To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a wonderful book for beginners and more experienced makers like myself. Having researched natural butters and oils a bit already and made some creams and oils myself, I'm at a point where I want to learn more, and bring my love and experience of herbalism to making facial and body creams oils. This book is all that I wanted and hoped for, with loads more. The lovely writers are aromatherapists, among other things, and their knowledge, experience and passion for plants is clear in every part of this book. Things I love the most are the very detailed but clearly laid out lists of chemical constituents and properties for essential oils, oils and butters, a few of which I have never heard of (tomato seed oil, who knew?!) and plants. I didn't expect a chapter on infusing some of my favourite healing plants, although I hoped they would appear somewhere, nor a whole section on fruits! I love this book! I have learnt so much already from a couple of hours of browsing and have barely glanced at the recipes. If you are a beginner or more experienced maker and want to learn more about natural plant products and making face and body creams, scrubs and oils, this is a brilliant book to have. I can't recommend it enough.
Disappointing. Jammed with lists that hold less information on each ingredient than you can find on the internet for yourself. Would recommend for a beginner who is looking for lists, but not for anyone who wants details. Lovely looking book though. Would be a nice gift.
