In response to the wide concern currently expressed over animal-product additives and synthetic ingredients in toiletries and cosmetics, this book focuses on making one's own nutrient-rich soaps, scented with natural oils and using only herbal and vegetable dyes. Step-by-step instructions are provided, down to some creative gift-wrapping of the end product. The author has included many recipes, from old favourites like oatmeal and honey or avocado, to her own for goat's milk, borage and a tropical shampoo bar. There are also tips for trouble-shooting, quickly assessing and correcting problems. All stages of the manufacturing process are covered, from the buying of supplies to cutting and trimming the final bars. The author is president of an American retail mail order company producing herbal products.
