ABOUT THIS EVENT
Learn how to make your own organic soap with Blue Dot Organics in San Francisco!
In this 3-hour class, you will be guided through the entire process of soap making using the cold process method: choosing your ingredients (organic oils, butters & essential oils), determining your recipe on a soap calculator, safety procedures and making your soap. You will go home with 1 lb. of soap and the silicone mold of your choice (6-8 bars, depending on the mold). Note that it takes 2.5 weeks for the soap to cure and be ready for use. You must wear closed-toe shoes, a long-sleeve shirt and pants to this class.
The other benefits of taking this class:
*Go home with full-size products that you've made and a detailed handout with recipes, ingredient information & instructions
*The benefits of the various ingredients will be discussed (e.g. oils, butters, clays, herbs, salts, teas, essential oils) so you can customize the products based on your needs and preferences
*The ingredients are certified organic, ethically wild-harvested, Kosher, gluten-free, vegan and/or untreated
*Use of all preparation and safety materials - You do not need to bring anything! Just have fun!
*The class is capped at four people for a more personal experience.

MORE ABOUT YOUR HOST
Lindsay Roulusonis is the owner of Blue Dot Organics, a small business located in San Francisco. She grew up in Augusta, Georgia, which is where she began learning about natural products and their benefits. Since then, she has gradually made them more and more a part of her life for her family’s health.
The more she learns about what goes into our food and products, global warming, and corporate irresponsibility, the more she turns to organic choices that are sustainable, environmentally-friendly, and socially-responsible. Changing your lifestyle takes effort though; this desire pushed her into learning about organic products, the benefits of herbs, oils, butters, etc., and DIY recipes.
She took her first DIY class in Boston, Massachusetts with her sister-in-law, and of course loved it! Why not share the knowledge? So, as you can see, she has started this business to offer organic products and DIY classes. She loves the small group setting; Lindsay has a Bachelor's in Education and has been tutoring one-on-one and small groups in various subjects for 10 years.
Outside of the business, Lindsay loves reading, bicycling, yoga, red wine, traveling, the beach and now riding up and down the west coast on her motorcycle! Her husband, Robert, and she travel as much as they can, and before moving to San Francisco, they lived in Pamplona, Spain and Boston, Massachusetts. They are very happy to be in San Francisco, though; the quality of life is sky-high, the people are friendly and helpful, the landscape is gorgeous and the views are spectacular!
