Making Soap with Jedwards Employees: Talking Handmade Soap & Organic Trends

I received an email about a month ago to teach a soap making class to a group of employees at Jedwards in Quincy, Massachusetts. At that time I wasn't familiar with the company.

Little did I know that Jedwards is also known as Wow. How did I miss this one?

For all of your local soap makers in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and even Connecticut, here is a money saving tip for you! You can place your order in advance on their website and confirm pickup. Their prices are incredibly competitive - and you save on shipping!

Jedwards has a vast variety of soap making supplies. They are even organic certified. From coconut oil to Babasou, you'll be amazed at the variety of oils they carry. Lotion and candle makers will be thrilled to know that they also carry beeswax in several varieties.

The class of eight students made two batches of cold process soap using palm oil, coconut oil and olive oil - all provided by Jedwards. Both batches traced perfectly and they added lemongrass essential oil to one, and Bulgarian lavender to the other. While waiting for the soap to traced we discussed trends in the handmade soap industry as well as organic trends.

If your company would like to learn how to make cold process soap, lotions, balms, scrubs, or any bath and body product, please
email me. You can sign up for my newsletter as well.
