Description

Let me guess, you’re here on this page because you want to make your own natural handcrafted soap … or perhaps you’re curious why so many people are moving from store-bought soap, to natural alternatives.

Back in 2008 I made my first batch of soap. I had been battling ultra-troubled skin that was perpetually irritated by nasty synthetic body washes. I tried some soap from the health food store and was amazed that it helped my skin issues almost immediately. The downside to using that soap was the cost!

After doing some research, I realized I could make natural soap myself, heal my irritated skin, and save money in the process!

I read a few books, got up the courage to work with lye, and made that first batch of soap. With my goggles and gloves in place, I measured out my soapmaking ingredients and stirred … and stirred … for more than an hour! I finally poured the soap into my mold … only to wake up the next morning to an oozing, squishy mess. I was disappointed but unwilling to give up!

It turns out, my recipe was horribly off balance, my procedure and techniques were chaotic and outdated. I simply didn’t have enough knowledge to make a successful batch of soap. Gratefully, I’ve learned a lot since 2008.

For more than a decade, I’ve been sharing my tried-and-true methods for making handcrafted soap your skin will love!

In this eCourse, I walk you through the process of making natural soap from the comfort of your own kitchen. And I promise, you won’t have a gooey mess on your hands when you’re done!

Learn how to safely work with lye, ingredients, equipment and tools, as well as step-by-step instructions covering the basic process of soapmaking. I even cover advanced topics such as formulating.

Trust me, this is the course and eBook I wish I had read before my own disastrous soapmaking attempt!

I have an amazing offer for you…and it won’t be available forever! Grab my Basic Soapmaking Mini Course for only $7! (Regular price is $49!)

This FIVE video eCourse will have you confidently making cold process soap in not time. Here’s a little info about each video.

Lye Safety Video – If you have any fear at all about working with lye, I want to reassure you. I liken working with lye to working with dangerous household cleaning products such as bleach and ajax. As long as you protect yourself, you can easily and safely make soap! I’ll talk about safety gear that you need, using and storing your lye. Let me put your mind at ease! Sure lye needs to be respected, but never feared!

Making a Lye Solution Video – Talking to many new soapmaker, the #1 struggle when jumping into the craft is working with lye and making the lye solution. I created a whole video dedicated to safely making your lye solution! I talk about the different kinds of lye and where to find it. I go over containers and utensils that are safe to use. I’ll walk you through the process, showing you how to use a scale, step-by-step, and you’ll see how easy it is.

Preparing Your Oils & Scent Video – After making your lye solution, you’ll need to prepare your oils. I’ll show you my process for preparing my oils that won’t have you waiting FOREVER for your temperatures to drop so that you can make your soap.

Mixing and Molding Video – After you’ve prepared your lye solution and oils, it is time to mix your soap! I’ll walk you through how to use an immersion blender to bring your soap to trace! (Don’t know what trace is? This video will help!) It can be hard to recognize when your soap is fully mixed, this detailed video will show you the detailed process. I’ll also discuss temperature and how that affects your soap.

Cutting and Curing Your Soap Video – After you’ve poured your soap into the mold, you’ll need to let it firm up! We’ll talk about how long to let your soap sit, how to cut your soap and how to cure. And if you don’t know what cure mean, don’t worry, we’ll discuss that!

After watching this video series, you’ll be able to confidently and safely make cold process soap!

There’s a lot more to handcrafted soap than a beautiful looking product. Although, the end results are breathtaking!

If you’ve frequented craft shows in your community, you’ve likely come across the unique art of soapmaking. Soapmaking combines both science and art to produce a natural, safe soap that your skin will love!

What we put on our bodies is just as important as what we put in our bodies. Making your own soap provides you the opportunity to control the ingredients you put on your body.

Choose between skin loving oils and butters such as olive oil and shea butter for luxurious, soft skin. Beneficial additives including herbs, clays and natural essential oils such as lavender and tea tree can be combined to create unique and powerful aromas.

Creating gently formulated handmade soap can help relieve skin conditions such as eczema or other sensitivities.

Here’s what a few of my fellow Soapmakers had to say about why they started Soapmaking:

  • The ingredients in commercial soap can cause irritation, inflammation and troubling allergic reactions. Learning to make soap provides you the freedom to use ingredients that work for your family’s specific needs, providing soothing relief for a variety of skin types.
  • Soapmaking can become an engaging craft or hobby that provides enrichment and joy.
  • By using a variety of techniques, ingredients and colors, soapmaking is an art medium that does more than simply provide a creative outlet. It produces skin soothing soap that delights the senses.
  • The soapmaking process provides a therapeutic outlet for managing depression and anxiety.
  • Natural handcrafted soap is the perfect gift for birthdays, holidays, wedding and baby showers, and basically any gift-giving opportunity!
  • Soapmaking provides a creative outlet that can double as a business or side hustle.

This course will have you making the perfect natural soap in no time!

“I’ve watched soooo many YouTube tutorials on making soap but I wasn’t quite confident enough. It’s like the videos on YouTube gave me some info, but not ALL the info. I took Amanda’s course and I made my first batch of soap over Thanksgiving! It came out great!” – Leslie V.

“Working with lye scared me so much that I’ve been putting off making soap for several months! After watching this series I was able to do it! Now I’m addicted and can’t stop ordering supplies!” – Rebecca C.

    I just bought this video course on basic soap making, and it is the clearest and most detailed explanation of beginner soap making I have found. I’ve watched a lot of videos and even bought some other courses. I found the instructions complicated and confusing, so I gave up the idea of even trying to make soap. This is the first time someone has explained the process in a way that makes me think I can give it a try.
