Natural Skincare Recipe Books

Last week I wrote about resources where you can buy ingredients to make your own skincare products. In this post I would like to share a few great books where you can learn different recipes of how to make your own natural skincare products.

Nature’s Beauty Secrets: Recipes for Beauty Treatment from the world’s Best Spas

This beautiful book takes you to visit different spas around the world and shares some easy to do, at home beauty recipes.  You can also find useful information there about how to relax and improve your daily life. The photos are beautiful and make you feel like you are in a spa. It’s a great book to give as a gift.

Pure Skin: Organic Beauty Basics

In this book you can find information about the different natural ingredients and their use for different skin types as well as how food and nutrition can affect your skin. This is another beautiful production of a book that makes you feel beautiful by just flipping through its pages.

Beauty by Nature 

In this book herbalist Brigitte Mars shares her holistic approach to beauty, from diet to skincare. You can find useful information about natural health, diet, and beauty.  Brigitte’s recipes are very easy to make and they come with many helpful tips from her years of experience. By the end of the book there is a list of natural skincare suppliers. 

Earthly Bodies & Heavenly Hair

This book offers a long list of recipes for skin and hair products. There are also chapters dedicated for women, men, teens, babies, and the elderly with recipes designed to answer the specific needs of each gender and age group.  The last chapter of the book is more technical for people who want to understand in more depth, the definitions and techniques of the making of different beauty products. This book is designed for people who want to learn how to make their own skincare products.

The Cosmetic Cookbook 

by Lisa Sharon Belkin

I found this little book at my local herbal shop. I love this book and its simple design, like an old notebook. The book contains more than 50 beauty recipes that you can make from ingredients that are common in most kitchens.
