Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Soap--gentle, all natural, and handmade--makes a wonderful gift...for yourself or a friend! Create healthier, more beautiful, more fragrant soaps than anything you can find in a store, for a fraction of the cost, using simple equipment you probably already own. Just start with a basic bar of white soap or produce yours from scratch. Add therapeutic and aromatic accents. Once you've tried the 20 recipes for hand-milled soaps, go on to bath salts, bath oils, bubble baths, massage oils, facial scrubs, and bath tea bags. Full-color photos show you how beautiful your soaps can be, and captioned illustrations explain each step. Complete recipes cover a variety of enticing creations: Peppermint Refreshment Soap, Mango Mint Shampoo Bar, Milk and Honey Soap, and Lavender Citrus Soap. Translucent Soap Jewels turn glycerine soap into giant emeralds, amethysts, garnets, and quartz. Bath salts with eucalyptus oil clear head colds. Grate colored transparent soap into an opaque white soap base to get Confetti Soap. Decorate the soaps with paints or decoupage, and wrap them in elegant paper. There's truly something for everybody! Published in hardcover as Beautiful Handmade Natural Soaps. The author lives in Brentwood Bay, British Columbia. 128 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 10.

Synopsis:

Contains 20 recipes for making your own soaps using essential oils, herbs and flowers. Start with a basic bar of white soap, or learn how to make a bar from scratch. The book also offers ideas for bath salts, bath oils, bubble baths, massage oils, facial scrubs and bath tea bags.

Synopsis:

“Soap is...one of the better crafts to consider as gifts...supplies directions for more than 20 different kinds of hand-milled soap, an easier process than starting from lye...instructions extend to bath oils and salts and to packaging, labeling, and creating a munificence of fragrance. Step-by-step descriptions are boldly illustrated with color photographs. Who could resist all-natural camomile oatmeal soap or effervescent all-natural champagne bubble bath?”—Booklist.
