Creating your own homemade soap has never been easier or safer than with Jan Berry's simple lye-free melt and pour recipes, made entirely of all-natural ingredients you can feel good about using.

Each recipe stems from a pre-made soap base, which readers will easily customise with fun colours, scents and textures by infusing it with herbs, flowers and essential oils. Choose between uniquely interesting scents such as Soothing Sunflower Soap, Dandelion Honey Soap, Jewelweed and Oatmeal Soap, and many more. Making creative designs is a popular part of this method, and Jan provides step-by-step tutorials for fresh, creative designs that readers will love. The book also provides instructions for creating other bath and body products, such as sugar scrub cubes, shave soaps, whipped soaps, charcoal salt bars, etc.

Readers can further personalise these projects to their own needs with Jan's thoughtful recipe adaptations, which include tips for making soaps allergy-free, extra nourishing and more. She has also included alternate versions of some of the most popular made-with-lye recipes, so you can make and enjoy your favourites in a safer and more natural way!

The book will include 75 recipes and 75 photographs.
