The following is a guest post from my dearest friend, Alana. Alana and I met on the first day of our freshman year of college. We bonded quickly over our love of rollerblading, macaroni and cheese and Jane Austin. As Anne Shirley says, she is a true kindred spirit and I am beyond lucky to count her as my friend.
Alana has a creative mind and has always been good at brightening up spaces. I was not at all surprised when, staying at her house in Virginia this March, she greeted me with a bar of beautifully wrapped homemade soap. It smells amazing and immediately became my favorite bar! I asked her to share her recipe so that you can share in this delightful product. As for me… I’m just hoping she brings a few bars my way when she comes to visit next week! :)
Ever since I was little, I loved making and using new body products. From applying mud masks to that middle school phase of using roll-on body glitter, I was hooked on trying new things. So when one of my friends invited me this past fall to make soap bars with her, I could not pass up the opportunity! I was surprised at how beginner friendly the process was and within a few weeks I had purchased all the ingredients to make my own.
