I am happy with this book, a bit simplistic in places but I have also learned loads from it too, the info about preservative is so worthwhile on its own. Thanks a lot xxx

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely one for my library 23 Jan. 2013
By Ross E. Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a good book for those wanting to expand their knowledge of making your own cosmetics. Novices to the topic will want to supplement with other books on the topic. The author begins with Essential Oils and explains their use and effects, then moves to lotions and balms. This is where the novice may need to supplement a little, drawing on instructions from other books on lotion making. Those who are experienced at making lotions will have no trouble understanding and following the instructions.

The section on cleansers and toners is a little thin. There was only one recipe for a cleanser and one for a scrub. And, granted, there isn't much to making toners, but a little variety in this section would have been helpful.

There were also some formatting problems--half empty pages and one picture that blocked part of the text. While it makes the book look less professional, these problems don't detract from the usefulness of the book.

I would definitely recommend this book with the caveat that newcomers to the craft may find it lacking a bit. [...]

3.0 out of 5 stars some helpful basic info, but... 23 Jan. 2013
By Tah_Dah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've played around with soaps and scrubs, and this book did provide some additional info as I consider making additional products for myself and my family. There's a decent index, and I found the information on various essential oils to be helpful but rather short. There was only 1 recipe for lip balm, and it includes lime essential oil, which I found surprising as I've seen numerous warnings against using it in lip balms as it is photosensitive. I was also surprised there was not a basic shampoo recipe, but rather just advice to use your favorite shampoo and add essential oils, which doesn't seem like a particularly good idea unless you have thoroughly researched all the ingredients in your shampoo.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great recipes and tips 21 Feb. 2014

I got this book for free, but after reading through the information and recipes I've recommended it to others - even to pay for it. It's comprehensive and well written. Includes a thorough explanation of the ingredients used, why and how they benefit your skin, and how to use them effectively. This book also outlines ingredients to avoid when purchasing cosmetics - which I found helpful. Since reading this book I've purchased many of the necessary ingredients to make some of these lotions with good results so far.
4.0 out of 5 stars Informative, lives up to it's name 22 Oct. 2013
By Jillian Magruder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book will teach you how to make lotions, bath salts, and all sorts of other beauty products in an all natural way. Straightforward and easy to understand. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the grammar mistakes in some parts of the book. One editorial mistake that sticks out to me is that there was a paragraph that was written twice. Amazon and the authors need to review these books more thoroughly before releasing them on Kindle! This is not the first time I have encountered this problem with my Kindle books.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 29 Jan. 2014
By Ethel Korman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I found this book to be a great treasure trove of concise, easy to read recipes for natural creams and lotions. She also included great information on the benefits of each essential oil as well as each oil or wax used in the recipes. I found this to be especially informative. I would recommend this book to any interested in making their own natural creams and lotions, free of chemical additives.
