Swedish Indian spa

What really got me in to experimenting with homemade skin care products was a book called “Lisens örtspa” (Prisma, 2008) by Lisen Sundgren. The title means “Lisen’s Herbal Spa”, but unfortunately it hasn’t been translated yet (you can find it in finnish though, entitled “Ihana kotikylpylä”).

Just a few weeks back, Lisen released her second book – “Lisens indiska spa” (Prisma, 2010), that includes homemade recipes inspired by the Ayurvedic tradition. If you happen to understand swedish, I warmly recommend both of these books.
