[pen-chuh nt; French pahn-shahn] /ˈpɛn tʃənt; French pɑ̃ˈʃɑ̃/
1. a strong inclination, taste, or liking for something:
It all started in 2013 when I made a list of things I wanted to learn and places where I wanted to travel. Many items on my list were typical like traveling to Paris, learning to surf and seeing the Great Wall of China; but there was one interest that particularity brought a glimmer in my eye, I wrote “Learn how to make soap.” Little did I know how writing those five words would change the course of my life.
You see, I have ALWAYS loved to buy and use handmade soap. When I use handmade soap, I feel happy. I love the way that it makes my skin feel and the fact that it is created using high quality, natural ingredients.
When my husband and I were married in Fiji, there was a handmade soap in our villa that we enjoyed so much that we purchased at least 80 bars. We bought it back to the United States and gave the soap away as a celebration of our marriage to our closest family and friends. After returning from our amazing trip I was motivated to learn how to make my own soap.
From the day that I took my first soap making class, I was hooked. I enjoyed the process of creating customized products with delightful aromas that indulged the senses and invigorated the soul. I made so much soap that I had to give it away to make room for more soap. To my surprise, the people who I gave my soap to started to place orders.
I have a penchant for soap making. Making soap to me is how I breathe. It is my air. It is sort of a ministry to me. I believe that it is a divine gift that was given to me to make other people happy. Thus the birth of the Sunshine Sweetie.
