Are you interested in soap making? Have you ever wanted to make you own soap bars? Do you ever imagine what it would be like to mix you own scents - Lavender, Eucalyptus, Lemongrass or Frankincense and come up with the dream soap bar of your choice? Do you wonder how we get those swirly colors in the bar? Well this is your chance! Come and attend one of Herbal Harlem’s Soap Making Master class in Uptown Manhattan and leave with ONE DREAM SOAP BAR that you can created. Yes, one STUNNING soap bar for you all nicely wrapped and packed. (Soap bars will be shipped out after 10 days of curing/drying.) At the Herbal Harlem, Soap Making Master class we will welcome you with a delicious cup of smooth, aromatic Kenyan AA coffee, a delicious piece of chocolate cake with chocolate frosting drizzled with lemon, u u so delicious and an ambiance of jazz music. To start you get to wear gloves like a Pro, and a vibrant African Apron, patched with African fabrics and made exclusively by Women in Kenya. We will then start mixing in the colors, blend in the oils with Lye and watch SAPONIFICATION happen right in front of us. As we wait for the soap butter to thicken, we will sip some goodness with grapes, brie cheese and crackers as we wait for the soap butter to thicken ! Then comes the fun part, mixing in the colours and swirling them into each other to create the design we want.
Guests to the soap making class will have cappuccino or latte or tea with a piece of chocolate cake drizzled with lemon…
Hello there and welcome to Herbal Harlem, Uptown Manhattan’s premier soap making boutique shop! My name is Nkatha and just like you soap making started with pure creative curiosity. I wanted to know, how is soap made? That journey 2 years later led me to new adventures and what I call a YoutubePreneur. After watching a few videos, I turned this hobby into a fully fledged business and now supplies both boutique, bodega, supermarket and beauty parlors with soap. So welcome to Herbal Harlem.Here we will explore, work together and make new discoveries using all the fun oils we have.
This could be as random and as creative as you want it to be. We then pour the soap butter into all of Herbal Harlem’s fancy moulds. These include flowers, lady bugs, ginger bread people, butterflies, Christmas trees, Grumpy faces or just Soap bars. Herbal Harlem’s soap recipe includes olive, castor and coconut oils with an addition of vitamin E, Jojoba and Avocado oil. Our soap takes 12-24 hours to dry up. We work in my home Soaping Studio.
I got you covered. For further questions ASK - for customized experiences and times with a group of friends or special moments, ocassions or events like bridal showers, birthdays or dates.
