Comments: This is a decent book but some of the recipes include numerous ingredients that are not very common. In addition, the curing time for many of the soaps is pretty long. It did give us ideas for mixing scents for our other soaps.

Comments: This book is full of easy-to-follow instructions and GREAT ideas for bath sets. Everything is so simple, and the pictures make it all easier. One tip: In order to get the "tapioca" look of her soaps, you must use normal soap, not the microwavable stuff at the craft store. My favorite: Ivory, because it's pure and you can get it in big packs for cheap at Costco.

"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. "
