10. Thou shalt not covet thy fellow soaper’s soaps. Try your hand at making something similar, but put your own spin on it. “Make it your own.” Or consider purchasing a bar!
9. Thou shalt not give false testimony concerning a fellow soaper’s soaps. Be fair, now. All handcrafted soap is made with Lye. But if made properly, your competitor’s soap doesn’t have any lye in it, just as yours doesn’t. And, contrary to a posting I saw last night by a soaper trying to make her product look more safe than another’s, Coconut Oil IS NOT the same thing as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate.
8. Thou shalt not steal thy neighbor’s beautiful handcrafted soap that they bought from the Natural Bar Soap Company. Please visit http://www.barsoapnatural or http://www.thenaturalbarsoapcompany.com to purchase your own!
7. Thou shalt not commit adultery against your handcrafted soap. Once you use handmade, natural soap, using (or thinking about using) commercial soap is not allowed!
6. Thou shalt not kill your ugly batches of soap. Chunk them. Shave them. Rebatch them. An ugly batch can be made into a thing of beauty!
5. Honor thy Mother and thy Father… on their birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, Veteran’s Day, Groundhog’s Day, etc., by giving them handcrafted, natural soap!
4. Remember the Sabbath Day, and keep it holy. Take a bath Saturday night, with handmade Natural Soap! You’ll be squeaky clean for Sunday morning.
3. Thou shalt not take the name of a fellow soaper in vain (even if they sell more than you, even if their soaps are prettier and smell better, even if you secretly (or publicly) wish theirs was yours).
2. Thou shalt not make natural soap your idol; even if the soap really is that good. Although, allowing it to be part of your daily routine is perfectly acceptable, and your skin will love you for it!
1. Thou Shalt have No Other Soaps! (besides The Natural Bar Soap Company’s soaps).
P.S. Out of order, perhaps, but completely relevant, is Commandment #11:
Thou shalt not copyright infringe on this site. If you love this, please link to my blog. But do not copy and paste, nor adapt it for your own use. I use Copyscape to protect my material.
