Easy to cook potions
I want to share with you my best recipes that are easy to make in your kitchen, for the body and the home. You will find thousands of them on the internet and I present here only those that I prepare and use myself. I did not invent them all and they resulted from my research when I started preparing home-made products. I have tested many, validated some and adapted others. Instead of storing them in my computer and sharing them on demand with my friends, here they are available to everyone, hoping to contribute to a healthier consumption.

GOOD PRACTICES FOR MAKING HOMEMADE COSMETICS - READ BEFORE YOU START YOUR PREPARATION
Wash your hands before starting and / or wear gloves; take off your jewelry and tie your hair back.
Clean with hot water and soap then disinfect your materials, utensils and containers with alcohol before use (or boil 10 min if it is not plastic).
Store, clean and disinfect your work surface, taking care to remove all food and drinks.
Make sure before you start that you have all the materials, ingredients (valid expiration dates) and container needed to make the recipe.
We advise you to wear protective glasses and protective clothing to avoid any projection accident.
If heating is necessary, the usual precautions must be observed to avoid burns.
Follow the advice, procedures and recommended dosages.
Even natural, some products can be allergenic. It is important to always test the application of your preparation in the crease of the elbow for at least 24 hours before use in order to check that you do not have any reaction (redness, tingling, respiratory discomfort, etc.). If there is a reaction, stop using the mixture.
Make sure at the end of the production that the result corresponds to what you want to achieve: appearance, color, smell. In case of bad result, do not use the mixture.
External use only. Do not swallow. Do not inhale. Avoid contact with eyes.
Keep out of sight and reach of children.
Handle heated products with care to avoid burns.
For leave-on cosmetic products, an overdose of glycerin (over 10%) could have a drying effect on the skin.
Coconut oil crystallizes at room temperature. Avocado oil crystallizes at a temperature below 10 °. Run the vials under a stream of hot water to liquefy the oil if necessary.
Your preparations must be labeled, dated and kept out of the reach of children in order to avoid any misuse (name of the product, composition, date of manufacture, shelf life, capacity).
We advise you to keep a log of your recipes (ingredients, batch numbers of ingredients, quantities introduced and date of manufacture).
At the slightest change in appearance, color or smell, throw away your preparation.
