Botanical Beauty: 80 Essential Recipes for Natural Spa Products

Aubre Andrus. Switch, $14.95 paper (160p) ISBN 978-1-63079-075-2
Readers needn’t look much further than their own homes for wholesome body and beauty products, suggests Andrus in this extensive collection of recipes for bath salts, scrubs, masks, shaving cream, and other items often sold at health and beauty stores. Airy photographs of ingredients and finished products accompany each recipe, emphasizing their simplicity and natural components (one exfoliating scrub uses only baking soda and jojoba oil). Other recipes include a mocha salt scrub, DIY deodorant, lavender- and tea-tree-oil-based bug spray, lip balm, and toothpaste made from essential oil and baking soda. Broadening the book’s scope are craft ideas for hair wraps, ties, and a towel wrap, as well as decorating and packaging tips—a small reminder that homemade gift-giving can feel as good as self-care. Ages 14–up. (Apr.)
