Welcome to The Nova Studio Online!
We’re a trio of women (Lori Nova Endres, Ruth Esteves, & Cassie Durant), dedicated to the cause of helping people make their own artisan soap, natural skincare, and all sorts of fun bath & body products. Our students make these products for themselves, their families & friends, and many are driven entrepreneurs who have started their own businesses. We’re here to collaborate & support you in your creative journey. We have a group of amazing teachers, willing to share their secrets & techniques. Currently, you can “learn from us” many different ways, all from the comfort of your own home. Reach out & let us know how we can serve you best!
We have lots of wonderful resources for small business soapers, and our latest two offer help in key areas of business development; social media and branding. Are you overwhelmed at the thought of how to effectively manage your online presence using social media? Is your brand on point, catching the attention of the audience you’re hoping to reach? Are you floundering with indecision in a sea of information? If so, you’ll love Kenna’s newest offerings:

Now available – a brand-new Video eClass on Natural Perfumery. While we haven’t invented a way to smell through your computer, in 2.5 hours of time, Lori will cover as much as possible to get you comfortable working with essential oils, blending, & making your own perfumes. Click through to the description to see what’s included – like Lori’s detailed 13-page Perfume Class Handout, with info about using pure essential oils & absolutes to create 3 different types of all-natural fragrances (solids, alcohol, & oil-based). You’ll get instant access to both resources upon ordering.
Want something for free right now? Check out Lori’s latest blog post with a video explanation of how to use our new Perfume Blending Worksheet.
We’ve been receiving a lot of interest lately for more information for teachers – makers and crafters looking to expand their businesses by incorporating an element of teaching. Have you seen Lori’s Make Money Teaching Classes Video eClass? It includes instant & unlimited access to the nearly 2 hour session. Now, we’re offering an additional opportunity to speak with Lori LIVE online for only $20 more. That’s a lot more affordable than a private consult, with the benefit of having other like-minded people on the call as well. Plus, everyone will get access to the recording after the session. Read all about it by clicking here. Space is limited to 12 students – so don’t wait. Also, check out our brand new page full of free resources just for teachers.
Live Online Q+A Session coming up on 2/28/17 – join us & speak with Lori live!
SoapMaker 3 Professional Software for Makers can keep track of the recipes you make, the oils, scents, colorants, # of bars, cost per bar of soap, including the price of packaging. Use it to keep track of inventory, costs, & recipes (including non-soap recipes like lotions, candles & much more). Add photos to your recipes, round out the records with notes, comments, details, & track your customers. Super soap savvy teacher & co-owner Ruth Esteves has used SoapMaker 3 software for years, and recommends it so highly that we decided to purchase a block of certificates and pass on a 10% savings to you!
