Am madly in love with this book.

My soul is drinking it in and I'm so grateful.


A beautiful invitation to reconnect with the elements for health and vitality. It has redefined my self care routine completely. I am deeply grateful to Nadine for this gift.

I never wanted it to end!

This book is amazing! I waited a long time for this book, I read it when she first released it, and I am just taking the time to write a review for it. Sad I know! Better late than never. I call this my Bible! Not a "beauty bible" but a Bible because it is so beautifully written and has far more topics that just what's external, she writes about the soul, the sun, the moon, and the stars. I got so much from it, I never wanted it to end! I refer to it quite often. I don't have children of my own yet! But I will be reading them this as a bedtime story! Thank you Nadine you are a goddess! By the way her products will blow you away they are magical!

I cannot tell you how grateful I am for this incredible book!!!

Thank you thank you thank you!! My wish is that every woman has the opportunity to read these words and resonate with the deep truths within its pages. Thank you

I have had it in my possession for about 20 minutes now and I am smitten!

Summertime reading. I have been wanting to dive into this brilliant book since it was released. I have had it in my possession for about 20 minutes now and I am smitten! I cannot wait to learn more #alwayslearning and put some of this wonder into practice. Thank you @livinglibations !!!

A beautiful experience

I discovered @livinglibations after reading Nadine Artemis’ book, Renegade Beauty. The book has a deep and wonderful whole body/mind/spirit approach to beauty and felt like a beautiful spiritual experience. Nothing less.

LOVED this book. I completely devoured it!

The author is the founder of @livinglibations which are 100% natural / pure products and they’re amazing! Been using the products for awhile and I decided to pick up this book to learn more about essential oils and how I can use the natural things around me. Renegade Beauty is so beautifully written and so well researched too. I really like that there’s a section for different symptoms / problems you may be having and what essential oils can help. I probably reference it at least once a week. ... 10/10 recommend this book and their products!

A must have for anyone interested in chemical free beauty.

I wish I could give this book more stars. Nadine is incredible, I love her products and ethos. I have been looking forward to this book for a long time and it way exceeds expectations. A must have for anyone interested in chemical free beauty. From

One of the best books on wellness and healthy, clean, non-toxic lifestyle there is today.

Poetically scientific - my new beauty bible

I love everything about this book. The amount of scientific information is incredible but not at all overwhelming - Nadine has a way of turning it into poetry so it's beautiful as well as informative. I keep coming back to it, it's my new beauty and wellness bible! I can't wait to have some time to create some of the amazing recipes, Beach Breeze Hair Spray and Cleopatra Charcoal Mascara are top of my list! Every woman who cares about her beauty (inside and out) should own this book.

This book is a dream! Get it!

Feels like a meditation

BIG thanks and-if possible-a hug to Nadine for her books and work... I have been for many many years ago happy about aromatherapy and participated in some courses in aroma massage ,.....using etheric oils on and off through all my life.... But when reading -first the "tooth book" and now the "beauty book" from Nadine- it feels like a meditation for me. I resonate so strongly with her words and messages /and the way she says it/ , that I really love and appreciate that. It´s far beyond the cognitive understanding of it...and this is, what feels like a present for me, being normally too much in my left hemisphere... ..Blessed be your products, your company and all of you over there

I have been so thankful for this book

“I think we must stop treating beauty as a thing or quality, and see it instead as a kind of communion.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have been so thankful for this book as of late- returning to it over and over again for wisdom and affirmation. Especially within the past few days. Nadine’s view of beauty and life is poetic and makes my heart soar. We need more of this, for as I post more on here I also spend more time scrolling through images of others trying to create space for themselves, which can be inspiring and refreshing but can also be down right infuriating and disheartening. So many popular bloggers are posting about these expensive, luxurious beauty items and supplements and must dos and haves for self care and it's alarming. Women and men alike are getting the message that it's just ONE more item or ONE more to-do before they achieve full satisfaction with themselves; before they feel like they're caring adequately for themselves. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I understand betterment and I understand wishing to help others achieve this. However, I wish more people spoke about this communion as Nadine does; this communion of spirit, physicality, emotionality, and that which is external. Finding a place where we are in reckoning with all of these forces in our lives. This asks us to dive inside to find that beauty and satisfaction that we've been after... that which we thought would come with those new products or new diet. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This kind of self-care, this kind of beauty-- it's available to anyone because it lies within each of us. “An unimagined beauty flows through you.” Through each of us. @livinglibations

A must read

I've always thought of witches as botanists. In my mind, the archetype of the witch is a powerful, wild and free woman living in the woods, with a vast knowledge of plants. Nadine Artemis of @livinglibations is the ultimate witch to me ❤️. Her book #renegadebeauty is a must read. Full of scientific information about gut health, safe sun exposure and truly natural beauty.

