Links

There are a variety of websites I find interesting and useful and this is an ongoing collection I am building.  Here are many of the sites I find super useful…


Great Local Links from here in Columbus:

The Columbus Cultural Arts Center is a fantastic place to learn all sorts of arts including pottery, sculpture, copper enameling, jewelry making, weaving, oil painting, watercolors, and so forth!  I love taking clay classes there!  They have exceptionally reasonable prices!  Check them out; you won’t regret it!

Boline Apothecary is a wonderful local shop providing herbs, tonics, natural bodycare products, and everything earthy and natural and pure.  Our soaps, lotions, and some pottery are available for sale there, too.

Traditional soap-making information is available about how soap-making was accomplished historically.  Before the availability of purchasing lye, people would utilize wood ash to extract the lye from to make soap.   http://www.fragrancex.com/fragrance-information/traditional-soap-making.html
