Workshop teaches residents to make their own scented soaps


Special to The Sun

OKLA. CITY — Oklahomans who would like to learn to use herbs, flowers and essential oils to make their own signature soaps are invited to attend a “Soap Making Workshop” offered at the Oklahoma County OSU Cooperative Extension office from 9:30-11:30 a.m. April 23.

Residents will learn to mix their own soap ingredients, then choose their own exotic oils, flowers or other scents to make one-of-a-kind soaps and scrubs.

After completing the workshop, participants will take home a pound of soap and their own mold.

Charlette and Dan Hayer, proprietors of the Laughing Rabbit Soap brand, will be teaching the class, which is co-sponsored by the Oklahoma County OSU Cooperative Extension Service.

The workshop will be at the Oklahoma County OSU Cooperative Extension Center auditorium, at 930 N. Portland in Oklahoma City. Pre-registration cost for the workshop is $30 and is due by April 19.
