This is a wonderful introduction to soap making. It includes 12 recipes to make soap and the instructions are very easy to understand. If you are new to soap making I expect it's a bit like taking up baking - you need a few moulds and cutters but once you get over the initial gathering of materials it could be lots of fun and save quite a bit of money. The emphasis is on natural ingredients - essential oils, medicinals such as coconut milk or vitamin E and natural colourings such as rose clay for pink or alkanet root powder for purple. The soaps are so pretty but look natural so would be nice to sell as natural vegan soap which is more durable and longer lasting than some vegan soaps which don't use caustic soda. Elizabeth has included sections on how to use up soap scraps, how to make nugget soap, how to stamp and how to make swirled soap. If you dream of making your own soap which is free from the heap of additives it's sold with in the shops then this is the perfect book.
