Ditch store-bought products and skip hard-to-pronounce, synthetic ingredients and chemicals with this accessible guide to creating your own natural homemade health and body care products for your family. This carefully curated collection from Ashley English features tried-and-true recipes that she and her family turn to again and again. Using equipment and ingredients that are easy to find and might already be in your home, tackle a dry scalp with the help of a rosemary and apple-cider vinegar infusion, soothe sunburns with a simple three-ingredient aloe vera mixture, and create a stress-relieving tincture made from fresh lemon balm and roses. In addition to a wide array of homemade products, there will be information on where to source high-quality materials, safety tips, and the benefits of her chosen ingredients. You'll soon fill your cabinet with a collection of DIY beauty, health, and wellness products that are as useful as they are simple to make.
