Can I Make Herbal Cosmetics?

If you can follow a simple cookery recipe or make a cup of tea you can make your own cosmetics. That said, there are a few rules to follow:

Use glass or ceramic cookware.

  • All utensils and containers must be scrupulously clean. Remember, you will not be using preservatives, so before use, wash bowls and pans in hot soapy water, then dry in a low oven (think jam jars).
  • Buy some dark glass bottles and jars with tight fitting lids to store your products. Light can cause some products to deteriorate.
  • Have labels handy and always add the date the product was made. Cosmetics made without preservatives have a shorter shelf life.
