JOURNEY

What was found along the way

Certain scents have a way with evoking our emotions. They can remind of someone we love, bring us back to a certain time in our life that holds great memories, or place us on our favorite beach.

I believe this is why I've always been attracted to homemade soaps. When I travel, I find myself in small boutiques searching for handcrafted soap bars. I love taking time to breathe in all the unique scents displayed, and I end up purchasing ones that connect me to something special and unique to me personally.

Homemade natural soaps also remind me of days before my time when life seemed simpler, slower and more genuine. Like many of us, I attempt to live in the moment and appreciate the little things that makes life so beautiful. It makes me smile to think something as simple as soap can do that.

history

How is soap made?

Homemade natural soap is made by mixing together different fats and oils with a base of sodium hydroxide (lye) and water. When combined, it creates a complex chemical reaction called saponification. The end result is soap! Essential or fragrance oils are added at the end for scent. 

While it's not known exactly how far back soap making goes, it is believed that it was discovered in Biblical times when the Romans would sacrifice animals on the mountainsides. Rainwater naturally combined with the animal ashes from the altar, leaching out the lye. The water would then trickle down into the river, creating bubbles. Romans noticed that there clothes were cleaner when they used this water.
