Book Review: Natural Homemade Skin Care
I’ve been asked to review quite a number of soap making and skin care books over the years. Some of those books, I reviewed wholeheartedly. Others, I outright turned down because I didn’t feel they were the quality my readers have come to expect. When I found out that blogger, Militza Maury, of Little Green Dot had a new book coming out, I immediately contacted her to see if I could do a review. I’m so glad I did.
You know how you get all excited and squeak out a little “eep!” and jump up and down when you see something so adorable or amazing that it totally makes your day? That’s how I felt about Militza’s book, Natural Homemade Skin Care, the first time I opened its pages. This book is filled sixty amazing, natural skin care recipes that you’re going to love to make!
Natural Homemade Skin Care includes twists on popular recipes that we all want to make right now. Products like cleaning balms and body butters, toners and face masks, scrubs and bath melts. What’s different, however, is that the these are totally new and unique recipes, that offer spin offs on products that you likely hadn’t considered. Not only are these natural skin care recipes fun to make, they also offer an exciting way to explore new ingredients without going overboard.
All the natural skin care recipes contained in this book would make great gifts throughout the year. I mean who doesn’t want flower cookie bath bombs, a creamy mango scrub or white chocolate bath melts? There are even essential oil perfume recipes to try.
I love not just the wide and creative range of recipes in this book, but also the ease of making them. All of the directions are complete, and easy to follow. You’ll also find the shelf life and skin type listed for each of the natural skin care recipes, along with tips on making each product and usage instructions.

Edible Massage Oil Ingredients:
Directions on How to Make Edible Body Oil:
Slice open the vanilla bean pod. Then scrape out the inner seeds. You can reserve these for later to use in baking.
Now measure out the jojoba and melted coconut oil into a sterilized mason jar. Combine the vanilla bean pods and cacao nibs with the oil.
Use the warm infusion method to infuse the coconut and jojoba oils with the aromatic cacao nibs and vanilla pod to give the body oil both flavor and a fragrance. (You can learn more about making herbal infused oils in Natural Homemade Skin Care.)
Once the oil is infused, strain out the cacao nibs and the vanilla pod. Then reserve the edible body oil in a sterilized bottle of your choice to use later.
