This is my favourite soap recipe book!
I love it so much I bought a copy online through abebooks.
Her recipes can be a bit pricey, and use a lot of different scents, but they yield 2 lb batches, so not very much is used per recipe.

She has great descriptions of what the soap will be like once finished ("Hard soap, large bubbles and lather, good for dry skin") and I find it very useful when choosing what to make. I made the honey almond blossom soap two days ago, my first batch ever (though, I am a chemist so I didn't anticipate any problems) and it looks lovely!
I'm excited to try all her recipes :D I highly recommend this book for the recipes and the lovely layout.
