The books starts with explaining the author's "skin personalities", not just normal, dry and oily, then goes into the recommended essential oils, vegetal oils and herbal extracts that are best for each skin personalities.
This is also the first book I have come across that talks about good skin starts from the inside. It discusses how to detox the body, what foods, herbs and vitamins are best for clarifying the skin.
I usually go through my herbal book highlighting them for future reference. I can't bring myself to put one mark in this book. It is so beautifully designed and the photos are gorgeous. The author should be very proud.
I would have liked to have more information on shelf life with some of the recipes. Some do say for immediate use, and some mention to store in the refrigerator, but I would liked to have seen EVERY recipe note how long a shelf life it has, in or out of the frig.
Also would like to see more recipes that have a shelf life and are not just single use.
All in all a lovely useful book.
