Sara Robb is an expert soap maker who has developed a thriving business in the UK based on toiletries – soap, bath bombs, bubble bath, creams and lip balms, made from her own recipes. In this book she shares methods and recipes for making products containing honey and beeswax. Everything is explained in a clear way. The scientific explanations and methods given are very well written, particularly concerning soap making, with useful appendices for calculating recipes correctly according to the oil being used. Not all ingredients will be available everywhere, but everyone will be able to source some of those listed. The production of cosmetics and toiletries is one of the best ways for beekeepers and their families to add significant value to honey and beeswax. An excellent resource of recipes for modern, appealing products. Very highly recommended.
