Herbal Soaps, Salts & Soothing Salves Workshop

Haliburton School of Art + Design

Enrol in Herbal Soaps, Salts & Soothing Salves Workshop

Course Code: ARTS2277

With increasing concern for chemical build-up within our bodies, this workshop provides information as well as numerous techniques and recipes for making various body products that feature the virtues of nature and simplicity. These include herbs, essential oils, vegetable oils, beeswax, and other pantry items, which can produce gentle, effective, and impressive alternatives to commercially prepared consumables. Learn cold-process soap-making from scratch, and experiment with customizing meltable organic soap bases to suit your preferences. A discussion on essential oils, safety, and oil profiles will preface their use during the workshop. Recipes for making petroleum-free lip balms in tubes and pots, as well as healing herbal salves for soothing skin complaints, will provide insight into how infused vegetable and 'carrier' oils can nourish and soothe skin, ease tense muscles, and aid symptoms of colds and flu. Additionally, you will gain an understanding of the benefits of various salts and how they can be used for the bath and body for holistic benefit. Although the cold-process soap making will be done in demonstration format, a pre-measured kit will make it easy to replicate the demo done in class. Hands-on projects include customized soap bars, lip balms in tubes and jars, herbal salves, bath salts, bath bombs, foot nuggets, and body scrubs.

Some courses require additional textbooks and/or materials. Please visit your campus bookstore in-person or online: Peterborough Bookstore or Lindsay Bookstore.
