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.”
Recently, a customer purchased a shave brush like the one above for her husband along with a few shave soaps and a couple of soaps for herself. Today, she sent this lovely feedback and I'm grinning from ear to ear.
There~ Your package of loveliness arrived yesterday!! My husband got
the mail and said "WOW, the mailbox smells amazing"!! He absolutely
loves the shave brush and soaps. We found an old bowl that belonged to
his parents and will work perfectly for the soap. He is very talented
in metal/wood working and has already designed a stand to hold the brush
and bowl as a wall mount. I will send you a picture of it once it's in
place. I wouldn't be surprised if it's by next week. He is VERY
excited about his new toys. As an added note, the soaps I purchased for
myself smell heavenly!! The box the products were shipped in smells so
nice that I put it in my guest room closet. Thank you so much for such
a wonderful, quality product!!!!"
