Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The pure luxury of soaps made with coconut butter, almond oil, aloe vera, oatmeal, and green tea is one of life's little pleasures. And with the help of author Anne-Marie Faiola, it's easy to make luscious, all-natural soaps right in your own kitchen. This collection of 32 recipes ranges from simple castile bars to intricate swirls, embeds, and marbled and layered looks. Begin with a combination of skin-nourishing oils and then add blueberry puree, dandelion-infused water, almond milk, coffee grounds, mango and avocado butters, black tea, or other delicious ingredients -- and then scent your soap with pure essential oils. Step-by-step photography guides you through every stage of cold-process soapmaking.

Includes index.

Library Journal Review

There is a science to soapmaking, a chemical process of balancing ingredients to create a variety of different soaps. Faiola is a professional soapmaker and author of a previous manual, Soap Crafting. This volume appears to be a revision and update of that book, but nevertheless it is a lovely collection of soap recipes, with stylish illustrations and great step-by-step instructions. The author's skill and expertise is clearly on display. The principles of cold-process soapmaking are introduced, including a glossary of terms and safety requirements. Ingredients from oils to additives are covered in detail. The bulk of the book is composed of 32 different recipes grouped by type-simple soaps, beauty and skin care, and more sophisticated soaps. Readers should be aware that soapmaking requires an investment of time, space, and ingredients. VERDICT Great for the serious crafter or those in search of captivating soap recipes. © Copyright 2016.
