Comments: I thought this book would bring me practical recipes and formulary for combining herbs, essential oils, and other botanicals in handcrafted bath products. It did none of those things. It does chronicle the ideas of a woman who presented healing baths themselves as a business, but incorporates far too much synergistic and energy healing that is unrelated to the bath. It includes emphasis on personality and philosophy categories, but no real practical natural bath and healing remedies. It also focuses a lot of attention on crystal therapy - which gems provide healing energy when placed in the water and so on, which is great if you are interested in crystal healing itself with or without the bathing ritual. I hope other readers get more out of this than I did.
