I (incorrectly) expected this book to be mostly recipes. As in food recipes. So I was very pleased to see recipes for cleaning products and body products. Not only does it begin with a comprehensive explanation of kitchen basics, fermentation, canning and making chicken broth, she also goes into detail of how various cleaning products work (and therefore how to make your own) and how personal care products work. Read the rest of my review on Eight Acres.
