Natural Soap Making with the Hot Process Method

Make and Customize Your Own Natural Soaps Safely: A Step by Step Tutorial Course

Learn how to make your own natural handmade soaps using the traditional hot process method! There are many reasons to make your own soaps.

When you make your own soaps you will and can:

  • Get rid of toxins in your soap products because you'll KNOW what's in them
  • Save money
  • Give yourself a fun, creative outlet (self-care)
  • Add to your self-reliance and self-sufficiency skills
  • Improve the health and appearance of your skin
  • Reduce consumer waste
  • Build a foundation for starting your own soap making business (if you choose)

There are probably lots more reasons I'm not even considering!

The reasons I personally wanted to learn how to make my own handmade soap was for my get rid of the toxic chemicals found in all store-bought soaps AND I also wanted to know I could handle our cleaning needs should there ever be an emergency.

Little did I know I would save a ton of money, improve my skin, and even have a successful soap making business when I started on this journey!


I have just finished your Soap Making Course and I am completely amazed at how in depth it really is. You answered and thoroughly explained (in great detail) any questions I may possibly have. This is such a jam packed course ! I am so pleased and grateful you offered it at such a great price! (I felt I was in your kitchen with you asking questions and you so patiently answering them.)

Iโ€™ve taken other courses that didnโ€™t answer all my questions, and yours did. Thank you once again for offering this very worth while course which you have so generously spent hours and hours putting together. You are a true gem.

Are you like I was?

Do you:

  • Wonder what on earth all that toxic stuff is in the soaps you buy? Even the "natural" ones?
  • Worry about the fact that your skin (and your family's skins) are soaking all that garbage in?
  • Want the peace of knowing exactly what ingredients are in the soap you're using?
  • Imagine it will be fun (it is!) and want to find a way to expend some creative energy?
  • Want to use only TRULY natural methods to make your soaps
  • Want to be able to make soaps quickly and easily?
  • OR, perhaps you'd love to start your own natural soap business, like many of my students have?

NOW, you can stop worrying, wondering, take action, and have fun!!

I've created this course with the brand new soap maker in mind. I've taken great care to answer ALL of your potential questions so you can feel safe and secure in your creative soap making efforts!

Here's a note I received via email:

Ms. Heidi,

I just made my first batch of soap using your basic recipe. Lemon, bergamot, lemongrass and ginger scented. I even got a little fancy and grated then dried some ginger to put inside. Oh my goooooooosh, GOD BLESS YOU. Dove who? Dr. Bronnerโ€™s what? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ you are amazing for sharing this knowledge. I send you infinite blessings, positive vibrations on your journey.

With Love,

Why Natural Soap Making?

As a former public school teacher, I know that we all have different learning styles. Learning to make soap from a book, like I did, can be difficult, causing a lot of second-guessing and anxiety, especially since you're working with lye.

I've included complete step-by-step videos, written text, and recipes simply spelled out for you in this course. It will be like you're standing right in my soap making kitchen, learning right along with me as I show you everything!

There are very few hot process soap tutorials out there, especially in the popular soap making books. Even though the hot process method is the traditional method of making home made soap, it is one of the skills we've lost! It's time to find out how to make this style of soap again!

You need only a few items to get started, and you probably have most of these right in your kitchen right now!
