The author of Skin Cleanse returns with a comprehensive guide to the ultimate ingredient for living an all-natural, plant-based lifestyle: essential oils. For millennia, essential oils have played a key role in health and beauty rituals. From references in the Bible (frankincense and myrrh) to Hippocrates (who documented the effects of oils from over 300 plants) to Ancient Egypt (Cleopatra pioneered the use of fragrance), essential oils have been revered throughout human history for their healing powers and their unparalleled scent. But in modern times, they’ve often been misunderstood, underappreciated, even cast as "dangerous"—and relegated to the dusty shelves of health food stores. That is, until recently. Today they’re back in the spotlight as increasing numbers of consumers are looking for all-natural alternatives to skincare products and opting for fragrance-free detergents and soaps, natural remedies for common ailments, and toxin-free home cleaning solutions. Enter Adina Grigore, owner and founder of the wildly popular all-natural skincare line SW Basics. A former essential oil skeptic, Grigore learned everything she could about these potent plant-based compounds when she began formulating her products. And what she learned was that essential oils are some of the most powerful, healing, health-promoting compounds found in nature. That, and they smell pretty great too. In Just the Essentials, Grigore offers a 21st-century guide to these ancient oils, offering a fresh, fun, and authoritative overview of what they are and how they can be easily incorporated into anyone’s life. From plant-based medicine to all-natural skincare to safer and cleaner household products to aromatherapy, this handy and entertaining guide provides detailed advice for a wide array of oils, safety guidelines, and a range of do-it-yourself recipes to get started. Inside you'll discover such fun facts as: Tea tree oil is a powerful antibacterial that is proven to be as effective for treating acne as benzoyl peroxide; it also kills oral bacteria and is a life-saver for tooth infections. Cinnamon oil is a circulation-booster that helps to ease everyday aches and pains as well as headaches (even migraines). Peppermint oil is brimming with antimicrobial properties; peppermint oil can be used for everything from alleviating digestive problems to cleaning your kitchen counters. With lists of the best oils for beginners; instructions for diffusing and safe handling; and DIY recipes from dish soap to toothpaste to facial masks, Just the Essentials makes it easy and enjoyable to reap the many benefits of these pure plant extracts.

Anyone who has tried to slim down is used to adding (calories, points, fat grams, net carbs) and subtracting (pounds, inches, dress sizes). But all that diet math rarely results in long-lasting weight loss. To be successful on The One One One Diet, readers only need to count to one: one protein, one carb, and one fat at every meal. For over 12 years, nutritionist Rania Batayneh has used this plan with more than 800 clients, and they've collectively dropped thousands of pounds permanently. The One One One Diet isn't another get-slim-quick fad, but rather gives readers the tools to eat healthfully for life. As long as readers stick to the ratio, nothing is off limits. Craving pizza? The crust (carb), sausage (protein), cheese (fat), and free veggies combine for a balanced, satisfying meal. Holiday family meals? Roast beef (protein), mashed potatoes (carb), gravy (fat), and green beans (free veggies) are on the table. The plan is perfectly adaptable to every lifestyle, food preference, cuisine, and personality. To illustrate how flexible and delicious this plan can be, Rania shares 75 recipes that she developed for her healthy meal catering service. Dishes such as Sumac-Infused Chicken Wraps, Butternut Squash Chickpea Curry, and Zucchini Chip Muffins are fast and easy to make and definitely don't taste like diet food. With The One One One Diet, readers will enhance overall wellness, lower cholesterol and blood pressure, increase energy and alertness, and reach their goal weight for good.

How To Be a Good Wife by Emma Chapman is a haunting literary debut about a woman who begins having visions that make her question everything she knows Marta and Hector have been married for a long time. Through the good and bad; through raising a son and sending him off to life after university. So long, in fact, that Marta finds it difficult to remember her life before Hector. He has always taken care of her, and she has always done everything she can to be a good wife—as advised by a dog-eared manual given to her by Hector's aloof mother on their wedding day. But now, something is changing. Small things seem off. A flash of movement in the corner of her eye, elapsed moments that she can't recall. Visions of a blonde girl in the darkness that only Marta can see. Perhaps she is starting to remember—or perhaps her mind is playing tricks on her. As Marta's visions persist and her reality grows more disjointed, it's unclear if the danger lies in the world around her, or in Marta herself. The girl is growing more real every day, and she wants something.
