4.0 out of 5 stars Traditional Asian Spa Recipes, 18 Sep 2010
This review is from: Asian Secrets of Health, Beauty and Relaxation (Paperback)
The author is a beauty journalist and not a holistic therapist, so this is not a "how-to" book, but rather an "all about-spa" book. Plenty recipes, but minimal technique.

Natural traditional Asian treatments for head to toe, including body wraps, herbal baths, facial creams, hair treatments. Information about Traditional Ritual and Do it Yourself care. Pictures are dreamy and beautiful to look at. If you want to make your own exotic skin care remedies, you will enjoy this book.

However, I would recommend you rather purchase "the tropical spa" by the same author, which is a later edition and expanded version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Photography and Luscious Treatments, 20 Feb 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Asian Secrets of Health, Beauty and Relaxation (Paperback)
... It lives on my coffee table and not a day passes that I dont pick it up. The photography is amazing, especially the Spa at Jimbaran, Bali. The author highlights some great treatments such as the Mandi Susu and shows you how you can re-create them at home. The recipes are made with store cupboard ingredients and look good enough to eat. I like the Oriental Body Glow which uses Runny Honey, Sesame Seeds and Dried Herbs. This book contains information on Essential Oils and tells you about the mixes used at some of the best Spas in the world. It also contains great Asian Spa Cuisine recipes, well they would be great if I could cook. All in all this book is my favorite and I want to go to Bali now.
