Summary
A full-colour, step by step, photographic guide to making soap, significantly updated and expanded from the first edition, which has now sold out. An exceptionally easy-to-follow and beautifully photographed guide to making cold-process soap. The book starts with a comprehensive yet very readable section on the different types of oils, fragrances, additives and colouring available, as well as a list of all the equipment you will need, most of which is readily available in most homes. There's a wide range of different soap recipes to choose from, from vanilla and star anise, to honey and wheatgerm and black cardamom & argan oil - something for all tastes and styles. All beautifully shot in gorgeous settings. The book ends with a glossary of soaping terms, an extremely useful trouble-shooting guide, and a comprehensive list of worldwide suppliers and online forums
