SFA Gardens to host herbal soap seminarPosted on : August 23, 2016
NACOGDOCHES, Texas — Stephen F. Austin State University’s SFA Gardens will host a soap-making workshop from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 10, in Room 101 of the Ina Brundrett Conservation Education Building at the SFA Pineywoods Native Plant Center, 2900 Raguet St.
The Gifts from the Garden workshop will be led by Elyce Rodewald, SFA Gardens education coordinator. Participants will use the cold-press method of soap making and will take home samples of luxurious soap they create.
“The soap will be made from coconut and palm kernel oil, lye, essential oils and dried herbs,” Rodewald said. “Participants will learn the step-by-step process of soap making, so they have the skills to make soap at home on their own. This is great soap. Once you use it, you’ll never go back to store-bought soap.”
