Enhance your purchase
With a flood of research showing the dangers of chemicals and toxins in most skin care products, cleaners and food items, The Big Book of Homemade Products for Your Skin, Health and Home shows readers how to make nontoxic homemade products they can trust. This new and expanded edition of 101 Easy Homemade Products for Your Skin, Health and Home serves as a complete resource for readers’ green living habits and contains 50 brand new recipes for natural products you can use every day. Readers get a huge variety of projects, including natural skin care products like Dandelion Body Butter, bath and beauty products like Fizzy Rose Lemonade Soak and Forsythia Clear Skin Toner, soaps like Sunflower Shampoo Bar or Carrot & Calendula Soap, home products like Lavender Fabric Softener and Thyme Counter Cleaner, health remedies like Basil Mint Sore Throat Spray and pet products like Herbal Dry Shampoo or Flea-Repelling Powder.
Our book stands out from others on the market because each project uses real herbs, flowers and other plants, instead of essential oils or manufactured solutions. This makes the projects more affordable and effective.
Newcomers to Jan Berry’s blog and books will love the easy guides and step-by-step projects for going green in every part of their lives, and the new recipes give the book a fresh start in the growing market of natural DIY products.
This book has 151 projects and over 100 photos.
Frequently bought together
"If I could only choose one book to lead me from garden to kitchen to make my own body care products, this would be the one. This book is a keeper!"
--Marlene Adelmann, founder and director of The Herbal Academy
--Anne-Marie Faiola, founder of SoapQueen.com, owner of Bramble Berry and author of Soap Crafting and Pure Soapmaking "Beautifully arranged and photographed! Jan has finally taken her wonderful recipes and gorgeous photography and created a dreamy handcrafter's guide. Her whimsical formulas combine play and purpose, making this a useful book to enjoy year-round."
--Holly Bellebuono, director The Bellebuono School of Herbal Medicine and author of The Essential Herbal for Natural Health and The Healing Kitchen "So many books provide recipes for the do-it-yourselfer to make at home, but few give you tips for how to craft your own recipes. I'm excited to make Jan's recipes, but over-the-moon about the idea that her readers will be encouraged to source simple ingredients from the backyard and get creative in the kitchen to make natural bodycare products at home!"
--Dawn Combs, author of Heal Local and co-owner of Mockingbird Meadows "Whether you have a small handful of dried calendula in the cupboard or a yard full of dandelions you want to put to good use, Jan Berry is your best friend. The deep connection she has with the plants she works is evident as she introduces you to their personalities and dreams up simple and creative ways to invite them into your home. 'Nerdy' doesn't quite describe this farm wife's enthusiasm for herbs--she's pure genius!"
--Rachael Brugger, managing editor at HobbyFarms.com and UrbanFarmOnline.com

So many gorgeous recipes for making homemade products. Easy to follow with beautiful pictures.
Jan is a very inspiring writer. I have several of her books now and also participated in her online soap making course.
I would highly recommend this book if you have a desire to produce wonderful homemade products.
This is one of those rare books where you find yourself thinking, you will actually make most of the products.
You won’t regret your purchase. Very good value.
It’s easy to follow interesting yet simplistic. With beautiful photographs of products its inspirational. I can’t wait to make my first lavender balm.
