Many thanks to RVA News for this great piece on The Daily Scrub!
Here's the intro written by Susan Howson...
"Rachel Chieppa found an unexpected outlet for her artistic leanings when her favorite soapmaker showed her the ropes. Now, she’s hooked on the endless possibilities of swirling colors and scents, making something truly unique every single time.
She is so very bubbly and cheerful about soap, that it made me remember how I used to insist on handmade soaps in fun fragrances. It truly does turn each morning shower into something that feels very luxurious and ends up making your skin feel perfectly nice.
Well, dang it, now I’m going to quit and become a soapmaker myself. Here’s what I learned after speaking with Rachel."
