Since the days of Cleopatra, we have been in search of the "Spa Experience" - a mystical place of white fluffy towels, populated by the finest of facial masks and lotions. But this vision of relaxation can come with a hefty price tag. That is about to change.

With lavish photos throughout, The Herb Lover’s Spa Book gives the reader simple steps for growing and preparing herbs for the home spa…aromatherapy oils, lotions, tub teas, masks, scrubs, sachets, travel bath mixes, and more. It has never been easier to enjoy the spa ambiance and let the stress of the day melt away.
