Explore wellbeing, expand your knowledge and stay up to date on the latest industry trends and experts with FMTV’s ever-expanding library of wellness content. From eye-opening documentaries to recipe tutorials to yoga classes and exclusive expert interviews, there’s always something new to watch.



rosemaryherbalrecipesbookHerbal Recipes for Vibrant Health by Rosemary Gladstar: If you only buy one book to learn about making your own remedies and beauty products, make it this one!  This book is packed with easy to access information divided into sections like stress, beauty, children, men and elders.  And is really recipe-focused, so you can get started making products right away.  Rosemary also has a wonderful holistic perspective on health and life.  If you like my blog, you’ll love this  book.



New_Year_New_You_Affiliate_Banners_250x250_girlInstitute for Integrative NutritionWhen I got serious about turning my interest in natural health & beauty into a career, I signed up for this health coach training program.  I’ve met many of my closest friends, supporters and advocates through this program, and really recommend it.




Natural Beauty Supplies + Ingredients

  • Mountain Rose Herbs:  My top recommendation for all herbs, butters, oils and product making supplies.  They also have gorgeous pre-blended herbal teas.  Based in the US.
  • Aromantic : UK-based supplier for herbs, butters, oils and packaging.  You can order in any quantity from small to massive!
  • Neals Yard Remedies: UK-based supplier for dried herbs, tinctures and product-making supplies in small quantities.  If you’re in the UK and just want to try making a few products, pop into a Neals Yard shop to pick up some ingredients.  That’s how I got started!
