Have you ever wanted to make your own all natural soap like your ancestors did? We will make a batch of buttermilk and cornmeal soap with a light orange and honey scent from all natural ingredients (many you already have in your home). You will make enough to have about 12 3 oz bars. Buttermilk is a wonderful cleanser for your face and cornmeal is a natural exfoliant. We will make this soap over 2 classes to give the soap time to cure and harden.
