About the Instructor:

Summer Reese, Instructor

Summer is the founder and creator of Inspiration Soap Co. She grew up in Las Vegas, but currently resides in beautiful British Columbia with her husband Mark and their son Casey. She initially got into soap making when she moved to Canada in 2012. As a girl who grew up in the desert, she found herself out of her element during the rainy days of Vancouver and not quite sure what to do with all her time indoors. Trying to keep herself occupied with what felt like endless hours on the internet, she stumbled across a class for cold process soap making.

She spent two hours in the class learning a very basic lesson on how to make cold process soap, but when she left she was unable to think about anything else other than making soap! She spent months learning as much as possible through trial and error and eventually her batches got better and better.

Summer began selling products in 2013 at local craft markets and by 2016 her soaps and bath bombs were being sold to stores and direct-to-consumer across Canada and the US!

In 2018, Summer took a “baby break” from soap making and brought a tiny human into the world in May 2019. After almost two years away, she has finally returned to soap making! She still loves it as much as when she started, it is her creative outlet that she successfully turned into a business.
