The course provides a lot of great info about oil and butter choices. I was really hoping for more in the way of starter recipes in the handout though. The description specifies “Base recipes to get you started” but there is only one basic formulation with no specified oils provided.

Great course. I’ve been making my own lotion and soaps from scratch for years. I have only the one lotion recipe. I purchased this course because I wanted to learn more about formulating my own recipes with oils I love. Lovin Soap Studio makes the process of making lotion and formulating your own recipes easy. Thanks for the great course.

I loved the course. My first batch was great! I know you mentioned using glycerin In the water or oil phase. How much would you recommend?

I make soap but was running very low on night cream. Since other ebooks and recipes from Lovin Soap have been great, I figured I’d check this out. The formula given was great and easy to follow. I now have some great facial lotion made with the oils and butters I chose. I’ll be making all my own lotion from now on. Great course!
