Cold Process Lavender Soap Making

*This class takes place at Denver Botanic Gardens’ Chatfield Farms located at C-470 & Wadsworth and is a seminar at the 2016 Lavender Festival*

 

In this class you’ll learn how easy it is to make cold process soap in your own kitchen! Homemade soap contains moisturizing glycerin and is free of the harsh preservatives and other chemicals found in commercial soaps that can be so drying and irritating to skin. You'd never believe that soap making was this easy! Warning: soap making is addictive, but you'll never lack for a birthday, hostess, or shower gift for families and friends. You'll see several ways to make luscious lavender soap. This class is part demo, part hands on. Take home an extensive handout full of recipes, web sites, and resources, plus some of the handmade soap and a bottle of the finest French lavender essential oil for your first batch.
