Much detail, maybe too much for the Casual Reader
on February 4, 2014
Well, this book provides long lists of definitions and supplies needed, many of which are unfamiliar to the beginner (or "the Complete Idiot") You have to go halfway through the book to find the recipes and processes to make beauty products. It would also be helpful if it included places where one could begin to look for the many obscure ingredients used in the recipes. I live in a small town, and believe me, many of these items aren't going to be on the shelf in my local stores...... I will probably make a few of the bath and skin products, but most of this is a bit too much for me. It seems to be aimed at those who are planning to devote a great deal of time (and probably money...) to stockpile a wide ranging supply of homemade products. If this is you, this book will give you a comprehensive plan for doing so.
