Since I took a class on how to make solid sugar cube scrubs I have always made them with a melt and pour soap base. Rebecca Dillion from Soap Deli News created a recipe that does not include a melt and pour soap base since she found that alot of her readers were fond of bath and beauty products that were completely natural and organic. In this post called Natural Lemon Verbena Bath Melts and Solid Sugar Scrubs, Rebecca shares two fantastic recipes.
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.
