The Herbal Home Spa: Naturally Refreshing Wraps, Rubs, Lotions, Masks, Oils, and Scrubs

by Greta Breedlove (Author)

Editorial Reviews

From Booklist
Slices of cucumbers to refresh tired eyes, olive oil to restore hair, a lemon
rinse to lighten hair color. By no means is natural body care alien to most
people, yet many of herbalist Breedlove's more than 110 recipes, remedies, and
ideas will enlighten and inspire. In fact, she provides some rather unusual
alternatives for most if not all of the commercial skin, hair, and other care
products. Need to darken hair? Try a mix of black walnut hulls, grape leaves,
wine, and water. Corns a real annoyance? Bandage roasted garlic cloves around
the offending toes. Suffering from itchiness due to poison ivy or dry skin?
There's the cucumber pizza solution, slathering the entire body with this green
vegetable. In addition to providing tons of tips about pampering, she also walks
readers through the maze of herbs and natural ingredients, from acacia flowers
to zinc oxide paste. A 101 course in soothing and relaxing. Barbara Jacobs
