This intriguing book is a master herbalist's take on natural personal care. Author Dina Falconi believes that health and vitality aren't about masking "flaws" with cosmetics, denying the aging process, or living up to some standardized and unattainable concept of beauty. In this book, she explores the perspective of beauty that involves working in partnership with nature. There are chapters devoted exclusively to women, and she also addresses the body care needs of men, teens, babies, and elders. Included are 450 innovative recipes that address all areas of the body, and entries on herbal first aid and aromatherapy.
