Let’s say living in a house full of boys has its challenges too in the odour department. Since I grew up having allergies to all sorts of things I've definitely learned over the years to deodorise the house in a very natural way, and there are so many different ways you can do that!
This christmas we aimed to keep it simple, using what we already had, and making the most of nature and what was growing in our garden. Making gifts became important and catching up with people was extra special.
I have looked at cold process soap many times, but knowing that there is a learning curve, it has taken me quite a while to even think about making soap this way. Also there is a chemical reaction that takes place when making these soaps, so you have to be on top of safety concerns and wear safety equipment.