A comprehensive manual for beauty

Inspiring, engaging, informative! Reading this book is turning into a meditative soul enriching ritual; I looks forward to carving out time for whenever I can. Thank you for creating this! It is such a comprehensive manual for beauty ~ I am sharing with all the women in my life in hopes to spark their interest towards a greater quality of health, wellness and life.

I recommend this brand if you are looking for high quality, natural products.

I used @livinglibations years ago and it worked on my acne prone skin. I was crazy to not reorder it. Now my skin is out of control with all the drugstore products because I was too lazy to continue my natural routine. I have repurchased Nadine’s high quality products and also her second book.

Chock full of amazing information, recipes, oh my gosh love it!

Just want to say what a joy all your creations are! I have tried verve and tonic, sea buckthorn best skin ever, vanilla chocolate, rose best skin ever, breast massage oil, poetic pits pal santos, sea buckthorn shampoo, petal soother, and lover lips cocoa, moccasin flower perfume, and I have loved every product! Just placed another order and am trying trees please for my husband, best skin ever frankincense, poetic pits earth ( can’t recall full name) True Blue shampoo, and a sleep oil for face. I am sooo excited for them to get here. Alchemy at its finest. Purest products and they work! My daughter had some kind of major dry skin issue behind one ear for months and months... and caused her a lot of embarrassment because visually it was very very obvious. we tried prescription creams, pure tea tree, coconut oil, olive oil, a large amount of drug store creams, NOTHING WORKED! Put sea buckthorn best skin ever, cleared up in three days... ❤️❤️❤️ Also reading your book and am in awe of your wisdom!

A Masterpiece!

Wow! This book is dripping with gems on every page. This book is a treasure and is cherished by me and my daughters. Thank-you

Love this book

Love this book. I have also been a living libations fan and now having Nadine's wealth of knowledge in a book is fantastic. I really like the way she not only generously shares formulations she addresses "essential beauty" and the cultural context that influences our view of beauty. Working in the health field I really value her up to date research and the poetical language of the book. Much easier for me to absorb than a step by step how to manual. No matter what your age I think you will feel uplifted by how she writes and the book makes me feel more beautiful - Thank you!! Great to be able to step away from the beauty counter without feeling the need to give up on wanting to be beautiful. Review from

I love it!

I have been waiting for a book from Nadine Artemis. I have listened to her interviews in several podcasts and she has really a fantastic person who helps people to understand the problem with most beauty products and gives wonderful advise how you can make your own beauty products and how your beauty really comes from inside out. Review from Amazon.

After reading this book, you will never shop department beauty counters again....

I have been a loyal Living Libations customer for a few years... I love their ethically sourced ingredients/products and the way my 55 year old skin has perked up by using them. Renegade Beauty is a gem... a wealth of information on beauty, botanicals and the science behind it. Nadine Artemis’ book could be considered a Botanical Beauty Bible... her knowledge is vast and backed by science in an easy to read, sometimes poetic, manner. I highly recommend this book for women (and men) of all ages who care about clean products that go in and on their bodies. Review from Amazon.

Call me a renegade!

Don’t let the pretty cover and all of the vibrant pictures fool you – Renegade Beauty is no fluff read. Artemis addresses every discipline that touches beauty. She starts with history and philosophy, moves to science, and ends with a mixture of botany and cosmetology...or maybe I should say cosmoetics. (When you read it you’ll understand.) There is a lot of science in here. She cites biology, dermatology, microbiology, and botany research studies to back up the assertions she makes in the book: why we need nature, why we really should toss most of our drug store and department store cosmetics, and why clean living and plant products are better alternatives. You don’t need a biology degree to understand these chapters either – her sense of humor and light-handed writing style are the spoon full of sugar that help the medicine go down (the pretty pictures help, too). And there is plenty of “how-to” for the DIY types like me. The last few chapters of the book are all about botanical recipes and tips for using plant oils – and, boy is it comprehensive! This goes way, way beyond fixing sags, bags, and wrinkles. From eye lashes to fingernails, pregnancy to perfume, and digestion to tooth brushing – it’s all in there. I bought the book because I am stepping back from commercialism and rethinking the ethics of the cosmetics industry, and Renegade Beauty is going to be my guide to a saner, natural, and more compassionate sense of beauty. Call me a renegade! I'm officially a fan. Review form Amazon

Goddess, genius, this book is everything you need to know!

Nadine, you have brought healing and guidance to my life when I needed it most. In a world where we are taught to look outwardly for healing and beauty, you guide the way back to self love and the heart. I’m so grateful every day for the knowledge, purity and integrity you bring to the world.

