You don’t have to be a botanist, biologist, or chemist to create a successful extract. It does not even require pricey equipment or tools to get started. Extract making is an art that is quickly learned – but takes practice to master. 

If you’re new to extract-making, choosing materials and mediums can seem overwhelming.

  • Which plants do what? 
  • What’s best – fresh or dried raw material? 
  • How should herbs be treated before use? 
  • Is it possible to make extracts using foods? (hint: yes)
  • When is alcohol the right choice of medium?

 
Get Started!

This richly illustrated 76 page e-book will supply you with the necessary basics to start composing your own handcrafted extracts for your artisan cosmetics. 

Knowing how to combine raw material and medium with the ideal extraction method results in multifunctional magic: natural color, scent, and actives – all in one extract of your own creation.

Fair warning: making extracts is not only fun, but quite addictive!
