Book Description

11 July 2013
Packed with pampering recipes to create your own beauty essentials for face, body and hair. Most of us use a huge variety of beauty products on our skin and hair every day - from shower gel and shampoo to moisturizer and hand cream - but the majority of these products contain a variety of chemicals. In Natural Beauty, natural skincare and fragrance expert Karen Gilbert shows you how to make your own lotions and potions at home, using readily available, natural ingredients and easy-tofollow methods. For the face, there are moisturizers, masks and cleansers; for the body choose from scrubs and shower gels, soaps and body lotions. And when you need some extra-special pampering, try the recipes for lip balms, massage bars, bath oils and eye gels. So try your hand at making a neroli hydrating spritz or a macadamia and jojoba moisturizer, a mango and lime body butter or lemon and tea tree foot balm, bergamot and grapefruit wake-up wash or cocoa butter lip balm - the hardest part is choosing which of the pampering projects to try first! Each recipe has clear step-by-step photographs to guide you, and there are numerous variations to try.

5.0 out of 5 stars inspiring, informative, interesting 5 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback
This is a lovely book, well thought out sections with good background information on each of the types of ingredient. The recipes are lovely with clear instructions and lots of pictures on how to make the product. It also encourages you to experiment and gives alternatives for some of the ingredients. All in all I love this book, I've just started making my own cosmetics and this book has really inspired me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Book 20 May 2014
By Acorn
Format:Paperback
This is a wonderful book. It has good sections at the beginning explaining the ingredients used, and the implications with respect to ecology and function. The recipes are beautifully illustrated and very clear, and the ones I have tried have worked very well indeed.

As they say - if you only buy one book, make it this one.

There is a slight overlap with the contents of the author's other book, 'Perfume: The art and craft of fragrance' (also excellent) but it is minor and shouldn't put you off buying this one if you already have the other one.
