Recently, several news outlets including the Los Angeles Times reported that books focused on mental and emotional well-being are outselling books on previously popular topics like exercise and dieting. Since you — IBN members — are the experts at influencing people to embrace self-care, we are excited to present this opportunity for you, your brand, and your self-care recipe to be featured in our new book: Essential Self-Care: The Modern Woman's Guide to At-Home Beauty Rituals and Well-Being.

Our new book will guide the reader through ways to customize their own at-home beauty, self-care, and wellness routines using ingredients and resources they have at home or can easily order online. Examples include:

• a personalized facial mask to complement your skin type

• a botanical foot soak to relax tired feet

• a hair conditioner designed to protect, nourish, and moisturize dry hair

• an aromatherapy gel blend to help relieve tension and stress

• a candle to light the bathroom during your weekly nighttime bathing ritual

• an herbal tea blend to calm anxiety and relieve a restless mind

• a spray facial toner to comfort and hydrate the skin

The Essential Self-Care Book will provide the inspiration readers need to be empowered to transform their lives, one small at-home beauty and lifestyle ritual at a time.
