Soap Making for Dummies?
I have read WAY too many books about soapmaking and now my brain is too full (too many contradictory opinions). I haven't made a single batch yet...So far, I really liked The Soapmakers Companion best and there is a base, beginners recipe that I want to try. BUT, I went to Amazon and read some reviews about the book and an experienced soap maker said it was a horrible recipe and took 2 hours to trace (by hand even).
Does anyone have a good basic recipe that could be recommended?
Also, what is a "stick blender"? I came across that on the Amazon reviews too.
Thanks for any advice.
Tracy, who reads too much.
