A Look Inside the Products I Use to Make My Soaps and Lotions

This week, I gathered information about the oils and essential oils I use in my handmade products.  The information comes from a variety of books:

  • My soap bible: The Soapmaker’s Companionby Susan Miller Cavitch
  • The Complete book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy by Valerie Ann Worwood
  • The Essential Oils book by Colleen K. Dodt
  • A Consumer’s Dictionary of Cosmetic Ingredients by Susan Winter (my new favorite book…it is nice to have all the information in one place)
