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.”
〰 ALANIS MORISSETTE
“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.
〰 LISA BONET ~ LILAKOI MOON
“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.”

About the Author
Living Libations is a line of serums, elixirs, and essentials oil that nurture beauty, enhance the immune, and promote healthy good oral care. Nadine is the author of Holistic Dental Care: the Complete Guide to Healthy Teeth and Gums.
Nadine’s official biography begins when she first combines flasks of essential oils to recreate Nina Ricci’s L’Air du Temps for a school science fair. These botanical-inclinations led her on petal-pathed adventures in creating organic beauty balms, reviving elixirs, healing oral care and perfumed poetry to quench the natural yearnings of many.
Nadine opened North America’s first full concept Aromatherapy store, Osmosis, in 1994. Since that day Nadine has since received glowing reviews for her formulations in the Hollywood Reporter, Flare, the New York Times, Vogue and The National Post. Nadine has also addressed gatherings at conferences, appeared on television and radio shows.
Yet, the true-blue story of Nadine reads thusly
There once was a girl with a wild look in her eye and a smile that reached to the tip of her cheek. She cleaned-up nice, yet her dress was a mess with pockets full of acorns and twigs, and there was always a curl that longed to unfurl.
One day she sat – hands in lap – at the dining room table tuning in and out of the murmuring grown-up din. The raspberries gathered earlier that day had stained the fingers of her imagination. With a rosy glow she gazed out the window and saw friends of branches and birds sway, beckoning her foray. So without a sound, she slipped off her shoes and her little feet whisked her away and she didn’t return “till dusk the next day.
Entranced by the galaxy in a patch of grass, she wondered if lightening was poured from a glass. Sleeping in a starry meadow, she dreamed on the cusp of my-oh-my and why, asking the sky: do butterflies really fly in bellies? Is every flower a flask of fun? Is a petal the spoon of some great perfume? Is there a great pantry filled with ladles of moonbeams and goblets of sun? Is bark the bottle of a tree that holds the secret sap for a scraped knee? And so she asked on into infinity.
These are the mixtures, the fruit of her bud-in-mud brews, and her swishing and wishing to adorn everyone with garlands of earth. These are the jars that pour the stories of how Nature found Nadine, and how she found you.
