AUGUST CLASSES AT THE FARM

We had a set-back in our July classes but the two classes we did have were a lot of fun for the participants. We held two soap classes and went over the basics of how to make Goat's Milk Soap. This super-fatted soap is luxurious and creamy. Everyone learned how to do it from scratch, using goats milk, coconut oil, olive oil, lavender essential oil and lye. Some of us added amendments like coffee grounds or calendula petals. Our second class added honey.


Finished Soaps - so pretty
