Learn how to make your own soaps from a basic recipe. You’ll learn to create a large variety of soaps using various herbs, clays, natural colours, base oils, honey, essential oils and milk. We’ll look at the ingredients in commercial bath products and learn how they affect our health.
Create your own shampoo, hair conditioner and lots more.
