Step back in time and learn how to make traditional and nourishing soaps from local, grassfed beef tallow, extra virgin olive oil, and organic essential oils. Indulge in the "slow body care" movement.
In this class, you will be shown how to make high quality cold process soaps using beef tallow, sodium hydroxide, local extra virgin olive oil, herbs, and organic essential oils.
Each student will take home three different soaps that they custom decorate with herbs or flowers. The soaps are: Lavender and Sea Salt; Coffee or Activated Charcoal; and Calendula and White Fir. These are traditional soaps that leave the skin feeling clean, soft, and exceptionally nourished.
SAFETY NOTE: Alkali solutions are caustic. Rubber gloves must be worn whenever handling alkali crystals and solution. Safety glasses must be worn while mixing alkali to protect the eyes from any splashing, and care should be taken not to breathe any fumes that rise up from cooking soap products. Materials will be provided.
