I got hooked on soapmaking with the first batch I made–what started as a casual hobby soon became a near-obsession! It is the perfect fusion of science and artistic process. I love the challenge of formulating soap and other products to have specific qualities using my professional background as a pharmacist. The next step is the creative challenge–developing and using decorative techniques to give the products creative flair. And don’t forget the wonderful fragrances —Ahhhhhhh! I love that the resulting products indulge our senses with great fragrances, beautiful appearances, and rich tactile satisfaction along with wonderful functionality. And I get the most pleasure from seeing people enjoy my products.
