So I started making my own soaps. Now a soap without any smell makes for a dull soap. Girls, especially me, like a hint of something in their soaps so their skin smells fresh, too. Instead of using artificial fragrances, I’ve opted using essential oils. I did some research on the wonderful world of essential oils. Not only are they usually used for aromatherapy, but people who are allergic to synthetic fragrances or who suffer from asthma generally have no reactions to essential oils because they’re naturally derived from the plant.
I’m working on the packaging element to make them look prettier when I head out to the Farmer’s Market this year. Soap and books might be on two different ends of a spectrum, but you could always read a book while taking a relaxing bath, right? *looks around hopefully*
