Industrial produced soaps are often much like junk food, so why not produce your own and know what is in there. Learn about your skin type and create any soap you want, it is that easy!

Explore the industry and the meaning of their labels as well as how to produce your own products in a healthier way.

In this small group class, you will learn how to make your own organic soap with ingredients and equipment that you (probably) already have in your kitchen. Your teacher will show you how to make soaps with pure natural materials. No artificial scents or additives are used. Note that you will learn how to use caustic soda safely, as it's a required ingredient for soap-making.

With or without any experience you will learn the foundations of the cold process technique. You will be choosing your favourite natural essential oil (13 varieties available). I'll teach you how to add herbs, scents and other additives to your soaps, give you tips and tricks about ingredients to help you create your own soap recipe.

Once you know the basic, you will be able to customise the recipes into your own signature soap for personal use, for gifts, for profit or just to learn about what goes into making a soap.

You will leave the class with two bars of soap (about 1.5 kilos) for you to enjoy and lots of notes with all the information you need to understand how soap making works.

Elena is a great teacher! She’s very patient and explained the soap making procedures very clearly. I really enjoyed this class.

Alessandra Spiga Sep 2020

Elena showed great knowledge and she carefully went through all the steps of the soap making process which is quite complicate. She also provided a great selections of resources such as oils, butters, dried flowers and essential oils. The lesson was intense and Elena gave us so many great tips. I can’t recommend highly enough this class if you like to learn about soap making . Absolutely worth it☺️

Nice class. The place is really good and Elena is awesome. I got home with my very first soap and I'm really proud of it.

I loved this course and learnt so much practical information on how to make really natural and moisturising soaps. Elena taught us how to customise our ingredients to suit the type of soap that would suit our individual needs. For me, my skin is dry so I love being able to add oils to directly help with this.
I have made my own batch of soap since doing the class and was thrilled with the results. The notes we received and also took during the class made doing it myself a breeze.
Elena has a naturally warm manner that puts everyone at ease and before long we were all busy laughing, learning and creating all at the same time.
I would highly recommend this soap making workshop for any age group.

Really enjoyed the soap making class. The teacher is very nice and very knowledgeable. I learnt a lot about how to make my own natural soap and would also love to book another class with her to learn how to make candles.
