Owning 10-apiaries and a decent herb garden, I've blended my own natural skincare before this was exactly what I needed to inspire me to make new concoctions. Sharing proven recipes and explanations of how and what to use with beautiful photos, the goal of this book is to get you feeling confident enough to try new mixtures. With a comprehensive guide to essential oils and deconstructing labels in order to understand what ingredients were used proved to offer an in-depth understanding of today's popular products and why making your own could prove to more beneficial than what you'll find on store shelves.
I enjoyed the book in its entirety and would highly recommend it those wanting to learn where to start or how to keep going with your own skincare blends.
