As there are 4 books in this series I am having trouble fitting the descriptions into my format – so I’ll just post one description– as a sample of the type of chemical free products you can make from these books.
From The Art of Natural Beauty:
From Avocado and Rose Face Oil to Salt and Macadamia Hair Spritz, this handy little guide is the perfect companion for anyone who wants to save money (and the planet) by ditching chemical-filled, mass-produced beauty products and making their own natural ones at home. Rebecca Sullivan has researched and tested a whole range of treats and treatments for your face, body and hair, and even your teeth.
Keep skin touchably soft with Chocolate Orange Body Butter, and create your own make up palette using petal powders. With Lavender Lip Scrub and Elderflower Night Cream, the ideas in this book will inspire you to overhaul your entire cosmetic collection and embrace the art of natural beauty.
I love this how to series of natural products/recipes, the books are perfect for anyone who is trying to detox their home, live a chemical free life and save money.

The ingredients used in these books are not difficult to source – many you will find in your kitchen pantry or garden and Rebecca provides a section at the back of each book called “resources” where she lists suppliers – by region.
Over the next few days I will post a couple of the recipes that I am keen to try. Easy to make, cheap and chemical free- what’s not to love?
