Exclusive Recipe Directory

OVER 1000 Soap & Cosmetic Designs & Recipes

The recipe directory in the Thermal Mermaid Soap Maker's Course includes not just hand made artisan soap. It includes, body wash, shampoo and conditioner, bath bombs, lip gloss, face masks, lotions, body butters, and just about anything you can think of to package and enjoy during any luxury spa session or home bath. Years ago we discovered that amazon books are wrought with fake recipes that make no sense. We decided to publish our recipes with notes and often video tutorials so that you really can make these at home. The recipes found in our directory are crafted by us, made by us, and in every case packaged and sold by us. No manipulated recipes that are made just to get you to buy our ingredients (we do not sell ingredients!), and no fake recipes! Everything in the directory is worked through first with artisan love, and then published for you to have.
