I remember it well. It was right after a Christmas many years ago for which I had made soap for gifts for friends and family. As many of you have experienced...I was bitten by the soap making bug...and soon had more soap that I knew what to deal with...and people who wanted to buy it. One of the things I recommend learning early on is how to label your soap. It not only keeps you straight about what's in each particular batch...but allows the people who are buying your soap to know as well. And when you decide that you really want to set up shop, make sure that you understand good manufacturing practices, and get your soap or candles business set up right - right from the start!
