Publisher Comments:

Soapy Alchemy Handmade soap is a living thing, the product of a kind of folk alchemy that has been lost to all but a small number of craftspeople and individualists in our society. Now, Merilyn Mohr has created a complete introduction to the art of home soapmaking — a craft that appeals both to our sense of economy (consider the mounting costs of hand soap, detergents, toothpaste and shampoos) and to our sense of simple aesthetics. With years of experience, including having operated a cottage soapmaking business, Merilyn Mohr demystifies the soapmaking process, taking the beginner step-by-step through the procedure, assuring success with the very first batch. Illustrated, simplified directions for making: - fragrant hand soaps - inexpensive laundry soap - leather soap - insecticidal soap for plants - shaving lather - toothpaste - herbal soaps and shampoos
