Crafter Spotlight: HotHouse Creations Soap Co.

What will you be selling at Unglued?
All natural, handmade soaps and other natural body care products.
What are your greatest inspirations?
Nature! I aspire to make things pretty and useful, and most of all not harmful to our bodies or the environment.
When and where did you learn your craft?
I learned to make soap about 9 years ago, from a chemistry book. I was allergic to everything and unable to use most store products. My first soap was oatmeal honey, and it's pretty much all I use still.

What makes your product stand out?
While my priority is to have a healthful, natural product my soap is very visually striking. I try to use unusual scent and color combinations, within the realm of non-synthetic colors and additives. Also, there are some products that I simply can't carry because they can't be made without synthetic ingredients. "All Natural" is more than just a slogan for me.
Any other interesting tidbits you’d like to mention?
After years of customer disbelief, I have finally seen Fight Club! I get asked that at least 10 times at every show and figured I should see it some time. :)
