Beginners Class - Hot Process Soap Making


89 reward points

Learn how to make natural, hot process soap from scratch. This class will teach you the fundamentals of making natural soap at home, and how to safely work with sodium hydroxide (also known as lye.)


Hot process soap is a variation on the cold process method.  It is an interesting take on the cold process method. The simple explanation is that you take all your ingredients, and add them to a pot (that is then placed over a heat source) and heated until the soap goes through various stages. The excess water is evaporated off and the soap is ready to use once cooled.


Hot Process Soap Making is one of the best ways to take advantage of the delicate essential oils that can’t survive Cold Process Soap Making. The reason is because in Hot Process Soap Making, the chemical reaction (saponification) has already happened before we add the essential oils. During saponification, the soap temperature rises during the chemical reaction and many delicate essential oils such as citrus cook out and you are left with no scent.

Another benefit to Hot Process Soap Making is that the colors you use stay true. All the natural herbs are still the same color as when you started. You also get to use your soap quicker than Cold Process. When the soap cools, it hardens and can be cut and used - even on the same day as it was made although I do think it is better to let the soap harden overnight.


If you prefer not to work with lye or are new to soap making  - check out our Beginners Class.
