I have been soaping for quite a while now, and the adventure has made for quite a soap opera.
Thirteen years ago my husband decided he wanted to keep bees on our semi-rural property, which we did successfully for quite some time. The issue arose as to what to do with the beeswax. Make soap of course!! he said. So, I studied, and I learned, and I played, experimented and fell under the spell of the varieties that soap making can offer. I was hooked.
I started having to buy larger and larger quantities of ingredients from a local supplier for whom I started teaching classes. When she said she was selling up and moving to Queensland the opportunity to jump had arrived. With my business partner, Julie, we bought ourselves a business and named it Heirloom Body Care (www.heirloombodycare.com.au). We wanted to be able to help all those out there with the same soap addiction to fulfil their dreams, to create the purple soap with green polka dots, or the stripped one, but most especially the soap that will ban rashes and dry skin forever!
