Create naturally sumptuous personal-care products to pamper every part of your body. Master herbalist Greta Breedlove presents easy-to-follow recipes for making your own masks, rubs, and lotions that rival those found at high-end spas and specialty shops. Harness the properties of natural herbs to create unique products that soothe your body, smell lovely, and are free from any harsh ingredients.

Usage Guidelines

Slices of cucumbers to refresh tired eyes, olive oil to restore hair, a lemon rinse to lighten hair color. By no means is natural body care alien to most people, yet many of herbalist Breedlove's more than 110 recipes, remedies, and ideas will enlighten and inspire. In fact, she provides some rather unusual alternatives for most if not all of the commercial skin, hair, and other care products. Need to darken hair? Try a mix of black walnut hulls, grape leaves, wine, and water. Corns a real annoyance? Bandage roasted garlic cloves around the offending toes. Suffering from itchiness due to poison ivy or dry skin? There's the cucumber pizza solution, slathering the entire body with this green vegetable. In addition to providing tons of tips about pampering, she also walks readers through the maze of herbs and natural ingredients, from acacia flowers to zinc oxide paste. A 101 course in soothing and relaxing. Barbara Jacobs
