Sweet andTranquil

Lily is currently living in a small town in Halton Hills Ontario. Her shop is Sweet and Tranquil. She has some amazing looking soap. One is called "Chocolate Covered Strawberries"! Lily also has a wonderful variety of lip balms, whipped parfait soaps, and foaming scrubs. The names all sound so yummy!!

How did you decide on your shop name?
I came up with the name of my business while looking at my products and noticed that the fragrances were both Sweet and Tranquil. Voila they name was born!

When did you start making soap and how long have you done it?
I started making soap about 3 years ago for myself and family, but did not start selling to the public until early last year. It has been wonderful hearing from my customers how much they love my products.

What is your favorite scent?
Hmmmmm that is a tough one. I love so many but right now I am partial to anything chocolate scented. That may change next week, since I am always trying new scents.

What or who inspires you?

I was inspired initially by my mother who was a crafty lady. I was always helping her with whatever she was working on. Now I find that I get inspired when I am in the kitchen cooking or baking. I find that creating a new soap is just like creating a new recipe.

Are there other crafts you would like to try?
The list would be to long! :) I am always trying new crafts, sometimes successfully and sometimes not. I would love to try silk screening.

What is the item in your shop you enjoyed making the most and why?
I do not think I can just think of just one. I enjoy making everything, but for different reasons. I started making Cold Process soap about a year ago now and I am really enjoying that technique.
