Comments: If you are looking for a very useful book that focuses on melt & pour soapmaking, this is *the* one. Kaila is one of the queens of melt & pour and her recipes are clear, easy to follow, and produce great soap every time. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is just starting out or even to those with some experience.

Customer Testimonial

"I use (and love, love, love!) your Pearlesecent Micas which get me compliments all the time, from coworkers to makeup artists at swanky cosmetic counters. It's cool because people are always asking me where I bought my eyeshadow and it's satisfying to say, "I didn't buy it-- I made it!" As someone with a darker-than-medium skin tone, it's great to be able to blend my own colours that actually show up on me, e.g., 1 part Golden Glow to 1 part Matte Orange = "Yummy Peach"."
