Learn how to make your own natural soap using Babylonstoren’s olive and essential oils as inspiration. The experience kicks off with a visit to our farm’s aromatic fields to harvest rosemary, lavender or rose geranium. In the Scented Room, you’ll learn how essential oils are distilled before using these in your own soap. Practical advice on the intricacies of natural soapmaking, such as infusing, preparing and casting soap will be shared by Babylonstoren’s in-house compounder, Gavin Hendriks. Creating and blending different products such as balms and moisturisers may also be explored if time permits. Guests get to take home their own creations at the end of the day.
Steaming coffee from the Lekker Room is served upon arrival.
Lunch at the Tasting Room is included.
