Natural Soap Making
The beneficial properties of olive oil are widely recognised, but people often underestimate its value as a cosmetic product. Olive oil has regenerative and moisturising properties, as well as therapeutic ones. It is used as the basic ingredient in natural soaps, together with raw materials such as essential oils and herbal extracts, many of which can easily be sourced at home.
During the first part of the workshop you will travel on a journey through the history of soap, learn tips and tricks about soap making and discover the correlation between herbs, essential oils and olive oil. In the second part, you will put to use your theoretical knowledge and create your own natural olive oil soaps from start to finish, using traditional techniques. Finally, you will have the opportunity to decorate your soaps with natural products and fibres, before safely storing them to solidify their final form.
