It's fun, easy, and healthy to make your own personal care products at home!

The Herbal Body Book is a virtual "cookbook" of recipes for skin and hair care products made with pure, natural ingredients. Page after page, it's like having beauty expert Stephanie Tourles at your side, showing you the best ways to use herbs for their cosmetic properties.

In more than 100 recipes, Tourles explains step-by-step her secrets for transforming common herbs, fruits, grains, oats, and more into practical products including:

— All natural facial scrubs for normal, oily, dry, and even sensitive skin.

— Silky moisturizers for hands, feet, and face.

— Rinses for hiding gray hair and bringing out highlights.

— Chemical-free insect repellent.

— Mouth-tingling herbal toothpaste.

— Flavored lip balms for kids as well as adults.

Plus, there are recipes for a full range of powders, foot baths, soaps, and shampoos.

Each recipe includes application, storage, and usage tips. Many of the recipes include gift-giving ideas and suggestions for personalizing products to suit individual taste.
