NATURAL SOAP: Second Edition

Melinda Coss    Book Number: 85752    Product format: Paperback

Techniques and recipes for beautiful handcrafted soaps, lotions and balms, this will save you a fortune. More than 40 easy-to-follow recipes focus on natural, eco-friendly ingredients to make pure and gentle soaps that sooth allergy-prone skin. You will enjoy mixing, moulding and packaging indulgent delights like Fig and Honey Exfoliant Bars, Sleeping Beauty Heavy Night Cream, Gardeners' Skin Balm, Dead Sea Mud Spa Treatment, and festive Christmastime fragrance soaps using cinnamon, orange and cloves or how to add seaweed packed with vitamins and minerals as a great additive to your soap. If you replace some of the water content with aloe vera juice or gel, the soap will soothe even the most sensitive of skins. Calendula and goat's milk may look smelly and horrid when you mix it with the lye, but it makes a beautiful creamy soap that is very mild. Add a dash of chamomile and lavender essential oils for "flavour". All about basic soap methods, cutting, insulating, gelling and troubleshooting, curing and what happens through the saponification process. Every botanical or animal oil or fat has its own SAP value. With charts and all about colouring, scents and sensibilities, there is even a lovely shaving mousse and a shampoodle for doggy washing plus special effects to make swirls and layers or landscapes into your soap. The author reveals her trade secrets. Beautiful colour photography and clear layout. 144pp in large softback.
