Discover how easy it is to harness the natural goodness of plants with over 50 homemade beauty recipes that can help you feel better, look better and have a healthy year! Most of us use lipbalms, body scrubs and cosmetics every day, but these can be full of chemicals and harmful to your skin and health. This book teaches you how to confidently make your own homemade remedies and natural beauty products using plants and herbs that are readily available, and often free, such as nettles, dandelions, herbs and hawthorn berries. Our gardens and hedgerows contain much of what we need to keep mild ailments at bay and it's fun giving it a go - instead of weeding the dandelions in your lawn, pick them and use them! Or plant marigolds, not just for their cheerful colour, but to make wonderful skin oils. With a helpful 'Season by Season' layout, you will know at a glance what to gather and when to gather it. Inside, you'll find homemade beauty recipes, including camomile bath soak, chocolate lip gloss, lavender bath bombs, mint lip balm, and more! Plus, plenty of healthy recipes for homemade remedies, from treatments for colds and overindulgence, to witch hazel spot gel, burn salves, skin-toning ointments, and even hay fever relief. This book is a source book for mind, body and soul, as well as a testament to the natural power and beauty of herbs. Get out there, keep your eyes open and discover the many widely available plants that you can use for your health - with the added bonus that they're not costing you anything. With Treat Yourself Natural you will feel empowered to explore the wonderful world of making healthy remedies and homemade beauty products, either for yourself or as gifts for your friends and family; after all, there is nothing nicer than a lovingly made present. "This book is full of brilliant ideas for things to make for yourself, or as wonderful gifts. Year in year out this will be an invaluable resource for a rainy day or a country walk, written by someone who really knows what she is talking about as well as living the same busy life as you and I." From the foreword, by Kirstie Allsopp

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The Best fun and the best present ever!"
Kirstie Allsopp

'Sof McVeigh, the homoeopath behind the Homemade Company, has worked hard at the relationship between what is fun for children to make and what their friends and family may wish to receive. Last year my boys made her lavender bath bombs, and packaged them up as aunt-pleasing presents with the biodegradable gift bags, ribbons and labels also supplied. New this year is a chocolate-flavoured lip-balm kit and one for making cuticle balm. As both require a degree of heating and pouring, children will need supervision, but the kits really do work, and the pots of balms make lovely presents.'
Daisy Bridgewater in The Telegraph magazine.

"This great lip balm kit will keep young girls entertained for hours"
Susie Forbes
in her Easy Living editorial.

"This beautifully packaged kit contains everything you need to make your own balm"
Clemmie Hambro in The Lady magazine.

Angels and Urchins children's magazine: "We love the make-your own bath bombs and lip balms. Ideal sleep over activities and double up as a perfect going home present."
