I loved the other two books a lot. When I bought this book, I was hesitant that there could possibly be much more that Janice could show me... Was I wrong? YES! Filled with loads of information and wonderful recipes and how-tos this book doesn't even reach the bookshelf, I keep it so handy! Great job Janice Cox!

I took this book out of the library and was pleasantly surprised! In the past I have found that beauty recipes can be challenging. With this book the ingredients are accesible and the recipes aren't difficult to make. I have started copying out recipes to try and will add this book to my christmas list!

A great book to have fun with - and learn some magic as well Oct. 20 2005
By Erin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is great in that it's easy to read, fun to skim through, and filled to the brim with useful recipes and ideas. From hair care, to skin, to lips, to homemade makeup and bath products, Cox covers just about all of it. Some herbs and natural remedies are covered with interesting folklore and background, such as the Hopi wedding Indian ritual.

The reasons it only earns an average rating, however, is due to several issues. For one thing, it really is just beauty from the kitchen. The vast majority of these recipes are all those you make at once and use only once. No actual 'cosmetic' recipes or long lasting toiletries. Lotions and creams are pretty basic and are actually old fashioned, such as with borax and beeswax, not highly recommended ways of making lotion. Very little on herbs are covered, mainly with veggies and fruits and stuff such as that.

The craft ideas are very basic but good ideas, such as creating a personalized hair brush. There are some great recipes for soaps but no beginner instructions or many safety precautions. The list is not long for these but she does cover just about everything in natural beauty, I just wish she covered it for more than just 'kitchen quick fixes'

It has everything July 10 2006
By Sharon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
You can get this book at your local library so if your interested check it out. It has everything from henna hair coloring to a dogwood toothbrush. I just want to buy the book and try every recipe out of the book after I seen it and looked it over in the library. I highly reccomend this book to anyone!

Beautiful without icky ingredients May 10 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have two other books from Janice Cox and I love them, too - great recipes that are actually do-able in your kitchen without a lot of hard-to-find ingredients, and they work! She includes some neat information/background with each recipe, and there are tips and hints tailored to the subject of the book scattered throughout the books (in this case, gardening). Highly recommended!
