Earlier this month, Evik from curious-soapmaker.com posted a comprehensive, honest review of our Ebook package, including “Soap Making Made Easy”, “Soap Recipes” and “Soap Making: A Quick Guide” on her blog and shared with her readers.
Below are some comments that Evik shared about the Ebooks, which you can read in full on her blog (see here for the full review). Thanks to Evik for sharing this review and for your honest feedback.
Here are some of the comments that Evik shared in her review:
The two chapters on natural colorants and scenting (with tricks on how to test those before adding them into the soap) show Michelle knows her craft well and really gives everything she knows.
Michelle is a soap making professional and has over 10 years of experience creating handmade soap. Our aim was to put all of this information together into one ultimate resource, and we haven’t left anything out. In fact, if we ever publish an updated version of the books (as we have recently) we will contact everyone who has purchased the ebook package and send them the latest version, so you will always have the latest soap making information at hand.
She added also tables of oil and (!) fatty acid characteristics (the latter is unfortunately in many books ommited), as well as an impressive troubleshooting section.
Our aim is to provide as much information as possible covering the basics of all aspects of soapmaking. When starting out in soap making, it is inevitable you will make mistakes and we know how frustrating this can be – so we have covered off as many potential issues as we can think of in our troubleshooting section.
Of course, if you are having trouble with anything that we don’t cover in the book, you can always contact us through the blog and we will help you out as best we can – then share with our readers so keep building up our soap making knowledge base.
It is a pretty neat e-book written for beginners, guiding you simply through the basics of the process of soapmaking (cold, hot, liquid) and much to my surprise also through packaging, selling, FDA regulations and even liability!
Here at Soap Making Advice we focus on sharing as much information on the basics of soap making as we can. We hope and aim to give people interested in soap making all the knowledge and tools that they need to get the most value out of their time and money, because soap making is a very precise, potentially expensive, but ultimately rewarding hobby.
We also love helping people nurture their entrepreneurial spirit and if we can inspire or otherwise assist in earning a little pocket money selling soaps through local markets or stallholders, we are more than happy to do so.
And the cherry on the top is that with this books comes with two additional free books.
Soap recipes – 50 recipes, each with instructions, including the so important WHY’s (yes, including milk soap, shaving soap and soap bar recipes!).
Soap making: A Quick Guide – a summary of the most important aspects of making soap at home, from Soap making easy
That’s right, not only will you get the “Soap Making Made Easy” ebook, but we also include over 50 unique soap recipes and a quick summary soap making guide – both as a PDF and formatted for your kindle, apple iBooks or favourite ebook reader as well!
Yes, I can honestly recommend this book and I do so. I myself have learned some new tricks and recipes!
All this for less than the cost of one batch of soap – save your time and money in the long run and get all the information you need to kickstart your soap making career!
