Learn How to Make Personal-Care & Household Products Naturally with an Experienced Teacher!
I've been teaching these classes since 2013 and I've worked with over 700 students!!
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, CA in the fall of 2015 and I began teaching again, but on a smaller scale until May of 2016. We moved for his job to Long Beach in July of 2016, where I continued my small-group classes in downtown Long Beach for about 2 years. Currently, we are in the Monterey, CA area in Pacific Grove, once again having moved for his job. Now my classes are for typically up to 2 students per class (but up to 4 is possible). 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!
