Lots of techniques for the beginning sewer, but the photographed examples are shoddy and badly finished. I wouldn't wear anything that looked so cobbled together without an eye for detail. Not inspiring at all. I kept on thinking "you want me to use this technique so my garment looks like THAT? Surely not".

Use this book for practical, easy to use low-down on how to make creams, salves, lotions, tinctures and many other herbal preparations.

Basic Psychic Development: A User's Guide to Auras&hellip by John Friedlander

I first bought this book many years ago, along with several others on the same subject, and this is the one that has stood the test of time. From this book I learned how to refresh and energize myself, clean my chakras, remove other people's energy and my own energy blocks, and generally do the energetic housekeeping that enables me to feel alert, clear and strong, physically, emotionally and mentally. There are many books on the market about psychic development, but this I still find most useful.
