Cons: Each receipe calls for a different size soap box. I made soap boxes at home last weekend out of wood for the first basic soap receipe, but the next receipe calls for a larger box. The next recipe for an even larger box. That's annoying, I don't want a hobby of making soap boxes. I want a hobby of making soap!
Also - for some reason none of the recipes suggested use butters, only oils. I'm not sure if that is so readers don't have to buy a ton of different ingredients or just to keep it simple.
Overall, its a keeper and I'm glad I have it to refer to. But I've quickly realized that I need to learn to make my own receipes.
Within a few days of receiving this book from Amazon I had made my first wooden soap mold and cutter. The author makes it clear that this is not required, but I wanted to! I had just about every ingredient and tool on hand and made my first batch of 4 oil soap, which is now curing and waiting to be shared with family and friends. I plan on making every recipe in the book and then creating my own. LOVE IT LOVE IT
I used to make soap many years ago when I had time and no children. Now that my children are getting older and not under foot, I feel like I can return to a fun hobby. But because I remembered the dangers I wanted to refresh my mind about everything before beginning.
This book was an excellent refresher. She talked about safety, basic recipes, additives, saponification etc. I was appreciative of the pictures that really helped and added to the text. They were clear, showed exactly what the author was trying to demonstrate and were in color. The text was simple without being chatty. The directions were clear and concise and listed the dangers without going overboard into the scary. The recipes were nice and the ones I have tried have turned out fine.
I thought it was well worth the money. I would buy it again.
