BOOK REVIEW: The Aromatherapy Beauty Guide Using the Science of Carrier & Essential Oils to Create Natural Personal Care Products

I don't give very many book reviews. But every now and then, a book of exceptional value catches my attention and I so very much want to share these rare shining opportunities with you!

Anyone who reads my blog knows that my passion (and my work) is about toxin free products. Indeed, that is the sole reason for the existence of eScential Wellness, my company. As you already know, all of my products are crafted free of the Toxic Ten (or the Dirty Dozen or the Mean Fifteen...all similar lists.) My products are based on science and they work.

That being said, there are those of us who just love to create for ourselves, too. Sure, you can buy MY products, but, sometimes you want to personalize your own. Do you like my NaturOil but want a different scent? Or a favorite carrier oil that I don't use? The only way to get exactly what you want is to do it yourself.  

What to do? Here is your answer! Our own Canadian Danielle Sade has written a definitive text on how to make your own personal care products! And what an excellent volume it is! She covers everything you need to know, in basic, easy to read and understand language. Starting with what skin is, and how it works, to what carrier oils and essential oils are and can do, she provides oodles of recipes for you to follow, but, also provides such a terrific, easy to understand explanation of how to put things together that you can even "tweak" these to get exactly what you want.

Danielle provides information on making your own cleansers, toners, creams, moisturizers, serums, lip care and so much more. She has 30 years of experience teaching aromatherapy and product development. Nothing makes me happier than to say she is also Canadian!!! There is not a better book on the market.

If you are one of those with an interest in making your own products, you can buy Danielle's book at here:
