September 10th - SOAP MAKING

I am thankful for interest in our first ever series of workshops of the year.

THE INTENTION: Together, we will learn how to create an organic cold process soap through a hands-on experience. 

In this workshop we will be creating 22 ounces of organic cold process soap. Cold process soap is created with several components: oils and butters, sodium hydroxide, water and essential oil as well as add-ins. Add-ins consist of plant matter such as lavender buds or powdered peppermint leaf, but they can also be clay or minerals. 

Cold process soap is made with raw, unadulterated ingredients that are not heated or processed in any way. For this workshop participants will have the option of choosing from organic essential oils of lavender, tea tree, or lemongrass. You may also choose to craft a natural scented soap. There will be add-ins such as organic lavender bud powder or organic ground coffee.

The soap created in this class takes 4 to 6 weeks to cure. This process must be complete before use, failure to acknowledge this could result in skin irritation. No worries, though, I will guide you though this process and be present (virtually) to check in with you. 

Components of the soap entail filtered water, coconut oil, olive oil, shea butter, castor oil,  your choice essential oil, and sodium hydroxide (none remains after soap has cured). 

 WHAT YOU WILL YOU LEARN: 

  • Learn the healing properties of butters and oils and their benefits.
  • Gain understanding of how to work with plants in your cold process soap and how to get the most out of them.
  • A brief history of soap making as well as helpful insights tips and tricks.
  • Why cold process is more beneficial than hot process soap.

 

September 17th - DO IT YOURSELF DEODORANT

THE INTENTION: As a group, we will explore how to craft a harmful chemical free deodorant that doesn't clog pores or prevent perspiration but rather assists in detoxification and reduces odor. 

In this workshop, we will create our own 1.3 oz deodorant and custom label. For our natural deodorant we will use mango butter, magnesium, plant powders and waxes, as well as essential oils. We will have the option of adding clay for its numerous benefits in which we will explore. For this workshop we will be working with the essential oils of Tea Tree, Lavender and Lime.

The deodorant can be used as soon as it hardens completely within the sustainable push up vessel that we will be utilizing.

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN:

  • Learn why conventional deodorant can be harmful and what solutions are available to us. 
  • Learn how to create a simple deodorant solution
  • We will learn what active ingredients assist in the efficacy of plant powered deodorant.

 

September 24th - BODY BUTTER MAKING

THE INTENTION:  As a class, we will be creating our own emollient that will protect and coat our skin for the final days of summer and through the fall and winter. We will create a recipe that we can replicate when needed.

In this workshop we will craft our own 3 oz body butter to take home with you. You will work with mango butter, shea butter, castor oil, passionfruit seed oil, avocado seed oil, olive oil as well essential oils of vanilla, lavender, lemon, and cedar-wood. 

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?

  • The difference between lotion and body butter, why the latter is supreme.
  • The benefits of natural oils and butters for the skin.
  • You will choose your own custom combination of oils and butters to formulate your own, intuitively crafted, body butter.  

WHAT WILL YOU GAIN?  In each workshop, you will receive everything you need to create a healing, organic skincare. You receive access to all the tools, the ingredients, the safety gear, as well as the recipe and guidance from me, La'Aura. The ingredients will be exact and none will be remaining for another batch. Thankfully the recipe (with exact measurements) will be yours to work with and transform. Thus, you may create another batch with ease. 

You will also have all your questions regarding the process answered, so please come prepared with questions. 

WHERE: Eternile Garden, Bronx, New York, [10467]
