In this class we will go beyond our previous basic soap class. Included will be instructions on using natural colorants such as clays, adding infused herbs to our soap and creating soaps with exfoliants. Each participant will take home a loaf of soap that will be cut into 5-6 bars of soap.
This is a hands-on class with all of the utensils and safety equipment provided.
