    I would say I am fairly new to soaping (started back in January). I have watched brambleberry videos and I feel her professional videos are great to watch. I love watching the process and seeing the end product.

    I am always in search of other youtubers who have great instructional videos and could provide additional ideas for soaping - whether it be use of oils, colorants or FO.

    I haven't really come across any other good youtubers -- who do you like to watch? and if you want to add in a why you like them that is just a bonus!

    Of course i love reading here and soaking up as much information as I can but sometimes I just like to watch and learn.

    Oh I just love watching videos from Kapia Mera and from Grace to you! There are others but I can't remember the names right now

    I find Katie and Kenny's videos from Royalty Soaps engaging. I like her spunk/character. Though it may be a bit much for some.

    Soaping 101 has informative posts. I haven't watched a ton of soaping vids though. The videos are straightforward and to the point.

    . I totally agree!

    These aren’t necessarily tutorials, but I also love watching Ariane Arsenault, Etsuko Watanabe, Marie Nadeau - who I think is incredibly creative, and Toni at White Milk Soap and Candles, especially when she makes layered soaps!

    All of the above mentioned youtubers. I especially like Kapia Mera's videos. Some that haven't been mentioned yet are Tree Marie (fairly new to videos, but I've loved Teri Endsley's soaps for a long time and her videos are informative). Vibrant Soap, Eve's Garden, Soapish (SMF member TVivian), Ophelia's Soapery, Yellow Cottage Soapery.

    And of course our own @amd - A Misty Dimness Soap

    Pink Dahlia is fun and not overly long. Missouri River has "Short and Sweet" versions of their videos. Handmade in Florida is great, but she doesn't post videos very often.

    I like the SoapGal because she also discusses the business side of her soaping business.

    Right here, silly!
    Ariane Arsenault She's simply wonderful and such a graceful person to watch, and I love when she tests out soaping products. If it wasn't for one of her videos, I never would have heard about Vanyulay silicone molds, whose embed molds are awesome.....expensive, but awesome in both quality and realistic detail!

    Eve's Garden Soaps I love, love, love her distinctive swirling style which produces such wispy and flower-like swirls! The soap in my profile pic was one of my first tries using her hanger swirling technique.

    Royalty Soaps She's both fun/entertaining and informative! The first video of hers that I ever watched (which had me laughing and also got me hooked) was the one in which she gave 6 tips for newbies on surviving the soap community. lol

    Kevin Devine I really like his calm, patient style. If it wasn't for his wonderfully detailed video taking you through the process of making your own silicone embed molds, I never would have been brave enough to try it myself.

    I agree with many of those mentioned. Two more I follow but not mentioned are:

    SnobLove : I have collaborated with Yvonne on a soap and her attention to detailed is outstanding - packaging, soap creation and the entire package was a delight to open and enjoy.
    Edens Secrets : I've been watching Karen make soaps and bath products for years. She kind and I learn a lot not from what she says but from watching.

    I will add a second vote for Tree Marie. If you have trouble with colorants clumping, watch to see how she mixes them with a palette knife. She also has a clever way for splitting her lye for a layered soap.
