No problem. I absolutely have you covered.

-My award winning 'The Dog and I' branded dog soap recipe - the very same recipe I use in my business. I am the only person I know of who makes soap for this sector on the scale that I do. I am sharing this recipe because I want you to make soap for your dogs too, for their health, the environment and to reduce our plastic footprint and I don't mind how it happens.
SUPPORT! Yes the most important part of this is my ongoing support through my facebook group Soap Glorious Soap where you can also chat to other like minded individuals . I really want you to succeed and no question is too small.
You can watch the videos again and again and of course, pause, rewind etc if you need to revisit anything.
The course is hosted on Thinkific which is a well respected and secure learning resource.
This online course consists of 2 x 25 minute, step by step, professionally recorded video demonstrations of both cold and hot process soap making exactly as I do in my full day workshops (which costs £115.00) plus, you have the added bonus of being able to watch them again and again as often as you wish.
My 27 page Soap Making Made Easy eBook making this a great value package and unique in that it offers tuition in both cold and hot process soap making.
My advice is to watch the videos first and read the eBook to get a good understanding of what is involved and choose which method is best for you.
You can then gather your equipment and ingredients together all of which is clearly explained.
The equipment is on the whole general kitchen grade jugs and scales etc but you will need a stick blender and digital thermometer.
Resources for ingredients are included at the end of your eBook. The basic soap recipe uses coconut oil, olive oil and cocoa butter. You will also find a blog I have written on the subject really useful which you can read on the Soapcoach website.
Unfortunately I am unable to post a soap making kit out to you as Sodium Hydroxide is classed as Dangerous Goods and I have not yet located an affordable courier who will accept it. I can recommend a soap making bundle from The Soap Kitchen, however, it uses shea butter rather than cocoa butter, but is otherwise similar although unscented but it is perfect as a one click purchase to get you started.
The vast majority of people do like to watch the tutorials more than once to fully absorb the process and get a good understanding. You are encouraged to join my facebook support group where you can ask questions and see what other students have achieved.

I was a total beginner to soapmaking but by following Keri's videos and using the course e-book I made a batch of soap that I am totally delighted with.
Response from The Soap Coach:Thank you so much Rachael. Great to hear that you have made a fab batch of soap 😊
