DK has put together a selection of DK books that will inspire you to start something fresh in 2015 whether it is a craft project,  mastering a new skill or enriching an existing talent. Trust these DK books to explain what you need to know and provide the visual inspiration.

I’ve been seeing a lot of talk recently about Essential Oils and I am interested in learning more about natural alternatives to medicine, beauty products and more.  What I’ve been looking for though is non-branded information about it as most of what I see floating around is also pushing sales. 

Looking through DK’s Start Fresh Boutique I came across an interesting title, Natural Beauty, and it really caught my eye.

From the review of this book on Natural Beauty, I think it would really help us make some of our own natural products. I think this would be a useful craft to learn. Thank you for telling us about it.
