http://www.thingsfromhomeinc.com Please enjoy this first of 5 videos that show you the process of "making soap" by hand in your kitchen out of the finest all natural and organic ingredients.
The soap maker featured in this video is Mickey Dye-Ishikawa of Asheville "North Carolina". Mickey has been working in the "health food" industry for 12 years, and has been making artisan handmade soaps for the past 4 years or more!
Her products are unique in a craft (soap making) where anyone can buy the basic raw material to make soap. While many of the well known "handmade soap" companies out there make good products, many of them also cut corners by using inferior ingredients in the name of cutting costs to mass produce their products. Mickey believes that everyone SHOULD be able to use soaps that are made only with the highest quality natural and organic ingredients available, so thats exactly what she uses to make her soaps!
This video series about Mickey Dye-Ishikawa and her handmade soaps, and her company "Things From Home, inc" is a "joint venture" project between her and (Robert Bankston) of "The Method Reports, llc" where they are working together to "increase her sales" online using the techniques of the "Video Marketing" program written by Robert early this year, "The Youtube Marketing Course".
