Inside the Make Your Own Academy you will also get access to the Simple Making Method booklet to always refer to the ingredients categories and functions at all times. Every recipe inside the Academy is formulated with any of the above ingredients, and I provide you with suggestions on how to substitute ingredients you might not have access to.
What if I can't source the ingredients in my country?
You'll also be taught how to substitute ingredients inside the Simple Making Method lesson. Additionally, every new recipe will include possible substitutions with specific details that will guide you through, so you can create your own product according to your needs.
What is the complexity level of the recipes?
All the recipes are designed to be simple, with up to 10 ingredients. Each recipe is customisable so you will never feel stuck with not having a specific ingredient or not knowing how to replace it. To help you make progress, we will send you easier recipes before we give you access to recipes that require slightly more advanced formulation skills.
How is the Make Your Own Academy different from the courses?
The Make Your Own Academy is designed if you love making simple DIYs and would like to make this into an affordable hobby to fit nicely around your lifestyle.
The Bottega Zero Waste online courses take deeper dives into specific crafts: soap making, solid shampoo & conditioner bars making, and natural make up. They also give you insights and help if you are thinking about starting your own handmade products business
Do I need to take the other courses first?
Not at all! You can take them after or at the same time while you are inside the Academy. Our Academy members also enjoy exclusive discounts on our courses which are not available anywhere else.
I tried checking out but the price shown is not the same, why?
If you live within the EU, we are required to collect the taxes applicable in your country, so you will notice taxes have been added. If you are purchasing with your company's account, you can enter your tax ID number to remove the taxes.
