I made a lot of different styles of soap this year as gifts. I never have made soap or anything like that before. I found it fun and relaxing.The end product is great and is making some cool looking gift boxes.
In the book I have there are 5 pages of soap ideas and ways to make decortive soaps.
I am going to post the recipe I used for all of my soaps.
Once you make your first soap I think you will be hooked and the ideas will be flowing.
