Have you ever wanted to learn how to make cold processed soap?  Cold processed soap is simply the blending of oils (and essential oils) with a water/lye solution.  The blending of these two types of liquid begins a process of turning the oils to a solid that will lather, and offer cleaning qualities.  We are so pleased to announce that a two week long class will be offered at Art House, located in the Brooklyn Center neighborhood of the west side of Cleveland.

When:  Thursday, March 6 and 13  6:30-8:30pm

Where:  Art House, located at 3119 Denison Avenue,  Cleveland Ohio

Cost:  $50.oo  – the student will make a 1 pound loaf of soap, and several jars of salt scrub.  All supplies will be included, and the student will go home with their own 1 pound mold for future use, along with several recipes.

1 pound mold will yield 4-5 bars of soap.  Please note – because this is a chemical process you should use caution when working with the liquid blending, and the soap itself requires a 4 week cure time before use.  Using the soap before this might mean that the soap pH level is not totally neutralized by the curing process.

  • I have always wanted to make cold pressed soap in order to use my bees’ beeswax in it. I’ve never found a recipe which incorporates beeswax. I wish I could attend your class and pick your brain.

    • Bees Wax works wonderfully with some of our softer formulas… such as the olive oil only (castele soap) to help harden the soap a bit. We noticed the bees wax adds a nice light scent to the formula too… and it is just wonderful on the skin. Where do you live?

    • you can also melt beeswax with coconut oil and shea butter in equal amounts and pour the warmed blended liquid into molds for a body butter bar… it will melt at skin temperature. (We make this only i nthe cold months because in the warm heat of summer it is a puddle.)
