After doing a lot of research, I have decided that I would like to try soapmaking. Since I can't do anything until I get home in August, I figured I would compile my lists of resources, recipes and suppliers so I am all set for when I can actually make some soap.
I think I should try both hot and cold process soapmaking. They both use the same tools with the addition of a crockpot for the hot process. I already have one so I might as well try.

Assuming all goes well with the beginner recipe, I have chosen a few more recipes to try.

- Shaving Soap Recipe - From soap-making-resource.com; I can also make this with feminine scents for myself if it works well.
