I recently taught a soap making class. It was so much fun! A group of local home school Mom’s and a few of their kids got together for a time of fellowship and learning.
I am not really sure who learned more, me or them. That’s the funny thing about being a speaker, you go in expecting to teach, but come out having been a student.
Even if it’s something you have been doing for years, like making your own soap.
I would do it again in a heart beat.
We spent the entire night discussing soap bases, herbs and essential oils. We debated about different chemicals in the bases, what’s good, what’s not. We even googled a few technical terms for clarification.
It was a blast.
We experimented with new molds, tested new soap bases, mixed beautiful new colors and tried out new experimental techniques.
The results were beautiful.
They smelled even better than they looked.
My favorite soap of the night was this Confetti Soap.
It’s not at all complicated.
The basic soap has a combination of 3 Butters, Mango, Shea and Cocoa butter. It’s the first time I have used this product, and I love the way it moisturizes my dry winter skin.
The beautiful color comes from adding chopped up bits of Glycerin Soap that I made previously.
We simply chopped the soaps into little pieces and added them to the white liquid soap base when it was poured into the mold.
How easy is that?
I had been working on this little Confetti Wash Towel as well, here’s the DIY Knitted Dish Towel Pattern. I thought it would be fun to use the two Confetti items together.
Homemade is beautiful, don’t you think?
