I received a complimentary copy of this book from Robert Rose in exchange for this feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
I am developing more of an interest in essential oils. In fact, I recently hosted a giveaway for Aroma Foundry Essential Oils. You can check out that post here.
One of my favorite essential oils is lemon. I love diffusing lemon in the kitchen. It has such an nice clean, pleasant smell. I’ve also put a few drops in my floor steamer and a few drops in my dishwasher. Lemon. Lemon. LEMON!
Did you know that lemon essential oil, when used safely and in low dilutions for specific skin types, can be used on your skin as well? Lemon oil is a good remedy for increasing the luster of dull skin. It is astringent and detoxifying in nature, and rejuvenates sagging or tired-looking skin. Its antiseptic properties help in treating pimples and various skin disorders. Lemon is also recommended for reducing excessive oil on the skin.
In the Aromatherapy Beauty Guide, you will learn the guidelines to using lemon oil in addition to 34 other essential oils in formulations on your skin. There is an easy recipe for a skin lightening facial cleanser that I plan to try. Also, stay tuned for a DIY Basic Moisturizing Cream with only a few simple ingredients and your favorite essential oils!
There are over one hundred (100) formulations with easy-to-follow instructions on creating products for the face, body, bath!

Danielle Sade, BSc, CAHP has over thirty years of experience teaching and practicing complementary health practices where she creates educational certification programs in aromatherapy and also leads workshops in making natural product formulations for personal and professional use.
She’s passionate about sharing the sound scientific basis upon which aromatherapy is built and making this invaluable information available to everyone. The aromatic molecules of a plant not only have the power to shift the way you feel but the essential oils from plants also have powerful therapeutic properties. It’s the dynamics of these therapeutic actions that form the foundation in Danielle’s successful approach to skin care.
Danielle was also inspired to write this book because she herself has experienced skin sensitivities that didn’t improve even after visits to skin specialists and conventional therapies. When the symptoms didn’t subside, she took matters into her own hands and sought out a natural-medicine healing approach through essential oils.
Making your own natural botanical creams and lotions is surprisingly simple and very satisfying — you’ll soon be on the road to recovery and living a more natural lifestyle.
