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.

Hands-On Liquid Soap Making Class
Come learn to make liquid soap from simple fats and potassium lye. This class is for soapers who have had experience making soap with lye, either cold process or hot process, and are familiar with handling lye safely. Carol Isler will introduce you to the chemistry and math involved in liquid soap making. You will observe a demonstration of her hot start liquid soap process, and then get the opportunity to measure and mix a batch for yourself. There will be samples of different liquid soap pastes you can try for yourself. Your handouts will contain several tried and true liquid soap formulations to try at home. But don’t let that limit your formula repertoire. You’ll leave with the skills to use Soapcalc to design your own formulations.

Two-pound bottles of potassium hydroxide will be available for purchase for $15. Click here for full product details and information.
