I have mixed feelings about this book. Originally I was going to rate it three stars, but after starting my review, I realized that there are a lot of recipes that I like so I decided to rate it four stars.

While I don't consider myself an expert, I do have some experience making organic skin, lip, & pet products both for my family/farm/pets & as a small part of business income for my farm. Mainly I stick with methods that do not use water as they are much safer & I feel they deliver

I am a long time follower of Jan's blog The Nerdy Farm Wife so I was quick to preorder this knowing how great her recipes are. She is a concise writer of recipes, with easy to follow instructions. I am cautious in trying new things and her straightforward approach got me making some salves and lotion bars. I'm excited to try some new things in this book.
About the book itself:
The photos are gorgeous. The spine of this book is unique, a combination of glue and string bound that allows for it to

I have been following Jan's blog The Nerdy Farm Wife for a while now and was excited when I saw that she had written a book. It is full of projects for making skin and hair care products, household cleaners, health remedies, and pet care products, using natural ingredients and common herbs, flowers and oils. I have made several projects from the book and am thrilled with how they turned out. The book is perfect for the beginner with easy-to-follow directions and lots of lovely pictures. I would ...more

There are some really cool recipes in here, and I love that Berry offers so many customizable options. There are some harder-to-find ingredients (emulsifying wax NF) and a few more entailed techniques (soapmaking) mixed in with your usual olive oil, coconut oil, and double-boiler recipes. Quite a few unusual herbal combinations, too. Definitely worth a gander if you're in to this sort of thing.

Great book. checked out from library so I'll have to check it out again when I get time to make some of these items or purchase it down the road.

I saw this book on the library shelf and impulsively checked it out. The explanations were simple and concise, most recipes seemed easy enough for a novice, and the photos were lovely.

Alas, I don't think I am going to do much with the information from this book right now. In a different life I think I could be an herbalist, but right now there are too many demands on my time and too many other things I prefer to do with plants (namely grow, cook, and eat them.) The idea of making my own soap

The book offers easy homemade recipes using herbs and flowers that are often found in your back yard. I've made useful, healing scrubs, salves, lip balms, and soaps with success using Ms. Berry's instructions. She obviously has the knowledge, skill, and experience that, to me, makes this a professional, easy to read, and effective guide to herbal remedies and cosmetics.

I will be checking this book out of the library again. Or at least until I can find it at a price I can afford. One of those books I want to add to my personal library. Love the simple and easy to follow instructions. I look forward to making some of the lotions and soaps for myself. I will be checking this book out of the library again. Or at least until I have time to find it in a good used condition at a reasonable price.

Received this book as a Christmas gift. So many great herbal recipes that I want to try. The book contains detailed instructions, illustrations, substitutions and tips. A great reference book addition to my herbal book collection.

If I had time to infuse dozens of flowers and herbs in a variety of oils this would be the book for me. The recipes are intriguing and sound amazing, but who has time for all the infusing!

This is what I was looking for! Pictures. Recipes. Descriptions. Helpful hints. Substitutions. Very thorough. Great if you are wanting natural ways to clean, or make your own cosmetics!
