In this two-day class you'll learn to make wholesome soaps using old-fashioned ingredients and modern methods.
Using vegetable oil, lye and water you'll make your soap. Then you will create your own unique scent blends with essential oils. On the first day, you'll learn all about different oils for different soaps and you'll make soap.
The second day, you'll cut and package your soaps.
Class cost is $200, with a registration fee of $30 due when you sign up. The remaining $170 is due at the beginning of class and covers all your materials.
Bring an apron, smock or old shirt to cover your clothes.
Registration deadline is September 18. Due to space limitations this class is limited to two students. You'll get lots of personal attention from Aunt Linda!
