I loved this book. It's one of the first I have read on the topic, but I liked the really beautiful photos accompanying the soap recipes, the pages identifying potential problems associated with making your own soap. There are pages identifying suppliers and vendors. Just a lovely book--I don't buy a lot of books anymore but this is one I would buy.

Great introductory book for soap making. Explains how to make soap from scratch. Has great information on the materials one needs, a variety of essential oils for scenting soaps, etc. A nice resource for people interested in making their own soap (and not just scenting and coloring ready made soap base).
