Have you ever wanted to make your own soap?

I've been hooked on making soap since I made my first bar a little over a year ago. I feel so lucky to have found a medium that has limitless possibilities and such practicality all in one.

One of the most frequently asked questions that comes my way is how to get started. I kind of assume everyone knows about the fabulous duo, Anne-Marie and Debbie, Brambleberry and SoapyLove but in case you do not- take a look at these fabulous places to get started.

Anne-Marie, owner of Brambleberry is also known as the Soap Queen and even has her own Soap TV spot. With everything from soap, lotion and makeup- her website is a feast for the eyes. Like Christmas morning online!http://http//

Debbie Chialtas, owner, soaper and author recently added her starter kits to the Brambleberry line up. http://http// This is the finest place I have seen to recommend getting started in the world of soap.

So whether you wish to make just a few bars or more, I wanted to share the names of some of my favorite soapers in the land.

Thank you so much Lauren! You know I'm a huge fan of yours. :)

Thanks for recommending my kits to your readers. Also, I second your recommendation of Anne-Marie's videos. They are so clear and informative. A great resource for soapers of any experience level!

Thanks again and have a great weekend!

Smooches right back at yah Debbie! That pop tart kit is the best place I have seen to get started. Keep up the great work.

Agreed. I have learned so much from Anne-Marie's Soap Queen TV, Bramble Berry's TeachSoap forum, and Debbie's "Soapylove" book. All are great resources for soapers! Thanks for sharing this, sunbasilgarden!
