The Soap Making Companion by Jennifer Tynan is an easy to follow book for any one who wants to learn the basics of DIY home made soap and bath cleansers.
Written specifically for beginners in mind, one does not need to have an experience in soap making or working with caustic chemicals. This book will take one through the whole process from start to finish.
This book is written in three parts. Part one covers all basics of soap making, needed supplies, the science behind the formula, and a full discussion on the safety of working with strong house hold chemicals like Sodium Hydroxide.
The second part covers cold process soap making along with 10 recipes with slightly different behaviors.
The third part covers hot process and begins to explore techniques just a little more.
