Join Blue Lotus Botanicals for an introduction to cold process soap making. In this two hour hands on workshop we will be making soap from scratch with vegetable oils and lye, also known as sodium hydroxide. We'll cover important safety issues and the chemistry that causes caustic lye and fatty acids to combine and make soap!
After learning the science behind the soap, we'll work together to make a fresh batch of our own. We'll infuse our homemade soap with fresh farm botanicals and send everyone home with a bar!
