A Witch’s Book of Potions : Beauty

I’ve always enjoyed making my own natural beauty products. ┬áCommercial cosmetics are often full of harmful chemicals, so this way I know exactly what I’m putting on my skin and I know it wasn’t tested on animals. Plus, there is something witchy about mixing together different ingredients and ending up with something that makes you prettier!


These are some of my favourite blogs about natural beauty, along with some of their best recipes and tips.
