suds with buds: DIY healthy & healing soaps

  • urban bazaar 1371 9th ave san francisco, ca 94122 usa (map)

we're so sorry, but this class needs to be postponed.   please check back, for the new date!  sorry about that....  :(


    join us for an evening of practical magic as you turn lye and vegetable oils into luscious and healthy soap scented with essential oils. save yourself a trip to the drugstore and upgrade your next shower with a custom bar. remember: lather, rinse, repeat.


    the process is surprisingly simple: three to four ingredients that you can pronounce, plus add your own scent so that you know exactly what you're putting on your body. you'll also mix up a batch of homemade lavender (or unscented) laundry detergent and go home with a bit of simply made liquid soap.


    talk about the different carrier oils to choose from, how to use calculators and equations to always safely mix lye with your oils, as well as how to add various nutrients and infused herbs for special bars. 

special workshop treat: workshop students receive 10% off any purchases made in the store that day, for taking the workshop! 

and fyi, parking can be tricky on weeknights and weekends!   please consider taking muni, as are right off the n judah muni line.

cost: $50 (all materials included)
