The pure luxury of soaps made with coconut butter, almond oil, aloe vera, oatmeal, and green tea is one of life's little pleasures. And with the help of author Anne-Marie Faiola, it's easy to make luscious, all-natural soaps right in your own kitchen. This collection of 32 recipes ranges from simple castile bars to intricate swirls, embeds, and marbled and layered looks. Begin with a combination of skin-nourishing oils and then add blueberry puree, dandelion-infused water, almond milk, coffee grounds, mango and avocado butters, black tea, or other delicious ingredients -- and then scent your soap with pure essential oils. Step-by-step photography guides you through every stage of cold-process soapmaking.

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.
