Another great ARC from Netgalley, Stephanie L. Tourles and Storey Publishing
With sensitive skin I’m always looking for something to enhance my skin without being too harsh but I always come up short when scouring the shelves for brands that are both eco-friendly and useful so a couple of years ago I started experimenting with essential oils and raw ingredients to get the result I really wanted.
Needless to say, I’ve read my fair share of herbal beauty remedies and recipes over the years but none quite like this one.
Outlining everything from small 2-step mixtures to more in-depth concoctions this book has it all and if you’re in need of some materials you can find them reasonably priced on Amazon or smaller boutique shops. I recommend trying new things when it comes to your skin and sometimes the best elixirs are those we make from home with the guidance of a pro!
