    Alicia has done it again!, June 26, 2007
    This review is from: The Everything Soapmaking Book: Recipes and Techniques for Creating Colorful and Fragrant Soaps (Everything: Sports and Hobbies) (Paperback)

    I’ve been an artisian soaper for over seven years. I found this book wonderful! Very well written with up-to-date 21st century information. The essential oil section is especially useful for knowing which essential oils that “come through” in cold process or hot process soap. I had to learn most of this the hard way through trial and error, and spending alot of money on research.

    There is so much information in this book that was very well researched and a great benefit to the soap maker at any level. There are several techniques that are simplified from other books and information on the internet such as liquid soapmaking in a slow cooker.

    There are discussions of soap casting, making geodes, swirling, gemstones, hand milling, and so much more to make this a VERY complete discussion of soap making.

    Once you have mastered soap making and want to start selling, Alicia has added a very well written section on selling. Where to sell how to sell and useful information on what to expect when selling.

    The only drawback is that the publisher did not use color photographs and add more of them to the book. This really would have enhanced the overall quality of the book if they had used all of Alicia’s photos and in color.

    This review is from: The Everything Soapmaking Book: Recipes and Techniques for Creating Colorful and Fragrant Soaps (Everything: Sports and Hobbies) (Paperback)

    I have read 6 other Soap Making Books in the past 6 months and this one puts them all to shame. Superbly written, concise information, not a bunch of information that is useless. Explains the different properties of the oils, EO’s and benefits of each. Helps you to become a truly gifted soap maker.
