I was having a discussion Friday night with some friends who are interested in learning to make their own soap. My husband has become proficient, but I would have difficulty explaining it. Here is one of several good videos by Anne-Marie Faiola, the “Soap Queen” on YouTube. She also has a website, a blog, and online company for soap-making supplies. I will be watching several of her videos to learn more. I am new to her material, but think you may find it interesting.
