When my son was a toddler, he struggled with eczema and allergies. Commercial bars left his skin dry and irritated, so I wanted to learn how to make all-natural soaps free from the chemicals and ingredients that bothered him.
The problem was, I didn’t know where to start.
Back then, you couldn’t find many books on the subject, YouTube wasn’t around yet, and soap making websites were few and far between. The information I did find was sometimes incomplete or went over my head. I didn’t want to learn about the history of soap making, or have to wrap my brain around what an iodine value was – I just wanted to jump right into making soap!
So I did. And my first batch failed. Then the second one did the same. You would think that third time’s the charm, right? Well, no. That one failed too.
It was frustrating and I almost gave up.
Finally, on the fourth go-around I got it right and haven’t looked back since.

No, this is a digital product only.
All of the recipes in the Soapmaking Success Course and Handmade Natural Soaps eBook Collection are palm free. A few recipes suggest tallow or lard, but a vegan substitute is always given. The majority of the recipes do call for coconut oil, but in some cases options are given. (Babassu oil makes a great stand in for coconut!) You can ask in the comments section of the course, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a question specific to the course or eBook collection.
The recipes are primarily cold process, though instructions are given to easily convert cold process recipes to hot process. (See the Handmade Natural Soaps ebook.)

Every so often a little hiccup in the systems happens, especially with mobile devices. When all else fails, it usually works for me to send the files as email attachments.
