Here's where I get to share all the experiments I've done between writing my five books on soap and lotion making. There's a lot here that never made it into any of those books!
I've organized it in the form of a monthly magazine. So, just scroll down till you see a month that interests you.
The recipes are mostly just ingredients lists, because they assume you already know how to make soap. If you need directions, please see one or both of my first two books—Smart Soapmaking and Milk Soapmaking—or another reputable resource. Unless I say otherwise, each recipe makes a 30-ounce batch.
The pictures I show are either my own photos or else Victorian trade cards or other paper ephemera from my personal collection.
In many of the articles, you'll find a section called "What Would I Do?" That's my corner for preferences, opinions, and editorializing. Just look for this icon.
