The most comprehensive guide to soapmaking ever!

From the author of the best-selling The Natural Soap Book comes this illustrated guide to making over 40 specialty soaps — from exquisite stained-glass, marbled, and layered soaps to soothing masseuse bars, hardworking laundry soap, and practical liquid soaps.

Through clear, step-by-step instructions, master soapmaker Susan Miller Cavitch leads you through every step of the soapmaking process and teaches you how to:

*craft exotic and practical soaps in your home

* blend and use essential oils and natural colorants

* design multi-colored, marbled, and imprinted soaps

* understand the chemistry of soapmaking and create your own personal bars

Plus, you'll get tips on how to get started selling soaps!

Synopsis:
