    Great blog post, love your first soap batch story, and glad the book helped you to solve your soap issue on this batch. I sadly have not gotten my hands on one of these fabulous books, hopefully soon. Your soap has a fun rustic look to it, thanks for sharing.

  2. Oh, I’d love to win this book. I did check out a few last winter from the library but scared myself off! This sounds like just the book from novice to experienced!

    what a wonderful give away. I have been sooooo curious to make soap. Thanks for sharing your successes-whether they started out that way or not. It is very encouraging for the rest of us. I hope to try soap making soon!

  4. Margo says:

    I’ve often thought of making my own soap but haven’t taken the plunge yet. This book sounds like a great resource.

  5. Marci says:

    I admire everyone who bothers making soap. Someday ill try! Until then? I’m buying fun soap at craft events, art fairs and sheep/wool festivals

  7. Julie says:

    That bottom soap looks good enough to eat. I have a feeling that soap making would be fun and, like yogurt, I’d end up preferring my homemade to storebought. Fun!

    Thanks so much for the shout-out! Your hot processed avocado bars turned out wonderful, great save!

  9. This book sounds brill! I’ve made one batch of soap from a kit but have been too scared to try a batch on my own. If I won this book however….!

    Great save on the soap batch, I think it still looks great! Super cool giveaway too. I just found your site and I love it!

    The first time I tried to make soap was a disaster as well! I’d love to have this book and learn from the best like you did. Anne Marie is an inspiration to me because of her successful business she built from scratch.

    Been eyeballing this since Amazon offered a pre-order. Thank you for the offer!

    I would love to try my hand at making soap – and the book looks great (along with your soap too!).

  16. Mariah says:

    I’m a rookie soapmaker myself, and through endless hours of research and trials and error I’ve mannaged to make a few simple batches of soap though I would love to learn more (especially using oil and mica)

  17. Raluca M. says:

    I was also nervous on my first attempt at making soap that I spoiled anything. My girl was a little baby by then and I didn’t take into account that she might awaken while I was making the soap and she did. I chose the wrong time of making soap and I was in a hurry and nervous and then anything was spoiled. I would love to know more about making soap.

    I have never made soap, but would love to try!

  19. Jen B says:

    I’ve been curious about soap making (especially since I saponified fatty acids as a chemist!). I just didn’t know where to start.

  20. Ruby R says:

    It’s been a while since I’ve made basic soap, this book sounds like the thing to get me back into it and beyond. Loved the story of your soapy experience.
