Beginners Cold Process Organic Soap Making Class - Palm Oil Free
*Thursday, Oct 22 date will become active on Friday, Sept 25 before 10am*
Cold process soap making is the foundation for all other natural soap making techniques.
During this 2 hour class, we will start by talking about the difference between conventional soap you find at the drugstore versus handmade soap.
You will make a recycled soap mold to hold your fresh 2 pound batch of soap.
You will learn how to make an organic soap recipe that you can call your very own, from the base oils you choose, to the colours, exfoliants, and essential oils. We use a base of organic coconut and organic olive oils in this class, with the addition of special oils and butters. Every ingredient you pick has a benefit and adds something to your soap.
Please note, I do not use artificial fragrance oils, only pure essential oils.
There are many choices for natural colours. Some of these colours are typical and others are very unusual and creative.
We will discuss the huge amount of options when it comes to natural colours and we will discuss some sources of colour that you need to avoid, both natural and synthetic.
We will talk about natural ingredients that help to make your soap harder and last longer.
We will be unmolding and cutting a freshly made batch of soap so you will know what to expect when your soap is ready to cut.
We will take a look at different ways to wrap and package your soap, how to cure it properly and when you will be able to use it.
This class is not a demo class, it is very hands on.
I will make sure you are comfortable with each step of the soap making process so you are confident and successful when it comes to making your soap on your own.
You will also take home your customized recipe with all information you need to duplicate it and all the information you need to create even more personalized recipes for yourself and others.
Your soap will be packaged in a transportation box and you will be able to take it home after the class.
You can unmold and cut the soap the next day.
I look forward to answering all of your questions both during and after the class.
Aprons and face shields will be provided but it is a good idea to wear something you don't mind getting messy as we are working with oils.
