Original Title

À fleur de pots Petit grimoire des cosmétiques maison des Trappeuses

Make all of your facial, body and hair care products with just 10 ingredients!

The production of body-care products is booming. Drawing on various kinds of responsible consumption like locavorism, zero waste and minimalism, do-it-yourself (or DIY) is the perfect answer for those seeking alternative solutions to industrial products.

In this book, the authors suggest a range of recipes for simple and straightforward body-care products. They demonstrate the amazing versatility of the chosen ingredients and guide readers toward self-sufficiency by proposing an array of recipes that they can then personalize. With just ten basic ingredients (oil, butter, wax, clay, baking soda, vinegar, etc.), herbalists in the making will be able to produce all of the body-care products their families need. On the menu: creams, butters, balms, exfoliants, cleansers, moisturizers, shampoos, shower gels and other products. A chapter on natural pharmacy products, with recipes for toothpaste, deodorant, protective balm, sun lotion, mosquito repellent, and muscle oil, completes the book.

Strong points
  • Making body-care products at home reduces your ecological footprint and saves money, which the new generation is very sensitive about.
  • This activity revives ancestral knowledge about the use of medicinal plants. Herbalism is back in fashion!
  • The friendly tone and shabby chic look that make the blog so welcoming are used in the book as well, with sketched illustrations and doodles for readers to enjoy.
  • 50 body-care recipes, including some with ingredients from the natural pharmacy and from reclaimed food.

Les Mauvaises Herbes

Les Mauvaises Herbes is a women's cooperative blog born of a desire to inspire readers, both men and women, to consume in a healthier way. Founded four years ago by Marie Beaupré, Mariane Gaudreau and Audrey Woods, this blog is the largest French-language eco-friendly web platform and a reference (over 2 million page views on Facebook, 80,000 on Instagram, and more than 700,000 visitors). Les Mauvaises Herbes appear at all responsible consumption events (Montreal Zero Waste Festival and Montreal Vegan Festival), and have developed several partnerships with eco-friendly organizations and businesses, like the David Suzuki Foundation.
