The surgery is the part of my studio where I make my soap. This is the basement kitchen in my home. We call it the surgery because it’s where I operate on Birdie’s Soap Nest. The word “Surgery” comes from the Latin word “chirurgiae” meaning handwork.
Everything starts with an idea. The recipe binder is my collection of recipes that I have created over the years.
Don’t ask because I’m not telling.
Once I have created my recipe, I start putting it all together
I never have enough fragrances so there s always one or two on order.
My molds go on forever. There’s no real orderly fashion; I just dig until I find the one I need. The wooden molds are all handmade by Scott. Isn’t that cool?
One the recipe is made, it’s poured into a mold and allowed to set for about 2 days before cutting.
