Soap! We use it all the time, but most of us don't think about soap beyond buying it on sale at the grocery store. But did you know that most commercial soap is made with petroleum-based ingredients like mineral oil, and synthetic detergents which can be harsh and irritating to delicate skin? We offer healthy and luxurious alternatives in our home-made soaps class.
In this class, Renee Droese of Renee's Handmade Soap will demonstrate the hot process method of soap making using all-natural, artisanal ingredients. You'll take home a whole pound of hand-crafted soap just in time for your gift-giving needs.
- Safety -- especially when working with lye (sodium hydroxide)
- Materials, supplies, and equipment
- Measurements, and mixing temperatures
- Coloring your soap
- Scenting your soap & lotion with essential and fragrance oils
- Soap molds (you may be surprised to know that you probably already have some items that can be used as molds!)
- Insulating, cutting, curing, storing, and wrapping your finished soap
You will find that making finely crafted soap isn't extremely complicated, nor does it have to be expensive. In fact, handmade soaps make beautiful and affordable holiday gifts.
