2.0 out of 5 stars Recipes are not great. Better books on the market, 31 July 2013
This review is from: Neal's Yard Remedies (Hardcover)
I enjoyed reading this book and the pictures and information on the herbs are wonderful. However, some of the recipes just do not add up. I have tried a few of them twice just to make sure I haven't done anything wrong even though I have been making skincare products for a few years now and didn't doubt my capability. I suppose it makes sense, why would a company that makes money from selling organic skincare be willing to share their recipes with the world. It is a bit disappointing as ingredients are expensive and I have wasted a lot on some of these recipes. This said, the book is great for inspiration for your own recipes and as I said the reference section is beautifully laid out and informative (and not ALL of the recipes are duds). There are better books like this on the market.
