Comments: This was the second book I bought on soapmaking. I haven't found another book as good as this one since! The recipes come out perfectly every time, and it's chock full of information and references. I highly recommend this to anyone making soap.

Comments: I thought this book had a lot of good information for beginning soapmakers. Some of it is fairly outdated and she does get pretty pedantic in spots. But, overall, a very good introduction to soap making!
"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
