A full-colour, step by step, photographic guide to making soap, significantly updated and expanded from the first edition, which has now sold out. An exceptionally easy-to-follow and beautifully photographed guide to making cold-process soap. The book starts with a comprehensive yet very readable section on the different types of oils, fragrances, additives and colouring available, as well as a list of all the equipment you will need, most of which is readily available in most homes. There's a wide range of different soap recipes to choose from, from vanilla and star anise, to honey and wheatgerm and black cardamom & argan oil - something for all tastes and styles. All beautifully shot in gorgeous settings. The book ends with a glossary of soaping terms, an extremely useful trouble-shooting guide, and a comprehensive list of worldwide suppliers and online forums.

Review:

An inspiring and straightforward introduction to soap making. The book includes just the right balance of technical detail, scientific explanation and practical advice to guide the beginner soap-maker. In addition, the step by step instructions are complemented by numbered photographs which clearly illustrate the soap making process. It is written in a friendly, helpful style, showing the experience of the author, and building confidence in the reader to have a go. The photographs and styling show-case a high-quality end product which would satisfy those who wish to create home made products as gifts. Andrew Hoskins This publisher has a fantastic series of books on a great many crafts; however, "Make Your Own Soap" is a topic I've wanted to know more about for some time. I purchase handmade soaps and have always admired the craftsmanship of well made soap. Not only am I looking for quality ingredients and a soothing scent, I also want my soap to look like a bit of artistry went into it. This book will help you achieve all of these things. This book is a wonderful resource for a beginner soap maker. It gives readers the basic steps to making soap using the "cold process" and walks you through it from the very beginning. Everything from equipment needed, an explanation of base oils, additives, fragrancing, and colouring to the final clean up, it is all covered! The photographs are excellent illustrations of method and will assist you with the process. Supplies needed are easily identifiable and my favorite part is the "troubleshooting" section at the end. Does your batter look curdled? Have your additives sunk to the bottom? There's help with that. Overall, a valuable addition to any craft or hobby enthusiast's book shelf. Melissa Legacy Thought the book was very good, and easy to follow, I have made one batch and intend to make another very shortly. Bubbles (from Amazon.co.uk review) I received this book as a Birthday Present and just love it! It has easy to understand instructions and has good clear pictures to help you make your first bar of soap using the cold process. I can't wait to have a go and would thoroughly recommend it. It's a handy size book too - fits easily into your handbag to read "on the go". Mrs Clark (from Amazon.co.uk review)
