Extracting Color from Nature: a soap maker's guide to using botanical extracts in handmade soap
Featuring 30+ lessons and videos with color updates and bonus content.

Or view the individual courses

In my book, The Natural Soap Color Palette, I discuss how to extract the color of out nature and put it into your soap with infusions, teas, and slurries. And now, we're taking a deep dive into coloring soaps naturally as I show you exactly how I do it with in-person videos PLUS bonus tips!

These Tutorials and Master Classes will guide you through the process of coloring your soap naturally with macerations (teas, decoctions, oil infusions, and slurries) while saving your valuable time and preventing soapy fails. PLUS, I show you tips, ticks, and design techniques along the way.

Here are just some of the topics covered in the Extracting Color from Nature series:

  • Understanding macerations (how to create and use teas, decoctions, infusions, and slurries)
  • Comparison of hot vs. cold infusions
  • Learn my hybrid infusion technique that will provide rich colors in as little as one week!
  • Various mini-tutorials along the way, including painting soaps with tinctures, swirls, and top decorations.
  • Using slurries to color and scent your natural soaps.
  • Micro-batch testing
  • and more!
