Discover how easy it is to make bath treats like fragrant shower gels, dreamy bubble baths, luscious creams and lotions, deep cleansing masks and facials for literally pennies using only a few essential oils and ingredients from your own kitchen with Organic Beauty with Essential Oil.'
I was so excited to read this book as I have always been a huge advocate for using natural products wherever I can and making my own natural beauty products has always been a bit of a dream of mine.
Organic Beauty With Essential Oil contains everything you need to know about creating an unbelievable amount of products such as Bath Oils, Bath Salts, Bath Soaps, Body Scrubs, Facial Scrubs, Facial Creams, the list just goes on and on.
It also contains some very detailed chapters at the beginning on the basics about essential oils, how to store them and dilution tips as well as guides on what oils work best for the skin and body.
The great thing about this book is that a beginner could pick it up and have practically everything they need to know at their fingertips about using essential oils in their everyday beauty routine. I also think it would be a great guide for someone with a little more knowledge who might just be after some extra inspiration with what products they can create with their essential oils.
Most of the recipes in this book are very simple to make with ingredients that are usually on hand in the pantry at home and the methods are well written and very easy to follow.
I personally am looking forward to trying a couple of the lip balms, nail strengthening oils, lip scrubs and hair shampoos out.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in the uses and benefits of essential oils, especially in the form of making their own natural beauty products at home.
