Kathy Heshelow – Essential Oils Have Super Powers: From Solving Everyday Wellness Problems to Taking on “Superbugs”
This is a fascinating book that covers the spectrum of essential oils – a “must have”!
Alternative, natural wellness methods are growing today, and essential oils are at the top of the list! A most important super power that essential oils hold is anti-bacterial strength – including overcoming MRSA and “superbugs”.
Essential oils also have an important role to solve common wellness issues (headaches, indigestion, insomnia) and enhance day-to-day life (reduce stress, strengthen the immune system, uplift, help with focus or bliss.)
Learn in easy-to-read language:
- how and why essential oils and aromatherapy work
- some fascinating history
- info on modern scientific research
- why essential oils have been lesser known in U.S. medical circles (and big “pharm”)
- mind-body connection
- recipes for daily use
- what is happening in the field today.
Kirkus Review says: “…Heshelow (Phytoceramides: Anti-Aging at Its Best, 2014, etc.) makes the case for aromatherapy and essential oils in this examination of a misunderstood branch of alternative medicine…The author is clearly a true believer in the power of essential oils, and by the book’s end, even skeptical readers may be tempted to give them a try.”
Jaclyn Foster – I Touch Myself: Lessons to Wake Up Desire & Fire Up Your Sex Drive
Are you always giving to others in and out of the bedroom? Do you find that your sex drive is suffering along with your energy levels? Are you craving more pleasure in your life?
This vulnerable and explorative book will share how I woke up my desire and dive into how you can wake up your desire too.
This book is for those who find themselves stuck between pleasure-hungry and pleasure-resistant. Those who have struggled to find pleasure in their own bodies. Those that have a hard time asking for what they want and maybe even find themselves feeling guilt and shame for their sexual desires.
I have been there – and I’m so excited to share how I woke up my desire. As my own hunger grew for more pleasure in my life, I was driven to dive into exploring desire, pleasure, sex, orgasm, and intimacy.
I Touch Myself shares what I have learned to improve my sex life with myself and others, have orgasms, and most importantly, to feel more alive in every aspect of my life.
This book includes:
- How I started to question the rules I learned around sex and pleasure
- The golden rule I use to decide whether or not I want to pursue a desire
- Eleven lessons I’ve learned on my path to waking up desire
- Five stages of desire that provide me with structure and momentum to follow-through
Along the way, there will also be opportunities for you to practice what I have learned through exercises ( “sparks”) to provide inspiration and experimentation with the topic being explored. With each spark you read and respond to, you will have the opportunity to strengthen your own internal flame of desire.
I am super confident these lessons and stages can help you too. Even if you only choose to take one or two of these lessons and practice them regularly, you will notice shifts in the way you see yourself and your relationship with desire and sex.

Marc McLean – The Healing Power Of Ayahuasca: 16 Incredible Life Transformations That Will Inspire Your Self Discovery
When Western medicine had failed them, these 16 people turned to the magical, mysterious plant medicine ayahuasca…
And their lives changed forever. Could it do the same for you?
When life gets painful we go searching. Searching for ways to overcome the depression, break the addiction, fix the relationship, heal the chronic health problem, or simply to figure out why you’ve always felt that something’s ‘just not right’.
Always looking for solutions that are out there when, in reality, the answers are inside ourselves. But who can hand you the key to your subconscious mind so you can finally break your destructive patterns?
Which genius can help you properly understand why life seems to be one long, repetitive mess at times? What can give you hope to turn your life around when everything else has failed – Ayahuasca – the hallucinogenic plant medicine that’s been used for thousands of years in the Amazonian jungle – can help you achieve all of the above.
In The Healing Power of Ayahuasca, author Marc McLean tells how the medicine saved him at the lowest point of his life. Ayahuasca gifted a level of emotional and psychological healing he’d never have achieved in a lifetime of therapy.
Those profound experiences inspired Marc to interview people from all over the world whose lives have been completely transformed after drinking ayahuasca. In this collection of incredible true stories, you’ll read about an American woman who overcame bulimia and the depression that had haunted her from the age of 11.
A South African woman addicted to heroin for four years cured overnight. An elderly Dutchman aged 85 releasing childhood trauma from the Second World War.
In this book:
- You’ll learn about the amazing healing power of ayahuasca for emotional, psychological and even physical issues
- Questions or doubts you may have had about ayahuasca will be answered in these remarkable first-hand accounts
- You’ll be inspired that you too can overcome your darkest days with the help of ayahuasca, just like the people in this book who are now living healthier, happier lives
- You’ll be given hope that you can become well again, even if doctors, therapists, or all other avenues of treatment have let you down in the past
- You’ll be given hope that you can become well again, even if doctors, therapists, or all other avenues of treatment have let you down in the past
This is not one person’s life story that you probably won’t relate to, or a dramatised version of events at ayahuasca retreats filled with colour and lacking substance.
Instead, 16 people share how they healed a multitude of illnesses and issues through ayahuasca, including PTSD, depression, sexual abuse trauma, eating disorders, crippling fear, chronic health problems, and more.
These people openly share how they overcame the toughest times in their lives, their deep inward journeys with ayahuasca, and how they finally discovered who they really are.
Want to learn all about their incredible stories, and find the inspiration for your own healing and self discovery? Order your copy of the book today.

Claire E. Hallinan – I Notice: A Step-by-Step Guide to Transform Student Potential Through Building Intentional Relationships
Teachers and coaches get frustrated when their students don’t perform at their best. “How many times have I told you?” “You are lazy!” These phrases don’t help students improve their performance; they don’t ease the teacher’s frustration either. Instead, they create a distance between the teacher and their students.
Rather than blame others when we cannot control a situation, we should focus on learning how to manage it by noticing ourselves. To be aware of our inner experiences (emotions and thoughts) helps us to connect to ourselves and to control our impulses. That is when we can intentionally establish relationships with our learners.
In I Notice, you will find:
o Claire Hallinan’s 6-Step Method that shifts your thinking patterns by using “I notice” statements,
o How non-judgmental observations will consequently increase the students’ desire to connect with their teacher,
o How to monitor your progress using the provided worksheets, and
o Small and simple daily routines that transform your relationships with youth.
I Notice equips readers with the key to uncovering the relationship with young learners that has been stuck at a certain level.
With intentional relationships, students will perform beyond their perceived abilities.
I Notice teaches you how to be aware of present moments.
I Notice enhances your communication pathways with students in addition to your already existing good intentions. When the communication pathway is mindfully established between the teacher and students, young learners will soar to success.
Read this book and unlock the benefit of intentional relationships!
