1.  What’s your name & Your Company Name:  Hello, I am Tanya from Titania’s Dreamy Delights

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  I started my soaping journey almost 6 years ago….. it all began when I was looking for a rainy-day school holiday activity for my children and I found an online supplier for ‘melt & pour’ soap bases.  My kids weren’t really very interested, so I used it to make moulded soaps myself.  I quickly decided that adding luscious shea or mango butter, as well as milk powders and aloe vera gel, gave me soap that I could actually use.  Up until then I found that any store-bought soap dried out my skin terribly and gave me an irritating itch.  I was hooked!

I had never felt particularly creative as a person (that is how I saw myself – that I didn’t have a creative bone in my body) and although I had been involved in personal development allowing me to work on and improve my mind, it wasn’t until I developed an interest in soaping as a hobby that I tapped into my unknown creativity!  I felt just like a thirsty soul being offered a drink of crystal clear water…. I fell in love.  It was a wonderful awakening for me and continues to be to this day.

I began formulating my Cold Process (made from ‘scratch’) soaps more than four years ago and have since added bath, skin care and facial care products; all designed to gently care for and pamper skin. I have a background in skin care training/sales and use this knowledge to create products that are designed to target all skin types and conditions.  My area of specialisation is cold process soap-making and I have an almost magical feeling making every batch of soap – the chemistry and synergy created expand my awareness, my ability to live in the moment and simply makes me happy.  I feel there is so much more I can do to develop in this area and I am enjoying the journey immensely.  I hope I never arrive at my ‘destination’ as it is just too much fun continuing to learn and grow.

3.  What products do you make and sell?  ~ see paragraph above; plus soy wax aroma melts.

4.  What are your business goals?  ~ to continue my soaping journey, developing improved recipes to suit every skin type.  In doing this I will be servicing my customers needs with products that not only help their skin – they satisfy all the senses (except maybe taste!).

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  So far I have only purchased fragrance oils from Natures Garden.  Shipping cost to Australia where I live can be quite pricey so I maximize this by getting top quality fragrances that work so well in my cold process soap, bath and body care products.
