Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
With the rise of interest in aromatherapy and natural fragrances, homemade soap has increased in popularity. Herbs and essential oils play a large part in the finished products in both of these books, whose authors have written other books on soapmaking. Browning's melt-and-pour projects use commercially available soap bases that can be melted in a microwave or double boiler and scented and molded to suit the maker's taste. Her recipes include bath salts and oils as well as soaps. Maine has a natural soap business and makes everything from scratch. She offers instructions and formulas for all types of soap, including bath soap, shampoo, pet soaps, and even poison ivy remedies. Both books are recommended for public libraries.
