Well hello there! I'm Shannon Buck, self-proclaimed queen of everything au naturel, organic, and eco-friendly. If your skin's going to be your body's biggest billboard, you'd best be choosy about what you're plastering all over it. Just as I prefer my food labels to be as legible as a toddler's picture book, I'm a bit of a fusspot when it comes to the contents of my skincare and beauty potions. 

These days, scoring plant-based beauty and skincare goodies is as easy as finding a hipster at an artisan coffee shop. And let me tell you, they come packed with benefits that are as attractive as a shirtless Hemsworth brother, minus the scary ingredients and preservatives that sound like they should be in a horror movie. 

Believe it or not, these green warriors not only do the job but also smell like a walk through a blossom-filled meadow, unlike their synthetic, chemical-packed cousins that somehow still get invited to the party. So why not take a walk on the wild (and natural) side with me? It's pretty fabulous over here!

Drumroll, please! It's time to unveil my shiny new book, '200 Tips, Techniques, and Recipes for Natural Beauty.' Yes, folks, it’s hotter off the press than a pancake on a griddle and ready for purchase. This beauty bible is your golden ticket to the magical world of DIY organic beauty products. 

Imagine brewing up a storm in your kitchen, whipping up potions and lotions with holistic ingredients so natural, they'd make Mother Nature blush! We're talking herbs, flowers, and everything in between. Unleash the power of conditioning carrier oils, butters so sumptuous they could rival a French patisserie, and floral extracts so aromatic they'll transport you to a blooming meadow. Plus, there are recipes that go beyond the surface, offering you herbal extracts and essential oils that are as therapeutic as a spa day!

With 'Fresh-Picked Beauty,' I'm on a mission to turn your kitchen into a beauty lab, where you'll be crafting all-natural products that'll make you glow from head to toe. Learn about the wonders of carrier oils, the luxury of butters, the fragrance of floral waters, and the healing power of herbal extracts and essential oils. 

Clear instructions and step-by-step photos will guide you, making the process as smooth as your skin will be after using these recipes. Embark on a beauty journey that covers your hair, face, body, hands, and feet. Plus, learn to concoct your signature scent using essential oils.
