Thought I would post a link to a very helpful soap making page. It is http://www.millersoap.com/ she has alot of help, good ideas and recipes here.
The next one would like to post is a good place to get oils is http://www.soaperschoice.com/
The next one is a place to get lye at a fairly reasonable price https://www.essentialdepot.com/
This is a soap making article on a blog http://razorfamilyfarms.com/category/crafts/soap_making/
Also a place that has been useful to me where people share their ideas is soap making for beginners in facebook.
Well hope this gives you little bit read about. Me, the son and hubby cut wood most of the day so I'm tired. We have chores and 4-H meeting yet tonight so not much time for blogging. Have a great day! Rebekah
