Book Description

Handcrafting Artisan Salves & Lip Balms From Your Kitchen

Imagine having a near magic formula that you could use to make your own beauty products for a fraction of the cost of the famous brand name ones.

Wouldn't you save a lot of money? Wouldn't that be fun...

If you are tired of buying expensive beauty products without really knowing what you are getting, it may be time for a change.

Although there is no magic formula, Alan Bullington provides you with the closest thing to magic for saving money on skin-care
products.

Crafting fantastic salves and balms is extremely simple when you follow Bullington's step-by-step formulas and proven techniques. Now luxury products can be yours for little money and little effort. Make your skin look and feel beautiful with products you can easily put together.

Did you know that the big companies make beauty products that use the exact same principles as explained in this book? Rather than paying big money, learn how to assemble your own products.

Bullington has sold thousands of salve items, and has perfected his techniques and formulas.

Make luxury skin care products for your own use, for gifts, or for marketable products by following the detailed recipes and instructions in this book.

Learn how to make:

lip balms,
body butter,
glosses,
glaze,
healing salves,
drawing salves,
deodorant bars,
and many other items you would not be able to buy.

And as a bonus, also learn how to develop your own exclusive product line that you can sell! Start your own home based business selling your skin-care products.

Editorial Reviews

Review

Handcrafting Artisan Salves & Lip Balms From Your Kitchen by Alan Bullington will not only save you quite a lot of money, the book will also help you create products that are far better than commercially produced products... Bullington will teach you all the ins and outs of creating your own products for yourself... - J Braunn

From the Author

This book grew out of our family soap making business.

We combined herbal salves and balms with our milk soap product line.

Making and selling thousands of containers of herbal salves, using essential oils for scent and aromatherapy benefits, gave us some clear ideas about what works best. That's what's in the book.

Remember that once you learn to make salves, you can then use the same methods to make lip glaze, lip gloss, lip balm, solid lotion, herbal deodorant bars, massage bars and other items like these. Why salve making is even a little like candle making!

This is a good craft to take on for sure.

This book convinced me to go salve/balm route instead of cream or lotion. Not bad and the best part is that this is paperless.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good basic information January 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a good starter book with basic information on various ingredients and simple recipes. I would have really enjoyed some pictures of finished products, and the resources section could have been more comprehensive. However, it is a solid introductory book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Glad I bought it to add to my library
I'm glad I bought it, it's kind of a "homemade" published book. I still value the recipes and glad I've added it to my soaping library.

A little skimpy on lip balm recipes, but the detail to oil & herb purposes and common measurement recommendations makes up for that.
