DIY Beauty Recipes Resource
While flipping through the book, The Smart Mom’s Guide to Essential Oils trying to decide which new essential oils recipes I wanted to try I noticed it’s full of practical, holistic solutions. The book covers the history of essential oils, how to use and store essential oils, recipes for everyday emergencies, green recipes for the home (cleaning recipes), natural beauty recipes, aromatherapy blends, self care wellness, women’s hormone health and essential oils.
In the everyday emergencies the book covers recipes for common ailments for children and the recipes are broken down by age. Example: 1-5, 6-11. 12-17.
The book also covers application techniques, safety tips and precautions. Along with the 25 must-have essential oils, with in depth information.
While this 210 page book covers detailed information on the benefits of every type of oil, tips for safe practice and a list of resources it does not have pretty photos or step by step images. But, it is a great reference book for moms or anyone looking to get the most from their essential oils. Or try new DIY beauty recipes – essential oil recipes. The recipes in the book are easy to follow and use.
You can preview or purchase The Smart Mom’s Guide To Essential Oils on Amazon. At the time of this review the book is on sale. It’s available in book and kindle. Find out more about the author Dr. Mariza Snyder, from the link above too.
