When it comes to keeping our skin happy and glowing, the more natural we keep our regime the better. And you don’t need to spend a fortune stocking up on products with green ingredients – you can make a few treatments yourself, using ingredients you can find in your very own garden.
The Holistic Gardener: Beauty Treatments from the Garden allows you to look outside or in your cupboard at ingredients you might never have thought of using in your beauty regime. From natural shampoo to home-grown teeth whitener, cures for common ailments to tips on healthy nourishment, this book has it all.
Demonstrating the advantages and simplicity of natural beauty treatments, Fiann Ó Nualláin brings his singular knowledge of plants’ properties to bear in showing us that there are easy, healthy and cheap ways to have an all-over glow of well-being.
By using the resources around us and understanding the value of what we grow, Fiann shows how combining plants with the right ingredients can make us healthier, wealthier and wiser about our skin and bodies.
