In this intensive and face-to-face workshop we will learn to:
- Make natural soap with recycled oil, not only for making household cleaning products, but also for making toilet soap. For this, the cleaning and deodorization processes of the oil will be explained, as well as the techniques of adding new oil to the over-greasing to care for the skin.
- Prepare natural soaps with different vegetable oils, working on decorative techniques with natural pigments. We will also work with essential oils from Castilla La Mancha to give aroma and provide properties to the soap.
The student will take home:
- A natural toilet soap with a rustic design with two colors and decorated with a dried plant.
- A natural soap enriched with white clay and locally produced organic lavender essential oil. Which we will elaborate with a decorative technique in which we will use pigments of mineral and natural origin.
- A natural soap enriched with a synergy of Castilian Manchego essential oils, based on knowledge of the region's ethnobotany. This soap will be in the shape of a stone and will be decorated with natural oxides that will give it the color of the landscape of the Montes de Toledo.
- A handmade soap dish from Alhaja Cerámica, which, together with the elaborate soaps, will be the center of attention in your bathroom. It can also be a perfect gift for a special person.
