An inspiring and easy-to-use primer on natural beauty, featuring 30 recipes for making your own essential oils, lip balm, face and body oils, bath salts, juices, tonics, and more, including an overview of important plant ingredients, the benefits of detoxing your beauty regimen, and tips for creating a cleaner self-care routine.
Just like chemical additives in our food, synthetic ingredients in our hair and skin care can wreak havoc with our bodies. Luckily, there's no need to compromise luxurious, effective skin and hair care for safety. From a leader in the world of natural beauty, Wild Beauty is an inspiring and highly usable guide to harnessing the miraculous power of plants to make your own face oils, body balms, hairspray, bath salts, and more. Jana Blankenship, founder of the popular beauty company Captain Blankenship, believes that organic beauty products create a direct link with nature, and ingredients like cold pressed organic plant oils, flowers, seaweeds, sea salt, and organic essential oils not only conjure the natural world, but are highly beneficial for our skin, body, hair, and senses. Wild Beauty also shows you how to create powerful essential oil blends, the building blocks to effective skin and hair care, that can be used on their own to relieve headaches and tension, elevate mood, or be worn as natural perfumes. With gorgeous photographs and tips on creating a meaningful self-care regime, this is the only book you need for true, holistic beauty.
