We all want to have natural care products that are adapted to our type of skin, safe effective and affordable … These are some of the reasons that lead us to ask the question: why not make your own beauty and health care products?

Aromatherapy is a perfect therapeutic approach that is easily used in DIY products. Thanks to the virtues of Essential Oils and other natural ingredients, it is easy to create the beauty & health care products that can act in depth and heal or take care of your body naturally. With the same oils or ingredients, it is possible to manufacture care products with different properties, benefits and applications. The delicious smells of the aromatic extracts of plants will also perfume the preparations.

Body care creams, pain relief products, relaxation roll-on… Making your beauty & health care products is ideal for those of us concerned with healing naturally. It’s a fun thing to do and with the extra time we may have when the weather is not so great, and with the holiday season why not use some quality time to make quality products to take care of yourself and your loved ones.

In this article, you will find Essencia’s DIY Kits, with 3 simple recipes designed by our aromatherapists.
