When I first started soapmaking, there weren’t as many learning opportunities as there are now. Courses were usually in person, and very expensive. Let’s not bring up how much money I spent on physical copies of books when the local libraries didn’t have what I needed.
But education, especially about soapmaking, is now at your fingertips! It’s easier than ever before to learn a new craft, why not let that be soapmaking? They also make amazing gifts too!
The Nerdy Farm Wife
Jan Berry, AKA The Nerdy Farm Wife is a writer, herbalist, soapmaker, and bestselling author of several books. She lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains with her family and a menagerie of animals, and she’s been blogging and showing people how to make natural soap for more than a decade.
6 Ebook Series
Here’s everything you need to know about Jan’s Ebook series and video course.
This 6 book series starts with Jans Handmade Soap ebook, its literally a publishable quality book on its own. It will teach you how to make soap from a literal beginner’s standpoint.
But don’t worry, If you already know how to make soap, she has some goodies just for you. Her DIY Speciality Soap ebook jumps to mind, which has a boatload of different recipes that I myself want to try as soon as possible.
The wine soap, for instance, sounds so interesting! While everyone has heard of beer soap, I’d never thought of making use of wine before.
Other things worth mentioning are the amazing charts and printables she has to offer. The soapmaking checklist is fabulous, as are the essential oil and soap additive charts.
Her Troubleshooting Soap ebook is also wonderful. Even seasoned soapmakers have those ‘what the hell happened here’ moments when things don’t go quite right. This guide will help you get to the bottom of some of even your messiest soapmaking disasters.
There’s a lot of information here, spread across pages and pages of beautifully designed ebooks, all with beautifully taken photographs.
The other three books in the series are the Natural Facial Soaps ebook, the All Natural Milk Soaps eBook and the Essential Oils In Soapmaking eBook.
Anyone who’s interested in how to make natural soap will love Jan’s Ebook series for sure.
The Video Course
The Nerdy Farm Wife’s teachable course, ‘Soapmaking Success’ is an absolute gem. I really wish there had been a course like this back in the day when I started soap making. When I first started, I had to hunt around for books at my local library. Those days are certainly gone!
Whether you’re completely new to soapmaking, or you’re still getting your toes wet, this is definitely a course for you.
Split across 6 huge modules, you’ll learn the very basic principles of soapmaking, then it leads you through some of the more advanced soapmaking techniques.
These include using fruits, flowers and botanicals, alternative liquids (beer, vinegar etc.) in your soaps and how to make milk soaps.
But the fun doesn’t stop there, she’ll get you versed in various different soap designs, as well as how to get the most out of your natural soap dyes.
Module 6, how to design soap labels, is a great touch. While you can find lots of recipes online and learn how to make soap that way, very few blogs actually discuss this kind of thing. So if you’re interested in turning a hobby into a business, or just want to make your soaps that much more beautiful or personalized, this is the course for you.
All of this is accompanied by full, start-to-finish soapmaking videos. They’re very easy to follow, as they include step-by-step instructions.
The video production is really good as well. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is probably worth a million!
At the end of the course, Jan has provided a bunch of printable resources for you to use. These include multiple resources on different soap making ingredients, as well as a guide on how to use a lye calculator and cute certificate for proof of completing the course.
