9780061246531: Almond Eyes, Lotus Feet: Indian Traditions in Beauty and Health

A national bestseller in India, Almond Eyes, Lotus Feet is the fictional memoir of a wise Indian princess, who recalls the ways the women of the Indian court found friendship, faith, and love through their beauty traditions. We journey with her as she recounts a lifetime of comforting rituals, tantalizing textures, colors, and fragrances, exquisite jewels and adornments, and assorted beauty and health secrets passed through generations of women by word of mouth.

In Almond Eyes, Lotus Feet, Sharada Dwivedi, a native of India, and Shalini Devi Holkar, an Indian princess by marriage, draw on the oral histories of privileged Indian women to capture and revive their many wonderful and wise beauty traditions. The result is a rich cultural tapestry, filled with ancient remedies, recipes, and tonics used to soften skin, silken hair, enrich the body, and lift the spirit like no store-bought products can. Additionally, the book offers a glossary of plants, flowers, spices, and grains and simple home remedies for women in all stages of life—from puberty to pregnancy to menopause—including:

  • Almond-Saffron for cleansing and exfoliation
  • Papaya-Mint-Tea for acne and pimples
  • Cream & Honey for dry skin and wrinkles
  • Cress & Rosewater for post-natal strength
  • Tulsi Kadha (Basil Tea) for coughs or morning sickness

Replete with gorgeous photos and illustrations from a bygone era, Almond Eyes, Lotus Feet is a treasure trove of time-honored health and beauty customs that will delight the senses of modern women everywhere.

About the Author:

Sharada Dwivedi is the author and publisher of numerous books about her native India. Her interest in folk medicine stems from personal memories of home remedies used in her family for many generations. She lives in Mumbai, India.



Shalini Devi Holkar is an American by birth and an Indian princess by marriage. She has written for many periodicals and founded the Women Weave International Fund to promote economic development for women in India, to which all of her proceeds from this book will be donated. She lives in Mumbai, India.

Review:

“A delightful pot-pourri of a book, full of rich scents, exotic titbits and delicious surprises. This is far more than just a beauty book for women, it is also a repository of Indian culture, much of it garnered first hand from the last generation of India’s princesses and royal families.” (Charles Allen, author of the international bestseller, Plain Tales from the Raj)
