Interested in creating your own skin nourishing soaps?

In this two and a half hour class, we will discuss the chemistry behind this process, and safely use oils and lye to create 5-6 bars of soap for each person to take home. You’ll walk away with the recipe and skills to make your very own soap again!

This is a hands-on class with all of the utensils and safety equipment provided.

Please note: this soap will not cure in time for holiday gifts, but will be ready by mid-January!
