My students are always asking for soap making book recommendations, so I thought it was about high time that I write a blog about some of my favourite soap making books.
A question that I am frequently asked by participants in my soap making classes is:
“Can I sell my handmade soap?”
I love flowers and plants in general, so it stands to reason that when it comes to adding a fragrance to my soap then essential oils are the obvious choice.
There are so many oils for soap making that you will be spoiled for choice. You can use endless combinations of them to produce different bars of soap with different qualities such as cleansing, conditioning, creaminess etc.
Soap or sanitiser? That is the question. It’s certainly one of the many questions being asked in this strange world that we now find ourselves in.
Soap making involves science and art. Whereas art is the fun and exciting part of making soap, it seems that many people feel apprehensive when they see or hear the ‘S’ word (science).
Variety is the spice of life as they say, and spices can certainly bring variety to your soap and a whole lot more too.
When you start out in the wonderful world of soap making there is lots of terminology that you will need to get your head round.
It’s that time of year again when you can’t escape from being bombarded with pink when you are out shopping. It’s everywhere you look and the retailers’ shelves are bulging with pink products.
