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.

I am brand new to creating my own natural product line. I have read a very many books so,far and while some are good there are others that simply leave,you scratching your head. This book was great. Informative, to the point and honest. I learned more here in the hour I spent with it then in 5 of the previous books I read. Thank you for sharing your knowledge:) God Bless:)

The author covers this subject well, giving reasons why you should handcraft salves and balms, providing some understanding of how the various ingredients work as well as process hints from his considerable experience and proven sources for the ingredients. He provides a number of recipes and suggestions for how to vary them to customize them. This is a fluff-free book. It is quick to read, but it is intended to serve as a guide for actually making product. I enjoyed reading it and look forward to creating some salves myself.
Don't ignore the wisdom in weighing vs. using volumetric measures. All chemical equations are mass-balance, not volumetric. We are so accustomed to volumetric measures in the kitchen, but even Alton Brown, the famous cooking guru of the cooking network, recommends weighing ingredients.
Alan, thanks for a good guide. Don 't understand the reviewer who said there were no recipes. Odd. Perhaps he confused your book for another.

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.

Great read! I covered this front to back in 2 and a half hours and learned more than I could in all the research I've done in the last 3 weeks. I started making my own salves and balms after the kids had a bout with poison ivy and I know nature's poison ivy cure..but couldn't figure how to preserve it until some research. Now I am making healing salves and body butters of all kinds and this book added many ideas to my cabinet. I already sell them, but the info and links to wholesale and label/canning supplies is nice too. Good to have a few ratios and recipes to build on as well. Worth a read.

This is a great introduction to making salves and balms. Very basic and easy to understand. Perfect for the beginner crafter.

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.

This little book has some different recipes in it, but I think you can find others online that are more do-able. Most of the recipes require ingredients that are expensive to gather together, so you would need to make quantities before the ingredients expire. I wasn't too impressed.

This is an easy read, while being very informative and easy to follow. Al makes it a simple process to quit rubbing PETROLEUM on your skin and start using skin loving plant oils instead. I only wish there were a few more recipes for those of us who aren't as creative as others.
