Also included in your enrollment: Personalized Formula Feedback!

This alone is worth the entire cost of enrollment! I'm excited to add this resource to the course.

As part of your enrollment, you get personalized feedback on 5 soap formulas. Upload your formula into your personalized feedback area. I'll look it over and send you feedback and suggestions. This is private; no one else sees your formula or feedback notes.

Having an expert look over your first few formulas will give you the confidence and assurance that you're on the right track and that your formulas are safe and stable. Consider this service as "training wheels" as you progress as a soap formulator.

Simple & Uncomplicated

I'll walk you step-by-step through the entire formulating process, with my super simple 7-step signature method. Step-by-step video lessons and tutorials + downloadable guides, instructions, and cheat sheets will ensure success on your first try.

Setting You Up for Success

My superpower is taking a complex subject and breaking it down to make it easy to understand. After the course, you'll feel confident, empowered, and excited to make beautiful bars from your own custom formulas.

Personalized Support

Either way, I will answer each and every one of your questions! You'll never be stuck or confused. I LOVE interacting with my students.

The course includes video lesson tutorials + these additional resources:

 CHECKLIST Step-By-Step Soap Formulating: When I say I make it easy to formulate, I mean it! This printable checklist walks you through each step of the formulating process. Just follow the steps and you'll have a custom recipe in a snap.

E-BOOK Soap Making Oils and Their Properties: All the information you need about soap making oils, the qualities they lend to your soap, plus recommended usage rates, compiled into one place.

PERSONALIZED FORMULA REVIEW: Upload your soap formulas and get feedback. Use this service for your first 5 formulas!

Create soap recipes totally unique to YOU!

While following other people's recipes is perfect when you're just starting out, there are limitations: You're stuck using the ingredients they chose and making the batch size they devised.

Learning how to formulate yourself opens up an entirely new world to your soap making:

  • Use only the ingredients you choose. Allergic to an oil? Leave it out! Love a specific oil? Add it in!
  • Make the size batch you need, from tiny 1-pounders to massive 20-pound batches and everything in between.
  • Craft a soap that is perfect for you and your family. Need a soap that is extra-moisturizing for dry skin? Coconut or palm-free? Vegan? Tallow-based? Whatever you need, you can create it.
  • Develop a recipe not found anywhere else. When you formulate, you are developing a soap that is unique to you. This is a game-changer if you are a seller! You can create a soap recipe no one else has, to bring your customers back to you time and again.

Leave formulation confusion and intimidation behind--this course will take you from beginner to confident soap formulator in no time.
