I went home and started reading everything I could on soap making. The reoccurring thought I had was that I could definitely make soap. The big question for me was “can I afford to start such a venture”? I went to every website that I could find and started comparing prices on the basic ingredients and equipment that I would need to make soap. I became very excited because I came to the conclusion that I could afford the basic necessary items to start making soap.
I read that I could purchase the basic ingredients at my local grocery store but that did not sound like the level of ingredients that I wanted to use for my soaps. I wanted quality oils for the soap and essential oils for fragrance. I found a couple companies that sold in bulk and made my first order from an online apothecary. Some fragrances, Lilac for example, can't be produced as essential oil, so for those I used the next best thing, fragrance oils.
I made my first batch of soap and I was hooked! In the fall of 2015, Texas Soap Company was born.
