You can make a recycled soap mold to hold your fresh 2 pound batch of soap. Full instructions and a video are included.

Once you decide how you’d like your soap to benefit your skin (moisturizing, exfoliating, acne prevention, etc), you can customize a blend that works for you.

What you'll learn

Who this course is for

Here are just a few things you'll learn

Hot Process Chocolate Silk Soap

This hot process soap contains silk fibers it adds a luxurious ingredient to our soap.

Chunk or Confetti Hot Process Soap

Chunk Soap is a very handy way to use up your scraps of soap from another batch. The look can be very attractive. The scent can be a really nice combination too.

Organic Rooibos Tea Soap

This is one of my very favorite soaps. Rooibos tea is loaded with vitamin C and it makes a wonderful colored soap too.

Meet The Teacher


I’m Rene Whitlock.

I’m the founder of Soap Making School.

We are going on to our 12th year on line and the program has grown faster than I dreamed.

Soap Making is my passion. since I began in 1997.
I’ve been teaching for a good chunk of that time, starting with friends and other Soap Makers.  

I’ve been teaching larger groups for over 23 years. It’s been a blast and it has inspired me to make videos showing what I teach in my live classes. My curious nature has allowed me to push myself into experimenting with many soap making methods that I’ve not seen before.

I like to look for a more logical simplified method for making soap. If I can’t find one then I will invent one. If it works out, it becomes the new method that I use and over time it becomes the norm. 

I spent a big chunk of my time during my learning process asking the question why. Why would someone want to complicate something that can be simple? We support Palm oil free soap making and sponsor orphaned Orangutans through Orangutan Foundation International  

Hope to see you in the class!
