Why Sea Salt Bars?

Sea salt is purifying, serves as a natural antiseptic, and acts as an astringent. It’s especially useful for clearing acne as it gets into the pores, kills bacteria and cleanses the cells in your skin.

Salt bars last FOREVER in the shower. In our experience, they last longer than regular bars of soap, giving you the most value for your money.

Salt bars are hard! Salt bars work well with individual cavity molds that you can’t usually use with your regular soap recipes. The soap gets hard fast and will pop right out of the molds. Bring out those cute decorative molds that didn’t work well with your regular cold process soap and try them with a salt bar recipe – you won’t be disappointed!

Salt bars are inexpensive to make. Salt bars contain mostly coconut oil and sea salt, both of which are fairly inexpensive. In fact, coconut oil is one of the cheaper oils used to make soap. Also, sea salt can be purchased in bulk from many suppliers.

Make wonderful spa-like soap or facial bars of soap. Your customers will love hearing about the benefits of sea salt on their skin and will pay more for these specialty bars of soap.

The Making Salt Bars eBook includes 12 customizable recipes and in-depth instruction on how to formulate your very own recipes to meet yours, and your customers, individual needs.

I take you beyond the recipe, into the science behind combining ingredients to create Salt Bar Soap that has a lotion-like lather, exfoliates and creates a nourishing moisturizing quality.

Perfect for newer soap makers and experienced soapers looking to change up their cold process soap with a unique, decadent end product!

  5. Betty (verified owner)

    contente d’avoir acheté ce livre et le petit cadeau en plus c’était plutôt sympa. j’avais déjà fait des barres de sel mais cela m’a ouvert des possibilités diverses. je ne l’ai pas encore essayé mais ça ne devrait pas tarder.

  6. Carolyne Thrasher

    Good for a beginner soaper. Less helpful if you’ve made salt bars already. Content and layout is excellent. If you are an experienced soaper and buy this on sale, it’s useful for ideas and marketing. Mine came with the salt bars for face too.

  7. Artesanal1980 (verified owner)

    Started seeing the salt soap bars everywhere and was curious about. Loved this book, because it just what I needed. It is well written, clear, concise and straight to the point. I recommend it!.

    I haven’t made any of the soaps out of this book yet, but I’m excited to try them. All of Amanda and Benjamin’s books are well worth the money. Thank you both for taking the time to share them with the world. You guys are awesome.

  14. Whittany (verified owner)

    I have enjoyed this ebook. I already created my own salt soap recipe before purchasing this book. With the recipes provided and tips and tricks, I feel like I can enhance my recipe even more. I can also try new ones. There’s loads of recipes provided, and there’s step-by-step instructions, great for someone just getting into making salt soaps. I also loved having a personal look at the author. It makes me feel like a friend is sharing guidance with me. (cheesy, I know, but it’s true.)

  15. Claudia Eliaza Zanes

    Ok so let me start by saying that this book is AWESOME! I’ve tried only 2 soaps to date, but I simply love how easy the recipes are. Most call for just one butter. Now that’s my kinda jam. I’m so excited to try some other soaps. They’re hard and last so long in the shower. It truly feels as though I’m at the spa! Do yourself a favor and check this book out.

  16. Corinna

    I am so happy this book on how to make salt bars came in the package of e-books I ordered!

    I have been wanting to make salt bars for a long time and this book is just right to start on it. Easily explained with beautiful pictures and easy recipes!

  17. Chisa

    I have both this e-book and printed version of this book. Love both books!

    I love Amanda and Benjamin’s books. I have learned so much about soap making from their resources and this salt bar book is no different. I use if often for inspiration and as a reference. It is written in an easy to read manner with great explanations of the process. Thank you Amanda and Benjamin for sharing your knowledge and passion with us.

  21. Angelique Heiligers

    I love this book, it’s great and use it very often 🙂
    I have and love all the books of Amanda and Benjamin, because they are all written in a very easy to understand language, and even if you are new to the soap making, after reading the book you can make your own lovely salt bars.
    What I really appriciate of the books, is that all contain so many different recipes and explainations, why they are different or what they are good for.
    I would highly reccoment the book and the e-classes, to all soap makers.

  22. Jayne Jordan

    The hardest part about this ebook is picking which recipe to start with! I love how the recipes are all scented with essential oils. So far I’ve made the Rose Clay and Argan Spa Bar, Lavender Dreams Spa Bar, and the Charcoal and Tea Tree Spa Bar. But don’t ask me to pick a favorite because I like them all!

  23. Kelly Quinney

    I am brand new to salt bars but am becoming a HUGE fan! I didn’t have Amanda’s book when I created my first recipe, and while they turned out great and people like them, I am so excited to try the recipes in this book and make an even better bar now that I gained all the knowledge she shared in this amazing book! I will be doing this tomorrow and I can’t wait to see the results! Thanks Amanda for sharing all your research with us and helping us to make a better product!

