Last year I had the good fortune to participate in a CSA, community supported agriculture co-op. While there I discovered something other than food: handmade soaps, hand creams and lip balm. I don’t know about other people, but when I thought of handmade, what came to my mind were pillowcase dresses and beaded jewelry. I certainly enjoy those things. But I do not require them for daily cleanliness.
