My Review:

This is a great book for anyone interested in the more natural line of skin care or to even learn a bit about what is in regular skin care that we should avoid for our health. This book is broken down into why we should use essential oils in our everyday skin care, even out shampoos and deodorant.

Once you learn about the basic ingredients that you need to make a lot of the recipes in this book you head into over 400 recipes that can be made at home with a lot of ingredients you may already have on hand or can pick up in a Health food store or section in your local grocery store.

So many great recipes I don't even know where to start. Along with benefits in using certain essential oils. A great book for beginners wanting to add more natural products in your everyday life. My daughter and I look forward to whipping up some of these recipes and maybe even gifting some to family and friends.
