Summary

Learn how to use the ancient power of essential oils to make nontoxic dishwashing liquid, deodorant, toothpaste, insect repellent, and more. 
 
Essential oils have been used in healing for thousands of years, in cultures from Greek to Persian, Roman to Assyrian, and vessels have even been found in Egyptian tombs. To this day, they offer speedy remedies that help us to heal just by removing a cap and breathing in. Used as household cleaners, they will help to rid your home of toxic chemicals. In your beauty and wellness practice, they can enliven your rituals with healing and fragrance.  
 
In this book, holistic lifestyle and skincare guru Shiva Rose helps you harness the power of essential oils through easy, nontoxic recipes for daily home use (dishwashing liquid and a bleach alternative), beauty (toners and essential oil perfumes), and more.

“Whole Beauty overflows with soul-nourishing rituals . . . Shiva’s insights on choosing crystals, drawing the most de-stressing bath of all time, and finding your mantra are reason enough for keeping Whole Beauty bedside; we thumb through it whenever we’re feeling a bit adrift.” —goop 
 
 “This book is literally life-changing. Shiva makes us think about taking care of ourselves both physically and spiritually, and I love that she shows us how to do it step by step.” —Molly Sims, actress, model, and author of Everyday Chic

    From the majestic Bengal tiger to the domesticated Siamese comes a meditation on cats from the bestselling author of The Hidden Life of Dogs and The Social Lives of Dogs  From as far back in time as the disappearance of the dinosaurs, cats have occupied an important place in our evolutionary, social, and cultural history. The family of the cat is as diverse as it is widespread, ranging from the lions, tigers, and pumas of the African and Asian wilds to the domesticated cats of our homes, zoos, and circuses.   When she witnesses her housecat, Rajah, effortlessly scare off two fully-grown deer, acclaimed anthropologist Elizabeth Marshall Thomas starts studying the links that bind the feline family together. Immersing herself in the subtle differences of their social orders, feeding behaviors, and means of communication, Thomas explores the nature of the cat, both wild and domestic, and the resilient streak that has ensured its survival over thousands of years.

    “Confessions of a Life at Sea, In Australia and amid the Islands of the Pacific”. Published by Grant Richards, London a first edition 1915.
    
    Thick octavo, 304 pages private library stamp at front and rear of Thomas Kinmore of Cork, Ireland. Nicely illustrated with 23 images from photographs. Pretty good condition.
    
    An unusual book starting with “I run away to sea” but finds himself stranded in Brisbane and then off to the bush before leaving for the South Sea Islands. The usual chapter on cannibalism with much time spent in Samoa and Fiji, then Tahiti (and the usual chapter on morals) and the Marquesan Queens and back to Samoa before returning to Australia. Lost in the bush and on to the Gold Fields and Coolgardie. References to the Bounty and of course R.L.S. And quite a bit of violin playing – see his biography below.
    
    Written in an interesting somewhat casual style but packed with observation if not sometimes a bit puffed up.
    
    The author George Arnold Haynes Safroni-Middleton (1873-1950), also known as Count Safroni, was a British Composer, violinist, harpist, writer and astronomer. Born in Kent he studied violin with Pablo de Sarasate and later played with the orchestra at Her Majesty’s Theatre, Sydney. He toured Australia and explored Borneo, Papua New Guinea and Malaysia (and also obviously the Pacific). He composed “Imperial Echoes” in 1913 which for many years was the theme of "Radio Newsreel" on the BBC. Quite an odd chap.
    
    In Australian and (mainly) in the Pacific - entertaining
