Using the 'wise woman' tradition of the power of herbs and plants to answer your skin's problems, this book is brimming with over eighty enticing recipes for home beauty treatments, with advice on how to grow and harvest the required ingredients from your own garden, in a way that is 100 per cent organic. The introduction will explain the natural benefits of plants and herbs, as well as providing practical advice on getting started with your own cosmetics: weighing, measuring, equipment, storage. The first recipes are divided by skin types, with practical, but delicious sounding recipes, like Apricot Softening Mask, Fennel and Elderflower Cleansing Lotion and Aloe Vera Lip-Healer. Following these are remedies for other parts of the body including hair treatments, hand creams, bath tonics, body buffers and even make up. In addition, there are details on acupressure massage techniques, which complement natural remedies, and herbal tea recipes that rejuvenate tired skin and tired minds. Scattered throughout the book are 'plant portraits' which look at the beneficial properties of certain plants, and at the back there is an 'Organic Directory' with helpful on-line and mail order sources for natural products.
