Home-Made Herbal Cosmetics?
by Dr. S. Suresh Babu

The fact that natural herbal products have a definite qualitative edge over chemical-based cosmetics is today universally acknowledged.

But then is every herbal beauty solution as effective as it claims to be?

In fact, a lot depends on the extent of knowledge and research gone into its preparation.

Here is one such work that brings you herbal solutions that work, and work beautifully.

Backed by years of research and painstaking effort, it offers comprehensive solutions — from top to toe.

For example:

*Castor oil makes an excellent sunscreen — and mixed with a few drops of jasmine oil it becomes a herbal hair conditioner.

*White wax mixed with almond oil, rose water and sodium benzoate proves effective for dry skin.

*A mix of pineapple and yoghurt makes an ideal nail soak.

*Mineral-rich oatmeal soak has excellent moisturising and softening properties, and serves as a soothing foot-bath...

the book offers many such formulae and much more.

In addition, there are separate sections devoted to-

*Herbal remedies for common ailments (for instance, the milky juice of papaya softens corns, and cotton seed oil applied daily clears spots on the face).

*And a complete glossary describing the essential qualities and properties of herbal ingredients.
