Red Robin Soaps was the very beginning of our home business. I've been making homemade artisan soaps since December, 2010, later adding lotions, balms, and lotion bars. I also create many knitted and crocheted items -- clothing, washcloths, shopping bags, and decorative items.
To read about my soap-making business before we moved to the farm in August, 2015, please click here. You'll find a page on my personal blog dedicated to soap and lotion-making. After August, 2015, all soap and lotion-making posts will be found here on the farm blog.
Soap-Making posts after August, 2015:
September, 2015 -- I make my first batch of soap since moving to the farm -- coconut mango, tea tree, lemongrass, lavender, and linen-scented.
October, 2015 -- I work toward new packaging for my soaps, moving away from plastic zip bags and toward burlap and twine.
November, 2015 -- photos of some yarn items for sale, plus photos of a new soap batch curing for Christmas sales at the farmers' market
