Publisher Comments:

Radiantly healthy skin, hair, feet, hands, eyes, and nails. Commercial beauty products make this promise every day and live up to it with varying degrees of success. Stephanie Tourles offers a better solution to everyone frustrated with the endless cycle of expensive, synthetic, famous-name cosmetics that often fall short of expectations. Take control of beauty treatments with homemade products that use safe, nourishing ingredients to pamper the body and soothe the senses.

Tourles, a licensed esthetician, herbalist, and aromatherapist, has developed 175 recipes that are fun, simple, and immensely satisfying to make in home kitchens. Her natural beauty treatments deliver the results promised by department store brands — skin, hair, and nails that glow with vitality and inner wellness. Lotions, scrubs, toners, balms, and masks polish and balance the skin, soothe current problems, and prevent future ones. Shampoos, rinses, and conditioners tone the scalp, boost highlights, and leave hair soft and shiny. The book's whole-body coverage also includes recipes for hand and footcare, nail treatments, shaving cream, and even popular spa treatments such as microdermabrasion exfoliants, detox and cellulite soaks, ayurvedic oils, and herbal cold salves. Most important, there is never any doubt about the purity of these ingredients!

Each formula is clearly presented in recipe style, with notes on prep time, storage, and uses. Many products can be customized according to personal needs, whim, or mood, and they all use readily available, natural ingredients. Organic Body Care Recipes is a natural treasure for every body.

Synopsis:

150 all-natural skin, hair and body care recipes that are inexpensive, toxin-free, and easy for readers to make themselves.

Homemade Beauty is a beautifully packaged collection of 150 all-natural skin, hair and body care recipes. From turning blueberries into a lush detoxifying mask to fresh lemongrass into a non-toxic bug repellent, Homemade Beauty takes the ubiquitous eat-local, farm-to-table concept and brings it to the beauty category.

As reports on the dangers of chemicals in cosmetics become increasingly alarming and the aspiration to live a more natural life grows, many of us are eager to take beauty regimens into our own hands to ensure we are putting only the safest and most natural ingredients on our bodies. Commercially available organic beauty products are expensive, but they are easy and cheaper to make at home and most require 5 simple ingredients or less. Recipes like Almond Rose Body Lotion, Coconut Lavender Shampoo, and Brown Sugar Vanilla Scrub will enchant you with heady scents and#150; and thrill you when you realize these pampering products take only 5 minutes to make!

Synopsis:

Nurture Your Natural Beauty

Terra Leigh, February 10, 2015 (view all comments by Terra Leigh)
I'm so excited to have found this book! If you are interested in dabbling in making your own skin or hair products, this is a great book. It has plenty of very, very simple recipes, most of whose ingredients you may very well own without realizing it, as well as more advanced recipes and variations if you are someone who has acquired a large number of essential oils and base oils and likes to play around. Also, and this is important for me since I'm a doula, her dictionary of ingredients at the beginning of the book includes notes on which ingredients are counter-indicated for pregnant women, as well as little notes on which ingredients are toxic for pets. There aren't any recipes on making products for animals, but I always look for books that include this information. I would highly recommend this book to anyone trying to take better (and easier and cheaper!) care of themselves with delicious, easy-to-make cleansers, moisturizers, and treatments.
