Hands-On Basic Level Soap Making Class
Come learn how to make handmade, natural cold process soap with Rustic Escentuals! Class size is limited to 10 students, so sign up today! Each student will receive hands-on experience, an information-packed class handout with instructions, recipes, and soap made in class. You will learn safety guidelines and reach a level of comfort so that you can finally make soap by hand at home! 

In this basic level soap making class we will show you how to make soap from a traditional oil blend and a lye solution. Participants will learn how to work safely with soap making ingredients to create naturally luxurious handcrafted soap for your family and friends.

We'll discuss how to use math and soap calculators to formulate your own recipes. The topics of lye safety, oil choices, fragrances, super fatting, natural additives, molding and curing will be covered. Students will take home two bars of ready-to-use soap and 2 pounds of the soap you made in class - a retail value of $65+! Lye will be available for sale at the class for $10 (cash only). Carol will send out an email reminder of this a week before class.  As a bonus, class participants will also receive free samples from Rustic Escentuals to take home for soaping.

** Please let us know if you have specific allergies or special needs we should be mindful of ahead of class. For example: if you need to sit closer due to vision or hearing issues or if you have severe allergies to certain ingredients or foods. In addition, we ask that no outside food or drink (except for water) be brought in to the class to help avoid any potential issues with those who might have allergies. ** Click here for full product details and documentation.
