Course Information

How very satisfying to luxuriate with your own home-made soap scented with your choice of essential oil. While most commercial soaps may irritate sensitive skins or scalps, making your own soap means you can use all-natural ingredients that are so good for your skin.

And the best thing is, it’s simple, fulfilling and you can share your creations as gifts for your loved ones.

Learning Outcomes

You will learn how to express yourself with a variety of natural ingredients, exfoliants, colours and fragrance to create your own high-quality soaps for suit different occasions and purposes.
