"Green Beauty Recipes" is a timely book since many of us are "going green." We no longer want to use harmful chemicals or accept using animals for testing products. Using products that can be found in our own home, with the addition of essential oils or natural preservatives, will not only nourish our body, but help keep our planet clean. I commend Julie Gabriel on making this book available to us and I encourage everyone to consider having "Green Beauty." --Irene Watson, Reader Views, September 2010
Green Beauty Recipes is the second book by author Julie Gabriel. An extension of her first book, The Green Beauty Guide, Green Beauty Recipes is an indispensable collection of not only recipes, but also instructions, explanations and helpful hints for creating your own collection of skin care, hair care and body care products. Julie gives everyone the confidence to get in the kitchen and create their own beauty! Perfect as a gift for just about any woman.
We love this book and read every word cover to cover. How we wish it had images of some of the finished recipes, however. It's fun to create products and get that feeling of accomplishment that goes along with it. It's a book that won't hide on our bookshelf because we'll be too busy finding recipes that work best with our skin. It has a top spot on our holiday gift list this year. --Jen Adkins, About.com: Skincare, October 2010
