Description

Master your own custom perfume blends with ingredients to benefit your mind, body, and emotions in All-Natural Perfume Making.

Just like magic, turn botanical herbs, flowers, and essential oils into wonderful-smelling, healthy, and sustainable perfumes. In All-Natural Perfume Making, author and herbalist Kristen Schuhmann guides beginning perfumers in the art and techniques of crafting oil-based, alcohol-based, and solid perfumes. Learn the history and traditional benefits of certain scents as you create your own unique blends from a variety of plant-based ingredients.

In addition to smelling good,natural scents can be a powerful self-care tool to benefit mental and emotional health. Feeling anxious? A blend of vanilla, lavender, cedarwood, and neroli can help relax frazzled nerves. Have a big test coming up? Boost your brain power with rosemary, sweet orange, and peppermint. Once you've grasped the techniques in All-Natural Perfume Making, the possibilities are endless as you mix, layer, and experiment with natural scents.

Perfect for the beginner who wants to create their own signature scents without the use of harsh chemicals, this book provides a solid base on the philosophy and methods of crafting all-natural fragrances that not only smell fantastic but can add to your well-being.
