I bought this as I love honey products and thought to make myself some.
Petra has written an excellent instruction manual which is simple but thorough.
The soap turned out beautifully as did the lotion.
There isn't much else to add other than it was worth purchasing. Love it.

Met the author at my local farmers market and purchased this book and 6lbs of honey from her. I like the book and everything seems to be explained fairly well. I will try out a few projects and update this review later.
