In 2016, I took a short soapmaking course and I was instantly hooked! It’s turned into a passion and a part-time business. I love creating new products and combining colours and scents to create handmade soap! It’s like baking – without the calories.
All of my soap is cold-processed. This involves a 24-48 hour saponification process before unmolding and cutting the soap. Then soap has to cure for 4 to 6 weeks in order for the water to evaporate. It’s a long process but well worth the wait! The longer soap cures, the more long-lasting and gentle it is.
