Soap-making is not for the faint-hearted but this is an excellent guide with a huge variety of smells, soap types and base oils. It actually explains which oils do what and the ratios to get the effect you want.
Need more suds, use this oil. Want more moisture, use that oil...

Excellent resource! Step-by-step photos make it easy to use for beginners. Lots of helpful information makes it useful for those of us who have already done soap-making.

This is an impressive and comprehensive book. The language and terms are all well explained along with great charts and tables that clearly indicate the chemical combinations for this craft/hobby. I found the explanations answered several questions that had not been addressed by other books in this field.
I'm excited to make a project or two from this... maybe add it to my own shelves.
