Making Aromatherapy Moisturisers Part 1
Aromatherapy moisturising lotions and creams can be tailored to individually suit your face and body. You probably put moisturisers on your face and body every day, so why not make your own, using essential oils, natural creams and waxes? This way, you can cut out the harsh chemicals and alcohols often contained in shop bought products and make lotions to suit your specific needs.
Making your own creams is simple, and they are effective and economical. You can modify them to meet unique requirements, either for yourself, or as a present for a friend. Use essential oils with reported anti-ageing effects to create anti-wrinkle creams, or ones with healing properties to make aftersun lotions.
Modifying Your Creams
There’s also nothing to stop you adding a few drops of essential oils to your existing moisturisers, transforming a simple face cream into a specialised beauty product for your complexion. Home made creams are often richer and heavier than commercial products.
