My favorite place at Mount Union is the Huston-Brumbaugh Nature Center. Many students do not realize that Mount has its own nature preserve, but it does!

Gifts from the Hand and Heart

Barbara Lyons

Barbara Lyons led a soap making workshop to help participants learn how to make simple, hand-crafted gifts.  Participants were given simple directions for making melt and pour glycerin soap, lip balm, and solid perfume.  Participants then created their own products, choosing from a variety of soap bases, colorings, scents, and additives to make personalized gifts.  A demonstration on making lye soap using the cold process was also presented.
