The person behind the soap
Hi,my name is Jacqui and I live on the Norfolk -Suffolk border a little town in the Waveney Valley ,not far from Norwich and the stunning Norfolk Broads .
Originally from an art background, my life took an unexpected turn when I was inspired to begin making handmade soap.
I wanted a soap for myself and my family that didn't leave our skin tight and dry, that was gentle, moisturizing & had great lather. I also wanted a soap that bought an element of luxury to bath time.
After deciding to stop using palm oil and any of it's derivatives very early on, I spent a long time developing this recipe and finally settled on using seven oils to give me the qualities I wanted.
Into the mix I included beneficial natural ingredients such as herbs and essential oils to make them as healing and as soothing as possible.
I love making soap and I thoroughly enjoy every aspect of it's journey from weighing the oils to hand stamping, beveling and hand packing each bar.
I would never have expected for soap making to become a virtual obsession and certainly not a business.
I really hope you enjoy using my soaps as much as I enjoy making them.
Also have a look at my blog - I will be updating this regularly about all aspects of soap and soap making.
