Teaching Aspiring Students at Newton Green Bodycare and Soap Making Classes

Recently I taught a Green Bodycare and Soap Making classes through Newton Adult Community Education at Newton South High School. These students were fantastic! They embraced the creation of natural bodycare and soap with ease!

This class of 20 students (some of them pictured above) made organic sugar scrubs, organic sea salt soaks, organic glycerin soap, and all-natural body balms. Students came from all over the Boston area. Newton Adult Community Education offers an in-depth course catalog quarterly, and classes are well-attended.

I also taught a Glycerin Handmade Soap. It was completely full, with 15 students!

Want to join me for a fabulous fun time? You can sign up for my summer classes in Newton here. Sign up with a friend and enjoy a wonderful evening with other inspiring creatives! You'll take home lots of products that you make yourself in both classes:

July 9, 6-9 p.m. Totally Green Organic Bodycare
Learn how to make natural and organic body-care products. You'll create and take home a dozen items: two exfoliating body scrubs, two luxurious body balms, four moisturizing soap bars, and four sea-salt bath soaks. These make great birthday gifts—or keep them for yourself (we won't tell). We'll cover the art of aromatherapy, how to blend essential oils, and which ingredients to use on your body and which to avoid. You'll also take home recipes, so you can make these fragrant and healthful products on your own. The class is $49 with a $25 materials fee payable the night of the class.

July 16, 6-9 p.m. Handmade Glycerin Soap
Make an array of beautiful, moisturizing soaps. We'll cover the essentials of glycerin soapmaking, with lots of hands-on learning, including how to use molds and add fragrance, color, shea butter and other moisturizing oils, herbs, and exfoliants. Each student will make three personalized batches of soap to take home. If you have sensitive skin, you'll learn how to make unscented soaps. This class is a great gift for a friend—or yourself. The class is $49 with an $18 materials fee is payable the night of the class.

Here are some of the beautiful soaps that students made in class:

Newton South offers great classrooms. In both spring classes, we made ourselves at home in one of the science labs. It was perfect because students grouped together at one of the six lab stations.
