Sydne Spencer taught soap making classes to beginners or advanced students.  Some students have their own a soap making business, now. Depending on the type of soap made, some classes may be suitable for older children too. 

Some people are leery of bringing lye into their home and that’s okay. Keep lye away from children and pets.  Lye is used to make soap from scratch, but there are other ways to make homemade soap. 

Melt and pour soap does not require the use of lye and you can still make extraordinary soaps!  Melt and soaps are more suitable for adults or older children to make, but caution should still be heeded! Hot soap can burn skin, when not handled appropriately.  Young children should not attempt this soap making method, without proper adult supervision and guidance.
