Take this course and you will learn how to make beautiful, natural handmade soap from scratch, at home, using the ingredients of your choice.

The course will give you all the information that you need about oils, butters and fragrances, so that you can easily create your own recipes. I share my own recipes for the soaps demonstrated to give you a start. You can use animal fats or make vegan soap.

With the knowledge you get from this course, you won't have to be limited to following other people's recipes - you will be able to create your own unique handcrafted soaps.

Soapmaking is like any hobby - you can spend a fortune on it. However, in this course I will show you how to get started by using regular kitchen equipment and inexpensive ingredients that you can get in your local supermarket and health food store.

You will discover how to use household or dollar store items as molds, so that you can get started straight away at little or no cost. I will even show you how to make a wooden mold at a fraction of the cost of buying one.

You will see how to colour your soap with natural and cosmetic colours. The course will also show you a colour swirling technique, as well as how to make shampoo, shaving and an exfoliating soap.


Q) What method of soap making is used in this course?
A) This course covers Cold Process soap making.

Q) Does this course cover Melt and Pour Soap making?
A) No. This course shows you how to make soap from scratch using the Cold Process Method.

Q) Does this course cover Hot Process Soap making?
A) No the method taught in this course is Cold Process, although the basic method for Hot Process soap is discussed.

Q) Is this method of soap making suitable for children to do?
A) Some people allow their children to do soap making, however that is usually using the Melt and Pour method. The lye in Cold Process soap making is caustic and will burn the skin, so I would not recommend children or animals to be around while soap making.

Q) What if I run into problems while making my soap?
A) I have highlighted all the important things that you need to know. However, if you do have any problems I'll be there in the discussion area, ready to help you

Meditative Candlemaking – For Beginners!

Learn how to make candles!

Created by Jovanna Benavente - Yoga Teacher, Candle Maker, Vedic Astrologer, Plant Witch


Students: 9456, Price: $29.99

Students: 9456, Price:  Paid

Hi, I'm Jovanna! I've been making candles since I was 15 years old. I really enjoy it; for me, it's a relaxing, meditative activity - an enjoyable hobby, rather than a job or profession.

This course will show you how to make a few types of basic candles, including molded candles, votive candles, scented candles, and even multicolored candles, in extremely simple and easy ways.

This is not a course for candle-making professionals to learn how to make complicated & time consuming candles to sell to Bed Bath & Beyond. This is more of a course for someone who wants to learn to quickly and easily (and enjoyably) make simple, fun candles, to burn at home, or to give as gifts to friends & relatives, or even to sell on Etsy.

In this course, I'll walk you through the basics of candle-making, including temperatures, flashpoints, essential oils, pigments, and more.

I even included some videos where I made mistakes in measurements and procedures, in order to show you what can happen when you do things the wrong way, so that you learn from my mistakes and learn what NOT to do.

I hope you enjoy this course, and would love to get your honest feedback! I sincerely appreciate your honest thoughts, messages and reviews.

Gel candlemaking is a fun and economical way to create stunning long lasting scented candles, as gel candles burn 3-4 times longer than traditional wax candles.

The clear quality of the gel is the perfect base for creating stories or themes. You can use a variety of embeds to create eye catching effects.

Gel candles are not at all messy to make.
