Any Reccomendations On Making My Own Natural Products From Essential Oils And Herbs?

  • Sharebar

I have been collecting essential oils and vast variety of herbs. I am very interested in making my own natural beauty and health care aids. I was wondering if anyone has any advice on getting started? Where do you buy glycerin? I have been unable to find it anywhere. Any input will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    A best glycerin site be: http://www.herbspro.com (for formulation from liquid glycerin as a natural emollient and skin protectant.)
    You want to manufacture your own soaps I have the following advice:
    Natural beeswax has become a most popular, but I like the idea of using glycerine chips but they’re more difficult to search for seller of.
    The purest essential oils of a high grade will be found at the online store: http://www.mothernature.com

    ***Glycerin
    You do not need to use Food Grade Vegetable Glycerin if you are only making EXTERNAL products, but if you are going to ingest the glycerin (medicinal tinctures, for example) you will want at least 99% Food Grade Vegetable Glycerin. Be sure and verify the type before purchasing.
    I have bought from
    ***AZURE STANDARD $26.35/gallon-also available in smaller sizeshttp://www.azurestandard.com/products/in…
    ***FROM NATURE WITH LOVE $20.00/gallon-also available in smaller sizeshttp://www.fromnaturewithlove.com/
    (their’s is not Food Grade, from what I understand)
    ***BOTANICAL.com $29.00/gallon-also available in 16 oz. sizehttp://www.botanical.com/products/supply…
    ******I do not have any negative feedback for any of these companies. I usually just buy my glycerin from whichever company I am ordering herbs or other supplies from. I like all of these companies. I have never paid more than $25/gallon. When I bought from Azure Standard, the price at check-out was actually $18. That was great because it is the shipping that gets you—it’s heavy!
    NATURAL BEAUTY PRODUCTS
    I found a great book with recipes for natural facial steams, scrubs, toners, moisturizers, cleansers, masks, shampoos, etc. It calls for various essential oils, herbs, and other such products. I got my copy from Amazon for less than $4!!!
    The Herbal Body Book (A Natural Approach To Healthier Hair, Skin, and Nails) by Stephanie Tourles
