Cold Process Herbal Soapmaking Workshop

Cold Process Herbal Soapmaking Workshop @ Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture

Cold Process Herbal Soapmaking Handmade soap is a traditional craft that dates back to ancient times and across cultures. Learn the cold process method using pure plant based oils, beneficial herbs and clays and pure essential oils. Customize your soap with ingredients that are beneficial for particular skin types. We will explore a variety of plants and minerals that can be used for their therapeutic properties as well as fragrance, color and exfoliation.

Each participant will craft and take home two bars of soap, along with the information and resources to make your own soap at home. Liz Scholl is a certified Master Herbalist and owner of Blue Lotus Botanicals Herbal Apothecary, a line of beneficial, herbal products for the body made from locally sourced and organically grown ingredients. She has taught at the New York Botanical Garden, Frelinghuysen Arboretum and many adult schools in the NYC area.

Where do you go to build your advocacy strength?  To learn some skills, have an opportunity to do even some small things to make the world better, to be with others? To plan how to get involved in actions?

Now there’s a new answer: join us every other Wednesday at the Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture for an evening of action. Come anytime between 6-9 and stay for as long as you can!. We’ll have projects to do each week — write a letter or email, make a sign, call someone who represents you, etc. — and also share stories of what we’ve each done and want to do.  We might have an article to read or a short video playing to learn more about an issue.

Feel free to bring your children. We will have no childcare but kids are welcome.

Any voluntary donations are split between sustaining the costs of using the space, and contributing to a different organization each week.
