Homestead Blessings:  The Art of Soap Making
*****


"Bring creative flair to your home with "The Art of Sap Making", the new DVD from the West ladies.  This inspiring DVD is full of instructive step-by-steps, artful how-tos, and entertaining advice in the pleasurable and highly useful activity of making soap.  Includes instructions in basic soap, decorative soaps, soap alls, hand-milled soaps and much more!"

This instructional DVD was charming and easy to follow.  The West women teach soapmaking step-by-step for the novice.  I have to admit, that although I do intend to start making my own soaps in the near future, the process is a bit daunting.  Using lye can be a scary thing.  Being able to see the process visually helped me see how it could work without having to be intimidated by it.  This is one in a series of videos these ladies have produced.  I plan to investigate the others!
