Hurrah! I have now adapted the natural soap and skincare recipe book (I would hand out in my workshops) into a digital PDF. I spent time editing the recipes and adding additional photographs, helpful tips and information. And while I am definitely no graphic designer I am pretty pleased with my DIY result!
The Art of Natural Soap and Skincare can be purchased here in my shop for AUD$8.99. It includes recipes for basic bar soap, herbal body butter lotion, hand and heel salve, lip balm, bubble bath bar, body scrub and a face mask. As well as a table describing the different fats and oils and basic instructions for adding natural colour, preparing your own lard, dried herbs and infused oils at home.
I have been making our own soap and lotion for six years now and really can't imagine ever buying it. Homemade is so good! Not to mention much less expensive than buying equivalent high-end organic brands. I also think they make the best practical gifts for friends and family...
