Hi I am Seila, a Chemist and Environmental scientist from Venezuela, I love creating natural skincare products that are both nurturing for the skin and friendly to the environment. Since I came to Chiang Mai two years ago I have been learning about the properties and benefits of Thai herbs, plant extracts and oils.
After working for 10 years in the modeling industry I enjoy sharing my knowledge and passion both for beauty products and natural medicine with like minded people while creating unique moments and experiences.
After an introduction on the chemistry of soap making, we will discuss your skin needs and you will select the oils for your personalized soap recipe and blend essential oils of Frangipani, Ylang Ylang flowers, lemon grass and ginger to infuse the recipe with.
Next, you will get your hands on to create 200 grams of Vegan natural soap with nurturing, regenerative and insect repellent properties and scented with the signature fragrances of the Land of Smiles while I guide you step by step answering any question you may have and sharing useful tips on mixing, pouring, molding, cooking, preserving and presenting your soaps.
You get to take with you 200 grams of Vegan soap made with local Thai ingredients, one soap bar from my personal batch and a e-book with description of methods of soap making, resources and recipes.
We will meet at my house in the beautiful neighborhood Chiang Mai Lake Land where you will enjoy a freshly made smoothie and Royal Project Thai tea while we get to know each other.
Chiang Mai Lake Land is a private neighborhood surrounded by lakes and home of different bird species, our workshops will take place in a shaded outdoor terrace with views to Doi Suthep Mountain.
After the workshop you may enjoy a walk around the different lakes and canals, enjoy a drink at the famous Asama Cafe or enjoy traditional Thai fodd at Hi solao.
