So what type of soap cookbooks do you all recommend? I've been living with the Elayne C. White "Soapmaking Recipes" for years now. Other books I have found are either downright dangerous (adding water to lye) or too heavy on the luxury ingredients.
I do experiment, but I have no clue generally how to determine appropriate lye or water temps if I stray too far from a known recipe.
