What you'll do

After a small brief theory and safety instruction we will start our journey with the art of making olive oil soaps in Crete since ancient years. We will discuss the multiple uses of olive oil soaps and why is very important to learn how you can make your own natural soap. We will explore the world of the ingredients such us essential oils, dried herbs, clays and all the natural and ethically sourced ingredients that can be added to make the soaps more cleansing, exfoliating or nourishing. After this we'll start to work together in order to make the soap bar according to the cold process method. At the end of the workshop you will take a soap bar as souvenir.

Katerina

My name is Katerina and I am the owner of a cottage industry called ‘’Cretan Olive House’’. My need for natural products with zero waste and my love for the Cretan tradition was the reasons that forced me to create my own soaps 15 years ago. That was the beginning of a journey in the world of soap. Since then the most relaxing thing for me is to place myself in my workshop and start playing with herbs, essential oils and natural ingredients in order to create my own soap and shared with my beloved people. For my soaps I use only extra virgin olive oil from our family trees and handpicked herbs from the land of Crete. My workshop located in a small building in the garden of my house.It would be my pleasure to welcome you in a journey of knowledge with the traditional way of making soap with the best raw ingredients of the Cretan land!
