And don't forget to check out greenladysoap.comI tried it. Greenladysoap is a member here and OMG. The soaps are luscious. They are good for your bod, gentle, smell terrific and are beautiful on top of that.

They would make a great gift, decoration, and or treat for yourself. They are packaged so that they look chic!

Hi Ali,I love the Bergamot Coriander... it smells rockin on the bathroom shelf and rockin on the bod. This lady (greenladysoap) has true talent. She designs the packaging for her own soaps and they are adorable and beautiful. I am sure these could sell on a site like sephora.com for about 10-15 bucks! They are great. I want to try the exfoliating one called Camomile Citrus.

I make handmade soaps myself. If you ladies really like what you see you should look into taking a couple of classes. It can be very tricky (using lye) but it can be very rewarding. There is nothing like handmade soaps. It still has all the natural glycerin (which most of store bought soaps it has been extracted and used for something else). Also the most harsh chemical (lye) becomes the most gentle ingredient (glycerin) after what is called saponification. You can use animal fat to make soaps - but I don't I use olive, coconut and vegtables oils. Check out some of the sites on the web (such as http://www.alcasoft.com/soapfact/history.html) to find out more on the history of soap making.

(Rouge, soapmaking(real soap- as CP) is a serius craft, and it takes years to perfect the recipes... Not to mentions a lot of time and research to get it going... You sure can do it, as any other arts and crafts...) Greenlady - Yes I know it is serious I have been doing CP for about 5 or 6 years now. But I don't do it as a business - so no worries here. I use to but my best friend took over the business - I did not have time to do it full time (and it is a full time job) I just enjoy doing it and giving it away. And you are right, it takes time and research - sorry to step on any toes. P.S. by the way your soaps are beautiful. Nice Job
