About this product Synopsis Dorie Byers, a registered nurse, master gardener and her Every day, television and magazine ads tell us that beautiful skin and hair are available only through the use of expensive brand-name products. But the fact is that you can attain a radiant, healthy appearance by using products made inexpensively at home.
That's what Natural Beauty Basics is all about. First, author Dorie Byers guides you to the equipment and ingredients you'll need to make your own products.
She then presents easy-to-follow recipes for over hand creams, body powders, shampoos, soaps, and more-products that are effective, all-natural, and allergen-free. None of these ingredients by themselves are expensive. Also, some of these ingredients are not necessarily helpful in certain situations. None of these ingredients alone are expensive, but when the manufacturer figures in the cost of packaging, advertising, other additives, and their overhead, the price increases significantly. Now go to a natural foods store and read the labels on body care prod-ucts. The ingredients listed on the labels are more understandable in most cases, but the price remains high.
For the price of the tube of face mask, a container of clay and a package of dried herbs could be purchased to make face masks enough to easily last six months, and still have money left over. If the herb I chose to use for the infusion was one that grows in my garden, then the total price would decrease even more. Making your own natural cosmetics is not only economical, but can be beneficial to your skin. You can substitute one natural ingredient for another to meet your individual requirements and preferences. The results can be as satisfactory as those achieved from commercial products.

There are no artificial ingredients, so the mystery of what is being put on your skin and absorbed into your body is absent. It can be a very satisfying activity to make your own body care products. Most recipes are as simple a making cookies from scratch. I feel a sense of contentment when seeing little jars and pots of creams and powders that I make sitting on the bathroom shelf. It makes me feel good to have control over another step toward a healthier life. I know exactly what is in each container, that the products are freshly made, and what it cost to make each one.
When allergies and sensitivities to chemical additives are a problem, the recipes in this book provide a healthy alternative.

Homemade body care products provide a humane alternative to com-mercial ones, alleviating the concerns of vegetarians and animal lovers among my readers. None of the ingredients contain animal by-products, nor have any of the recipes been tested on animals. Making your own cosmetics is versatile. Products can be individualized for yourself, your family, and friends regardless of gender or age.
