Years ago, I traveled through the central coast of California and stopped at a charming little town called Ojai. This is a very cool town by the way and warrants a return visit to take in things missed. I ventured into a thrift shop and met a lady making soap in the back of her store. The smell was intoxicating as I walked through the door, I will never forget it. The raw herbal smell was like none other.
My encounter would keep replaying in my mind after I returned home, so I read everything I could get my hands on to start my soap journey. My very first endeavor was a batch of lavender made by the cold process method. I had planted my usual spring garden but left most of the vegetables out and grew herbs, perfect additions for my soap. So that was the beginning of a beautiful journey for me and I continue to be inspired daily by Mother Nature's special plants and this place called Tigre Mountain. It is an honor for me to share these soaps with you.
