July10th we will be building on your knowledge and skills making Salt Soaps! You will make spa quality, long lasting, mineral rich, detoxifying, exfoliating, & balancing salt soaps. These soaps last four times longer than regular soaps. They require some extra soap making knowledge to make successfully. I will demonstrate what to do and NOT to do to create the perfect salt soap. You will leave with approximately 4 pounds of salt soap. If you have single cavity soap molds please bring them to this class.

You will learn the secrets to formulating your own recipe for all the benefits you desire in your soap. Learn the properties of oils and how they contribute to lather, hardness, trace, & more. You will learn how to calculate your very own soap recipes, based on sap values, temperatures, and desired soap qualities- from poison ivy soap to facial bar.
