  1. In order to learn how to make soap, it is best to start from the beginning. If you want, you can start from the very beginning! Click here to read a brief history of soap making.
  2. Next, make sure that you understand exactly what soap is (you may just be surprised). It's absolutely vital that you know what you're working with.
  3. Now review these essential soap making safety tips. Be sure to do this important step before you start.
  4. As you already know, there is more than one way to do just about anything. With soap making, this is especially true. In fact, there are four main methods of homemade soap making, each of which is completely unique. Before you can start making soap, you'll need to decide whether you want to use the melt and pour, rebatching, hot process, or cold process soap making method.

In addition to there being multiple ways of making homemade soaps, there are also many different types of soap. In fact, I feel that there are as many different soaps as there are soap makers as every creation has a flare of originality.

There are Glycerin soaps, lye soaps, animal based soaps, castile soaps, and tons more.

Some soap classifications overlap tremendously. For example: all handmade soaps are "lye soap" and most soaps at one time or another had glycerin in them. Nonetheless, being able to understand some classification of soaps may be helpful.

While you are learning how to make soap, you will be exposed to many other soap types.

Now, sit back, relax and thoroughly enjoy everything that this site has to offer as you go through each lesson in this tutorial
