Product Description

Product Description


Before you can make the soap, you need to learn how to make the soap base.

1. To start off, select any type of fat you want to use.
(Olive oil is considered the safest fats to use for making a soap base, as well as being optimal for your skin.)

2. Use 5 grams of olive oil per pound of soap. The other ingredients you require for the soap base are lye and water.

3. Mix the lye into cold water.

4. Stir the mixture so that the ingredients combine well together.

5. Next, add the fats to the lye solution you have made. You need to use 6 ounces per pound of soap. 
(Keeping your chosen fat at room temperature prior to adding into the lye solution is recommended, unless you are opting for an extra smooth consistency of soap. In which case proceed with caution as overheating can easily ruin the batch.)

6. Pour it into a soap mold or any container and let it harden up.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lacking in Instructions/Recipe 1 Sep 2013
By David G B - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I expected a basic recipe somewhere in Part 1: Guide to Soap Making. The information there was good - instructions for both cold and hot methods of soap making as well as mention of ingredients. The we move to Part 2: Soap Recipes. Nice recipes, calling first for 'Basic melt and pour soap base' where you pour that into a bowl and cover.

Where do we obtain that basic soap base? It's not mentioned in Part 1, although there is a chapter "Equipment & Supplies You Need." Distilled water, Lye, color or fragrance (if desired) - but no "How To" on creating that necessary 'Basic melt and pour soap base.'

Also, it would have been nice to have photographs of the finished recipes. The front cover looks great - are those from some of the recipes? Which ones?

More questions than answers, though I did not learn how to make natural, easy, handmade soap from scratch from this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Needs soap bases recipes 20 Sep 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Good information on everything except actual recipes for the soap bases needed for the recipes.
I thought the other information was great. I want to try making soap but will need to see an actual recope to start with.

AUTHOR said the book was updated with recipe but that is not true. There is no recipe with exact ingredients and exact measurements. I even checked with Amazon.

1.0 out of 5 stars Everyday soap making 22 Oct 2013
By frankdmayo - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was supposedly written by an experienced soap maker. It lacks a clear understanding of the soap making science. It tells you a lot of history but I'm looking for lessons on MAKING SOAP NOT a history lesson. I want to know how to make MY Soap NOT follow some receipt. The book is scattered, yes there are soap receipt that tell you to use soap base. How about telling me how to make white base, clear base,etc...I found better information that was clearer, more informative and free on the internet. If you want a lot of history and hype then buy the book otherwise stay away and save your money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beginner Information - Not Enough Photos for Beginners Though - 18 Melt & Pour Recipes 2 Oct 2013
By christinemm from The Thinking Mother blog - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am an intermediate cold process soapmaker. This book has basic information and directions which are sufficient for a beginner, it teaches introductory information such as how to do the general process of cold process soapmaking and lye safety. There is a bit about hot process but not enough to be useful enough to do such as the hot process crock pot method. There are not enough step by step photos for a beginner for a book. You may want to read another book or watch YouTube videos (for free).

Lastly after setting up the book as a cold or hot process lye based soap how-to book she gives 18 of the 30 recipes as melt and pour! Her one laundry detergent recipe is not a liquid soap recipe but requires the shaving of a pre-existing bar of soap and adding liquid.

There are not enough photos to be inspirational.

I rate this book 2 stars = I Don't Like It because there is nothing to inspire here, there is basic info but not enough photos of the process, and then not even a dozen real soap recipes using lye.

There are better books on the market plus lots of free resources on the web now including free detailed tutorials on YouTube with free recipes included.

I have made about a dozen soap loafs (cold process) in my life and I learned nothing from this book.
