“Oh, the pure joy and magic of a gorgeously illustrated and curated herbal recipe book! It is with a glorious recipe book such as this, that reinforces my (often misunderstood) habitual need to save every glass jar I’ve ever touched for herbal infusions. I love making my own herbal body care items, and once you’ve started, you’ll know how incredibly easy, fun and *super inexpensive* high quality, skin nourishing, plant based body care can be. This Botanical Skin Care Recipe Book from Herbal Academy is by far the most thorough topical herbal preparations book I’ve ever owned, and I’m diving in deep this month, making everything from tinted lip balms, to dry shampoo, to infused oils, and whipped body butters.”
– Lindsay Kluge, MS, CNS, LDN, Ginger Tonic Botanicals

“Besides the recipes, the gorgeous illustrations make this book a work of art. I love flipping through the pages just for fun. It’s a feast for the eyes, for sure!”
– Stacy Karen, No Fuss Natural

“I wanted to find a way to reduce the amount of toxins and plastic bottles on a daily basis via personal care products. This book is exactly what I’ve been looking for. There’s lots of recipes for hair, skin and body. The thing I have made is a simple strawberry scrub and it was easy and loved it. I’m ready to ditch the drug store toiletries. And if I can make them, even better!”
– Zerowaste.Japan

“I received the recipe book for this Botanical Skin Care Course and am so glad I did! Not only did it save my hours of transcribing recipes from the course but the book itself is so beautifully put together. Each page is illustrated with herbs and it really is a visual feast!
– Becky O Cole

“The Botanical Skin Care Recipe Book by Herbal Academy is 105% the answer to one of my heartfelt prayers. A few years ago I indeed dreamt that some girlfriends and I might put together a workshop or maybe even a book, filled with recipes and wisdom on making our own natural skin care remedies, utilizing with care and consciousness the abundant offerings of our beloved pachamama. ⁣⁣⁠Lo and behold this book landed on my doorstep and I couldn’t be happier to add it to my zero waste tool kit! Filled with recipes for all those things I normally head to my local health food shop for, it inspires a life lived in harmony with the offerings of the earth, a life lived sweetly and slowly.”
– Milk and Seed

“I was once again busy doing some of my @herbalacademy studies. You might already know that I’m currently doing their Botanical Skin Care course. It’s been so fascinating to learn more about the many ways herbs can benefit the skin both inside and out. The course also gives me a detailed foundation into skin health. It’s so much more than I ever imagined!

They also have this amazing recipe book to accompany the course or to buy separately. It’s filled with great DIY’s, ranging from Bath Salts to Cosmetics. The Herbal Academy #gifted these to me which I’m so grateful for because it was one of my big wishes to learn more and to do this course! So far I’ve been enjoying every single bit of it and can only recommend it!”
– Vivi, @wandering_wild_home

“Recently, I had the opportunity to work with this beautifully thought out, well written book from @herbalacademy and I cannot explain how grateful I am to have had this chance. This book is extremely affordable and informative with simple recipes that go such a long way. Not to mention, the pages are absolutely beautiful (swipe to see for yourself!). Whether you are new to the herbal game or have been in it for the long haul, this is a staple for your botanical recipe book collection. You can even see where I’ve marked multiple pages… I’ll forever cherish mine and continue to use until the pages wear out”
– Wild Nocturna

“Being enrolled in this course + learning herbs and plants has given me the opportunity to create my own products and avoid a lot of unnecessary packaging and questionable ingredients in traditional store bought products. I can create products in the comfort of my own home and know that everything that goes into it can be used + returned to the earth without causing harm to myself, my family or the planet.”
