Description

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 lotion--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-to-follow 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.
