Good quality kettle. It's still going strong now nearly two years later, in spite of constant brewing up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Reassuring and positive, 15 Aug 2014

Elaine Aron says it is normal for a percentage of the population to be highly sensitive, it is not a disorder! The world needs sensitive people. This is a lovely book that increases confidence and encourages sensitive people in finding ways to be comfortable being themselves.


Controlling People: How to Recognize, Understand and Deal with People Who Try to Control You
Controlling People: How to Recognize, Understand and Deal with People Who Try to Control You
by Patricia Evans
Edition: Paperback
Price: 7.69

5.0 out of 5 stars An insight into the minds of controlling people, 15 Aug 2014
An excellent book for understanding how some people become controlling. Gives examples of controlling behaviour and describes what is going on the (unconscious) mind of a controlling person and how it comes about. Useful for both victims and for controlling people themselves, to help them become more self-aware. Doesn't give much advice on dealing with the problem but helps by giving good insight so that controlling behaviours can be more easily recognised. Easy to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliantly unique, 8 Sep 2013

This is an unusual book, in that it discusses how to write non-fiction in an inspiring way, something that Stephen Harrod Buhner excels at.

5.0 out of 5 stars thoughtful and highly readable, 8 Sep 2013

I love Nimue's writing. This is a thoughtfully written book in an easy to read but intelligent style. It covers aspects of Druidry not considered in many other books on the topic.

5.0 out of 5 stars genuine 100% henna powder, 24 Jun 2010
I was very happy with this henna. Can be used to decorate hands and feet. I used it to dye my hair. If you follow the instructions you get a really bright copper colour, with good coverage of grey and it conditions your hair. Would definitely buy again. Not all henna products are pure henna, and some have nasty chemicals in. This the real stuff, and it's cheap!

5.0 out of 5 stars a lovely book, 19 Nov 2009
This book is suitable for young children, mainly preschoolers, but the pictures and story are so beautiful it is a book to treasure. The simple story has a lovely sentiment, all about the blueberry and cranberry children helping peter collect berries and playing together. There is absolutely nothing in it that might disturb a young child. I love reading it to my daughter. I love these kind of books with stories of nature beings, a healthy antidote to a technological culture. A similar book is the Sun Egg by the same author, which is just as lovely. Both mini books are nicely bound hardbacks.

5.0 out of 5 stars qualified herbalists and students buy this!, 19 May 2009
This is the book I should have had when I was a student herbalist! The pharmacology and actions of herbs chapters are detailed and I have found these particularly useful. The book assumes some knowledge of chemistry. It is aimed at professional herbalists, not really for the lay person. I would recommend this book as a good basis for a scientific/medical approach that is still holistic. Definitely worth the money.
