Cold Process Soap Making 101

Thursday | April 24, 2014 | 10:00 am — 1:00 pm

The class will cover the following as we demonstrate how to make a 4-pound batch of soap (about 18-20 bars) using the cold process method:

• Brief history and basic chemistry of soap making • Necessary materials, supplies and equipment • Safety considerations when working with sodium hydroxide • Taking accurate measurements & proper mixing temperatures • Coloring soap naturally with herbs, spices & clays • Using pure essential oils to scent your soap naturally • Preparing your molds and molding options • Insulating, cutting, curing and storing your finished soap • Decorating and packaging to impress

Due to the nature of making soap from scratch, this class is mainly demonstration style. You’ll leave with very thorough handouts and enough information to make awesome vegetable-based natural herbal soap from scratch on your own (at home) as well as 2 full-sized bars of soap to enjoy. This class uses only vegan / vegetarian ingredients.

Ages 18+, space is limited, register online.
