This book gave me all the information I needed to get started with cold press soap making. It has great recipes and easy to follow directions.

This book is my cold process soap making bible! For the small scale soap maker, the amounts of ingredients needed are on a smaller scale, most other books you need to half the amounts given. I found this book easy to use, and includes an SAP value chart for you to explore and make your own creations. Other books do not contain this valuable chart, and a person would have to find an online vendor that has one to calculate your oils. The first time I used this book my batch of soap turned out perfectly, and I was able to donate a few bars of my cinnamon goat milk soap to a church fundraiser.
