I constantly search for items which are beneficial to your skin and can be used in N4You Soaps as well. Luckily, there isn’t a a shortage of creative things you can do with soap! Below is a list of new items recently incorporated into my soaps and their benefits for your skin.
Goats Milk – It naturally contains many vitam [...]
N4You started as a way to offer my family natural alternatives to many of the everyday items stocked in our bathroom and kitchen. A year ago today, I decided to open an Etsy shop to offer N4You products to anyone seeking the same. It has been a fantastic year and we couldn’t have been happier! N4You products have made their way all o [...]
I know I am a little late but Happy New Year!! I am beyond excited to extend N4You Soaps into another year. 2013 was great. I attended a lot of shows, established an Etsy shop and attended a weekly Community/Farmers market during the summer. I gained and learned a lot. But my biggest lesson came from feedback.
N4You Soaps is my baby and [...]
I love making soap and body care products. They smell good, they are pretty and it makes me happy. When I decided to start selling my products, I naturally went to the web. However, selling my products over the web is a bit of a challenge since people often want to smell and/or see the products in person. So I needed to get the word out a [...]
I had a birthday party for both of my little ones and searched for homemade items I could include in the goodie bag. I came across a recipe for homemade play dough on Memories of Mine to Thine and thought I should give it a try. The recipe called for basic ingredients and made a fantastic dough. If you are ever short of crafting ideas for [...]
Clove & Calendula Soap
I currently participate in a Community Market in my town. It is a great way for local businesses to share their services/products with local residents. I met a customer one week who loves Clove essential oil in his soap and I sadly did not have any at that time. So I began my research and placed an order. I now [...]
Soaping has completely taken over my life and house. I am not complaining because I love it but it is literally taking over my house. I had curing racks in my dining room, buckets of oils all over the living room, packaging any where it could fit…you get the point. To make things even more messy, I participate in a weekly community m [...]
While reviewing From Nature With Love’s website, I came across a link to donate homemade soap to shelters. They participate in a truly wonderful program in which they accept homemade soaps and send them to domestic violence and homeless shelters. If you are interested in additional details, please visit their page here. I cannot expr [...]
As my confidence grows, I am making bigger and bigger batches of soap. I was getting tired of having to line multiple molds for one batch since I only have a small number of molds. This usually limits me to one batch a day. So I jumped on the net and started searching for larger sized molds. I found some really great molds but many of the [...]
I recently attempted rebatching and it was a major failure. I ended up with a brown goopy mess which never hardened and had to be tossed. However, I was determined and said I would revisit this at another time. Well, I recently had two batches of soap that didn’t smell too nice. I should have known better since I wasn’t too fo [...]
