You love pampering yourself with fragrant, decadent soaps. Now imagine all the lovely bar and liquid soaps you can create for yourself or to give as gifts, using combinations of natural oils and colors. And if you're allergic to fragrances, no problem. You can make sure your handcrafted soaps don't contain any.
Lather up! The Complete Idiot's Guide® to Making Natural Soaps spells out everything new soap-makers need to know to create all kinds of natural soaps.
Welcome to the fun adventure that is natural, homemade soap! As you'll soon discover, soap-making is an exciting pastime where you can really get creative. The oil, fragrance, and color combinations you can put together in your soaps are nearly endless!
One word of warning, though: you'll soon find yourself nearly totally preoccupied with soap! (We don't think that's a bad thing, though!) You'll think about new combinations as you travel to work. You'll join other soap-makers on online bulletin and discussion boards, swapping recipes and getting new ideas. But it'll go further than that.
You'll amaze your family and friends with your talents as a full-fledged soap-maker, and you're sure to garner lots of "Oooh!"s and "Aaah!"s as loved ones see what you've created. You'll probably get some orders or "Would you make me some soap?" requests, too!
But perhaps best of all is the fragrance oils that will fill your home with the most delicious and intoxicating scents on "soaping day". And do we even have to mention how soft and smooth your skin will become when you start using your own natural soaps? You'll never want to go back to mass-produced store-bought soap again!
The book you hold in your hands is your one-stop guide to help you get started making your own natural soaps at home. Let your creativity soar, and above all, have fun!
