I can make most of my favorite products at a fraction of the cost (even if I purchase the raw materials; glycerine, witch hazel, essential oils, etc.) from them. An example, my entire family all use the Lemon and Coriander deodorant at over £7 per 100 ml bottle. I have spent £28 for raw materials, made up a batch that just happens to produce 100 ml, and I figure I still have enough to make up at least 5 more batches!! That works out to approximately £4.60 per bottle. I will not be putting a down payment on a Ferrari anytime soon, but it is very satisfying.
There are also many suggestions for products that are not produced for Neal's Yard, and then there is always the possibility for changing the recipies to suit your own skin, hair, body, taste, etc.
In other words, I am extremely pleased with this book and I can easily see myself referring to this book again and again in the years to come.
Ended up returning it and was promptly refunded by World of Books.
As for the book content itself, I don't think that soap shavings constitutes a natural recipe for shampoo - that was the serious deal breaker along with other not so useful recipes. Recommend that people look for a newer version of this book.
Thank you World Books for an Old Fashioned respectful service
This book is great for anyone who loves making their own cosmetics at home as it has enough recipes to keep you busy. A prefect present for a teenager too as it will keep them out of trouble (at least for a year hours).
Not recommended for those looking for recipes to extend their business-most of the recipes by my opinion would either need tinkering or more preservatives added before they could last long enough to be considered for assessing and selling.
