Here’s a little bit about Rachel, and how she started making soap:
I started making soap seriously about two years ago after attempting it off and on. I have always gone to markets and bought handmade soap. I have always loved soap for some reason, and ever since I was a child I have collected soaps and pretty paper. My Grams would bring me soap after her trips here and there. I guess you could say I was quite the collector.One day a couple of years ago, a vendor at our local farmers market offered to teach me to make soap. She was preparing to move as her husband had gotten orders from the Army. She wanted to share the art of soapmaking with me before she left. She said that someone had taught her and it felt right to pay it forward. So, after a brief lesson I came home, researched extensively, and began creating. At first my creations were very simple, but then they became more elaborate and artistic. I have always been creative and love to paint, sew, crochet, and do papercrafts (this is how I found Leah’s blog). I put my artistic self to work in my soap creations. Finally, it was a way for me to create a beautiful piece of art that could also be useful.I aim to make each and every batch unique and different. I love color, swirls, and want to put my special touch on every bar. I know that I am drawn to beautiful things and love to feel pretty, so I seek to create a beautiful artistic bar of soap that make my customers feel lovely each time they use it.The Daily Scrub is a creative outlet for me. It’s a family affair. My husband built me the molds and displays I use and he helps me to cut and wrap each and every bar by hand. I love being able to help my customers find the perfect bar for their skin, find the perfect gift for their friend, or find the right bar to match their home decor.
