I’ve thought about the past few days and realized I’m grateful for a week of teaching soap making. I never thought I’d enjoy teaching, but I do. The thing about teaching is you have to teach what you love.
I met a Girl Scout troop Monday and taught them about skincare, and how it’s important to be beautiful on the inside. We made melt and pour soap and lip balms.
Thursday afternoon I was with my skincare class. I have a few elementary students I meet after school once a week. We made melt and pour soap. They were so excited to bring 2 bars of soap home to use. One girl said she was going to give her mom one of her bars of soap, and all the other girls decided to do the same. I love seeing their generosity.
Friday night I taught a soap making class in my home. The Long Island ladies were awesome and had a ball learning learning how to make soap. I gave them soap samples to use now, since their soap won’t be ready for another 4 weeks.
On Saturday, I did a private class for a married couple who want to start a business. We made a few batches of soap, along with lotions, cream, balms, scrubs and talked about selling bath products. For me, this doesn’t seem like work, it’s fun.
I’m grateful for a week that reminded me how much I love to teach soap making.
What are you grateful for this week?
Yours in Gratitude,
