The idea of Isthmus Apothecary grew from some simple things in life, but mainly my constant drive to understand things and make my own "stuff".
Rachel and I were discussing feeding birds, something that we love to do, and as it was November in Wisconsin it was getting colder out, so naturally we started discussing making our own suet. And then like most of our conversations go we went into a million different directions! "Could we render tallow?" What else could we use tallow for? Wait I remember this movie back in the 90's called "Fight Club".... So thus was born the idea to try to hot process soap from tallow. The story continues next time!
