Yes, there are books out there. There are so many websites online that have instructions and information on how they do it. I have got it on my website, in fact. I took a class. I went to Denver and took a class and then I have a health food store. So I ended up with a bunch of soap bars and I gave them out to customers. They came back and said "this is the most incredible thing you have done. Are you going to sell them?" I got involved in teaching it because it is hard to find the ingredients. We have to go online or, being in the health industry, I can buy them. I had to buy enough palm oil for 35 lbs of soap. So it's not consumer friendly to buy and that's why I have started the "make your own soap kit." There are more and more places that are making it available online.

I get ideas from just playing around. As you get more comfortable making it, you can get kind of brave. One day you might want to do some different and make a prettier bar. I suggest people get comfortable with making the soap before you start adding a bunch of stuff to it like coloring because you are working with a chemical process. You want to get more comfortable before you start putting things in it. You don't know what you are doing and you might end up with a product that didn't turn out right and be discouraged.
