taking expensive trips to professional spas. In Asian Secrets of Health, Beauty,
and Relaxation, Sophie Benge, an Asian beauty expert, supplies all the tools for
experiencing luxurious Asian beauty treatments at home, including inexpensive,
easy-to-follow recipes for soothing facials, relaxing aromatherapy baths,
