I read the book in a few hours, and then I read the reviews. As some pointed out, you can find most of this info on the internet. That is true, but this is all the information, together in one book. I do not have time to scour the internet for natural colorant information. I like that I can find it all in one place and that I have the measurements for infusion or adding powder, flowers, etc. at trace or in oil. I would rather spend my time making soap than researching it. I thought it was informative.
This is so useful to those who do not want to use synthetic lab colors for soap! I make cold process soap for a reason, it is so much better for your skin! Why anyone would want to add chemicals to their beautiful soap is beyond me. These are simple ideas of how to get natural colors for your soaps.
This book is great! I refer to it often in considering natural colorants for my soap making. I don't have time to surf around on the internet looking for soap colorant information that may or may not be accurate. 107 natural colorants all in one reference is very helpful and inspiring.
I bought this book with high expectations, but I found that the colors just do not come out as the author stipulated. This is quite obviously a self published book by an amateur and is not worth your time. There are several excellent books for those interested in soap making but this is not one of them.
I simply cannot wait to try these out. Such great ideas! You get the full range of colors with stuff you can p/u at the market instead of always having to order online (and CHEAP!) plus the benefit of having them be natural and depending on what you choose to buy also organic. Finally, many have almost medicinal aspects to them, ie:clear up acne, mousturize, get rid of wrinkles, etc.She also gives the info on things like what each is, for instance, tomato is fruit first cultivated from such and such an area (poor memory) - so for those of you who know not what comphrey is for instance and what it's used for will get a brief but good intro to that info. This aspect is no where near exhaustive but who would want it to be? I know while I might find it interesting to know where first cucumbers were cultivated and why it's used on eyes in salons, I don't want to read paragraphs or God forbid chapters on that subject but rather get to the point on how to use in soap and what color it will produce. While she is not exhaustive there either, she definitely gives enough info to get you going and it will be fun experimenting to see what outcomes you'll get.I'm very pleased. This will be a much used resource! A GREAT reference book (I love reference books - so handy!!). Muchos recommendos (probably not correct word, we'll call it Spanglish!)
Honestly, this book is not really worth the money. All of this information can be found online for free and so you really don't need to waste the money on it.
I have been making soap for 18 years. I loved this book and read it in just one day. It is easy to read and there are pictures of every herb. She tells you how much of the herb to use and how to use it and when to put it into the soap process! When I found out about this book, I had to have it. I was not disappointed!
I ordered this book in the hopes of learning and getting some direction, and I was greatly displeased. The colors were not to the quality I expected when buying the book. I felt that it was quite obvious it was a self-published book. I am disappointed in the fact that I spent money on this book, and I will be sure to let others know.I am disappointed in the fact that I spent money on this I did not find that it benefited my life or what I was trying to accomplish whatsoever. I had expected more with my purchase. I did not feel that the author knew what they were talking about, and the book was poorly created. I hope that with this review, I can keep others from making the same mistake.
