Soapmaking for Absolute Beginners {Free} Mini eMail Course

Violet Leaf Soap Recipe

If you want to try making your own soap, but feel intimidated, scared or unsure of what to do first, I’ve created the perfect mini course for you!

Over the span of 6 email lessons, I’m going to teach you:

  • common soapmaking terms
  • all about basic soapmaking equipment
  • what soapmaking ingredients you need
  • why we use lye (and why it deserves respect, but not fear)
  • plus an easy soap recipe, perfect for beginners

Throughout the series, I’ll also share half a dozen checklists and printables that will be extra helpful as you begin making soap.

To join in the fun:

  1. Enter your first name and email address into the form below.
  2. Check your inbox for an email, asking you to confirm that you want to sign up.
  3. Once confirmed, look for the first email in the series to arrive right away!
  4. After that, look for a new lesson to arrive around the same time each day.
  5.  Feel free to tell your friends about the course too!

If you don’t see the confirmation email within 30 minutes, check your spam, trash or junk folders, since sometimes good emails get sent there by mistake. You can also add my email address to your contacts list to be extra sure that you won’t miss any of the lessons.

    sounds great to me! Soapmaking sounds like fun, plus…soap!

        Jan I only got lesson 6 and not the first 5 lessons! Please help

        • Hi Pam! I took a look and it seems like you got the first few lessons, but then the ones in the middle bounced. That means the first lessons probably are in your spam/junk/trash folder where you can’t see them. If you can find them there and mark them as not spam/junk/trash, then that will really help. You can also add me to your contacts list and then it hopefully won’t do that again. I’m going to send you an email right now, with links to the other lessons, but that might end up in spam/junk/trash too, so please look for my new message there and mark me as okay to email you. Thanks! :)

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge of soap making because I have been wanting to learn this art and have been reluctant to attempt because of some of the directions I have read about mentioning having certain waste materials after. So it was confusing. I hope these lessons clarifies a few things.

    • Hi Mary! I hope the course is helpful for you! I also have my email address listed in the first email of the series, so if you ever run into any questions that you don’t see answered in the course, just let me know & I’m happy to help. :)

    This is perfect. I have only made hot process soap because the cold process is too intimidating.

    Jan, do you have a lip balm recipe that is perfect for men? Something without any shine. Where i live, guys and my sons will not use anything balm with any hint of a shine. It must have beeswax. Looking for a “chapstick” lip balm.
