Kristen, a reader here, emailed me recently that she had bought this book after I talked about it when I was getting ready to make soap for the first time. It’s truly the most comforting, practical soapmaking book I’ve read. The author breaks down and dispels scary myths about soapmaking, and holds your hand in a reassuring way as she explains how to make soap safely but without fear. However, Kristen ultimately decided soapmaking wasn’t in the cards for her.
But she had the book….
And she wants to give it to one of you who will make soap. So generous! (Thank you, Kristen!)
The book is Smart Soapmaking by Anne L. Watson. It was published in 2007, so it’s a fairly recent publication and has all the up-to-date information you need. If you want to be in the running to win the book, just leave me a note in the comments letting me know that you are ready to make soap!
