Every year, Americans spend nearly 50 billion dollars on cosmetic products. The beauty and skin care industry is definitely big business. This includes everything from soaps and gels we use everyday to acne treatments, anti-aging skin products, deodorants, and moisturizers. Each and every year, thousands of new treatments are created and brought to the market, promising to reduce the appearance of aging or energize your body, mind and spirit. There seems to be no end in sight. Unfortunately though, many of these products don’t always live up to those promises, simply because man-made ingredients don’t possess the same healing properties that nature provides from plants and resins, namely essential oils. In fact, many of the ingredients found in commercial products are dangerous to your health.

We tend to think of our skin, our body’s largest organ, as a barrier—keeping environmental toxins from entering our body, protecting us in the winter from the effects of cold, and guarding us in the summer from the ravages of the UV rays of the sun. But it’s actually more like a sponge, soaking up everything it comes in contact with.

When you put cosmetics on your skin that are less than healthy—even toxic—all the potentially toxic ingredients are soaked directly into your skin and your system. Surely there must be a better way to make you look and feel better without putting your health on the line everyday! While having healthy skin is far more important than we realize, few of us pay much attention to the commercial products we use to cleanse and moisturize with.

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with striving to look as attractive as you can. But at what price are we, as a society, paying for this quest for beauty and youthfulness? According to some health experts, our skin is attacked and stressed every day, being barraged by the myriad of substances we use to clean and repair it, most of which is performed in the name of beauty. Clearly, more than beauty is at stake! As it turns out, the price could very well be our health. Consider this: we’re putting substances on our skin that we would never dream of eating.

Are you aware that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has a list that contains some 10,000 cosmetic and skin care ingredients that you can find right now in your bathroom? Most of us take for granted that these products are safe. But more than a whopping 90% of them have never been tested for safety, by the FDA, nor by any other publically accountable institution. In contrast, the European Union has already banned more than 1,000 ingredients used in personal and skin care products. The FDA has only banned ten!

For example, many cosmetics and skin care products such as soap contain a substance called parabens, a fairly common additive that penetrates the skin. Once parabens get into your body, they stay there and slowly damage your system. The FDA estimates that this class of chemical is the most widely used family of preservatives in cosmetics today and is found in 13,200 skin care ingredients. And if you think that the products you’re using are parabens-free because they’re labeled organic, think again. Parabens have raised their ugly heads there too. Take a quick look now at the products you are using in your bathroom. Read the labels on your sham­poos, your makeup and hair care products, your moisturizers, and even your shaving products. Look for prefixes before this word, like methyl, propyl, butyl and ethyl. These are all types of parabens.

So, just how dangerous could this chemical preservative be? Parabens are linked to a greater risk of breast cancer in women. These substances soak into your skin, linger in your body and then settle into the breast tissue, according to the Women’s Community Cancer Project of Cambridge, Massachusetts. Once they’re in your system, parabens begin what’s called estrogenic activity. This means they mimic the hormone estrogen and are believed to stimulate breast cancer activity. In a nutshell, the parabens actually fool your body into thinking there’s more estrogen present than there really is. In the process, they raise your risk of breast cancer.

So, if brands labeled as natural have this dangerous substance lurking inside, how do you avoid this and other potentially dangerous synthetic ingredients? You could become a diligent label reader, but you’d no doubt find there are very few products on the shelves today that are completely natural—despite the advertising hype surrounding them. So how do you avoid these products? The answer is simple: by making your own skin care treatments.

Why Make Your Own Bath & Body Products

There are two reasons for creating your own bath and body products with essential oils to pamper your skin—and believe me you really will feel a wondrous difference from the commercially produced items you’ve been using!

The first is having peace of mind knowing what is in the products you are using. The products you’ll be making call for all-natural ingredients. In fact, many of the ingredients can be found right in your kitchen. This ensures your bath products don’t contain any of the harmful and toxic ingredients store-bought pro­ducts contain, while saving you loads of money. You get to choose which ingredients you want to add—depending on what you have on hand, the possibilities are endless!

But there’s a second reason. All commercially derived products containing these complex substances that sound beneficial to your skin such as antioxidants, proteins, vitamins, enzymes, and phyto­chemicals, are duplicated synthetically. This means they are far less effective than the natural versions. Think of it as taking vitamins versus eating healthy. It’s always better to have a good, healthy diet than to rely solely on vitamin tablets—especially synthetic vitamins—for your nourishment.

Ask any professional Aromatherapist and she’ll tell you the same thing. The chemical constituents found in essential oils actually work in harmony with your body and have an amazing ability to rejuvenate your skin, unlike synthetics. Essential oil-based treatments are far more effective than the ones the cosmetic companies churn out.

By making your own natural skin care products from the recipes in this book, you will no longer be endangering your health and will still be able to get the results you see advertised on television and in magazines such as:

Hasten collagen production

Improve your skin’s moisture content

Boost your skin’s ability to protect you from environmental toxins

Reduce the effects of free radicals that can damage your skin

Encourage and stimulate the renewal and repair of your skin cells

And, best of all, it doesn’t take much time or any fancy equipment. So, where do you start?

This book is a compilation of some of the easiest and most effective skin care therapies around. The recipes are easy to create and all come with years of proven use. Many of these formulas have been handed down for generations from grandmother to mother to daughter. Other recipes were created by professional Aromatherapists who have studied for years and used their knowledge in formulating the most effective remedies for skin care.

You will find recipes for facial scrubs, masks, bath salts, lip balms, body lotions, bath bombs, body oils, body powders, sprays, bubble bath and more! Once you become experienced in creating these easy treatments, you may want to experiment with different essential oils to find the perfect proportions for your personal skin type. This way, your skin can receive the optimum beneficial effects possible.

Essential oils are vital, aromatic fluids distilled from a plant’s leaves,

    Essential oils and their use have increased in popularity over the last few years. People have been using essential oils for years, but the increased interest in holistic health and aromatherapy have kicked their use into the mainstream. Essential oils are being used for skin care, internal health, air purification, as well as treatment for medical conditons.ORGANIC BEAUTY takes the guess work out of using essential oils and shares charts and lists of the various oils and how they are best used, what oils are best for certain conditions, and how they should be combined and/or diluted. The book is broken up in to chapters related to caring for your body, face, hair, mouth, hands/nails, and feet. Each section is full of recipes with various flavors, scents, and treatments for self-care.If you are interested in making your own soaps, lip balms, scrubs, powders, and bath oils or experimenting with different oils and their health benefits, this would be a great book to start with. The recipes are all very simple to follow and use regular ingredients found in your grocery store along with the essential oils. In fact, one recipe for a facial scrub uses cat litter! Now, I'm not sure I can imagine using cat litter on my face, but it states it purge toxins and other impurities found in facial pores.I think this book assumes you are familiar with essential oils and their use. So for me, as a complete beginner and a bit confused about essential oils, I might want to do a bit more research before starting out in making my own products.This book is a great resource for anyone looking to begin making products either for your own use or for gifts. I think the first one I'd like to try making is the Mint-Chocolate Lip Balm. Who doesn't want to put mint chocolate on your lips all day long? The information gained from the research Totilo put together can help those new to essential oils find the best treatment for their needs.
