I’m a wife, mom, and a self proclaimed soap nerd with an entrepreneurial spirit-living in Lubbock Texas, (a place best known for our expansive horizon, cotton,and as the birth place of Buddy Holly.)I guess you might say I’ve got a serious addiction to all things soap related. Come hang out, as I share my adventures in a world where chemistry meets art.
“Homemade soap feels good: soft, rich, enveloping, soothing. The lather is dense and penetrating rather than thin and airy. It leaves an emollient film on your skin that makes it feel soft and sensuous. Homemade soap is comforting in ways which manufactured soap can never be: its look, its weight, its bulk, how it feels in your hands, looks in its dish. There is something ineffable about homemade soap. It’s not homogenized, pasteurized, deodorized, sanitized or synthesized - it’s one of a kind, every bar different, each unique. It is idiosyncratic in the way of all homemade and handmade things.”
I'm very happy to announce we are branching out, for those of you who live up north closer to the Green Bay Wisconsin area-now you can pick up a variety of Tierra Verde bar soaps, shave soaps and hand balms from the Soaps by Nature Handcrafted Skincare Emporium. Soaps by Nature features a collection of natural skin care products handcrafted by small business;small batch artisan soapmakers. I'm very happy to be included in this fine online venue. For those who might be interested in a little about how I got started, and my soaping philosophy-here is a link to my artisan interview.
