Making natural cosmetics at home



Why slather on harmful products when we take care of ourselves? Instead of spending a fortune on “natural” creams, which are full of irritants, we can prepare our own lotions by whipping them up only with ingredients that are so natural that you could even eat them!

In this book, Dafne Chanaz, in a simple and imaginative way, guides you in the making of face and body creams, lip balms, aftershave lotions, anti-cellulite creams, mosquito repellent creams, anti-wrinkle creams, balms, solid creams and massage oils. Step by step thanks to the beautiful photos, we can learn to acquire the right equipment, to know and calibrate the ingredients, to add fragrance to the potions and give them the qualities that will take care of the bodies and minds of the people to whom they are destined.

The writer describes over twenty recipes which she elaborated, which envelop you in relaxing, aphrodisiac or joyful fragrances, help to ward off headaches or which improve concentration.

The book ends with 33 charts of the principal essences, rich in information on the characteristics of each plant and recommended combinations.
