The Main Guide
Get a cup of your favorite hot beverage ready. It’s never too early to learn to take time out and pamper yourself! As you dive in, the book begins discussing the business end of selling crafts, and includes some pointers including material safety, branding and marketing. I liked that part about “what different colors convey” it reminded me of the personality test I took that revealed why orange is my favorite color-but I digress.
The next part goes into the recipes and ingredients themselves. I did kind of wish there was a table of contents but that’s just me; something I’m used to. Among the niches of beauty products for which there were recipes were soap, bath bombs and fizzies, potpourri, bath salts, lotions, and facial treatment mixtures.

I think my favorite is the spice ball. I did a double take when I realized that was the first time I have heard the term “orange pomander”. Remember the classic orange studded with cloves that people love to do around the holidays? I haven’t made those in years.
The last pages are devoted to a handy measurement/conversion guide, a glossary of terms, and a list of ingredient suppliers so you will have an idea for places to visit to purchase them.
Making Potpourri Crafts
In addition to the main ebook you’ll also receive as a special bonus 2 guides on the subject of making potpourri. Ah, that one on potpourri takes me back. Remember how big that was in the 80s? People used to let it simmer on a stovetop. There are a couple of stovetop simmering recipes included.
What better way to warm up in the winter and create that homey ambiance than your own fragrant spice stew? Book one discusses the in’s and out’s of potpourri which can serve as a refresher course if it’s been awhile since you spent time gathering flora and fauna together.
Book 2 goes right to the recipes; which you’re sure to enjoy if you are already familiar with floral arrangements. Many times it makes for a great centerpiece. You’ll get preservation tips and additional hints for ways to use them. It’s a little briefer at about 8 pages.
If you’re looking for something beyond a chalky stick of lip balm this one is for you! You’ll learn how to add a little glitter, color and pizzazz with the detailed recipes. At first I thought this sounds like a slumber party kind of pastime but apparently people do take this seriously and rake in the dough with handmade lip gloss.
Full disclosure: I must confess I’ve never tried to make lip gloss. I have made candles, unique mold soap, bath fizzies and bath salts on my own. but mainly due to lack of know-how haven’t attempted lip gloss. Now I have an incentive to do so.
I always wondered what kind of containers were used to actually keep the finished gloss in…These are all so petite and most small containers are still too big. Well, I got some ideas out of reading this bonus.
Do you need to buy anything else?
I believe there is one additional OTO that will be introduced as you go through the order flow. I did not take the bait on this one.
Mainly you will be looking into the respective supplies needed to make your creations as well as packaging and branding materials, if you decide that you want to take your passion to the next level of your own beauty biz.
Should you buy this guide if you’re just looking for ways to make new creations for fun and enjoyment? Absolutely. The business part of it discussed is for those looking to take it to the next level. You’ll have more than enough inspiration if you’re someone looking for new activities to host girls’ only spa days, pamper parties, and heck even teen and tween sleepovers.
It won’t take you long to read…you’d spend more time most likely locating the necessary items (the included suppliers lists make this much easier)

Worth the small price tag if you have a passion for spa products regardless of niche!
