“If I could only choose one book to lead me from garden to kitchen to make my own body care products, this would be the one. This book is a keeper!”
―Marlene Adelmann, founder and director of The Herbal Academy
“This book is full of tested recipes and solid instructions. It has a little bit of everything. I love the practical tips for handling ingredients and safely storing your handmade products.”
―Anne-Marie Faiola, founder of SoapQueen.com, owner of Bramble Berry and author of Soap Crafting and Pure Soapmaking
“Beautifully arranged and photographed! Jan has finally taken her wonderful recipes and gorgeous photography and created a dreamy handcrafter’s guide. Her whimsical formulas combine play and purpose, making this a useful book to enjoy year-round.”
--Holly Bellebuono, director The Bellebuono School of Herbal Medicine and author of The Essential Herbal for Natural Health and The Healing Kitchen
“So many books provide recipes for the do-it-yourselfer to make at home, but few give you tips for how to craft your own recipes. I’m excited to make Jan’s recipes, but over-the-moon about the idea that her readers will be encouraged to source simple ingredients from the backyard and get creative in the kitchen to make natural bodycare products at home!”
-Dawn Combs, author of Heal Local and co-owner of Mockingbird Meadows
“Whether you have a small handful of dried calendula in the cupboard or a yard full of dandelions you want to put to good use, Jan Berry is your best friend. The deep connection she has with the plants she works is evident as she introduces you to their personalities and dreams up simple and creative ways to invite them into your home. ‘Nerdy’ doesn't quite describe this farm wife's enthusiasm for herbs―she's pure genius!”
- Rachael Brugger, managing editor at HobbyFarms.com and UrbanFarmOnline.com

I love the format of the book. It is very earthy feeling with type-writer style text and beautiful full-cover photographs of EVERY SINGLE RECIPE!!! I can just sit down and flip thru this book and get so motivated to try it myself.
Recipes are easy to follow. I was jazzed to learn about herbal infusions and home made soap. This book covers it in a simple way and opens up a new world for me of homemade, all natural products.
I love this book!!! Check out my photos of examples of this lovely 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 open wide and stay open from any spot in the book - which I think is such an attention to detail for a cookbook.
Skin care, salves & balm, body butters & lotion bars, creams & lotions, soaks & salts, bath melts & scrubs, lip care, hair care, handmade soaps, home remedies, household solutions, and pet care. There's a great intro to the supplies you'll be using as well as a thorough index. Any skill level will find something to enjoy in this book.
