Soap is to the body what laughter is to the soul. - unknown
We have a confession to make. At My Healthy Bliss we are unabashed soap-a-holics. And we are proud of it!
It's been more than 20 years now since we stumbled over a simple homemade soap recipe in an old homesteading magazine. We were instantly in love with the idea of taking 3 humble ingredients (lard, lye and water) and turning them into something useful and wonderful: soap! That simple soap cleaned almost everything in our lives for years and years, people, pets, babies, laundry and home, and opened us up to a whole world of soapmaking wonder.
Thus began a journey that we are still on to this day. We have made thousands of bars of soap since then, some plain and simple and some elegant and complex. For many, many years we made every single bar of soap that was used in our household. And we had many faithful customers who purchased our homemade soap for their families as well.
We still enjoy making soap when we can, but sadly we don't have much time for that anymore. But that's ok, because we have discovered that we have boundless appreciation for soap that other people make almost as much as our own.
And there are so many wonderful, beautiful soaps to be had from all over the world! Artisan soap from a master soapmaker in Oregon. Elegant hand milled soap in the centuries old French tradition. Rich Greek and Italian soaps made from pure Mediterranean olive oil. Polynesian beauty soap made with Tahitian gardenia. Oh, my. It's like an escape to a different paradise with each shower!
