A staple book in our house for making our soaps, shampoos, face cleansers etc. Even if we don't use the base formulations we still use the scent combinations, which so far have been delightful. I just wish we had more time to relax with some of the body scrubs, bath oils and face masks. Most of our essential oils come from online sources as it is that much easier to get what you need when you live in a small town. The author wrote with organic ingredients in mind, but the recipes work well with regular ingredients.
Our dogs love it when we play with essential oils, wherever they are they come and stand beside us with their noses twitching and tails wagging. Even my husband and son have stopped complaining about the house being smelly since we tried some earthy tones. It's worth the extra effort of making your own beauty products, at least you know what's in it.
