Learn to make your own Cold Process Soap
15 May 2021 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Would you like to learn the addictive craft of homemade soap making?
Soap making is science, but adding scent, texture and colour is art. It’s an incredibly practical, forever creative skill that’s extremely addictive, and empowers you to know exactly what you’re putting on your body and down the drain.
I’ll teach you the foundations of cold process soap making, using the simplest 100% coconut oil recipe that can be adjusted to make hand/body, hair and laundry soap. And best of all, it produces a lovely solid bar of soap – no mushy mess on the side of your sink!
Did you know many store-bought soaps contain animal fat, toxic fragrances, Orangutan damaging palm oil and other nasties?
But it doesn’t have to be this way! Making soap is incredibly easy and cheap, once you know how and have an understanding of the foundations.
Join me for an in-depth discussion and demonstration of soap making. We’ll cover the fundamentals of cold process soap making, including:
* The different methods of soap making
* What base ingredients are used
* What equipment is needed
* How to clean the equipment after use
* How to naturally scent soap
* How to naturally change the texture and colour
* How to determine the quantity of soap needed to fill a mould
* The basics of formulating soap recipes
* How to know when your soap is ready to use
* Plus general discussion & inspiration
At the event you’ll see a live soap making demonstration plus you’ll go home with a sample of each: hand/body, hair and laundry soap.
I’ve found once people learn to safely deal with the soap making chemical reactions and see how easy it is to make, they’re able to go home and start whipping up batches themselves with confidence.
Please get in touch if you have any questions via email firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
