Over the last month or so, the has had a strong focus on homemade and DIY projects related to health and beauty.

We started with a post sharing some products that can be made with essential oils, then we shared some homemade foot scrub recipes, then some DIY body butters and, most recently, we rounded up ten fantastic homemade and DIY beauty gifts that you can make for your Mom this Mother’s Day.

Making beauty products is a great way to have fun, to be more frugal, to be more environmentally friendly (so many harsh chemicals in store bought products!) and to get your kids involved.

Below I share seven of my favorite homemade and DIY beauty books so you’ll never be short of recipes.

    My two favorite’s that I have are:
    ‘Rosemary Gladstar’s Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health’ and ‘Botanical Body Care’ by Karin C. Uphoff. Rosemary Gladstar has a wonderful recipe for Rosemary’s Perfect Cream. You can see a youtube video on it.

  3. Superb post. All the seven tips are par excellence. Going organic for the sake of skin is really worth it. Please give more details on the same. Looking forward to get it soon.
