Plant-Powered Beauty: The Essential Guide to Using Natural Ingredients for Health, Wellness, and Personal Skincare, by Amy Galper and Christina Daigneault

Three of our experts recommended Plant-Powered Beauty, a book for the DIY-er who wants to mix up skin, hair, and aromatherapy salves at home. It was co-authored by New York Institute of Aromatherapy founder Amy Galper, whom Foley calls “the foremost expert on essential oils” and who Doft considers a personal mentor for her own skin care line. The book contains over 50 DIY recipes, breaking down the benefits of each botanical ingredient involved. And there’s nothing too earthy that you’d actually have to scavenge for: “The easy-to-make recipes contain many ingredients that are probably already in your kitchen,” Blankenship says. “It is a celebration of the beauty and efficacy of plant-based ingredients.”
