At more than 150 pages, EcoBeauty: Scrubs, Rubs, Masks and Bath Bombs for You and Your Friends by Janice and Lauren Cox and published by Ten Speed Press, is a great introduction to making your own beauty products at home with natural ingredients. The book is broken into six sections: For the Face, For the Body, For the Mouth, For the Hands and Feet, For the Hair and Gift Giving, each containing 10-27 recipes or projects. There is also an introductory section that covers some of the common ingredients and their beneficial properties as well as sources for them and containers. The final chapter of the book is dedicated to a mix of recipes especially fun for gift giving (i.e. bath bombs and bath salts) and projects that complement the recipes in the book to help make a well-rounded homemade beauty gift. As part of the title suggests there is also some emphasis on the eco-friendliness of making your own beauty products, from reducing chemicals in our waste water to reusing containers of various shapes and forms.
