I would really love some advice, links, or suggestions on beginning to make soap. I don't want the kind you just melt-I would like to really make those great homemade soaps. Has anyone ever done this?

What supplies do I really need versus which are just luxuries as I get better? Any help is very much appreciated! Thanks!

Oh man, I have quite a bit of advice - but don't really know where to start.


My first soap making experience was following the instructions on Cranberrylane Soaps website.

http://www.cranberrylane.com/soapmaking.htm

Fairly detailed instructions.

My favorite soap mix was olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, and hemp oil with vitamin E and aloe.


I also love to make body butters, so yummy.





tot needs me. will write more later.
