Making Soap from Scratch is a wonderful book for a beginner. I have always been intrigued by the history of soap making and how to's of the craft. This book is a perfect guide for those who are ready to embark on a soap making venture. This book would be an excellent guidebook for a class. It is well written and easy to understand and best of all, as you read you feel motivated to try - and that you will succeed. ( )

This is an excellent comprehensive guide for a beginner soap-maker, like me. Everything is set out clearly an concisely. From making basic soaps to fancy ones and also ideas for packaging and selling. What I also thought was excellent was the safety advice, at first I thought it was a bit full-on, but you're going to be mixing chemicals and you need to treat them with respect. ( )

Making Soap from Scratch: The Complete Beginner's Guide to Natural Handmade Soaps by Vautier, Summer
Good coverage of the basics but would benefit from step by step methods plus pictures akin to a cook book.

This is an excellent book for those who are interested in making their own natural soaps. The information looks thorough and complete, but it's presented in a light-hearted manner that makes it very readable. Safety precautions are well outlined, and there are also reference chapters that include information on fragrances and essential oils - information I could see even an experienced soap-maker going back to again and again as they try out new recipes. The book also includes a substantial amount of recipes to try. The instructions are written out clearly and succinctly, making this a great book for a beginner, but there's enough reference material and recipes in here to please a veteran soap-maker, too. Well done. ( )

Making Soap from Scratch: Complete Beginner's Guide to Natural Handmade Soaps by Summer Vautierc is a well-organized and clearly written handbook. The author walks the reader through each step of the process while providing background and safety information. The experience of reading this book was equivalent to having the writer available to demonstrate the process in a workshop setting. This guide would likely benefit those who have never attempted to make soap as well as veteran crafters. The treasure trove of recipes included adds great value to this resource.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to provide a review. The author was able to communicate her knowledge and expertise to this novice in a pleasant manner while pointing out potential dangers and pitfalls of the process. A great find for adult crafters and gift makers. ( )
