If my father were still here today, I am sure he would have enjoyed my soaps. He loved smelling nice and clean. I remember he would buy a lot of bath products during his travels, and he had a row of cologne bottles and after-shaves on his bathroom counter. He also liked designing and fabricating things, like the mini island in our kitchen which also served as a huge chopping board. The surface was solid wood with a thick stainless steel frame. I bet he would have had fun helping me with some of my soaping needs.
Father’s day is just around the corner and this year I remembered to prepare early. I try to have a good variety of colors for my display, but currently I have more blues than usual. Yes, it was by design, but coincidentally blue is one of my favourite colors to soap with. I like how there are so many different shades and tones to choose from and I think all of them are beautiful. They tend to stay true to their colour, and unlike yellow and orange, I don’t need to use as much.
Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads! 🙂
