fabulous book!

This book is amazing! Clear layout, with chapters detailing all the hows and whys of ingredients used so there is no need to go hunting in other books to find why a certain thing is used. Calls often for herbs combined with essential oils, but unlike the author's other (newer) book on healing recipes, Organic Body Care Recipes works out to provide very cost effective solutions with not-too-rare ingredients. I have already shown this to several friends who have used the skin assessments to find out the recipes best for them, and been able to back away from more expensive chemical-laden products. In particular, two insect repellant recipes are included, a body oil and a salve, and both work like a dream -- I get eaten alive without significant protection, and while 4 Thieves + garlic vinegar works well, we call it "pickle juice" because it smells so bad! Pleasantly fragranced alternatives are great. Also, the homemade essential oils shampoo really works for rebalancing sebum -- I now only need to cleanse my hair once in 5 days, which is much better for me. I will be hosting a ladies' spa party next month, laying out ingredients and letting the girls all put together recipes from the book, so keep this in stock as you might get a few new orders! :)

My new cosmetic line

My best friends gave me a gift certificate for Bulk Herb Store, knowing I loved their products. I settled on a book, one I had been eying for some time! This book has been instrumental in the development of our new, natural, homemade cosmetic line we are about to launch! Thanks to the Organic Body Care Recipes book!

I have already started making some stuff for my hair & use simple coconut oil for my moisturizer at night. This book sounds fantastic to keep learning more.

I love your herbs! And I have never tasted better Peppermint. I've started mixing teas for friends, and they love your herbs, too. :) My kids (almost 3 and almost 2) caught a cold at church a few weeks ago, and I've been giving them plain peppermint tea to help clear their noses when they get too stuffy. They think it's the best treat, and love it. My daughter especially loves the Sleepy Time Tea with Chamomile flowers. It's become our nightly 'thing' to have a cup of tea and read a bedtime or Bible story. Also, the Nutritional Herbology book has been of great help to me, and since I've started using Red Raspberry in most of my teas, my not-so-fun monthly female cramps have almost disappeared! Thank you so much for offering your herbs at such wonderful prices. I can't find better prices anywhere.
