That was not the word I would associated myself with when I was younger. Growing up, I did not have many girl friends, instead, I found myself playing with boys and learning to adapt to be part of them. Yes, I was a "tomboy", wearing long pants, climbing trees and walls, catching insects and break their legs!
Until one day Grandma took me to visit someone and for the first time in my life, I saw a pure white girl's bedroom. It has a bed with lacy net over the bed, with dolls house and white bedroom setting where every little girl dream of! I look down at my dark color long pants that I was wearing at that time and all of sudden, I did not feel beautiful! Right there I said to myself - "When I grow up, I want to make sure that I look and feel beautiful!"
On the top of that, ever since I can remember, I have suffered from allergies including eczema. I was allergic to certain things that I ate and things that I touched.
In the past, I would use commercially made body soap, and then had to apply tonnes of moisturizer on my skin. If I didn't, I would be up all night scratching like a monkey and I would not be able to sleep.
For many years, I found it hard to find products that I could use and enjoy, without causing any reactions.
So when I was first introduced to Goats Milk Soap and found that it worked for me and my allergies, I thought to myself, Could I produce my own soaps and turn it into a Business?
Unsure of what to do, I asked God for direction. Prayer and devotion to my Christian faith is a strong foundation for all my decision making and everyday lifestyle choices. This, combined with my background and knowledge as Home and Small Business Sustainability Assessor, Soap de Villa was born.
