Rose Clay and Madder Root Powder Cold Process Soap
When The Nova Studio was having their studio sale, I wound up purchasing some clays and powders to color my cold process soaps. I have been using ultramaries, etc. to color my soaps and I wanted to try clays and powders in my soap. I was really not sure how much to use so I was looking for any recipes that included clays or powders that use these ingredients. I have not try using them yet, but I did find a cold process soap recipe from Lovin' Soap that uses rose clay and madder root. The posting is called Rose Clay and Madder Root Powder Cold Process that looks really interesting.
I have a B.A. in Mass Communication and took my first melt and pour soapmaking class in 2002. Since then I got hooked making my own bath and products. I have taken various courses in Soapmaking (Melt & Pour, Cold Process, Hot Process), lotion making (lotions, creams, lotion sticks), bath products (bath salts, body scrubs), body products (lip balm, body butters, body balms, whipped butters) and more. Most of all of my classes were taught by Lori Nova of The Nova Studio in Point Richmond, Ca. I have taught courses since 2004 at various locations. I have worked as an Event Coordinator at Michaels Redwood City.
