If you're looking for a paper book, I'd recommend The Idiot's Guide to Making Natural Beauty Products by Sally Trew. About half the book is dedicated to cosmetics recipes (most books of this sort are dedicated to skincare, with a few cosmetics recipes thrown in at the back), and she explains things very well for someone that's new to the field.

You probably can start with intro chemistry like this one. If you are still interested in cosmetic science, Perry recommended this book. Taking a chemistry course at community college is another option. Institute of Personal Care Science offers an online cosmetic chemistry program.

I have "The Complete Book of Essential Oils & Aromatherapy" by Valerie Ann Worwood. I haven't dug into it yet but it's a pretty big book (400+ pages) and seems to cover almost every possible topic. Definitely written from more of an herbalist's/medicinal perspective, though.

Thanks for the reply! I don't know why I didn't think you'd be here, your like my skincare godmother lol. I was thinking about using it in it's original packaging but if something like this is necessary I can switch over to that.

So I've looked into some more DIY threads and I'm assuming you mean percentages, so for that I'm unsure if I need a digital scale. So I measure out the amount of oil cleanser I have now, roughly, using the digital scale. Then using another type of container, like a beaker, I measure out the correct number of Cromollient SCE I need, for example 0.60 ounces if I had about 5.40 ounces of mineral oil, to make the total batch 6 ounces. Am I missing anything?

Does anyone have Make It Up by Marie Rayma? Do you recommend it? If not, what would you recommend instead?

Epsom salts are often used in bath scrubs in order to help create a soothing soak. I use epsom salts in a lot of my bath bombs. I would imagine that brown sugar would add scent and a scrubby texture, but I have never used a sugar in a bath bomb.

I haven't made bath bombs in a few months, so I can't remember the ratios, but I do remember that some of my bath bombs turned out to be duds because I used too much liquid. You also have to take into account how humid your area is when making them. The mixture should feel like wet sand that is on the dry side...if that makes sense?

About a year and a half ago, I went through a major bath bomb phase - partly fueled by a Christmas gift of 10 lbs of citric acid from my husband. When I first started making them, I found this book super helpful- Bath Bombs by Elaine Stavert

My mom had a stinky coworker and got something like this diffuser necklace and put essential oil on the pad inside and made the chain super short so she could smell it in the office!

Did you know Amazon will donate a portion of every purchase if you shop by going to instead? Over $50,000,000 has been raised for charity - all you need to do is change the URL!

Here are your smile-ified links:

I bought it from this listing on amazon. I tried to choose something with good reviews and even went to their company website. It did say 100% arrowroot powder. Have you tried any arrowroot powders yourself? Do you notice a smell?

Personally I would recommend the book Make It Up , especially if you think you'll end up dabbling in other cosmetics (lipstick, foundation etc). If you haven't placed an order from TKB yet I'd wait until finding recipes so you can make sure to get everything needed in one go. I have a few other recipe sources bookmarked but I'm on mobile right now, I'll come back to edit this comment later.

recommended to me by a mod and I like it. You need a 200g (i believe but double check that one) calibration weight that you can probably find on ebay.

skinessentialactives might also have calibration weights and scales. I don't know much about other brands though.

You can get empty eyeshadow palettes from basically anywhere. Here's one from Amazon: DIY 12 PCS 26mm Empty Magnetic Eye Shadow Palette

I don't understand what you mean by custom boxes..could you be more specific or post a picture as an example?
