Why do I love soap making?

Soap making has been a passion of mine for quite some time now. There’s something truly special about creating natural, handmade soaps that not only smell wonderful but also benefit your skin. Let me share with you why I love soap making so much.

Ever since I was a kid, I knew I wanted to own a small business. I wasn't sure what kind of business it would be back then, but the dream of creating something of my own and sharing it with others has always been there. Soap making became an addiction for me very quickly which apparently happens to us soap makers, and it combines my love for creativity with my passion for nature and the environment.

Soap making is my creative escape. It allows me to experiment with different colors, shapes, and scents. Whether it’s the vibrant hues of micas or the soothing pastels of natural additives, each batch of soap is a new canvas. The best part? Every soap bar is unique, reflecting my mood and inspiration at the time of creation.
One of the biggest reasons I love making soap is the control I have over the ingredients. Using natural oils, butters, fragrances and essential oils, I know exactly what goes into each bar. This means no harsh chemicals or synthetic additives—just pure, skin-loving goodness. It’s rewarding to know that the soaps I make are gentle and beneficial for all skin types.

Fragrance plays a huge role in soap making. From calming lavender to invigorating citrus, the scents I use can transform a simple hand-washing into a sensory experience. It’s incredible how a particular fragrance can uplift your spirits or help you unwind after a long day. Plus, experimenting with different combinations of essential and fragrance oils keeps the process exciting.

Living and working in Ontario, I take pride in creating products that are made right here in our beautiful province and I make every effort to purchase supplies from Ontario or at least Canada! Supporting local means a lot to me, and it’s heartwarming to see the community appreciate and support my small business. Each purchase from my shop not only brings joy to myself as the maker but also supports the local economy.

Running a small business in Canada has its challenges, but it’s also incredibly fulfilling. The connections I’ve made with customers who value natural, handmade products are priceless. Knowing that my soaps are part of someone’s daily routine and contribute to their well-being is what keeps me motivated.

In conclusion, soap making is more than just a hobby or a business for me—it’s a passion that combines creativity, love for natural products, and a commitment to quality. Whether you’re a fellow soap enthusiast or someone looking for natural skin care solutions, I hope my story inspires you to appreciate the beauty and benefits of handmade soaps. Thank you for supporting my Canadian small business and for being a part of this journey with me.
