Using Herbs in Natural Cosmetics:
An inspirational guide and reference to using well-known and forgotten herbs in your natural skincare products.
I am currently writing a book on this topic. I also teach a series of specialist online classes for natural cosmetic-formulators based on this work (so that people can get help in this area now). Sign-up below to receive notifications when these online classes and publication are available.
REMEMBER TO SIGN UP FOR MY REGULAR NEWSLETTER!
The amount of information online can be overwhelming for people: it takes experience to tell the reliable sources of info from the bad ones. My regular newsletter about medicinal, edible and cosmetic herbs goes out twice a month. I’ve got articles lined up on a variety of topics: from home use to hospitals, from skincare to sustainability, from essential oils to edible treats. Whether you are a total beginner or someone with experience, there should be something of interest for you here. If you would like to learn from a source more reliable than an online search or a novice group then please click this link to sign up to receive my new newsletter. Thank you! I look forward to sharing my experience with you so that you can start to use herbs joyfully and with confidence.
