Bought this book and learned quite a lot. Definitely a good book to have if you are going to make base creams from scratch. Glad I have it in my library.

I am so happy you have this book! I tried to make creams and lotions initially with the stearic acid, beeswax, Borax, water and oil method and was never successful. I always ended up with separation and it was nothing like lotion. I purchased this book and some Polawax (I already had the other basic ingredients), and have made some sensational creams and lotions from the excellent recipes in this book. The book is very easy to follow (although I had to convert the metric measurements) and there are some powerful recipes and remedies for all skin types. I am looking forward to making more of the recipes for different skin types as my recipe testers are VERY happy with the creams that I have made so far.

One of only three books that I carry in my aromatherapy clinic, this book contains tried and true basic recipes with explanations for how to address a variety of health and beauty problems. Also included are glossaries of healthy and unhealthy ingredients to introduce you to natural products and natural preservatives.
