The complete Aromatherapy & Essential Oils Handbook for Everyday wellness
Aromatherapy is a method of employing essential oils to protect, heal and beautify.
Essential oils are described as the "life force" or "essence" of plants. The most wonderful thing about essential oils is that they are available to everyone, and they are very simple to use once the basic concepts are understood and the appropriate methods and procedures are observed.
The best known way to use essential oils is through massage. In this comprehensive book there are many, many more ways to use the oils for everything from arthritis and asthma to high blood pressure and constipation. Essential oils are now emerging as scientifically proven and accepted remedies for a variety of common conditions. The why and how certain oils heal still remains somewhat mysterious. Oils can help to treat everyday ailments, whether it be strengthening the immune system, fighting bacteria and viruses, and lowering stress levels to toning, relaxing and strengthening muscles. These oils help the body heal itself.
This book features 109 oils and 450 remedies. The recipes are easy to follow, do not take a long time to make, and are quite inexpensive -- the biggest cost is the oils. The oils are organized in an A to Z format, and each entry features the botanical name, a full description of how and why the oil is extracted as well as its therapeutic uses.
Angelica for example has a sweet, rich smell, is excellent in all skin care preparations both as a tonic and to soften and smooth rough, dry skin. It reduces inflammation and can be useful when applied to irritated skin. As a massage oil it purifies the body and acts as a lymphatic stimulator, draining the body of excess fluid, increasing energy and generally quickening the functioning of glands. It's also an excellent tonic for the entire digestive system as it strengthens the liver, stimulates appetite, aids digestion and generally boosts the whole digestive system.

Exploring the use of crystals from Mesopotamia and ancient Egypt to present-day technology, including their use in ritual and ceremonial magic and their importance in ancient religious literature, he examines the many physical and chemical properties of quartz crystals and explains how their crystalline lattice structure is the key to their amazing abilities, both scientific and paranormal.

His investigation also extends to the recent discovery in Tibet of a trove of Dropa discs--grooved stones allegedly recording an ancient alien visit to Earth.
Highlighting the use of quartz crystals and crystal skulls for psychic and spiritual purposes, DeSalvo offers step-by-step instructions for their use in scrying, meditation, and Enochian magic, including communication with angels. Reviewing accounts of power crystals in Atlantis and their use in alien technology, he explains how crystals connect the physical world with the spiritual via a powerful communication network linking all crystals and their memories--the Space-Time Crystal Matrix, a spiritual technology lost to the ages but which may become the communication system of the future.

Himalayan Salt Crystal Lamps: For Healing, Harmony, and Purification
The first practical book on how to use salt crystal lamps
Explains the mental and physical benefits of these lamps
Shows where to place them for maximum effectiveness
Discusses how to use them to enhance meditation, relaxation, Reiki, positive thinking, and chakra work
Natural salt crystal has been credited with a range of curative powers, from air purification to migraine relief to protection against airborne germs. Mined in the foothills of the Himalayas, where they have absorbed mineral elements that enrich them and imbue them with different colors, salt crystal lamps release healing negative ions into the air when turned on. Like the energizing negative ions released in the natural settings of mountains, waterfalls, or beaches, the negative ions emitted by these lamps increase oxygen flow to the brain, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost daytime energy. These ions also naturally counteract the effects of the electromagnetic waves we are bombarded with from appliances like televisions, computers, and air conditioners. Salt crystal lamps have also proved to protect against airborne germs and can reduce the symptoms of allergies, sinus problems, “brain fog,” and insomnia.
This book offers in-depth instructions on where to place these lamps in the home for maximum effectiveness, how to choose the optimal color lamp based on its color’s therapeutic benefits, and how to use them to enhance meditation, relaxation, Reiki, positive thinking, and chakra work.

