In the 17th and 18th centuries, every large household had a still-room for making perfumes and potions, scents and soaps, scented washballs and skin lotions. Many of these recipes gained world renown - like the famous Hungary water for whitening and cleansing the skin. Herbal cosmetics are simple to make at home and can be as effective (or more so) and cheaper than commercial products
Here are some of my favorite preparations using essential oils. For a listing of herbal cosmetic uses, see my herbal cosmetic page
