Scents & Sensibilities

Updated on January 31, 2013
5 stars for Scents & Sensibilities

Scents & Sensibilities was written by Mandy Aftel

I love aromatherapy and essential oils. Naturally, the idea of making by own solid perfume with essential oils brings me much joy.

This charming, little treasure takes you through a quick journey exploring the history of solid perfumes and then carries you and takes you to the land of blending information, and information of some essential oils. The equipment and supply list is very handy and great to go over before you actually start making your own solid perfume. She is gracious enough to share some of her recipes. Examples of what some of her recipes are for: tranquility, joy, sensuality, and more.

This is one of the cutest, little books I have seen with the best explanations and pictures that guide you step by step on how to make your own solid perfume It will always hold a place in my home library.

I have read this book many times, and love going over it now and again. It is one of those that you can read in 45 minutes, freshen up the memory and start making your own solid perfume. I never get tired of it.

This is a great homemade product that you can make for yourself, for gifts, by yourself, or with family and friends.

      Very interesting Hub - I went to the Amazon site and "looked inside" the book and read the customer reviews. I'd never thought of making solid perfumes and might look into what's entailed. If you make solid perfumes yourself, I'd be very interested in reading a few "how-to" Hubs by you.