Essential Oils for Mindfulness and Meditation: Relax, Replenish, and Rejuvenate
A hands-on guide showing how essential oils can support and enhance meditative and mindful practices
Details safe and effective methods to incorporate essential oils into your mindfulness or meditation practice
Explains the many ways essential oils benefit the mind, such as how odors can immediately draw your attention to the present moment, trigger a specific state of consciousness, or provide a way to regain composure quickly
Provides the latest scientific research on the emotional, psychological, physiological, and neurological effects of essential oils on the mind, body, and nervous system
Includes an easy-to-follow chart to help you choose the right essential oil for you
For millennia, the spiritual power of odor—such as from incense or frankincense—has been used to symbolize intention, stimulate awareness of our spiritual self, and accentuate rite and ritual. Drawing on this power, as well as their healing qualities, essential oils can provide the perfect complement to meditation or mindfulness practice.
Outlining the practice and benefits of meditation and mindfulness in combination with the use of essential oils, Heather Dawn Godfrey explains how these practices hone and sustain a conscious awareness of “being” in the present moment, focusing attention on what you are sensually experiencing and leaving no space for regrets, traumas, fears, anxiety, or anticipation. Providing the latest scientific research on the restorative, rehabilitative, and psycho-emotional healing effects of essential oils, she explains how the sensory experience of odors can immediately draw your attention to the present moment, trigger a specific state of consciousness, such as a deeper meditative state, or offer a way to regain composure quickly when dealing with life’s ups and downs. She shows how many essential oils naturally reduce stress and anxiety, promote a peaceful attitude, support concentration, regulate breathing, and stimulate serotonin and GABA pathways in the brain, making them ideal aids to mindfulness and meditation.

Crystal Wands: For Massage Therapy, Reflexology, and Energy Medicine
A full-color guide to using crystal wands in bodywork and energy medicine
Explores the healing properties and indications for more than 70 crystal wands
Explains how the shape of a crystal wand amplifies the crystal’s energetic effects and provides long-lasting results
Provides step-by-step instructions for crystal-wand techniques in massage and reflexology, in energy work such as aura tuning and chakra balancing, and for protection, power, and relaxation
The healing powers of crystals and gemstones were known more than eight hundred years ago by the mystic Hildegard von Bingen and as far back as two millennia ago by the Greek physician Dioskurides. In this full-color illustrated guide, Ewald Kliegel explains the benefits of incorporating crystal wands into your bodywork and healing practice and details the techniques of doing so.
Exploring the energetics of crystals and their interactions with the physical and energy bodies, including the overall sense of well-being they impart that underlies their other beneficial effects, the author explains how the versatile shape of a crystal wand amplifies the crystal’s energetic effects and offers advantages in massage and reflexology over other shapes of crystals and stones. The larger rounded end can act as a crystal sphere for massaging knots or large areas, whereas the tapered end is ideal for stimulating reflex zones, targeting acupressure points, and tracing meridian lines.
Starting with the foundational set of three wands to begin your toolkit: Rock Crystal, Red Jasper, and Aventurine, the author examines the healing properties and indications for more than 70 crystal wands, some easily available and others quite rare. He shows how easily-available Amethyst clears the head, relaxes muscle tension, benefits the lungs, nerves, and skin, aids digestion and constipation, helps dissolve blockages and addictive behavior, and combats fatigue. He explains how crystal wands can be divided into 3 energetic categories--neutral, stimulating, or balancing--and details how to select the proper wand or wands for each healing situation. The author provides step-by-step instructions for incorporating crystal wands into massage and reflexology treatments, for their use in energy medicine, specifically for internal tuning of the aura and balancing the chakras, and for using crystal wands for protection, power, and relaxation. He also explores the use of crystal-infused oils and balms to increase the healing effects of massage.
Helping you to enhance your bodywork practice or advance your self-healing work with crystals, this practical guide reveals not only the many healing applications of crystal wands but also the sheer beauty of these powerful energetic tools.
Crystal Prescriptions Vol. 6
The A-Z guide to crystals for ancestral clearing, soul retrieval, spirit release, and karmic healing
This immensely practical sixth book in the Crystal Prescriptions series covers crystals for karmic clearing, soul integration and healing the family tree. In addition to our own karma, we are hampered by ancestral memories, attitudes and beliefs that are not necessarily 'ours' but we have inherited them and, all too unconsciously, replay them time and again. They are carried in our 'junk DNA', and we have to work with them until cleared. Many people in incarnation now came in with the intention of being lineage breakers: healers for the collective and the ancestral line in addition to their personal karmic past. Fortunately some extraordinary new crystals have appeared which help us to do exactly that quickly, easily and without having to relive the trauma and dramas of karmic history. With the assistance of these crystals, and some old favourites, it is possible to heal far back into the genealogical line and our own karmic past. The healing is then projected forward into the future so that the generations to come can have the benefit of garnered soul and ancestral wisdom but without the baggage. An A-Z directory of appropriate crystals assists you to identify exactly the right crystal for your needs.
