From familiar soothing lavender, to mind-zinging lemon and the glorious "mmm..." of rose absolute, essential oils have always done it for me. But what to use for what? What to mix with what? And how to use them for whom? This chart provides some answers. “The 16 Essential Oils for home use” is a really comprehensive at a glance chart, more of a book on one page.
Essential oils have been used for medicine and therapeutic treatments for thousands of years, and can be used as a blended massage oil, in the bath, as a wash, as a cold compress, in a cream or lotion, in an oil burner or simply as a gorgeous personalised perfume.
Created in conjunction with Sophia Bee, who qualified in Holistic and Clinical Aromatherapy through the AAPA at Essential Care Training in South London in 1999.
This wall chart is a fantastic activity chart for children (and adults) that will help ensure their daily intake of the nutritious fruits and vegetables in the recommended five portions a day. The chart has been fancifully hand drawn and painted to make it especially attractive to children.
The way it works is this:
Each member of the family chooses an animal for the week and as they eat particular fruits and vegetables from the 5 colour categories they put their sticker in the appropriate column for that day.
Each member of the family can see who has had what each day and if everyone gets at least 5 items. This is a fun way to teach conscious healthy eating. If you keep track of how each person does each day prizes can be given to the ones who have covered 5 items for each day of the week.
The chart has a wipe clean, laminated finish. There are seven each of five different animal stickers, enough for a family of five.
We know that it is better to eat local, seasonal UK produce. Better for us and for the planet. We often don't, as we are not really sure what is in season... At least most of us aren't and hence this chart...
A decorative, at a glance, general guide to which popular U.K. fruit and vegetables are in season. It shows which produce is available all year round, which for some months only and whether from stores or fresh.
Liz Cook decided to research the most popular and effective remedies, and drew all her findings on an easy-to-read, quick reference wall chart (Lavender and Tea Tree oils are real stars).
Full colour printed on high-quality laminated paper, this, like all her charts, is hand drawn and written.

We all know the cleaning is really done by fairies (especially the one that does that black ring around the bath). But if your house seems to need a little human intervention then this chart is the guide to environmentally friendly approaches to cleaning - using less toxic and often much less packaged and expensive alternatives to commercial cleaning products.
The two most popular are the distilled white vinegar and newspaper for windows and mirrors and bicarbonate of soda for the sinks - they come up unbelievably clean and shiny.
