Make Your Own Cold Press Soaps

Date: Thursday, March 14                                                     Time: 6:30-8:30PM

Location: Needham High School, Room 807                            Fee: $85

This class will introduce you to the basics of making cold process soap. Cold process soaps are created by blending oils (or fat) with a lye mixture. In turn, the soap saponifies over the next twenty-four hours, turning the lye-oil mixture into a solid bar of soap! The class will cover the following:

 • Brief history and basic chemistry of soap making
• Necessary materials, supplies and equipment
• Safety considerations when working with sodium hydroxide 
• Taking accurate measurements & proper mixing temperatures 
• Coloring your soap (micas, lab colors, herbs, spices & clays)
• Scenting your soap (fragrance oils verses essential oils)
• Preparing your molds and molding options
• Insulating, cutting, curing and storing your finished soap

You will make your own 1lb batch of soap to take home with you, and you will be given a mold and thorough instructions so you can make future batches on your own. This class uses only vegetable based ingredients. Students must be 18 years or older. Limited to 8.
