After attending a natural product workshop during her time as an aromatherapy student, Nicole Seabrook became interested in creating her own, personalized natural products. Her mission to discontinue using chemical products in her home in favor of 'all things natural' proved a tough challenge at first as it was difficult to source certain ingredients in South Africa. However, as consumers become more aware of the toxic chemicals present in everyday household cleaning agents and cosmetics, and are keen to 'go green', these ingredients are now readily available at specialty health shops and pharmacies. Nicole also saw the need for a book on how to make these products at home in a practical, affordable and easy way.

Soaps, Bubbles & Scrubs comprises more than 100 simple, easy-to-follow recipes that Nicole has developed for use on your body and in your home. There are chapters on facial products, hair products, treatments for hands and feet, as well as products for babies and children, and for use during pregnancy. She also shows you how to make glycerin and cold-process soaps, and discusses the various essential oils and their uses. QR (quick response) codes have been included to provide links to videos on the Internet demonstrating how to make some of the products.
