3.0 out of 5 stars Photos would have been very helpful! 19 Jan. 2014

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm an advanced soap-maker, and my husband gave me this book as a gift. While it does contain lots of basic, helpful information, I was expecting more in the way of color tutorials. The authors explained how to make various swirls, etc, but if I didn't already know how to do them, I would have been confused. Pictures would have been VERY helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars happy soap maker 25 Oct. 2013
By ssmith - Published on
I was looking forward to the release of this book, and it did NOT disappoint! Packed full of great information, I’m ready and excited to tackle more advanced soaping techniques. I loved the section on all the different oils and butters to use in soap recipes and I’m excited to now naturally color my soap with herbs and create my own signature essential oil blends. Thanks for writing this much-needed book and encouraging me to step up my soap-making game!

5.0 out of 5 stars Next step for new soapmakers 24 Jun. 2014
By Pastells - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the next book to buy after you have gone past the beginner stage of soap making. Lots of information, including chapters on incorporating natural colorants and herbs in your soaps, comprehensive information on oils and fats, and how to make soap using room temperature cold process and thermal heat transfer. I returned "Essential soapmaking" by the same authors, but absolutely love this book despite the lack of photos. If you are into making hot process soaps, this is not the book for you. If you are into making swirls and making pretty looking soaps, you are better off buying "Soap crafting" by Anne Marie Faiola.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource on soap making! 12 Feb. 2014
By marialex - Published on
This definitely is a fairly comprehensive book on soap making, outlining what to use and how to use it. There was some overlapping information with the "Essential Soap Making", but I can appreciate that for those who may just purchase this book. If you are interested in knowing more about the art of soap making, this book would be a great addition to your library!
