Jana's book is a feast for the eyes and beautifully written with clear recipes for making all sorts of potions and lotions at home. I've gifted this book to my daughters and will keep spreading the word.
I stumbled upon this book at B&N and am so very glad I did! I immediately felt a connection to it as I read the introduction letter, I too am allergic to synthetic perfumes. Got home, read it, became inspired, and have now made at least 10 products and they all are amazing. Can’t wait to make more! I am excited to say that I am chemical free from head to toe, and for the first time in more than 20 years am enjoying scents again. Thank you, Captain, for the inspiration and guidance, and for sharing it with us. My favorites: shampoo + rinse + conditioner combo/process (my hair has never been so gorgeous, it’s honestly amazing, friends are jealous), the deodorant, and that amazing face oil.
I adore this book. So well written, informative and clever. I find myself opening it up often to reference. Also, the photography is gorgeous. I highly recommend this book it truly made me think about the products I purchase.
I loved this book. Not only was it very informative, but the recipes included are easy to make with ingredients that are easy to find. I loved how the book laid out and the photography was amazing. Great book overall.
This book is so cool I started making my own products and they are amazing
