    Hey Nancy,
    That’s a great story! Really shows the power of natural products and essential oils!

    I got interested in soapmaking when I saw Kimberly McNutt wash her toy Pom in her homemade Cedarwood and Teatree essential oil soap. The poor dog was covered in fleas but this soap killed them within minutes and the screen in the sink drain was full of dead fleas. I have been going crazy with fleas both last fall and now. I may want to start a small business but my first target is fleas and other nasties like ticks & mosquitoes.
