Another great ARC from Netgalley, Stephanie L. Tourles and Storey Publishing With sensitive skin I'm always looking for something to enhance my skin without being too harsh but I always come up short when scouring the shelves for brands that are both eco-friendly and useful so a couple of years ago I started experimenting with essential oils and raw ingredients to get the result I really wanted. Needless to say, I've read my fair share of herbal beauty remedies and recipes over the years but none quite like this one. Outlining everything from small 2-step mixtures to more in-depth concoctions this book has it all and if you're in need of some materials you can find them reasonably priced on Amazon or smaller boutique shops. I recommend trying new things when it comes to your skin and sometimes the best elixirs are those we make from home with the guidance of a pro!

I have been a fan of Ms. Tourles for a long time. I've been receiving her newsletter for several years. They are full of healthy recipes to feed the body as well as DIY skincare recipes. It's called "Hello Glow" I highly recommend it. This book is perfect, I've been a fan of Aromatherapy for years, I took a class back in the late 80's. I remember coming home with a Hummingbird diffuser, it was the only type they made back then. There wasn't a lot of information out regarding Essential oils at that time but I was hooked. One of the many things I like about this book is the way she described each oil its benefits, plus this is what I learned in my class I took, the benefits of dry brushing, many people have never heard of that and believe me it works. I dry brush every time before I get into the shower. It makes a huge difference for sure. Not only does your skin feel better it helps with your circulation and gives your body a boost as well. I've made several skin care products and they seem expensive to get all the ingredients you need but they are cost-effective in the long run. But once you have all the things you need you'll have them on hand a little bit goes a long way. One of the recipes that I use is her Lemon Refresher Toner, it's great. Another one I've made and use is her Rosy Red Balancing Clay Mask. These are both inexpensive to make and during the summer the Lemon Refresher Toner is a great spritzer to use during the day. I love her facial steams as well, I save all my rose's petals so I can use them in my steams or other products. I dry them out and they keep for a long time. I do the same with my lavender blooms as well. Needless to say, this is a great book, I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for an alternative to high-cost skin care. I'll be purchasing this book for several people for Christmas, it's fun to make your own skin care items. I also recommend signing up for her great newsletter, she doesn't push high priced oils on you like some other books I've read. She has a list of Resources in the back of the book her book that is beneficial and also a list of recommended reading. Disclosure: I would like to thank the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this e-galley in exchange for my honest opinion, the opinions I expressed above are my own.
