This hands-on class is for beginners who want to learn about cold-process soap making (bar soap) & liquid soap making from start to finish.  Cp soap making is the most popular, easiest & fastest soap-making method.  However, the most versatile type of soap is liquid soap; as a soap base, it can be added to various recipes to make a variety of other products: body wash, dish soap & more (these recipes are provided in the class handouts). We'll cover the following:  - the science behind soap making, saponification, & other important soap terms like super-fatting & curing - lye information & safety (read more below: "Safety First!") & a brief history of soap making - the materials and ingredients needed and where to get them - how to formulate a soap recipe based on your needs (e.g. dry skin, sensitive skin), using a very handy online soap calculator - making & customizing your soap and what to do at home afterwards Formulating a balanced recipe is the most important part of soap making, so my goal is for you to go home feeling very capable & comfortable with the intricacies of the soap calculator.   Go home with 2 customized products!  In class, you will: - choose 2 recipes that are best for your skin type (e.g. more conditioning or bubbly) - make 8 oz. of cold-process, bar soap, customized with your choice of essential oils and silicone mold, which you can keep and reuse (2-3 bars, depending on the mold); add other additives to your soap, if desired (honey for extra conditioning, amaranth for exfoliation) - make 28-30 fl oz. of liquid soap, customized with your choice of essential oils  Note that it takes at least 2 weeks for the cold-process soap to cure and be ready for use.  It will be hard to wait, but well worth it!  Then, you'll be ready to make your next batch of soap - it's addictive!  Your liquid soap will be ready for use after 24 hours.   You'll also go home with 12 total soap recipes and thorough, step-by-step instructional handouts, including ingredients, lye info, recipes using liquid soap (e.g. face wash, dish soap), materials/equipment & suppliers.   Everything is provided in the class, as well as some snacks & tea. You must wear closed-toe shoes, a long-sleeved shirt and pants to this class. Safely First! Since lye, NaOH & KOH, is used in the Soap Making Workshop, you will be provided the best safety equipment for the class. A common question: is lye necessary for soap making? Yes! A base is needed with one hydroxide ion, so Sodium Hydroxide & Potassium Hydroxide are used...And lye has many other uses as well! But, don't worry, there is no lye in the final product due to the chemical reaction that takes place between the carrier oils and the lye, which is converted into salt! My goal is for you to understand what lye is, how to handle lye & to respect lye, not fear it! Come to class to learn more about lye, including its history & many other uses! This class lasts about 4 hours & is available for up to 2 people. Beeswax lip balm making can be added for $15/person & bath bomb making can be added for $20/person. Contact Lindsay if interested and if you have any questions. I hope to meet you soon! What makes Lindsay's DIY (Do-It-Yourself) classes unique? Much more goes into making natural, personal care products than you might think. It's a science! So it is very important that you understand why you are doing something, not just how to do something. Each class begins with discussing the science behind making the product, why certain ingredients are needed & formulating recipes, which is often the hardest part. Then it's time for the hands-on part, making the product with me as your guide. My goals are for you to have fun learning something new & making your product, and that you leave the class with a solid, knowledge foundation that you can build upon.

About

Hi, my name is Lindsay. I am the former owner of Blue Dot Organics based out of San Francisco. I taught a variety of large-group classes in the making of soap, candles, lotion, lip balm and various other body and household natural products. I closed this business in the fall of 2014 and traveled abroad with my husband. We returned to Pacifica, California in the fall of 2015 and I began teaching again, but on a smaller scale until May of 2016. My husband was offered a job in Long Beach; so since July of 2016, I have been offering private classes, as well as semi-private classes on my online calendar, for up to 2 people per class on Ocean Blvd. You can enjoy an informative, fun class tailored to you in a relaxed atmosphere. My Soap Making & Teaching Background: I have been making & learning about natural, body-care products since 2012, when I took my first soap-making class with my sister-in-law in Quincy, Massachusetts. It was so fun that I immediately moved on to lotion, candles, bath bombs & more! I had been a teacher long before learning how to make natural products though, so when I moved to San Francisco in 2013, I decided to mesh my 2 specialty areas and open Blue Dot Organics. I have taught in various capacities ever since I graduated with a Bachelor's in Education in 2006, but I prefer the small-group setting for a more personal experience and so you can get the most out of the class! I hope to meet you soon!
