Franschhoek Wine Valley

Soapmaking Workshop at Babylonstoren

Cost : R700 p.p.

Date : 04 September 2019

Time : 10:00 – 15:00

Presented by Bev Missing / Maranda Engelbrecht

Please meet us at the Farm Shop


We are joined by Bev Missing, brand founder of Rain and author of The Rain Book of Natural Soapmaking. She shares with us the artisanal art of soapmaking using natural ingredients that are readily available in the home kitchen.
We will work with essential oils that are extracted on our farm – rosemary, lavender and rose geranium. As is the case with most of our workshops, we’ll take a leisurely walk through our formal garden. This time, we’ll take a look at where and how these three herbs grow in our garden. Then we’ll make our way to the distillery and watch how one of them is being distilled.
You will be making your own individual soaps to take home, so please bring along an old hand towel.
