|July 18 Thursday: Making Soaps|
Our upcoming Third Thursday class will be about making soaps and shampoos. We will make a soap from scratch, as well as melt soaps and fold in herbs and essential oils to make a milled soap. We sample lotion bars and shampoo bars, and will even sample some shampoos made from leaves and roots! We will talk kitchen chemistry too. You will have recipes, handouts and soaps to take home and enjoy.

When:July 21 from noon till 2pm officially, but if folks want to stay around and sip and snack afterwards that would be fun.
