The Home Apothecary: Cold Spring Apothecary's Cookbook of Hand-Crafted Remedies and Recipes for the Hair, Skin, Body, & Home

An apothecary is a skilled craftsperson who compounds herbal mixtures that enhance health and beauty. Put aside the modern world of tricky marketing and harmful chemicals and create your own apothecary solutions. They’re fresh, safe, effective, and can save you money—and many are made from the wholesome ingredients already in your kitchen and garden.

Inside you’ll find:
  • Skin Care 101, including how to make cleansers, scrubs, creams and lotions, tonics, and toners for oily, dry, sensitive, or combination skin—along with acne treatments, natural sunscreen, lip balm, and more
  • Body care recipes for homemade body scrubs, massage oil, body powder, and toothpaste
  • Remedies for what ails you, including healing cough syrups, compresses, teas, and tinctures
  • Hair care recipes for dry, normal, or oily hair—add shine, clear up dandruff, and control thinning and volume