  24. Stephanie Lasayko (verified owner)

    I purchased this book in September, 2017. Very informative book. Lots of good ideas for making salt bars. Glad I added it to my soap making library. Would definitely recommend.

  25. Laura

    I think I own all the Aaron’s recipe books :). I love printing and binding them and pulling them out when I’m wanting to try another new recipe. I especially love the Charcoal & Tea Tree Sea Salt recipe w/Peppermint Essential Oil. It’s one of my customers top picks too! I love the wealth of Essential Oil blend ideas in their books too, especially when I had no clue where to begin!

  26. Kelly G (verified owner)

    I love the Making Salt Bars book. The recipes are easy to follow and the essential oil combinations are lovely. You won’t regret this purchase.

  27. Shirley

    I love salt bars and this is the only book dedicated to salt bars. I’m glad I purchased this and have almost all of Amanda’s books.

  31. Marilou

    Pleased to add this book to my collection. Very informative and the recipes are wonderful. I have made several and each one has turned out great! Family members are enjoying the long lasting bar and the designs from the molds give bars character.

  32. Charlene Haymond

  33. Michaux Downing

    Love your E-Books!!! The recipes are concise and information relevant. The essential oil blends, lovely! Thank you for assembling such a bounty of information. My first purchase was your men’s skin care book. It is equally helpful. Then got the book bundle. I am excited most excited about the salt bars, as salt is a passion of mine!

  34. Kerry Meier (verified owner)

    I have made soap for many years. This is the first book I have seen that talks about salt bars. I made my first salt bar from the book 6 weeks ago. I am patiently waiting to see how they turn out because I hear a long cure is better. They look beautiful. I can’t wait to try some more recipes.Thank you for the recipes in this book and your other books. I use them frequently.

  35. sylvia shattler (verified owner)

    I bought this e-book to learn the right technique for making salt bars. I previously made salt bars and ended up throwing them out because I was not happy with the outcome. So happy with this purchase, I acquired the proper techniques for salt bars. At first I was a little hesitant about such a high percentage of coconut oil in a soap bar. I decided to try the salt bar with shea butter. After patiently waiting 5 weeks for the cure, I can honestly say I am not disappointed. Absolutely love love these bars. For those of you who are skeptic about making salt bars, this e-book will convince you otherwise. Highly recommend for anyone wanting a spa experience.

  36. Carol S (verified owner)

    I’ve never heard of a salt bar before Amanda introduced me to them. This book is very informative and has easy to follow directions for making the perfect salt bar. My customers love them!

  37. Celeste Gennarakis (verified owner)

    My soap-making journey started with Lovin Soap. I have purchased quite a few eBooks including Making Salt Bars and have learnt so much and it gave me the confidence to try many different types of soaps. This book is really wonderful with beautiful recipes and the soap is amazing! A great soap to add to the inventory!

  38. Emma Jane Molloy (verified owner)

    Absolutely love all Amanda’s books. I’ve made every single bar in this book since getting it and made some modified ones too, using the easy to understand comprehensive information obtained from the book. Perfect for the seasoned soaper, and people just dipping their toes in soap making for the first time. Having three teenagers, our favourite family soap from this book is the charcoal and tea tree spa bar – I always end up making extra for my two nieces too!

  39. Jill Perander

    I’ve made one recipe even though I got the book in 2016. Looking forward to making more and looking forward to the mini book!

  40. Jacqui Mark

    This was the first of Amanda’s books that I bought and now I have them all! Easy to follow recipes that are palm oil free and full of natural ingredients. The Java Coffee Bar is my favourite! I recommend this for all levels of soap making experience.

  41. Murielle (verified owner)

    I love this book!! All recipes are easy to make, with good explanations. My skin loves salt bars 🙂

    I just love this book! Amanda makes learning how to make salt bars easy and fun… even if you haven’t made soap in the past. Giving a quick intro and history into the soap making process, Amanda then moves on to what a salt bar is and why we would want to make/use one. She’ll teach you the basics of making salt bars as well as more advanced techniques with instructions and pictures for each step. Between the recipes that are in this book along with the explanation of choosing different base oils, salts, fragrances and colorants your possibilities are endless. My customers love these salt bars!

  51. Gail Dulgar (verified owner)

    I bought the Salt-Bar book last spring. and I made both the triple-butter and the Argan and Rose Clay Soaps in the spring. I was kind of turned off by the texture of the soap initially, (the salt settled to the bottom of the bars – oops my bad) but after a second go at them and a full 8 weeks cure, they turned into lovely bars.. Now I have friends and family asking when I will make them again, as they want more!

    I’m looking a making another couple of the recipes this spring.. Need to keep surprising them with something new!

  52. Kathleen Butterworth

    Purchased this book and so happy I added it to my collection. I haven’t tried a recipe I didn’t love. Salt bars are long lasting and my skin loves salt bar soap.

  53. Ingrid (verified owner)

    Great comprehensive information on making salt bars. Great recipes. Would definitely recommend.
