but I did and I managed to find a supplier who gladly sold me a soap making kit. Everything I needed to make a “batch” of soap came in a box, and the box was the mold. The box sat around for a while after it arrived, and one cold Sunday afternoon, I cracked that baby open and made my first batch of soap. And then it was over. I mean ovER. Ov-ah. I was a junkie. I couldn’t order a boatload of supplies fast enough. I started reading books – a lot of books – about soaping, essential oils, and aromatherapy initially, and then lotions, scrubs, butters, oils, bath bombs, all of it. I wanted to know everything as soon as possible.
When my “big” shipment arrived, I made another batch of soap. This time, it was Eucalyptus Mint.
To this day, my Eucalyptus Mint Soap is one of our best sellers. I can’t make it fast enough. This is what it looks like today. Anyone else see the man in the moon?
Everything about me + soap has evolved. Some scents have bombed, and some have repeatedly sold out when I was beyond positive that I wouldn’t sell a single one. I’ve expanded my product line to include lotions, body butters, bath bombs, lip and nail products, and I’m considering adding a few more products before too long.
To me, evolution is a good thing. I hope me + soap continue to evolve and learn.
