Welcome to Soap It!
I am Brooke: wife, mother, friend, soap maker. I live in sunny Florida with my husband, two teenagers (have mercy on me), three dogs, and one crazy Siamese cat. More on the cat much later.
I love to create and usually have a handful of projects at my disposal simultaneously. For the past six plus years, my passion and labor of love is creating cold process soap. I make other bath and body products, but known in “my neck of the woods” as “The Soap Lady”. I participate at a couple of farmer markets weekly and many craft shows throughout the year. The vendor’s names are known by what they sell “The Cheese Lady, The BBQ Guy, The Orchid Lady”, and this is how I earned my name. I also have a handful of wholesale accounts. However, my journey is to open up my own little boutique. I have hurdles to overcome, but I will either jump over them or walk around them…. Either way I will move forward.
I hope through Soap It! I can share my experiences of soaping and selling with others, share my favorite online suppliers, blogs, tips, tricks and idea’s. I know I will learn from others through feedback their tips, tricks, idea’s in the soaping world. I encourage feedback and look forward to reading what you have to say.
