Hot in the City: Soap Making in NYC

While most of the country is under a heat wave, New York City is no exception. Temps soared close to 100 degrees yesterday. But that didn't stop 12 energetic students from learning to make cold process soap on the Upper West Side last night. We cranked up the air conditioning, and cranked out close to 40 lbs. of handmade soap formulated with organic oil goodness!

Three sisters the island of Dominica flew in from to join the class. They are opening a soap business there this year. Other students came from all over the U.S. to learn tricks of the trade for business and personal use.

In addition to making soap, we discussed recipe formulations, safety precautions, the best molds to use, sourcing ingredients, liability insurance, water discounting, fragrance tips, essential oil blending and more.
