Happy New Year! I’m writing this with only ONE more day left in 2020.
I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for 2021! This year was tough. I wish each of you happiness, good health and success in 2021!
I wanted to do a quick recap on the best blog posts, pages, products and resources at Lovin Soap. Let’s dive in!
First of all, if you are not in our Facebook group, Saponfication Nation, please join! Our community continues to grow, year-after-year. SapNat is one of my favorite places to hang out online. I love seeing what everyone is working on and love providing help to those that need it. I hope you’ll join us!
Top Resource Pages for Soap Makers
Year after year, our #1 resource page is the Soapmaking Oil Chart! The oil chart is so handy to learn the properties of oils and fatty acid profiles. It is obviously our top resource at Lovin Soap and I am so glad that you are enjoying it!
The #2 page at Lovin Soap is the Soapmaking Additive Chart. Check out this page if you want to learn some common additives and their usage rates in soap. I want to expand this page in 2021 and make it even better!
Top Blog Posts for Soap Makers
How to Make Clear Transparent Soap From Scratch – Making Transparent Soap Guide post is our #1 blog post (and has been for a couple of years). It’s popularity inspired me to create our #1 selling eCourse, Clear Transparent Soap from Scratch.

In addition to the soap designs and tutorials you know and love, in 2021 I will be expanding my resources and training for those wanting to start a business, and for those who are looking to grow their business to new heights! With training on building a website, building an email list, social media marketing, Facebook Ads and more, you’ll find lots of inspiration for building a thriving soap business! Online marketing is my zone of genius, and I’m excited to share what I’ve learned over the last 10 years that has made Lovin’ Soap Studio what it is today!
Stay tuned! 2021 is looking to be a good one!
