This book is a good resource for choosing an oil that will be complimentary to your skin type and skincare needs. Each section is organised by recipes using a particular oil, for example, there are sections for recipes using argan oil, evening primrose oil, macadamia, etc.

I gave it 2.5 stars for using mineral water in the recipes without recommending a preservative other than a few "pinches" of citric acid and/or ascorbic acid. Water based skin and hair care items can be a perfect place for some really icky things to grow in.

There are completely natural preservatives that are available to home crafters that will inhibit mold, yeast and bacteria. I do not believe any DIY skin and hair care recipe resource should be without a lot of info about preserving homemade products.
