The Best Natural Homemade Skin & Hair Care ProductsDisclosure: ItsJustMyLifeCA received products for this review. All opinions, however, are honest and my own.
I have always liked the idea of making my own products but never had any clue of where to start or how to start. This book changed all of that. It laid everything out for me starting from the very basics like how to store the ointments and products that I make.
I love how the book gives the background on the oil you are using and the benefits of using the oil.
