We’ve Been Published… Sort Of! Great Health and Natural Lifestyle Books We’ve Been Mentioned In
There are plenty of books out there pertaining to health, natural beauty, relaxation and mindfulness – and we’re luckily enough to have been regarded by some of these helpful tomes as a good source of products that can help you on your way to living a fulfilling natural lifestyle. From cookery books to self-help books to books dedicated to shopping, our name has popped up in the resources section to advise readers to explore our ranges of oils, herbs or beauty products, and we’re ever so grateful!
We thought we’d pick out a few of the books we pop up in in case you’re looking for an inspiring and motivational new read. They must be good if they’re citing us as a location for the best natural products!
Everything I’ve Ever Done That Worked by Lesley Garner
Lesley Garner is a renowned journalist and social commentator who has written several motivational books that she calls ‘self-help memoirs’. Motivational and inspiring, she writes from her own personal experiences which makes for a compelling and relatable read. We were lucky enough to be name-checked in her first book, ‘Everything I’ve Ever Done That Worked’ as a source for a wide range of essential oils ideal for assisting you in living a calm, happy and fulfilled life. You can find the book here.
The Classical Cookbook by Andrew Dalby and Sally Grainger
The very unique and original ‘Classical Cookbook’ takes ancient gourmet recipes from 750 BC to AD 450, and recreates them for the modern cook as well as providing historical background. Examples include an olive relish as mentioned in Homer’s ‘Odyssey’. It’s a great read for foodies and history buffs alike, that also happens to cite us as a source for the more unusual herbs and spices that these recipes call for.
Lavender: Nature’s Way to Relaxation and Health by Philippa Waring
All about lavender as one of the best known (and most beneficial) ancient remedies, Philippa Waring’s book tells a reader all about how the herb can be used in its various forms to create relaxation and a calming atmosphere. She also explains the processes behind extracting essential oils from lavender plants, and even how to grow your own. We’re listed in her recommended suppliers of lavender essential oil, and we have plenty of options for not only the oil itself but also products that incorporate it here.
The Shopaholic’s Guide to Buying Beauty & Fashion Online and The Shopaholic’s Guide to Buying for Mother & Child Online both by Patricia Davidson
The Shopaholic series of books provide invaluable sources for shopping online for pretty much anything you can think of. We’ve been very lucky to be included in both Patricia’s Fashion & Beauty edition and the Mother & Child edition because of our ranges of natural beauty products. Both books would make brilliant gifts for fashionistas or mums-to-be as encyclopaedic fonts of information!
It’s Not Easy Being Green by Dick Strawbridge
You may recognise Dick from TV – he started out on Scrapheap Challenge and eventually ended up being part of his own programme, which ran for three series. It followed him and his family as they tried to live the greenest life possible, including exploring the possibilities of reducing waste and sustainable fuel alternatives. The series was accompanied by a book which you can pick up here if you’re interested in learning more about living a lifestyle that is more respectful of our planet. We were included in the resources list relating to his chapter on ‘Luxuries and Living the Good Life’, in which he discusses luxurious yet natural skincare treats incorporating many of the delightful essential oils in our collection.
