BOOK RECOMMENDATION – NATURALLY GORGEOUS

It’s time for another book recommendation, and this one I read in like 1-2 days, it is exactly what I LOVE to read about: health and beauty and natural ingredients which doesn’t harm you or the planet. The book is called Naturally Gorgeous and is written by Charlotte Vøhtz which is also the creator behind the brand Green People. I really find Charlotte’s story inspirering, she started her brand Green People because her daughter got eczema and they couldn’t find any products which she could use, so Charlotte created her own brand.

I got this as a birthday present from my sweet friend Ida, and she really knows me, because if I should have written a book, then this is basically what I would have written. It’s all about avoiding toxic ingredients in your skincare and food, eating nourishing food, drinking water and herbal teas, lots of suggestions for natural skincare, recommendation for dry brushing, DIY recipes for skincare products etc. You get the drill.

If you love natural skincare and beauty as much as I do, and I almost bet you do if you follow me either here on my blog or on Instagram, then you would for sure love this book as well.

 

English version of the book: Naturally Gorgeous – Essential Health and Beauty Secrets*

BOOK RECOMMENDATION – EARTH IS HIRING

It’s time for another book recommendation, and this time I want to recommend you the book “Earth is Hiring”.

I recently finished the book “Earth is Hiring – the new way to live, lead, earn, give for millennial and anyone who gives a sh*t* by Peta Kelly the other day, and wauw. Amazing! If you are interested in sustainability, changing the world for the better, creative ways of working and living – then this book is for you.

It is such a down-to-Earth book which tells all about how to live a better life in alignment with new values, which is what the Earth needs to survive. It’s all about how we can create businesses and lives which makes us and Mother Nature thrive, and which doesn’t cause harm to the Planet, and in that way ensures that there will be a planet for future generations.

I don’t want to give away too much of the book, because you should read it and enjoy it. But Peta surely is one amazingly inspirering human-being and while reading the book I got so inspired, and uplifted and ensured that I can literally do and work with whatever I want – and I want that to be something positive, healthy and something which helps humans and the Earth.

Quote from the book:

“How does it get any better than this? With this question, you will invite in more of all that is good. You’ll invite in more love, more success, more abundance, and more happiness and joy. You’ll keep yourself on your super highway to alignment and in your flowing tap”

BOOK RECOMMENDATION – THE FOUR AGREEMENTS

A little while ago I read the book “The Four Agreements*” by Don Miguel Ruiz, and wauw. I’ve had this book on my reading list for such a long time, and it is such a light an easy read so I don’t know why I’ve waited so long, but I do believe in timing, and it was the perfect time to read it, it really got me.

 

Don Miguel Ruiz writes about 4 fundamental life lessons in his book “The Four Agreements”, which in all its simplicity are some very simple life lessons, yet this is something we tend to forget about all the time. But, getting reminded of these things and seeing them in such a simple way really makes a difference. It lights you up and makes you feel good, and really shows you how you can change your own world by changing your perception about life.

I don’t want to give away too much, or say what these life lessons are, because I do believe there was something very special about reading the book and seeing these for yourself, and I don’t want to give that away. But, I will give you a little inspirering quote from the book:

 

“The word is pure magic – the most powerful gift we have as humans – and we use it against ourselves”

 

All I can say is that I definitely recommend this book. It is beautiful and so full of wisdom which we could all benefit from becoming aware of and knowing (and using).

 

Have you read the book? What did you think about it? If you have any other book recommendations, please let me know and I’ll add it to my never-ending-reading-list!

MY FAVOURITE HEALTH BOOKS

I was asked the other day if I wanted to share some of my favourite health books, and of course I want do! Health is one of my biggest passions in life. I LOVE to read about it, watch documentaries about it etc. and learn new information. I’ve read several books about this subject, but these are some of my absolutely favourite ones. There are books about hormones, what food to eat to make your skin look beautiful, what food is good for improving digestion, natural contraception methods, yoga and ayurveda, herbs and just learning more about what food to eat, and what food to eat less of, if you want to have a healthy body.

 

1. Womancode – Alisa Vitti*
I read this book recently, and I love it. I feel like I’ve learned SO much about women’s cycles in it, and how to stabilise hormones and avoid hormonal imbalance. Definitely a must-read for women, especially if you are just getting off the birth control pill and want to stabilise your hormones back to normal again.

2. Beauty foods – Sally Walker & Laura Bonné*
I love to read about what specific foods does for our body, our health and how we look. This book goes into depth with different food which is amazing to eat for our health and how we look.

3. Hormonel harmoni – Caroline Fibæk & Stine Fürst*
If you want to learn more about stabilising your hormones, or finding out what kind of hormonal imbalances you might have, then this book is great. It also has a little test where you can identify where you might have a hormonal imbalance.

4. Taking charge of your fertility – Toni Weschler*
When I first started thinking about quitting the birth control pill, I lend this book from my friend, and wow. This was when I started to learn about more natural ways of protecting yourself from getting pregnant, and just in general learn more about the female body and the cycle.

5. Et Pukka Liv – Sebastian Pole*
The founder behind the Pukka tea brand wrote this lovely book (A Pukka Life) about health, ayurveda, herbs and their benefits.

6. Food Pharmacy – Mia Clase & Lina Aurell*
A lovely book about what food to eat if you really want to be healthy, you’ll learn a lot more about probiotics, vegetables and much more.

7. Begynderyogabogen – Karen Pallisgaard*
If you are new to yoga, or want to learn about ayurveda, then this book is amazing. So easy to read, and yet filled with so much good information. I’m such a fan of Karen’s books, also Langsom Livsstil.

8. Medical Medium Life-Changing Foods – Anthony Williams*
This book is also about how food can change your life and make you healthy. It describes different food and how it affects your body and your health.

9. How Not to Die – Michael Greger*
If you’re interested in a plant based diet, this is probably one of the books most people will recommend you to read. Michael Greger is one of the ‘big nutritionists’ in the plant based field and have written this amazing book. The book comes with so much scientific evidence for how only a diet can prevent and reverse many of the causes of diseases-related death. Another one is The China Study by T. Collin Campbell & Thomas M. Campell, which is about a study made in China which showed how diet affected health.

I hope you can find some inspiration, and please also share your favourite health books with me – I’m constantly on the hunt for new amazing books to read!
