Think of the wonderful perfume of summer flowers, garden herbs and citrus groves. Nature's harvest yields an abundance of evocative scents to woo our senses. Making Scented Soap uses these natural fragrances - from pure essential oils, herbs, spices and flower petals - combined with the traditional craft of soap making to show you how to create an array of beautiful and aromatic products: gentle castile soaps for baby soft skins, shaving bars with a foaming lather and liquid soaps and shower washes that smell simply divine. For a rustic look, create your own exfoliating scrub soaps topped with seeds and herbs and clear soaps infused with scented flower petals. This book shows you how to use the arts of perfumery and soap making to make temptingly scented treats either for yourself or as perfect handmade presents.
