Handcrafted extracts can provide natural color, scent, and actives to your artisan cosmetics.

Luckily, 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, it can be hard to know where to start. Choosing materials and mediums can seem overwhelming – there are so many possibilities!

  • 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 oil the best solvent?

  • When is alcohol the right medium?

 
Get Started!

This richly illustrated 76 page e-book will supply you with the necessary basics to decide which mediums and raw materials you want to start working with and help you approach creating your own extracts with confidence.

Get Started Making Your Own Extracts does not go into specific detail for making each type of extract, but is an overview of the most common processes, solvent types, and raw materials.

The section on raw materials provides you with spotlighted information on a few select and classic herbs for skincare and cosmetics use and outlines which solvents they are compatible with.

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