Natural beauty comes from nature not labs and factories. There are many over-the-counter, mass produced, personal care products that can be replaced with a few basic ingredients using these old fashioned remedies for personal care. Essential oils can smooth away wrinkles, and soften damaged skin. There is a very real difference when using real essential oils, rather than the artificial fragrances that are added to commercial skin lotions, hair care products, and facial creams. Not only do these pure, unadulterated organic oils smell better, they work on a healing level that synthetic compounds cannot duplicate.

In today's busy world, you may think you don't have the time to make up your own cosmetics like your great grandmother once did. Many modern women who are concerned with the level of toxic chemicals that form the basis of most beauty products turn to natural, organic brands instead. This is a good thing. The drawback is, 1: quality organic products tend to cost three or four times more than their synthetic counterparts, and 2: Many of them only contain a very small percentage of the natural herbal extracts and oils that are needed to be effective. A good solution to insure both quality and control cost is to buy simple bulk ingredients, like aloe vera gel, organic oils like olive and almond oil, then transform them into simple and effective home beauty treatments by adding essential oils. You will find my formulas for home beauty with real aromatherapy oils below, and I hope that they give you plenty of ideas for making your own. These remedies celebrate the art and craft of home cosmetics and skin care. You might be surprised at how easy and fun it can be.
