Creative, natural, simple... (5 stars)
Though quite geared toward teens, I found Botanical Beauty to be a fantastic resource for anyone who would like to start making their own spa goodies. Mostly simple to make and with ingredients that most of us have around the house already or that can easily be sourced on Amazon these recipes are sure to be a hit with anyone who likes to be pampered.
Planning a spa birthday party for a group of tweens? This book has perfect projects for making and taking home. Want to create personalized gifts for the holidays? Even guys can enjoy many of these. Sick of Pinterest fails when you try to make natural body products? Then you need these tried and tested recipes with great tips and tricks.
I very much recommend this one!
