Shhh… can I tell you a secret? It’s one that she doesn’t even know herself. But, Jan from Nerdy Farm Wife is the person I would most like to be like if I grow up.
I love her blog, and all the amazing things she does with flowers, herbs and plants all around her. As a matter of fact, it was from reading her blog that led me into the world of herbalism. Oh, yes, Jan. Because of you.
I have learned so much from her in the last 3 years, from different soap recipes, lotions, scrubs.
There are so many freebie ebooks that I was able to get from her over various months as part of being a subscriber.
I often wondered why she didn’t write a print book. She has a unique talent of making all things beautiful and wonderful, and easy to make for yourself. Alas, now she has! This is THE book, y’all.

101 Easy Homemade Products for Your Skin, Health & Home is the accumulation of all the years she has spent on her blog, her ebooks, pictures and growing in her knowledge of all things plant.
It is full color, full of beautiful pictures of easy to make beauty and skin care products. The recipes she has created for this book use natural ingredients and you may have most of them already in your home.
From calendula to rose petals, lavender to orange essential oils, in just about an hour, you can create your OWN lotions, soaps, and bars for yourself or as gifts. (Let’s think Mother’s Day here).
What I Liked about This Book
Besides the fact that she is “scientifically” correct in the different usages of herbs, is that she explains things very thoroughly.
This book would make an ideal addition to any home crafter, herbalist or diy’er library. A great Mother’s Day gift, hostess gift, or just a “because I love ME” gift. You can grab this awesome book from here.