Makes it pretty easy to dive into a beauty routine that involves nature’s gifts

While we have never before experienced as much technology as we do today, this also means that we’ve never been so bombarded with ads and other people’s ideas of what would make us beautiful. In direct defiance of that, Nadine Artemis has encouraged women to embrace nature and the elements and to forgo the chemicals, products, facials, and so on. With a bevy of famous women as fans, it’s not hard to see why Artemis’s ideas, and her new tome Renegade Beauty, have a following. It also makes it pretty easy to dive into a beauty routine that involves nature’s gifts—as well as your own. Books That Bring Us Joy: November 2017 from Books for Better Living

Get one if you haven't!!

Lounging with my copy of Renegade Beauty by Nadine Artemis @livinglibations and loving each words, which I feel are imbued with divine femininity and natural beauty. I find Nadine balances a sense of urgency in abandoning synthetic cosmetics with easy bite sized suggestions on stepping into the world of botanical powers. As a reader, I understand the dire state that we find ourselves in now but without the sinking doomed helplessness that one sometimes get from awakening from what is the norm. The book makes me feel empowered and supported. It is also full of DIY tips for anything from acne to mental health issues.


Praise for Renegade Beauty

What is beauty? We all feel that a redefinition is in order, but the pioneers in this shift may come from a surprising arena. That is the intersection of science and spirituality, a vanguard front of change that will transform us from the inside out leaving us feeling nurtured, whole, and finally comfortable in our own skin. Renegade Beauty is a guide to this new terrain, complete with a personal roadmap for your own experience of beauty from the practical to the etheric. More than simply a beauty book, this is one of the most comprehensive guides to the new paradigm of health and medicine including essential myth-busting and evidence-based tips for true health and wellness. A long-time fan and supporter of Nadine's alchemical creations, this text reminds us how to get exactly where we most desire to go - home to the web of wonder that is the natural world. This book has soared to the top of my list for awakened vitality and self-healing.

—KELLY BROGAN MD, Holistic Psychiatrist and Author of The NY Times Bestseller, A Mind of Your Own

“Renegade Beauty melted me into the revelation that my body will heal –– and beautify –– if I stop short-circuiting it's power with chemicals and quick fixes. The beauty industry is a disempowering (and toxic) industry. Nadine's type of knowledge is the lotion and potion we need to apply.”

—DANIELLE LAPORTE, author of The Desire Map and White Hot Truth

“Nadine Artemis has been my essential oil mentor since I was 19 years old. She is a savant alchemist whose teachings are on the front lines of the self-care movement. I recommend her products and her teachings of profound visionary service to any and all.”


“Renegade Beauty poetically demonstrates Nadine’s devotion to glorifying true beauty— our inner beauty— and explores the ways we can harmonize with nature’s healing gifts and natural rhythms. A beautiful and unique book that offers far more than the beauty routine you might expect!”

ANTHONY WILLIAM, Author of Medical Medium: Secrets Behind Chronic and Mystery Illness and How to Finally Heal 

“Simply reading Renegade Beauty made me feel more beautiful. Nadine’s scientific and poetic style equals the lavish abundance of nature that she extols to restore. I loved reading about beauty from Nadine's perspective.”

—CAROL ALT, health advocate, actor, Fox News host, supermodel and author of A Healthy You

The truth will set you free. Seek and thou shall find… These are universal truths that stand the test of time. And these virtues, it seems to me, are at the heart of what these words Renegade Beauty mean.

The pursuit of vitality is navigated through deep listening. We quickly burn through our youthful reserves, as few of us have been taught how to replenish. The loss of this vital energy is key as to whether we live an inspired life. (One must have stamina to pursue what one dares to imagine.)

Nature has always been my teacher, so to turn to her divine intelligence as the source of my healing, renewed potency, and sustained power simply makes sense. All around us we see what is to become of us: old-age, illness, death… It is mimicked in nature all around us. No flower stays in full bloom forever. The wither comes for us all. Thank you, Nadine, for generously sharing your life’s passion with us. Guiding us and reminding us what we know is true. She ain’t called Mother Nature for nuthin’. She is what we are made of. Therefore, it is she that can heal us.

The beauty one seeks IS the gift returned by the vitality lived in pursuit of these Truths.

Stay thirsty - and let Them spill unto Thee. There is no way to peace; peace is the way.


 “Finally! The truth about beauty and skincare from someone I love and trust whose book will be a bible on the bookshelf for my three girls. 

I am most excited that this book will positively impact the future generations of young girls and women who are becoming aware earlier and younger in their lives of the emphasis society places on appearance and beauty. Nadine's knowledge and her deep wisdom about the body and what TRULY creates beauty is obvious and will be a relief for women everywhere. And, young women will be armed with knowledge of what to avoid and what to embrace and all with the poetic beauty that springs forth from this magical woman's heart.”
