About the BellaOnline Soapmaking Editor

Hello, and welcome to the Soapmaking site. My name is Cindy and Iím the Soapmaking editor.

I grew up on a farm in North Central Arkansas. We butchered on property, preserved our garden and orchard produce, and cooked from scratch more often than we bought food from the store. I wanted so badly to learn to make soap then, but there werenít a lot of resources to teach me. And the thought of handmade soap was just not appealing to my parents. Maybe they had too many memories of lye-heavy soap as children!

Fast forward a few decades: I found myself looking for a creative mode of self-expression. I remembered that childhood desire. I got some books and watched *a lot* of YouTube videos Ė and I began making soap and other personal care products. I started with melt & pour soap, bath bombs and lip balm. I quickly branched out to include cold process soap and sugar scrubs. Now, Iíve got my eye on lotions and beard products.

Iíve been selling my soaps since the holiday season, 2015. I enjoy the whole process of creating soap, especially cold process soaps. It reminds me of cooking, another favorite activity!
