That honor goes to Courtney and Adrienne in Customer Service. They took an afternoon to invest time to learn about swirling and layering from Erik over at Otion. Their soaps turned out extraordinary.
Catch up with Courtney and Adrienne as they candidly interview each other about their soaping experience.
Courtney: So, Adrienne, was cold process as hard as you thought it would be?
Adrienne: Oh my gosh…NO! Honestly I was a little intimidated to try cold process. But Erik, the manager at our retail store, Otion, was so great! He walked us through it step by step.
Courtney: That’s what I though too. I was most nervous to use the lye, but Erik had all the protective gear that we needed including those stylish goggles. The safety gear made me feel better.
Adrienne: Those were attractive goggles, weren’t they? So, Courtney, what was the coolest thing that you learned from our afternoon of soaping?
Courtney: I learned how easy it was to swirl by just alternating our pours. I think some techniques include swirling with a knife, but we just poured both colors in and the batch turned out great…If we don’t say so ourselves.
Adrienne: I might have a biased opinion, but they do look good!
Courtney: What was your favorite part of the soaping experience?
Adreinne: I loved making our second batch because we did it without the help from Erik. That gave me the confidence to know that I actually can make cold process soap. I can’t wait to use it now! According to our “tongue test” yesterday, I think It’s ready to use. Don’t you?
Courtney: Totally! It’s time to test!
Adrienne: So what advice would you give to new soapers out there?
Courtney: Hmmm, I would say to just dive in and don’t look back! Do the first batch as an experiment knowing that it might not look the greatest. But you have to start somewhere.
Adrienne: That’s what I would say too! It was fun to have a partner in crime for the first time, so grab a friend and try it out!
Courtney: Is that a wrap?
Adrienne: That’s a wrap!
