FAQs About Our Online Soap Making Lessons

Not only are our lessons taught by well-known and experienced instructors, but we also take you through the basics as well as more advanced recipes that you can use to craft unique and impressive soap creations. Our online classes are also flexible, which means you can learn at your own pace from the comfort of your own home.

Your instructors will teach you how to work with:

  • Lye
  • Distilled water
  • Essential oils
  • Natural colorants
  • Natural, textured ingredients for look and feel

The more advanced your soap making skills become, the more you can experiment with different ingredients. 

Our soap making course will cover the following techniques:

  • Cold process method. For this method, you will also use lye and oils/fats, but no heat is required. The cold mixture will need time to harden and cure for at least 4 weeks before it’s ready for use. 
  • Melt and pour method. If you would prefer to not use lye, this method is right for you. This method requires you to purchase premade soap bases, which are then cut, melted, and combined with oils, scents, and colors. You can use these bars within a few hours. It’s also an ideal method for younger children. 

Once you complete our soap making tutorials, you will have the option to start making soaps for your friends, family, and special occasions. You could also choose to turn it into a small online business or attend local craft markets in your area to make money in your spare time. 

As long as you have a basic kitchen set up and the right ingredients, you are ready to start learning how to craft beautiful soaps. We will take you through some equipment recommendations though if you want to take things a step further to create soap in bulk. Please note that to prepare lye, you need protective equipment at home: masks, gloves and protective glasses for the eyes

Handmade soap making is recommended for anyone over the age of 12 because it could require you to work with heat. However, there are other methods that don’t require heat, so younger children could potentially be involved with the guidance of a parent. 

It is completely possible to earn money from soap making, it all depends on how you choose to run your business and the types of soaps you decide to make. Unique soaps that are readily available, particularly online, and are beautifully packaged have the potential to be a profitable business. How you market your business will also impact your profitability.

If you plan to start a soap making business, you may need to spend money on additional equipment if your products are in high demand. For hobbyists, you probably already have most of what you need at home. In terms of the ingredients, the cost depends on the types and quality of ingredients you decide to use.
