I have always had an interest in creating my own personal care products after our youngest daughter turned out to be allergic to so many products as a baby. With her pale skin and red hair, the doctor told me that because of these traits she was at a higher risk to have sensitive skin. I am not sure how true his statements were but I do know that my daughter now 13 has had a horrible time with reacting to personal care products. 

The Aromatherapy Beauty Guide with my already large supply of essential oils and carrier oils in my house made it very easy for me to start to create my own natural personal care products. That being said I found with most of the recipes you didn't need to have a lot of oils to get started you could only have one or two oils and that would be all you would need for some of the recipes.

The Aromatherapy Beauty Guide
Using the Science of Carrier & Essential OIls
to Create Natural Personal Care Products
By Danielle Sade, BSc, CAHP
Trade Paperback, 352 pages

DANIELLE SADE, BSc, CAHP has over thirty years of experience teaching and practicing complementary health practices where she creates educational certification programs in aromatherapy and also leads workshops in making natural product formulations for personal and professional use.

She's passionate about sharing the sound scientific basis upon which aromatherapy is built and making this invaluable information available to everyone. The aromatic molecules of a plant not only have the power to shift the way you feel but the essential oils from plants also have powerful therapeutic properties. It's the dynamics of these therapeutic actions that form the foundation in Danielle's successful approach to skin care.

Danielle was also inspired to write this book because she herself has experienced skin sensitivities that didn't improve even after visits to skin specialists and conventional therapies. When the symptoms didn't subside, she took matters into her own hands and sought out a natural-medicine healing approach through essential oils.

Making your own natural botanical creams and lotions is surprisingly simple and very satisfying – you'll soon be on the road to recovery and living a more natural lifestyle.

The book is broken down into easy-to-understand sections, beginning with:
