Fabulous Book

Last week, I ordered a wonderful book from Amazon.com and it just arrived this afternoon. Very timely, don't you think? :wink: It's called "Organic Body Care Recipes" by Stephanie Tourles. I'll include the link:

http://www.amazon.com/Organic-Body-Recipes-Stephanie-Tourles/dp/1580176763/ref=pd_bbs_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1217359178&sr=8-1

I've just skimmed through it, but it looks great! Not only is it filled with simple homemade recipes for hair, face, body, and nail care. It has a good ingredient dictionary and resource guide to order organic ingredients as well as supplies.

I don't have time to make any of the recipes before we leave for the beach. :cry: You can bet I'll be trying some when I return. :toothy7:

    Ooh, sounds interesting! I hope there are recipes for rinse-out conditioners. I would love to find something that works that I can make myself. I don't mind making some of my hair products if they work well AND they don't require tons of time or ingredients.

    I bought this book about 4 months ago. Its full of great natural recipes. I have done several of the face recipes. Very informative section toward front of book about natural ingredients such as essential oils, herbs, clay, etc., listing each one and describing the properties and uses for each one.

    pigreyhound - I skimmed through the hair chapter and didn't find any rinse-out condish recipes. She does have a few DT's, natural shampoos and scalp treatments, and hair rinses. We still need to work on a rinse-out recipe. Perhaps that is an idea for a new thread.

    susancnw - What other books do you have from her? I would be interested in other recommendations.

    scarriecarrie - Which facial recipes have you tried and which was your favorite?

    swirlygirl - I plan on making a few recipes when we get back. I will definitely post my results. :)

    I like the cornmeal & honey scrub, smooth as silk oatmeal cleanser, almond meal cleanser (I used jojoba meal), honey massage mask. I liked all of them, especially the honey ones. I hope you find some favorites of your own also!!!!! :)

    Thank you thank you THANK YOU, misspam, for bringing this book to our attention. I just received my copy and can hardly wait to start trying these recipes. I love that there is a list of suppliers in the back, it makes finding some of the more specialized ingredients so easy.

    Has anyone else here tried more of the recipes? How are they working out?
