Right now more than ever, we have to take care of not only our physical health, but also our emotional, mental, and spiritual health! The last year and a half have been traumatic on so many levels. People are sick globally and the solution is proving to be just as harmful and far more disturbing than we could possibly imagine. Loads of people are having adverse and devastating reactions to the jab. It’s time for us to take charge of our lives and contemplate what is best for our health and overall self-care. It seems we can no longer trust the powers that be, so the onus is on us to do our research and find natural ways to stay healthy.
As we are all different, our personal self-care healing will take various paths. Here are four books that will take us on diverse paths to heal distinct aspects of ourselves. All it takes is one book that resonates with our vibe and inspires us to dig for the right information.
Healing With Shungite
Many people are now realizing the healing power of crystals. Each one has its own properties and attributes. Shungite is a shiny black crystal with so many benefits. Healing With Shungite will share the history of this precious stone and teach us how to use it effectively in our lives.
While I have lots of Shungite pyramids sprinkled throughout my home for EMF protection, I was surprised to learn of its other self-care healing aspects. Here is a list of some of its healing properties.
- Aids in cellular regeneration
- Demonstrates anti-inflammatory properties
- Fights and neutralizes toxins in the body
- Harmonizes and rebalances energy
- Improves sleep
- Increases enyzmatic activity
- Neutralizes EMFs
- Protects from ionizing & non-ionizing radiation
- Purifies and energizes water
- Speeds up healing of wounds
- Stimulates tissue regeneration
- Strengthens immunity
- Treats digestive illnesses
- Free radical-fighting antioxidants
Shungites antioxidant properties and other attributes have proven to be beneficial in reducing psoriasis, acne, anti-aging, and other skin conditions when used topically. You can make Shungite elixirs, mineral baths, in grid work, aura enhancer, chakra supporter and so much more. If you are considering working with Shungite, this book would be great to have as a beneficial resource.
Amazing Essential Oil Make & Takes
Essential Oils are extracted from plants and used in aromatherapy. Their unique aromas have proven beneficial for many purposes, including self-care. I think most of us have a collection of our favorite essential oils and several diffusers throughout our homes. But, some of us want to take it further and make our own oils and scented blends. Amazing Essential Oils Make & Take offers readers 144 homemade projects that you can make alone or with a group of people. But, due to our current social distancing requirement, we can use our imagination and hope on one of the socializing platforms like Skype, Zoom, or Google Meet.
- Around the house
- Diffuser blends
- Medicine cabinet
- Bath and beauty
- Essential oil FAQ
The projects in this book are divided by category, difficulty, and season. So, you’ll find a season icon on the top of each recipe. A list of all the materials you’ll need is provided in the first chapter. Some you may have, others you will have to order. The rest of the book dives right into the recipes. I would add that we should ensure that all ingredients are certified organic. There are some essential oils on the market that are synthetic and harmful to our bodies.
Did you know you can make your own facial wipes, repellent spray, cleansers, antiperspirants, hand creams, sachets, bath bombs, and more using a blend of different essential oils? That’s the exciting part. Being able to mix two or more oils to create a remedy or useful household product that is not only effective, but is also kind to planet Earth. Here’s a list of some of the recipes you can make.
- Lavender kitchen degreaser
- Tea Tree and lemon floor cleaner
- Fruit and vegetable wash
- White Fir toilet refresher
- Lemon vanilla foyer spray
- Bergamot handing car diffuser
- Geranium mood lifter

Creating your own essential oil products is fun and far more beneficial than toxin saturated store shelf products. Have fun and create your own recipes too.
The Self Love Workbook
The Self Love Workbook provides an intimate self-care space for reflection and introspection. If we don’t have any love for ourselves, we tend to suffer from low self-esteem, low confidence, and perhaps some self-hatred. The exercises in this interactive book will provide prompts for self-analysis or soul searching along with step-by-step help and advice.
As you embark on this self-love journey and go through the exercises and activities within these pages, you will glean insight into your true self. The onset of the book has you delving deep and writing down what it was that brought you to embrace this self-love journey. Once you’ve been honest about your reasons, you can start chapter 1 Self-Love. Each chapter has you answering questions that require introspection and candor. Plus, there are several activities that are not only fun, but they are also healing. As you go through each chapter, you can gauge your progress and enjoy the tiny steps or leaps you’ve made.
The Happy Empath’s Affirmations
They say that we repeat the say old negative thoughts 60,000 times a day. As we know, thoughts are things and each has its own vibration. And we attract the same vibes we send out. One solution is to fill our minds with positive thoughts and repeat them often. The Happy Empath’s Affirmations offers us, especially those who are empaths, self-empowering statements that will begin to reprogram our mindset. And this will lead to making positive shifts in all areas of our lives. Empaths are very intuitive and possess many natural psychic abilities. They can also feel everything, even the most subtle energy. So having and repeating these mantras will allow them to reset and refocus. But, these affirmations are so healing, anyone can use them.
