While there are some very good points to this book, there is far too much useless chatter on topics. The author relies too heavily on grapefruit seed extract to preserve her soaps; GSE runs about $75 a quart and isn't a true preservative! She also needlessly complicates the calculation on determining the quantitiy of lye for any given formula. Also, there is absolutely no relevant discussion as to determing how much water to add to a recipes you create.
You'd almost think Susan was trying to make soapmaking more dificult than it is just to keep people from trying!

I've tried two of these recipes and then spent a total of 5 hours waiting for the soap to trace. All of the ingredients were from a reputable supplier and I used a digital lab scale to measure the ingredients.

PLEASE don't waste your time with this book. Amazon should put this book in the FICTION section!
