Such a lovely book with practical and beautiful recipes for making natural products. Coming from the UK, you can source almost all the ingredients (although I've yet to source 90-100% ethanol/grain alcohol for the room/body sprays - but it's possible to use witch hazel). I also really appreciate that measurements include mls - giving me less time to convert from 0z to ml! There's something for everyone here, and for all budgets, with simple 2-ingredient recipes to more creative concoctions. I found the Honey Wash a game changer - this has now become my regular cleanser. I love that she has included how to make hydrosols (simple-way) and uses herbs. A brilliant book for skincare and brilliant ideas for natural and beautiful gifts!
If you like DIY this is for you. I live in UK and I managed to get all types of oils from " thesoapery.co.uk" website. I don't have the fruits powders she uses in this book, but I haven't searched for it, yet. I did body butter, lip balm so far. I highly recommend. This book use essential oils as well, but you can buy that easily. I use Young Living essential oils, but there are lots of brands out there. I would recommend to get good quality ingredients for your DIY body/ beauty products.
I brought it as a present for a friend who is starting to make her own home made creams etc. The boom was beautifully explained. It would have been nice to have a few non common recipes but for her who isn’t 100% confident in English. It was easy for her to follow and understand. She loves it! And I’m happy with it.
I've been following Militza since she was still living in Singapore and when I heard that she finally published her own recipe book I knew I'll have to get my hands on it! I work in the skincare industry and have read almost every natural skincare book on the market, so I was curious about what Militza was going to offer. Militza revamped traditional skincare recipes, added an astonishing twist to recipes with fruits and innovatively utilized superfood. Also, I loved the additional tips & small tweaks, she recommended, to ensure you get the recipe right every time.
What a wonderful compilation of skin care recipes that can be daily created from your home! I stumbled across Little Green Dot online and have been using her remedies ever since. Making skin care has never been broken down so easily, and the best part is the minimal of ingredients used for any given routine such as cleansers, toners, moisturizers or scrubs. The part I enjoy is that there are different options for each category based on effect desired. For me, I enjoy making body butters the most and I still try combining different suggestions together to see which had the best impact on my skin during the changes in the temperature. However, because all the ingredients can be found in multiple recipes, for different uses, I find that I have more options to enhance my skin than just buying a product for one singular use. Overall, the book is a fabulous resource and a great addition to the home herbalist, as the book can even be read for reference for self study. Highly recommend!
Cannot wait to try some of the recipes! I dog eared the pages on the ones I want to try. Love that the recipes are simple, only a few ingredients and some ingredients are repeated. I saw the book in one of my magazines and thought I would buy it. I thought it would be like some of the other books I purchased and would be hunting down everywhere for the ingredients....not so with this book! Either my health food store locally or Whole Foods had the ingredients. Anxious to try the recipes and have fun. I live cooking, so why not whip up a batch of goodness for my relaxing time in the bath. Love the Tips and helpful extras.
I love love love this book. Every page is just another great recipe after another. It’s perfect for those who are just starting out on this natural journey and who want to know the basics with added yummy information so you’re not overwhelmed . I’d say 95% of the ingredients I already had at home. It’s one of my favorite books.
