During two-hour classes, Fusion Botanicals’ soapsmiths introduce groups to the art of creating soaps and bubble baths from natural, aromatic ingredients. In small groups, adults and kids can shape three or four scented body scrubs, bath bombs, or perfumes to throw into neighbors’ pools. Melt and pour soap from all-natural ingredients or produce bubble bath in the Strawberry Champagne Experience, or craft floral bath bombs in fairy-tale-themed Pixie Family Experience. Attendees return home with freshly crafted cleansers in hand, along with printed recipes to refer to when crafting personalized soaps.
Owner Jennifer Schroeder began crafting her own all-natural products in high school and, one career later, now heads a team of skincare mavens who give kitchen chemists the tools to create their own spa experiences. Demonstration lectures form a compact introduction to a single process and leave students with a product sample to take home and touch up aging portraits of great-great-grandparents, and workshops plunge all hands into the fundamentals of gel-based anti-aging serums, exfoliating sugar scrubs, or herbal soaps. The small-group classes focus on practicable skills and include recipes for home use, enabling perpetual plant-based pampering.
