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.
