We Have the BEST Customers!

The gift basket in the photo was a special order for Kathryn J. Just got the sweetest email from her -- "Sue recently spent about twenty-five minutes on the phone with me, helping to choose four fragrances to send to a dear relative. Her knowledge of all the "notes" in her perfumes, and additionally, which fragrance would be appropriate for the recipient's age and location (in this case, Texas) was invaluable. Where else would you get such customer service? Saks Fifth Avenue? I think not. Sue is the best!"

Liquid Soapmaking

Some photos from this weekend's Liquid Soapmaking class with industry veteran Marla Bosworth of Back Porch Soap Company


Cooking the soap in a crock pot.

Blending the soap with the stick blender & checking the soap's temperature. You want it to be around 160°F.

Diluting the cooked soap paste and getting out all the lumps.

Checking the pH. You want the pH to be 9 or under.
