Book Description

Skin, hair, eyes, nails and body all look and function better if your general health is good. Cosmetics will do little to improve the appearance of women who are not getting sufficient fresh air, exercise, good sleep or relaxation and who are not eating the correct foods the body needs to maintain good health.

When beginning to use homemade herbal cosmetics for the first time, study how these same herbs can be taken internally in order to back up the action of the cosmetics and accelerate their effectiveness overall. The benefits to be gained from using your own herbal cosmetics are many: the lovely scents and fragrance of herbs, and the other natural ingredients which you will use, have a relaxing effect that increases the beneficial action of your mixture.

Most of the ingredients required to make cosmetics are already standing on the kitchen shelf. They are safe and natural, and most of them form part of the daily diet. On the whole they are inexpensive to buy, but cost is an important point, since homemade cosmetics do not keep as well as proprietary items which contain preservative chemicals; it is these chemical constituents that can harm the skin. Once you have become familiar with making your own herbal cosmetics, you will soon discover which herbs are best suited to your particular needs. Fresh herbs, are preferable, but dried ones are fine so long as they have a good colour and aroma.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lots of recipes but lacking herb info 4 Mar. 2014

Format:Kindle Edition
I was hoping this book would cover they kinds of herbs to use for beauty and WHY each herb is used... but instead it just gives lots of recipes without a lot of depth or background on ingredients. Very disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great herb book! 7 Dec. 2013

I purchased "Medicinal Herbs" and "50 Popular Types of Herb" and loved them. When I saw another book on herbs by Gerard Strong I made the purchase right away. I absolutely love his writing style and he's very educated on these herbs and what all they can do. It is amazing that you can use herbs for both beauty and perfume! I highly recommend this book and especially for women. Once again, Gerard Strong has written another amazingly informative book on herbs!
