Ashley Marie LeBaron
Ashley’s journey started when she set out create Christmas presents for her large family one year, rather than buy them something generic. That’s when she discovered soap making. She bought a soap making book and her first batch blew up in her face, literally. She tried again and it worked, her whole family loved the thoughtful gift, so she tried a few more batches. She posted them for sale on Facebook and after her first sale, the rest was history.
