You will arrive to my farm, only a short distance from the town of Sciacca. I will introdude you to the history of soap making through a personalized tour of the soap museum, located on site. Following the tour, we will begin the hands on fun of creating our own soap! You will have the option to choose one of our essential oils or a fresh herbal essence picked directly from my garden. Together we will create an olive oil based soap, with a recipe that you will be able to reproduce in your own home! While we wait for your soap to set, we will walk through the olive grove and find an area to sit and enjoy a light olive aperitivo with a glass of local sicilian wine!
I am Alessandro and I am a chemist and soap maker. I started to produce soap and natural cosmetics in 2006 and since then, I am enjoying the art of making soap and cosmetics. The main ingredient in my soap is the extra virgin olive oil produced here in my farm. I love to be surrounded by people and to give the best in all I can do. I have been a member of the AirBnB communinty for nearly three years, hosting guests here in my farmhouse from all the over the world. Now, I am happy to have the possibility to organize an experience about what I enjoy to do in life: soap!

We will create together your soap inside Casa Museo del Sapone a building which has been in my family for centuries. We will use all natural ingredients grown by myself on the farm. You will leave with the knowledge of soap making from the history to the technicalities and also take home your own personalized bar of soap!
We are in the countryside, so it is best to keep it casual!
