Handmade soap is made with all natural ingredients unlike commercial soaps that often contain harmful ingredients such as parabens, petrochemicals, and cancer causing additives. In this course, you will learn the chemistry of mixing all natural oils with scented essential oils, and also make a special soap for people with sensitive skin. In addition, you will learn the art of “swirling” and mixing colors to make your soap look like a work of art. You will come away with a nice amount of handmade soap, and the instructions to easily make it at home yourself. Making beautiful soaps with amazing oils, scents, herbs, flowers, and colors will take your soap-making technique to a whole new level.
Note: A $50 fee is to be paid to the presenter for materials: oils of coconut, olive, and sunflower oil, shea butter, natural essential fragrance oils, colors, gloves, goggles, molds, micas, herbs, flowers, and oats.
