The Secret to Making and Customizing Your Own Hot Process Soap

The Secret to Making and Customizing Your Own Hot Process Soap

Before I began making my own soap, I thought about it a lot. A LOT! Whenever I'd go into a health store, I'd always search out the natural soaps---I just LOVED them! And I'd always think, "I think I can make my own soap!?" But making soap got put on the back burner for many years---I was worried about working with lye, for one thing. Plus, I think I was afraid I'd become addicted! And guess what?

Once I began making soaps for our family, and realized all the different things I could do, I actually DID become a bit soap obsessed! It's fun! It's WAY more healthy for your body. And they make amazing gifts! Like, people are REALLY appreciative to receive handmade soaps, especially when they are personalized just for them! Have you ever given any thought to making your very own soaps for your family? 

I get asked lots of questions about how to make soap, as well as requests for me to make soap for others--sometimes whole entire loaves! I honestly don't have a lot of time to make loads of soap anymore, so I thought I'd write the perfect guide for those who want to just....GO for it! I say, "Just DO it!" It's easy! It's fun! Hot Process Soap Making is Fast! So, here it is, my 88 page eBook: Hot Process Soap Making: How to Make & Customize Your Own Natural Hot Process Soaps. 

 

Here's What You'll Enjoy in This Hot Process Soap Making Guidebook:
