We love it when people get creative in the home and make fresh, eco-friendly products for use in their own lives.
The trouble is that for some things it can often be quite a complicated process to get started. Like making soap.
Fortunately, Anne-Marie Faiola is on hand to guide us through the fascinating world of soap making in Milk Soaps: 35 Skin-Nourishing Recipes for Making Milk-Enriched Soaps, from Goat to Almond.
It’s rapidly turning into one of our go-to texts at our home. We’ve included it as an essential resource in our guide to natural beauty.
Making Soap For Beginners To Experts
This is a book designed to grow with you as your soap making skills. Anne-Marie tackles the basics of soap making (always using milk products) right through to advanced lessons.
Camel milk soap?
Anne-Marie will show you how and it’s very much worth it, if you can find a camel to milk.
Of course, this wouldn’t be truly eco-friendly if there weren’t some vegan recipes in there too and she tackles hemp, rice, coconut and almond milk soaps too.
We loved the rice milk soap, it’s so gentle on your skin!
Better still, Anne-Marie walks you through how to sculpt your soaps into intricate and beautiful designs. That was our favorite part of the book.
Final Thoughts on Milk Soaps
We loved this book. It’s the perfect way to get into making soap at home and having a ton of fun.
It’s also something you can get your kids involved in, as long as you keep a close eye on things.
