Feb 19th Speaker: David Brookshire
Subject: Crafting Cold-Process Soap
David's fascination with beekeeping traces back to his Boy Scouts days in 1958 when he earned the Beekeeping merit badge. Despite a hiatus of nearly 50 years due to work commitments, his intrigue with insects, particularly honeybees, persisted. In 2010, with more time on his hands, he rekindled his passion for beekeeping and has been an enthusiastic beekeeper ever since.
Approximately 4 or 5 years ago, David delved into soap-making as a winter project, providing a creative outlet when outdoor beekeeping activities were limited. It didn't take long for him to realize the exciting potential of incorporating hive products into soap formulations, elevating the enjoyment of the craft.
Join us Monday, Feb 19, as David shares his expertise in crafting a cold-process soap infused with the therapeutic qualities of tea tree oil, the purifying effects of activated charcoal, and the nourishing properties of honey.
