Early printings of this book contain a recipe variation in a sidebar note on page 36. As a result of further testing, author Susan Miller Cavitch and Storey Publishing strongly recommend that you do not try this variation. Adding honey when you are combining the sodium hydroxide and water may result in a stronger reaction with more intense heat. The mixture may bubble up quickly and come out of the pot, posing a potential hazard.

Soap plays an important role in maintaining cleanliness and hygiene. No wonder that trillions of soap bars and solutions are sold around the world every year. But soaps sold in department stores contain ingredients that may be harmful to your skin. Some of these soaps contain detergents that can cause allergies to the skin, especially in children. They also dry out your skin making it flaky and itchy. This is why many people are making their own soaps right at their home.
Making your own soap allows you to control the ingredients that you use. You can use ingredients that are skin-friendly as well as eco-friendly, something which is not possible with store-bought soaps.
Home-made soap is tolerated by most people and doesn't cause any allergies. Most ingredients used in homemade soap are completely natural and cause no irritations. However, if there is any specific ingredient that you are allergic to, you can simply chuck it out the next time when you make your soap.
So, maybe you do want to make your own soap. But the question is: How? Making your soap is not a difficult task. All you need to do is buy some ingredients and tools, pick your soap recipe, and get started.
This guide is perfect for a beginner like you who is interested in soap-making but has no idea where to get started. The guide will help you learn the main techniques in soap-making. You will also get to know what ingredients you will need to make soap at home. You will also learn about the tools that you need to make your soap.

Anyone can make soap at home. And the process is not as dangerous as you would think. In fact, homemade soap can be better than the ones you can buy in store–it all depends on what you put in the soap.
Even being a busy bee isn't an excuse for not making your own soap-the process takes just a few hours. And in these few hours, you can make enough soap that can last for months.
In this book, I will walk you through the process of making soap. In our journey, we will start by comparing soap making methods. From there, we will go on to look at the tools you need to invest in. In all this, we won't forget to look at how you can stay safe in this whole process.
Since tastes differ, we will also dedicate a chapter on what you can use to color your soap. Also, you will find tips on how to start a soap making business. I'm sure you will find the book helpful.
So without further ado, let's get started.
