4.0 out of 5 stars A good all-rounder 18 Oct 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I currently have this book from the library, and now I'm going to buy it. As someone who is interested in 'going back to nature', I have read quite a few books on natural remedies, skin/hair/body care products and household cleaning. I found this book nice and easy to use (it's broken down into sections, then broken down again into numbered points rather than paragraphs) and covers a little bit on most things.

A word of warning though, if you are looking for something that covers purely remedies for ills and ailments or something that has depth then this probably isn't the book for you, it's more of a quick reference book.

5.0 out of 5 stars simple but full of great info 4 Mar 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Laurel Vukovic has covered so much in this colourful book. This is a great one for people looking to take a more natural approach to their health, house and beautycare without needing complicated combinations of herbs and ingredients. The above review covers nicely way the book is broken into sections, I particularly like the way it uses simple ingredients easily sourced from chemists or healthfood shops...and therefore have used lots of them and can vouch for their effectiveness! A lot of friends and relatives with a more conventional outlook have also been persuaded to experiment with the advices...for example with laundry care and with treating head lice and now swear by them!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful reference book 9 Jan 2011
By Emily H
Format:Paperback
I bought this book a few years ago, and still dip into it time and time again. The skincare recipes are wonderful...they really work, this book has changed the way I think about skincare, and has greatly expanded my knowledge of essential oils and herbs. By explaining exactly what each ingredient does, the reader gains the confidence to tweak the recipes to suit themselves, and maybe create their own.

The only thing missing from this book is a chapter on baby care, otherwise I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in a natural approach to health and beauty.

3.0 out of 5 stars too superficial 16 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
is good though it is no where in depth, it as some remedies that are quite good but is more dedicated to beauty and household stuff like how to polishe your silver ware with vinegar or lemons. I was expecting something more about health
