Brigitte Mars is your classic hippie lady, she's lived the lifestyle, and still does. She is the lady in her neighborhood poking around the garden and yard picking useful weeds and other natural plants, grasses, herbs and flowers that are growing out of the side walk or in the back alley. She is a Master Herbalist so she knows her stuff. Brigitte Mars is also the mother of Rainbeau Mars, the beautiful instructor of the Rayoka video in one of my other reviews!
Since she was a young single mother in the flower power days Brigitte has been making all her own tinctures, beauty products and ointments for herself and her young daughters. One look at this woman, her amazing long beautiful hair and flawless complexion is enough to make you a believer in all thing natural.
The pages in the book are made of recycled material, and the ink is vegetable based. You will find recipes for all hair colors to make them brighter, lighter, glossier and softer. Recipes for natural deoderants, shampoos, flower waters, and exfoliants. In the glossary you will find information on the benefits, and side effects if any on different ingredients from nature, besides herbs and so on, you will also find info in here you will also get info on essential oils, how to mix different one, the best carrier oils, and warnings. This book is nice, the recipes are all quite simple, some are also kinda boring, it is a book i prefer for the info on oils and herbs rather than the recipes, there are some other books that have better recipes, but not the extent of info on what can be mixed together and so on like this book though, when im not sure about the safety of oils or herbs when certain ones are put together i turn to this book. Great info!!
