Now anyone can take personal control of the beauty and cosmetic products they use. This complete guide to aromatherapy for hair and skin care explains how to create cosmetics that are custom-made, natural, vibrant and healthy - and that avoid the preservatives and additives of commercial products. More than 100 recipes provide an endless variety of formulas and fragrances to choose from.

Remarkably easy and inexpensive to prepare, these recipes for shampoos and rinses, bath and massage oils, astringents and aftershaves, cleansers, masks, and lotions require only a few basic ingredients that are all easily obtained. From a facial steam bath of juniper, lemon and cypress to a tanning lotion of witch hazel, bergamot, and lavender or a stimulating massage oil of rosewood, geranium, and orange, aromatherapy cosmetics can be made to individual specifications and used as charming personalized gifts. Keller explains how to identify the purest oils and tells which are naturally suited to specific hair and skin types. He also describes their individual healing properties so that people can use and combine their favorite scents with confidence.

Erich Keller has been involved in the field of aromatherapy since 1988, doing research, consultations, and workshops. He is the author of The Complete Handbook of Aromatherapy and lives in Germany.

    Comments: This book has great information about the essentials oils and how to use them in your recipes for personal health & beauty. If you are interested in recipes for commercial use, this is not the book for you.

    Customer Testimonial

    "I wanted to pass along to you that I am completely thrilled with the service and product that I have received from your company. I ordered $350.00 worth of supplies on 6/4 and received it on 6/7. I think it is great that you are so fast. Also, the supplies that I received were all better than I anticipated. More often than not, when you order something by mail or internet, it does not quite live up to expectations. I am pleasantly surprised that your company has exceeded my expectations."
