Homemade natural soap demonstration community
With Sherrye Perry
Sherrye owns Gypsy Bee Natural Soap Company in Marshall, North Carolina. Sherrye handcrafts several types of luxury honey soaps and bath products from her home in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. For the past twelve years, Sherrye has kept bees on her property and has more recently begun to source the pure, unfiltered honey from the hives to make all-natural soaps. Much of Sherrye's knowledge of beekeeping was passed down from her father, who was also a beekeeper.
Sherrye will demonstrate the soap-making process at her home in the beautiful mountains of Madison County, NC. Sherrye will provide explanations for every step of the process from a visit to her beehives, the harvesting, the mixing, blending, pouring, molding and curing stages. You will also be able to band finished soaps! This tour lasts approximately 1 hour, and includes credit towards purchase of available items.
