Instructor

Diana Shepard from Diana’s Soap Garden

Hi there! My name is Diana Shepard, I am a wife, a mom, a baker, and soapmaker. Shortly after beginning my career as a baker I learned how to make my own soap. I had cut processed foods and unnecessary chemicals out of my diet, next I needed to do the same for my skin and hair. I made it for myself and my family for 2 or 3 years before I started getting requests to sell it. My small business was born! It was a bit of a surprise that my favorite hobby was helping pay the bills, and allowing me to spend more time with my husband and children. I have extensive experience with all natural soapmaking, as well as using different techniques to create 'pictures' in loaves of soap, and have formulated a recipe for almost everything you might want to make to pamper yourself with the best ingredients possible without breaking the bank. My career as a baker trainer has shown me that I have a love of sharing my experiences and knowledge with anyone who wants to learn.
