Lavender Soap Making

Betsy Reichard demonstrates soap making.

Presbyterian Village, an assisted living facility, hosted a make-it-and-take-it soap making class Tuesday evening.

The class was led by Betsy Reichard, who with husband Davin, owns the Lavender Patch Farm, 2376 Locust Road.

Reichard demonstrated the art and science of soapmaking that included a step-by-step guide through the basics of cold press soap making.

She also makes lotions, sprays, and other products from the lavender grown on their farm, as well as lavender bunches, which are sold outright.

The class was open to the public and free.

Participants visit and work on their soap project, while Reichard gives instructions.
