Craft your own soap with Crete's most popular natural essence: its famed olive oil. Your family will explore the aromas and smooth texture of the best olive oil in the world! Children love this workshop as they become little chemists in a humble Greek village just outside of Heraklion. 

Your host and teacher is a passionate woman who specializes in the art of soap and cosmetics. Learn the traditional cold process soap-making method as you shape your olive oil soap base. You'll also explore different oils, balms, essences, natural colorants, plants, and spices. In the end, you choose what you want to include in your soap and take it home with you as a souvenir.
