Hot Process Organic Soap with Essential Oils - Saturday, July 28


This is a brand new workshop led by visiting guest instructor, Holly Port!

Come learn how to make hot process soap, a soap similar to cold process method, except that it is cooked and does not need a 4-6 week cure time. This has a number of advantages, especially for upcoming fall/holiday sales. Learn how to easily make hot process soap safely, and by the end of class you'll be comfortable making your own at home. 

Learn how to choose oils and butters, how you can add fragile ingredients that won't "hold" well in cold process soap. This is a hands-on workshop taught by indie beauty expert, Holly Port from Lotion Bar Cafe (see bio below).
