We hold day soap making courses in France at Melinda's restored farmhouse in the Dordogne in the spring & summer and at the nearby Coteau Belpech in Autumn/Winter. These soap making courses are run for a minimum of two people so if you feel like a break, you are welcome to contact us at any time and we will try and run a course to fit in with your plans.
The atmosphere is informal to say the least with two very large poodles usually in attendance around the soap pot.
We are situated in a tiny commune 8kms from four of the prettiest villages in France and the area is renowned for its gourmet food (Melinda doesn't do cooking but there are always some great cheeses and salads for lunch)
Melinda's iconic, original soap making book has just been re-released as a second edition with re-formulated, superfatted recipes. You can buy your signed edition here.
At this one day course we teach you how to make completely natural bar soaps from a variety of botanical oils including olive oil, coconut oil shea butter and essential oils.
If you want to learn how to make gorgeous, natural, creams lotions and balms using only botanical oils, butters, waxes and essential flower oils and waters that are perfect for your skin, this course is for you.
This one day course will give you an overview of the challenges ahead and is guaranteed to set you on the right road and to save you an absolute fortune.

This is Melinda's latest book on soap and cream making and it has a section on business. It has just been re-released and the only version available is the American version but it is shown with metric measurements so no problem translating the formulas.
