Although all the recipes here have been selected with safety, before you try out of your homemade coesmetics, always try new preparations out on your inner arm. Leave it for 24 hours to see if you have developed a rash or had an adverse reaction. This is especially important for people who have a sensitive skin. Certain essential oils should not be handled by pregnant women or where there is an existing medical condition. If in doubt, seek medical advice, wear rubber gloves when handling any concentrated oil and spice blends to avoid irritation.
