My Thoughts-
I was very excited to learn how to make homemade soap. I’ve always thought they’d make a fun. personal gift for family and friends.
“The Joy of Melt & Pour Soap Crafting” says it’s for beginners to the everyday crafter. At first I was a bit overwhelmed with the book, it used a lot of terms I had never heard of and talked like I knew something about soap making. But I decided to not give up on the book right away and I’m glad I didn’t. By the end of the book I couldn’t wait to head to the craft store and get everything I needed to make my own soap. I felt ready and knew I’d make some great soap. Maybe not perfect soap but at least better then I would have if I didn’t have this book.
Below are some photos of the steps I did in making my special soap. I went with a clear base, green Tea & Cucumber scent and added a few special “toys” to make them what I’d call “Cucumber Tea surprise”. They didn’t turn out perfect but I still love them and so did Lee and Moo. I did mess up the scent a bit and is stronger then I wanted, but you learn from trying, I know next time to put a bit less in.
If you’re looking for something to teach you how to make your own soap I highly recommend, “The Joy of Melt & Pour Soap Crafting”. Just keep in mind, you’ll want to read the whole book before you start. Every tip is helpful.
