Making our own natural skincare products is a fun and creative hobby that we can enjoy from the comfort of our own homes.
The beautiful thing about this hobby is that once you understand the basics and know where to get accurate and reliable information – plus a few good recipes – you can make some amazing products for a fraction of the price of shop-bought brands.
Plus, when it comes to occupying, entertaining and educating our children, learning to make a few simple products is an absolute winner!
