About Molly Barrett
I am super passionate about one thing - SOAP! I have dedicated years to learning everything I can about soap making. I have decided to share this wealth of information with you in my volumes about creating wonderful, healthy, safe cleansing products.
I still love to make soaps as housewarming presents, going-away gifts, wedding showers- anything that requires a gift. Because, who doesn't need soap?
My soap making hobby - ok, it's more of an obsession - blossomed into an empire where I now share with anyone who asks about making soap for themselves. I make, sell, give, and use my own soaps. I hope to make this world a better place by this specific contribution.
When I'm not elbow-deep in a soap recipe, you can find me relaxing by a cozy fire with my dog and a good cup of coffee. I'm currently a homemaker, an avid reader, and a master soap maker. I live in Nashville with my husband Mark and my son Larry.

"This is the only guide you could need for starting a profitable soap business or just to enjoy making soap for gifts or personal use." - Jill R., 5 Star Review for DIY Natural Hot & Cold Process Soap Crafting: Ultimate Guide to Making & Selling Colorful Natural Soaps
Are you concerned about the chemicals found in most mass-produced, store-bought soap? Do you want your family to stay clean, healthy, and safe? With as often as we use soap every day, limiting the exposure to harmful ingredients is important. When you make your own natural cleaners at home, you can control what's in your soap and what touches your family's skin.
The easiest way to create homemade natural soap is to use the melt and pour soap method. Melt and pour soap for soap making is probably the simplest way to make natural soap for your family to use. In my book, DIY Natural Melt and Pour Soap Crafting, I will show you the melt and pour process of soap making, easy to follow melt and pour soap making recipes, and everything you need to know about DIY soap
I started out just making soap for my family to use, then I started creating gifts for others. That blossomed into an absolute home-based soap empire. I am constantly researching, revising, and revamping anything and everything related to soap so I can share that with you through my books. So far, I have authored four books, all about different ways to make and use soap and natural cleansers made from scratch. Check out my author profile page to see my other books.
Before we get into the actual melt and pour soap making; I share my findings about these four potentially harmful ingredients found in too many soaps and body washes: sulfate, triclosan, parabens, and artificial fragrances. I am sure you will be shocked to read what I found. I know that I was amazed at how these chemicals affect our bodies.
I wanted to arrange the chapters in a logical order, so you are not as confused as I was when I first started. When I began making soap, there were only limited resources available to me in terms of anyone who had real knowledge in the soap making process. My work has been full of much trial and error; I wish I had a book like this when I was starting out.
In the beginning, I will teach you how common chemicals found in commercial soap can harm you and your family. I dug deep into my research and found out the truth. Then, I explain all three soap making processes and why the melt and pour method is the best and easiest to use.
Next, I show you what supplies and equipment you will need and their approximate cost. In the next chapter, I guide you through a step by step soap making process (Chapter 4). After that, we discuss everything under the sun about molds you can use and all of their different variations and types (Chapter 5).
Chapter 6 is all about adding colors and how to use the color wheel. Next up is essential oils that give your soap its scent and great natural healing power (Chapter 7). After that, it is all about my favorite recipes (Chapter 8). Next, I share 15 soap coloring tricks that may truly surprise you, yes they are really that good! (Chapter 9).
Finally, Chapter 10 is all about how to Start, Run, and Grow your Soap Business right from home.
After reading the book, you will become a master on how to make homemade soap using the melt pour soap making method.

DIY Natural Hot & Cold Process Soap Crafting
Ultimate Guide to Making & Selling Colorful Natural Soaps
Dioxane, Sulfate, Diethanolamine are some of the ingredients in commercial soap that I never questioned until I began making soap at home. That’s when my curiosity got the best of me.
After finding just these three, I wanted to call a truce to look for dangerous additives in what I used (and worse yet, my children used) to clean.
That’s when I thought I found the fourth one. Fragrance! How in the world could something that sounds as harmless as fragrance possibly damage your skin? How wrong I was. The definition of fragrance was a far cry in meaning than the one on the soap label.
I began making soap because it was a fun hobby I could share with my children. I continued because it morphed into a successful small business. But I’m now compelled to continue knowing that I’m contributing to the health of my family.
I wanted to arrange the chapters in a logical order. So you are not confused as I was when I first started.
This book is divided into Two Parts. In the first part, it is all about how to master the art of soap making using the Hot Process Method. In the second Part, I show how you can master the soap crafting using the Cold Process Method. At the end of each part, I give you a few recipes to try out your newly acquired skill, but no worries, these recipes are designed to guide you through each and every step from start to finish.
And lastly, in chapter 16, it is all about how to start, run and grow your soap business right from home.
After reading the book, you will become a master on how to make homemade soap using both Hot & Cold Process methods. You will also learn about all soap making supplies, my favorite soap making recipes and most importantly you will know the difference between store bought commercial soap vs. all natural and organic soap made right at home.
If you have any question, I have added my personal email address at the end of the book, so you can contact me.
Sanitize with Soap - DIY Liquid Soap, Bar Soap, Natural Household Cleansers & Sanitizers
We all know that proper handwashing and cleaning surfaces can keep us healthy. What if I told you that most commercial soaps and cleansers are full of additives that aren’t so healthy? In fact, many of these chemicals are just as dangerous to our bodies as those germs we are trying to fight against.
To keep our family healthy, we are constantly washing our hands. The soap that we use becomes an important decision.
Of course, you should purchase this book because you want to create natural cleansers that are safer for our households.
Many antibacterial soaps on the market use chemicals that may disrupt hormone balance. When triclosan was banned by the FDA, companies began using other chemicals like benzalkonium chloride, benzathine chloride, and chloroxylenol (PCMX) instead.
There are natural, gentler, and safer alternatives to the antibacterial chemicals on the market. You can make an extremely effective antibacterial cleanser from home that you can be assured is not only going to keep your family healthy, but will be beneficial to their skin, too.
As much as I can’t stand the thought of viruses entering my home, I cringe just as much at the idea of bringing horrible chemicals into my house for my family to use.
I have been making soaps for over two decades now. I have taught thousands of people how to make soaps, and some have turned these skills into business ventures. In this soapmaking guide, you will find clear instructions, directions, images, and tables that make the entire process easy.
The benefits of making your own soap and household cleaners yourself are enormous. The natural ingredients in homemade soaps not only protect against germs, viruses, and allergens, but these ingredients can oftentimes be better for our skin and the environment of our homes.
A clean home is a healthy and happy home.
In this book, I will take you step-by-step into the craft of making homemade soaps. I have made it my life’s goal of teaching soapmaking to as many people as I can because I firmly believe in the benefits of natural cleansers.
You will learn all about liquid and bar soaps as well as:
- The origins of soapmaking
- Defining key terms for you to gain an understanding of the craft
- Defining the types of soaps
- Describing the different processes for making soap
- What basic ingredients you will need
