Indulge in the luxury of homemade natural soaps!

Preserve the timeless craft of artisan soap making using Soap Maker's Workshop. As you enter the world of hand-crafted soap, you'll discover its moisturizing, glycerin-rich, cleansing and soothing benefits--all-natural soap without added chemicals, preservatives or synthetic fragrances and colorants. Commercial soaps found at local stores can contain chemical additives that not only dry out skin, but also lead to rashes and other irritations due to synthetic additives and the removal of glycerin.

The bonus DVD takes you step-by-step through the soap-making process. Dr. McDaniel will teach you to:
  • Use everyday kitchenware for at-home soap making
  • Set up a safe workspace environment
  • Prepare lye, oils and water to make perfect homemade soap
Filled with 30 recipes and multiple soap-making techniques, Soap Maker's Workshop offers instructions for making bar and liquid soaps, shampoos and more. Using coconut oil for a rich lather, palm oil for a longer-lasting bar, olive oil for soft smooth skin, and natural botanical essential oils and herbs for aromatherapy benefits--you'll never want to leave the shower!

This is a very good instructional-book on soap making. It covers all types of bar soapmaking, with recipes and instructions that are easy to follow. It comes with a DVD. I have gone through books that look "prettier," but with this one, you just know that the authors are very experienced and know a great deal about soap making. I learned a lot, especially how soap can be made out of bison fat! A good resource.
