The Best Must-Read Soapmaking Resources

Teach Soap soapmaking forumGood soapmaking books are essential, but so are good soapmaking friends. If you don’t live in a neighborhood where everyone around you happens to be a soapmaker, then check out soapmaker’s forums, such as the Teach Soap forum or the Soap Making Forum, for on-the-ground info, troubleshooting, and inspiration from experienced soapmakers around the world.

The archives alone are well worth a couple of hours of your time to sort through, but the ideas–bundt cake soap? Mud soap?–are also invaluable.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.
