Wow! It's been a year since my last post! Maybe you've been wondering what I've been up to-- maybe not, but I guess I'm going to tell you anyway! :)
I still love cooking and am still actively preparing meals and goodies for family and friends, but I've also gotten into a new thing: MAKING HANDMADE, NATURAL SOAP !
Now, you may have visions of a steaming cauldron of caustic cakes (of soap), but natural soaps are actually the exact opposite of that when prepared correctly. The whole process is very interesting if you like chemistry (?!), and since I used to work in chemistry and taught chemistry, I loved utilizing my background and my desire to be creative to make lovely, luxurious, loving-to-your skin, natural, vegan (plant-based), great-smelling soap!
A friend of mine that worked with me in the chemical industry is my business partner. We've had a lot of fun working on developing our interests into a new project. Now after about a year of research, experimentation, frustrations and "Yay!" moments, we've opened our company! It's called, Flow Naturals, LLC.
Please take a look at our website:
If you read "About Us" and "About Our Soap", you'll see what we had in mind with this whole thing. Mainly, we want to offer wholesome, healthy, natural products that are good for your skin AND provide a better "soapy experience" than factory produced, non-natural products.
Also, you'll see that we offer a beautiful selection of handmade soap dishes. These are unique works of art, and most of them are crafted by potters in our area. We're so excited to have a forum for featuring and supporting local artists!
Anyway, I hope you'll enjoy taking a look at our website and products! Thank-you for re-visiting The Friendly Table, too!
