Here is the audio edition of the hilarious and thought-provoking new travel book from the best-selling author of Extra Virgin. Aiming to track down a small oasis town deep in the Sahara, some of whose generous inhabitants came to her rescue on a black day in her adolescence, Annie Hawes leaves her home in the olive groves of Italy and sets off along the south coast of the Mediterranean. Travelling through Morocco and Algeria, she eats pigeon pie with a family of cannabis farmers, and learns about the habits of djinns; she encounters citizens whose protest against the tyrannical King Hassan takes the form of attaching colanders to their television aerials - a practice he soon outlaws - and comes across a stone-age method of making olive-oil, still going strong. She allows a ten-year-old to lead her into the fundamentalist strongholds of the suburbs of Algiers - where she makes a good friend. Plunging southwards, regardless, into the desert, she at last shares a lunch of salt-cured Saharan haggis with her old friends, in a green and pleasant palm grove perfumed by flowering henna - once, it seems, the favourite scent of the Prophet Mohammed. She discovers at journey´s end that life in a date-farming oasis, haunting though its songs may be, is not so simple and uncomplicated as she has imagined. Annie Hawes has legions of fans. Her writing has the well-built flow of fiction and the self-effacing honesty of a journal. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Saskia Wickham.

Essential oils are of varying quality. Whether you are an aromatherapist or a consumer, assessing the quality of essential oils (EOs) is not easy. They originate from across the world, and companies or suppliers get them from wholesalers or farmers whose integrity and practices they have learned to trust. The end consumer has no idea and cannot assess these practices and relationships. Table of Contents Introduction 1. What is Aromatherapy? 2. Essential Oils 3. Carrier Oils 4.

Hemp seeds are a gift of nature. They are the most nutritious seed in the world. Hemp seeds are a complete protein. They have the most concentrated balance of proteins, essential fats, vitamins, and enzymes combined with a relative absence of sugar, starches, and saturated fats. Hemp seeds are one of nature´s perfect foods - a super food. This is one of the most potent foods available, supporting optimal health and well being, for life. Raw hemp provides a broad spectrum of health benefits, including: weight loss, increased and sustained energy, rapid recovery from disease or injury, lowered cholesterol and blood pressure, reduced inflammation, improvement in circulation and immune system, as well as natural blood sugar control. Hemp belongs to the genus Cannabis sativa and has been cultivated for thousands of years as a source of fiber, edible seeds, edible oil, lubricant, and as a fuel. The oil contained in the hemp seed is 75-80% polyunsaturated fatty acids (the good fats) and only 9-11% of the lesser desired saturated fatty acids. Hemp seed oil is reputed to be the most unsaturated oil derived from the plant kingdom. The essential fatty acids (EFAs) contained in hemp seed oil are deemed essential because our bodies do not naturally produce them. This means that they must be obtained from the food we eat. Most health organizations agree that the human body needs a three- or four-to-one balance of omega-six over omega-three. Hemp seed is the only seed where this ideal balance occurs. It does not occur in flax, almond, walnut, soybean, or olive oil. Daily use of flax seed can lead to dangerous imbalances since flax seed oil has a balance of one-to-four instead of a healthy four-to-one omega-six over omega-three. EFAs are involved with producing life´s energy throughout the human body, and without them, life is not possible. In general, North Americans have a high dietary deficiency in EFAs due to their high intake of processed foods a 1. Language: English. Narrator: Yael Eylat-Tanaka.
