Join instructor Lanae Rhoads, as we learn to make cold-process soap from scratch! Although it may seem complicated when you are first starting out, making your own soap from scratch using all-natural ingredients can be both fun and rewarding ~ not to mention extremely addicting!

Why are people drawn to making their own soap from scratch? Many of us start making soap to have inexpensive, homemade, natural gifts for all the holidays and birthdays throughout the year. Or, some of us begin soaping because we have friends or family with sensitive skin that is easily irritated. Many commercial soap companies use cheap petroleum-based ingredients (like mineral oil) that can be harsh on delicate skin. By making soap in your own kitchen, you can tailor it to suit any skin type as well as ensure that only the most beneficial ingredients go into your finished soap. In this class, we will make a 2-pound batch of soap (about 8-10 bars) using the cold process method.
