I felt inspired to learn how to make skincare from scratch after my three remaining grandparents passed away, all within a relatively short period of time (my Nanna and Pop sadly died within a week of each other!). Listening to their eulogies, it became apparent that their generation are/were so resilient and so skilled, yet today we rarely spend the time to listen to stories and learn new skills. I felt so saddened that I hadn't taken the opportunity to learn enough from my grandparents (something that I deeply regret to this day), and decided to learn how to do something, anything! This time coincided with a period of personal growth in relation to health and natural living, so the desire to learn new skills combined with newly found passions around wholefood cooking and sustainable practices somehow led to learning how to make soap - from a book! I quickly became hooked and have never looked back. - Ali McGann
