Simple Castile Cold Process Soap Tutorial
According to The Soap Queen, cold process soap made with 100% olive oil is known as "Castile" Soap, The name of the soap is thought to be originated in the Castile region of Spain. Olive oil is a staple in many cold process recipes which contributes moisturizing properties to a bar of soap. It also gives the bar of soap a gentle and creamy later which makes it a great choice for dry or sensitive skin. If you would like to learn how to make Castile Soap, read this recent posting from The Soap Queen called Simple Castile Cold Process Soap Tutorial.
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.
