Producing High Quality Hand Made Soap in our House:

Soap making takes over the Hall home for a month or so every year. Jim cooks the high quality oils on the stove top. Then he mixes, and pours into block molds, cuts, and places bars on trays to dry for several weeks. Chris and her support committee help label bars and pack boxes for mailing. Enjoy glimpses of the process below:
