The Art of Soap is now in stock!  Every book is shipped with 2 beautiful photo postcards so you can tell a friend!  You can purchase a copy here on this site or you can go to the Soapylove Book Shop where the Soapylove melt and pour projects book is also available. 

In the next week I will also be adding a gift wrapped option.  You can have a book shipped directly to a friend, anywhere in the world! 

Thanks so much for all of the wonderful support I have gotten for the book already.  I added a fun map at the bottom of this blog to show where The Art of Soap is being sent.  If you have received a copy, please come here and leave a post telling others what you think.  We would love to hear!  :)


  1. I received my copy of The Art of Soap about a week ago (I pre-ordered it), and I just finished it! I'm proud of that because I'm so busy these days, I can't remember the last time I actually finished a book in less than a week. I read it just before bedtime; about a handful of soapers each night.

    This book is easy to read (both well written & edited), nicely laid out, has gorgeous pictures, and very interesting segments written by each soap maker. It's really an easy/perfect read just before bedtime, to help wind down from an exhausting work day, since there are no recipes or technical information to wind your brain back up. As a fellow soap addict, it's wonderful to read & connect with the soapers profiled in the book, from all over the world. I loved reading about the creative process of these individuals. The whole book is very inspirational, and it's truly different than any of the other soap books on the market.

    My congrats to you, Debbie, for having such a wonderful idea and following through with it. I highly recommend this book to anyone who feels as if they've been bitten by the soap bug.

  2. I got my book on Saturday. It's so beautiful. I can't stop picking it up to leaf through. I'm so inspired by the beautiful soaping that's going on around the world.

    I have just received "The Art of Soap".
    Photographs. A treat !.
    Alleviating feeling to look at these soaps and at the same time the spirit bubbles (which techniques to obtain these effects?).
    I did not have yet the time to read all and to appreciate the life of each soap-maker (but I will do a little each evening).
    As you already said, “There are as many stories as there are soap-makers”
    And there are so many stories for each soap.

    Thank you very much for the short note and the 2 postcards

  5. I got my book today and that was fast as I am in Australia. I love it and hope one day to be as creative as the people featured in the book! Thank you for taking the time to put together this gorgeous book.

  6. I received my copy of the book and to be honest, I was totally blown away by it. It's just STUNNING and so inspiring to read about everyone's soapmaking processes. Thank you so much for doing this, it's just amazing!
