Nourishing Traditions – by Sally Fallon and Mary G Enig

Nourishing TraditionsI was first introduced to this book by an article online. I was researching the health benefits of the traditional Russian beverage beet root Kvass.

Low and behold, Beth Stedman’s site inspired me to try the recipe and purchase the book. Her journey in finding health cures and remedies for ailments is similar to mine.

Her husband is fighting stage four of melanoma. I have no doubt that Beth’s steadfast and tenacity of finding a cure will be very successful.

One thing for sure, Beth’s honesty is heartfelt. I love her quote “I am a believer, who often calls for grace.” And like Beth, I find Nourishing Traditions a great inspiration whether you are a novice or expert on nutrition.

The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy ~ ~ ~ by Valerie Ann Worwood – review

Essential Oils and Aromatherapy 2My Review

Easy to Use & Informative!

A fabulous book for both the novice and the advanced! Worwood delivers a hands-on and easy-to-comprehend approach to applying essential oils and aromatherapy for everyday use. The well experienced author reveals 600+ unique recipes that are very simple. Unlike many aromatherapy recipes that use 20+ ingredients, Worwood utilizes only a few essential oils that are the most effective. In fact, many of the recipes have no more than 10 essential oils, most have 5 ingredients.

The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy also contains helpful information about all essential oils used in the recipes and their medicinal values. What is more, it is the ideal for the novice who knows absolutely nothing about essential oils. As well, the recipes include home use, travel, work and emergency first aid. Continue reading
