Learn how to make soap from scratch! The wonderful, natural soaps you see at specialty stores and farmer’s markets, are really not that hard to make. We will use natural plant based oils and butter oils … to make beautiful, creamy lathering soaps that incorporate essential oils and botanicals and feel good on your skin. Soaping is a really fun craft to learn that can easily become your next passion. We will go over the process, get familiar with the equipment needed, learn about different oils, safety with working with lye (sodium hydroxide) and how to create and make a formula, working with colorant, fragrance and essential oils.
Kim Kent is an innovator of natural bath & body products whose Chesilhurst Farm brand has been featured at Artists & Fleas, the Abbot Kinney Festival and as a featured local artist at Hallmark Westside Pavilion. Her products can currently be found on Etsy. This Santa Monica-based artist offers workshops for individuals interested in healthy skin with aromatherapy scents to de-stress the mind and lift the spirit. Her products are infused with only the most skin-loving local ocean and imported ingredients, as well as coastal botanicals. Her body products holistically nourish the body from hair-to-toe. The sun-drenched, laid-back California lifestyle is her muse, and healing ingredients her science.
