Hi, my name is Lindsay.  I am the former owner of Blue Dot Organics based out of San Francisco & started in 2013.  I taught a variety of large-group classes in the making of soap, candles, lotion, lip balm and various other body & household, natural products.  I closed this business in the fall of 2014 and traveled abroad with my husband.  We returned to Pacifica, California in the fall of 2015 and I began teaching again, but on a smaller scale until May of 2016.  My husband was offered a job in Long Beach; so since July of 2016, I have been offering private classes, as well as small-group classes on my online calendar, for 1-4 people per class in downtown Long Beach.  My goals are for you to have fun learning something new & making your product in a relaxed, personal environment, and that you leave the class with a solid, educational foundation that you can build upon.

My Soap Making & Teaching Background:

I have been making & learning about natural, personal-care products since 2012, when I took my first soap-making class with my sister-in-law in Quincy, Massachusetts.  I like to joke that it spiraled out of control as we discovered that nearly everything in your home can be made at home using natural ingredients.  So we took a few more classes, learning how to make lotion, candles & more!  When my husband & I moved to SF in 2013, I wanted to start something new, and since I had been a teacher long before learning how to make natural products, I decided to mesh my 2 specialty areas and open Blue Dot Organics.  I have taught in various capacities ever since I graduated with a Bachelor's in Education in 2006, but I prefer the small-group setting for a more personal experience and so you can get the most out of the class!  I hope to meet you soon!
