A great book - informative, great photos.

I enjoyed reading this book and learning about soapmaking. This is just the type of soap I want to make - I get exhausted by the "lye people," the "cold process" people who often write negative reviews for books like these. Hasn't it ever occured to them that some of us live in apartments without a yard to work with lye, a hazardous ingredient? I purchase my soap base and melt it, and I can be just as creative as other soapmakers with the finished product. This book taught me about basics and about color, scent, special ingredients, and the final presentation. It was fun and informative, written by a creative author who obviously enjoys her own melt & pour soapmaking. Hurray!

Beautiful book, plus tons of great info.

I was specifically looking for a book with ideas for Melt & Pour, since I'm not interested in messing around with Lye. This book was everything I was looking for and more! The projects will give you a lot of ideas for melt and pour, plus there are some fairly simple recipes for hand-milled soaps. And as a bonus, there are projects for bath salts, lotions, etc.This books is everything you need to make your own spa product line!


I really love this book & simply can't say enough about it! It's a very simple, easy, & fun read. It's an extremly user-friently book. It's written well and it's thorough enough that you won't have any worries or unanswered question. Also, there are beautiful & helpful pictures on nearly every page! With each recipe you'll know what the end goal is and what it should look like! It also contains detailed information on natural additives, fragrance oils & aromatherapy, soap bases, soapmaking tools, plus directions for other bath products (bath salts, fizzies, bubble baths, powders, tea baths, bath & massage oils and potpourri). Many packaging and gift ideas are given too.I've gone through dozens of soap making books trying to find the right one, and I don't have to look any further! Neither do you. This book is well worth the price. I hope you choose this book because I'm quite sure you won't be diappointed. =)

Melt & Pour Soapmaking

Great book for beginners and advanced soap makers alike. Simple instructions, great pictures and lots of neat packaging ideas. I have been making cold process soaps for several years and this is my first attempt with M & P. Lots of fun, ingredients are readily available and soap is ready to use the same day!

Wow, a great MP book!

I just got mine today and I love it! I can't wait to start making some of her beautiful soaps. There are not very many great MP books out there but Marie Browning has 2! This along with my copy of Kaila Westerman's Melt and Mold book, are my two favorites so far! I absolutely recomend this book for soapers of all levels, even if yu just look at the pictures! This book also includes many recipes for other toiletry items- salts, oils, bombs, milk baths and more. She also has many gift baskey and packaging ideas. It is just a beautiful book, worth every penny!!!
