Natural skincare and fragrance expert Karen Gilbert shows you how to make your own lotions and potions that are kind to your skin and the environment.
Most of us use a huge variety of beauty products on our skin and hair every day, but the majority of these contain a variety of chemicals and toxins that can be harmful to you and to the environment. Now, you can create your own beauty essentials with these 35 facial, body and hair recipes. From a neroli hydrating spritz to a macadamia and jojoba moisturiser, a mango and lime body butter to a lemon and tea tree foot balm, and a bergamot and grapefruit wake-up wash to a 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, comprehensive lists of equipment and ingredients and easy-to-follow instructions – you'll wonder why you ever bought beauty products in the first place.
