Description

If you’ve been curious about how to make natural soap completely from scratch, but perhaps a little daunted by how to start, then this is the class for you!

Not only is it a wonderful skill to have, but once you can make your own nourishing and moisturising soaps, you won’t need to go back to mass-produced “soap” again, with its artificial ingredients and drying detergents.

Much like cooking, soap making uses some ingredients and equipment you might already have in your kitchen.

During this class you will be shown how a batch of soap is made, using natural vegetable oils and pure plant essential oils. You will then participate in making soap under supervision. Batches will be shared so that you will be able to take home 3 different types of soap. You will receive instructions on how to cut and cure the soap by yourself at home.

Some of the topics covered during the class include:

  • Safe handling of ingredients
  • Equipment needed
  • Moulding options
  • What oils are commonly used in soap making and their properties
  • Options for exfoliants and colourings
  • How to use a lye calculator in forming your own recipes

Upon completion of this class you should have the confidence to make more soap at home, experimenting with different ingredients, fragrances, exfoliants and colours. Soap making can be very addictive, with endless possibilities for creativity!
