I want to learn to make soap. I thought that I would begin with simple melt and pour. I ordered a melt and pour starter kit from a company I saw on the net and knew nothing about. The kit came as described, but I did not feel the soap base was very high quality. It seemed rather harsh. In fact, it was awful! I will probably throw it away.

Please share with me your favorite supplier for high-quality, mp bases and a good recipe for mp soap that would appeal to a man using essential oils. Also, any recommendations for a good mp recipe book or website?


Thanks!

Right here, silly!
I like the MP bases at Wholesale Supplies Plus (WSP for short):

http://www.wholesalesuppliesplus.com/St ... +Pour+Soap.

I'm mostly a CP gal nowadays, but I still keep some MP on hand from WSP to play with from time to time. I've used their goat milk base, ultra white base, silk & shea base, honey base, extra clear base and their oatmeal base. I've been very happy with each one of them, but I must say that my absolute favorite out of all of them is their oatmeal base. On their site it's kinda cool because each product is rated according to the reviews people post about them. You can read all the reviews when you click on a particular product, and you can also post your own review of whatever product you've tried out. I've written a few reviews myself.

Essentials By Catalina also sells great MP:

I've not actually used Essentials By Catalina myself, but I've heard very good things about their bases from other die-hard MP soapers.

I've heard good things about Brambleberry's, too:

If you want good MP, I'd steer clear of the stuff they sell at Michael's Crafts. As MP goes, it's not all that great.


HTH!
