Soap Making is Chemistry, Baby

Poem at Otion's Cold Process Soapmaking Class

Poem and I took a cold process soapmaking class at Otion on Saturday. I like working with the Palm and Coconut bases and especially like the Shea butter. Picking out the fragrance oils and adding the mica and oxide coloring powders is the most creative part. The lye beads are a little scary. I am really sensitive to cleaning agents and when I began to scrape the lye/water mixture, I couldn’t stop coughing. If I decide to start making soap, I am going to have to do that part out on the deck where the toxic fumes won’t be a problem.

    That was fun, and I can’t wait for my hippie scented soap to be ready. I must admit I was a bit intimidated at first when he started talking chemistry and stuff, but I really enjoyed it. Thanks for inviting me sista!

    Tie dye party next?
