As a New York State licensed Medical Technologist, I have always loved biology and chemistry. Back in 1999 I went to my local library, took out a book on cold processed soap making and found a hobby. I started making soap for my personal use, for family and for friends. Fast forward a few years. With both of my children graduated from college, out of the house and self-supporting, I had some “me-time” to reflect on what I wanted to do. I loved making soap. I also remembered receiving a perfume making kit as a child and spending hours creating perfumes for my mother and my two sisters. Here was my “Aha!” moment. I did some research, took a few aromatherapy classes and also learned how to create other bath products – bath fizzies, hand lotion, body balms, and bath salts. Soon I had tons of people asking me to make products for them. One thing led to another and… Alegna Soap® was born.
So there you have it. I hope that you enjoy my products as much as I enjoy making them for you!
