RECIPE

250 grms crystal clear soap base

4 drops of orange colouring

14 drops of sweet orange essential oil

surgical spirit spray

golden glitter

You can get all ingredients above from bomar.ie  

This soapmaking method is easy and fun but often these ready made base soaps are not fully natural , make sure you read list of ingredients before you buy them. The less ingredients the better. I much prefer traditional cold process soap but you need to use a hazardous ingredient -sodium hidroxide- which is not recommended for children use.

But this soapmaking practice allow children to use their creativity and making something functional at the same time.

Soapmaking is a great skill you can teach your children to encourage not buying toxic soaps from the stores.

I am running a FREE taster class on this soapmaking practice for children from 8 years old accompanied by an adult on Friday the 3rd of November 2017 from 11 am -1 pm . I have already 6 children coming with their mums. If you want to register please send me an email to mayfertosatgmail.com or give me a call 0876400010 . Places are limited. Location: Dublin 15
