As promised, here are some pictures from my liquid soap class yesterday. We started a batch from scratch and the class got to dilute, color and fragrance their own mini batches of liquid soap to take home. Wondering about how to make Liquid Soap yourself? Here is a downloadable handy e-book.
Here, I’m demonstrating that the liquid soap still needs to cook some more using phenophthalein to test the pH. The chemical turns the soap hot pink (maybe that’s why I like this demonstration so much).
Here’s the happy class scenting customizing their liquid soaps.
After a long (but soaper’ific!) day, Erin (from Naiad Soaps – our Melt and Pour Instructor Extraordinare) and I needed to wind down so we fished peacefully on Lake Samish. It was the perfect end to a whirlwind day of soaping. I’ll post more pictures and details of the weekend next week.
Right now it’s time for graduation; certificates and cupcakes are calling my name.

I am so happy that I got too see you do the liquid soap again! The students seemed super excited about learning it! It was a fun day and certainly a wonderful evening at the lake as well!
Looks like lots of fun. Maybe I should try your class next time. 😀
You sure know how to fill your day with meaningful and fun tasks! I can’t wait to try making liquid soap.
Okay, I’ve been wondering if liquid soap needs a preservative since it has water in it. Let me know!
Sounds like so much fun!! Wish I lived closer……
