Review by

This book is a good resource if you're interested in candlemaking, but not very useful at all if you're looking for information on soapmaking. It doesn't discuss cold process or hot process soapmaking, focusing solely on melt and pour.That being said, the candlemaking information is good, but that basically means only half the book is useful.
