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 health...to get rid of the toxic chemicals found in all store-bought soaps. 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!
Are you like I was?
- 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?
- Wonder what those toxins are doing to your endocrine system, brain, and more?
- 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 natural methods to make your soaps
- Want to be able to make soaps quickly and easily?
NOW, you can stop worrying, wondering, and take action!

As a former 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!
