Publishers Weekly

"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. . . .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." - Publishers Weekly
