Now you can create your own beauty essentials with these pampering recipes for face, body and hair. From a neroli hydrating spritz to a macadamia and jojoba moisturiser, a mango and lime body butter to lemon and tea tree foot balm, bergamot and grapefruit wake-up wash to cocoa butter lip balm – the hardest part is choosing which of the pampering projects to try first!
Each recipe has clear step-by-step photographs to guide you, comprehensive lists of equipment and ingredients, as well as easy-to-follow instructions. With numerous variations to try, you’ll wonder why you ever bought beauty products in the first place!’
