All things soap!

After much dithering I have decided 2012 will be the year I will make my first soap.

I found a great recipe for a basic Lux flakes soap at Down to Earth.  This contains no caustic soda so safe to make with children.  Might have to give this one a go to start with I think.

Anyone got some great beginners recipes?

Update. 11/2/12
I've made a batch.  Works out at $3.70 for a batch.  Not sure I added enough milk, and it was getting very hard to mix at the end.  Definately way too hard for Miss A. I'll upload photos once I have cut it.  I put Lavender Oil in but all I can smell is the lux flakes.
