"Natural and Holistic Health Books that Improve Your Well-Being"

I'm a firm believer that books can dramatically improve your well-being. Not only that, but these books should be affordable, easy to read and have ideas that are easy to apply so you can reap the benefits as you go about your life on a daily basis. My books are produced with these goals in mind.

My name is Jessica Jacobs. I'm a Wife, Mother, reader, writer, well-being enthusiast and a curious person. I began publishing my writing in 2012 and this path has truly been a labor of love for me.

I always wanted to share what I had learned through my curiosity when it came to topics such as Soap Making, Natural Remedies and Body Butters. My interests are always evolving but at my core, I believe that doing things the Natural Way can lead to some amazing long-term benefits.

Over the years, I've been able to save money, become more efficient and feel much healthier all by applying what I write about in my books.

So, thank-you for checking out my page. As an independent author, your support is greatly appreciated and I promise to live up to your trust in me by continuing to produce high-quality, affordable books that will help you.

Feel free to scroll down and check out all the books I've written.

I received a free review copy of the Kindle version of Household DIY from the author.

The Kindle book is 26 pages long with app 21 pages of content. Suggested do-it-yourself items include removing stains from marble counter tops, to making your own dishwater detergent, to keeping ants out of your home, to craft suggestions using everyday supplies. There are dozens and dozens of suggestions to keep up you and your house much more cheaper and more natural.

Some of the suggestions contained in the book are essentially common knowledge to those of us who have been performing DIY around the house for years. My wife already makes our own hand soap, clothes washer detergent and fabric softener, and household cleansers, but others were new to me. I especially liked the suggestion on how to remove counter top stains as I was unaware of any way to remove these and using coffee grounds as a natural barrier to ant intrusions was very clever.

Although I thought the content of the book was spot on and helpful, I did have some minor negative comments. The amount of content is somewhat limited, but then I think people would expect that for something costing $0.99 so this is just an observation. The other thing I noticed was that the Amazon page says that there the book is 35 pages when its actually 26. Of those 26 pages, about 21 pages are filled with content - the other 5 are the cover, TOC, the authors other books and a VERY LONG commercial for another author. This last item is extremely odd and out of place and at two full pages accounts for almost 10% of the entire book. To each his own I guess...

This Kindle book is a short, useful guide to many easy projects you can do at home. Included in the book are recipes for removing stains, mildew and odors from furniture, sinks and tile, and from the refrigerator. There are sections on organic gardening and repairing and refinishing furniture at home. You will save money and also guard your health while avoiding harmful chemicals when you make the homemade deodorant, toothpaste, lotion and laundry soap detailed in this book.

I have used the recipes for toothpaste and deodorant for several years, and have also used the recipe for homemade laundry detergent. I like knowing I can make these items at home - they work as well as commercial products, and are safer for my family.

For anyone who likes to do projects at home, or who is concerned about the unpronounceable chemicals in most toiletries, this book will teach you how to DIY while saving you money.

If you're moving into an apartment or house for the first time, put this book on your must-have list. It's jam-packed with bits of information, techniques, and recipes from household items for cleaning and repairing just about anything (like marble!). Never wear smelly clothes and make Mr. Clean jealous at the same time. When you come across a problem (and this is nothing new to the new or even experience homeowner), this book probably shows a means of resolving it. Jacobs knows homes and knows how to keep you in shape by using your resources.

This is a short book of hints for people new to DIY. I liked the history of DIY, though I suspect that people from earlier generations would be amused that doing things yourself is considered a genre.

I will be trying the mint solution on the gophers that insist on aerating my lawn. And I will pass on a tip about chalk which I find works quite well. I had ants coming in the light switch by the entrance. I took the switch plate cover off and drew a complete chalk circle around the cutout. Haven't had an ant come in that way ever since.

I'm glad you said that you had tried all of these things to see if they were effective. Thanks for the freebie, too.

I'm new to the whole DIY universe, so this book has been a great help for me. It gives a good introduction to the topic and is certainly worthwhile for any future home maker. It is a short book, but a solid starting point.

A lot of the hints are common sense but some are brand new ideas. The toothpaste is a good idea as well as the rodent repellent. Overall it's a great book.
