2.25.23 // Soap Nuts w/ Grace Kale // 12-1:30p
Learn how to drastically cut down on plastic consumption and unnecessary toxic chemicals in your home and garden- with Soap Nuts! In this class we will provide essential and easy tips of making your home safer and cleaner with the unique ways to use the organic soap nut fruit, as well as recipes to stimulate your senses and cleanse your space naturally!
What is a Soap Nut? These curious little pods are harvested, de-seeded, and sun dried fruit from the “Soapberry” tree. These towering, thickly vegetated trees are always organic, as pests do not like the taste of their frothy fruit. Of all the varieties of soap nuts, Sapindus Mukorossi is the best for cleaning because it is loaded with the natural surfactant “saponin.” When dissolved in warm water saponin transforms into a foamy substance that removes dirt and odors from most any surface – from textiles to tennis shoes!
This class fee includes a deep-dive into soap nuts and natural cleaning, plus you'll go home with a 6 oz Bag Soap Nuts!
