Here’s what a few of my fellow Soapmakers had to say about why they started Soapmaking:
The ingredients in commercial soap can cause irritation, inflammation and troubling allergic reactions. Learning to make soap provides you the freedom to use ingredients that work for your family’s specific needs, providing soothing relief for a variety of skin types.
Soapmaking can become an engaging craft or hobby that provides enrichment and joy.
Soapmaking provides a creative outlet that can double as a business or side hustle.
The soapmaking process provides a therapeutic outlet for managing depression and anxiety.
Natural handcrafted soap is the perfect gift for birthdays, holidays, wedding and baby showers, and basically any gift-giving opportunity!
By using a variety of techniques, ingredients and colors, soapmaking is an art medium that does more than simply provide a creative outlet. It produces skin soothing soap that delights the senses.
