What you'll do
Learn the basics of soapmaking in a fully-equipped, professional soapmaking facility! Apothecary Muse will host a hands-on class blending science and art for the soap hobbyist. Students will use all plant-based materials, learn safe handling practices, the basics of plant chemistry and fatty acid profiles. All materials and equipment provided by Apothecary Muse, students will take home a small batch of the soap they made with instructions for cutting into bars at home.
I'm the owner of Apothecary Muse and have been practicing soapmaking for almost 20 years, achieving increasing levels of HSCG certification including teaching, and launching my business in 2013. My professional history includes mtb coaching, sports nutrition, advocacy and retail management with an emphasis for doing all things with a triple bottom line (people, planet, profit). My current aim with soapmaking juxtaposes everyday sustainability with traditional practices, and my products are distributed around the USA wherever outdoor adventurers are found.
