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.
and inexpensive to prepare, these recipes for shampoos and rinses, bath
and massage oils, astringents and after-shaves, 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 tell which oils 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.
