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.
