Soapmaking Success

Become More Confident & Adventurous In Your Soapmaking!

My soapmaking adventure started 16 years ago, when my son was a toddler with really bad allergies and eczema.


He was allergic to every soap available, so I decided to make one he wouldn’t react to.


The first few batches were spectacular fails, but then I got it right and haven’t looked back since!


Whether you’re brand new to the craft, or have several batches under your belt, the Soapmaking Success Course will give you the information you need to confidently create all-natural soaps featuring herbs, flowers, veggies, natural colorants, and essential oils.


You’ll also learn the basics of simple soap design and even how to create your own soap labels, perfect for making your soaps giftable to friends and family.


There’s a comment section in every lesson, so you can ask your soapmaking questions and get help with ingredient substitutions or troubleshooting.


Soapmaking Success is especially ideal for the visual learners who want to focus on using all-natural ingredients.


Join us today and get started on your own successful soapmaking journey!

The recipes are primarily cold process, though instructions are to easily convert cold process recipes to hot process. (See the Handmade Natural Soaps ebook.)
