Good Morning Crafters!

I am a new member! I am a soap maker and have a question for those of you who are seasoned in crafts that are scented! How do you pick which scents to bring?! Are the specific bases that I should carry since I create Goats Milk or Shea Butter bars. I have about a dozen made up currently and plan on making a few of the favorites, ie. Lavender, vanilla, etc. I want a variety but I also want to reach many customers in providing different scents. I also create soap with exfoliates such as oatmeal, coffee, sugar, or pink Himalayan salt.

Any ideas on if I should stick to simple favorites or provide more variety? Do I create favorites with each exfoliate? HELP me please!!

You may wish to search out the soapmakers groups on Facebook. They are very active, a lot of my friends who exhibit their handmade soaps belong to them. You may get "more" there where it's people doing similar if you don't get much here.

Are you just getting started with selling? It is a learn as you go process, and best wishes!

I've posted a poll in a Facebook soap group. Thank you for that advice!

Judy, this is my first time bringing soap with me! I'm bringing the obvious lavender, vanilla, citrus scented, musk, etc. I was just curious if anyone had favorites they bring that sell well. I wouldn't want to bring scents people aren't interested in and miss out on good sellers.
