When beginning to use homemade herbal cosmetics for the first time, study how these same herbs can be taken internally in order to back up the action of the cosmetics and accelerate their effectiveness overall. The benefits to be gained from using your own herbal cosmetics are many: the lovely scents and fragrance of herbs, and the other natural ingredients which you will use, have a relaxing effect that increases the beneficial action of your mixture.
Most of the ingredients required to make cosmetics are already standing on the kitchen shelf. They are safe and natural, and most of them form part of the daily diet. On the whole they are inexpensive to buy, but cost is an important point, since homemade cosmetics do not keep as well as proprietary items which contain preservative chemicals; it is these chemical constituents that can harm the skin. Once you have become familiar with making your own herbal cosmetics, you will soon discover which herbs are best suited to your particular needs. Fresh herbs, are preferable, but dried ones are fine so long as they have a good colour and aroma.
