The advantage of making your own soaps is that you control what goes in them, which is one of the reasons why handmade soaps are so much better. In this advanced workshop, you will learn how to colour your soap using only natural ingredients, such as herbs, roots, and spices. We will also discuss the benefits and properties of herbs, plants, clays and other natural additives, how to use and prepare them, and how to add them to your soaps. There will be focus on native and non-native plants and herbs available in New Zealand, that you can either forage in the wild or grow in your garden.
Includes ingredients, detailed notes and a practical session. Each participant will go home with their own handmade herbal soap.
Note: This is an advanced workshop. Participants need to have either done the basic cold pressed soap making workshop, or have experience in the cold pressed soap making technique.
