This is a wonderful book for all those who love to prepare beautiful and practical things for themselves or their friends.
In the "Botanical Beauty" you can find nice and easy-to-follow recipes for almost every spa product imaginable. From head to toe you can treat yourself with home-made prducts like face washs, scrubs, shampoo, lotions, balms and many many more. The first thing my daughter said when she saw the recipes was "Yummy!" and she was right - most of them sound like a recipe for some cake or some confection.
The recipes are well explained and looking at those wonderful photos you just want to try all of them - at once. The beautiful photos make the "Botanical Beauty" a book that you don't just use but that I also love to browse and enjoy for the fresh and cheerful feeling it provokes.
Apart from that, you can also find a number of products that might be nice as gifts for some friends or even to make with some friends to pass a special spa day with home-made products.
A beautiful books for all those who want to pamper themselves and want to make their own beauty products for it with natural and available ingredients that you can easily find at a local store!
