‘Natural Hair Care’ by Susan Hollister is a cute audio book how to look after your hair. It is valuable source of information how herbs, natural oils, vinegars and others substance help your hair.
Susan gives a lots of creative, traditional and crazy recipes and remedies to keep your hair strong, healthy, shining and well styling. I am just stunned how easy you can make rich conditioner using eggs, honey, olive oils. I never heard about Castile soap so will be great to experiment with it to give extra foam to your shampoo. If you want to be eco-friendly try formula ‘No-poo’ that is foam free and natural solution for your hair. Susan provides lots of recipes for this king of formula.
I like the idea of henna rinse and apple cider vinegar as a treatment for greasy and coloured dark hair. Also interesting is yarrow shampoo for greasy hair as well as green tea shampoo or rinse. I have lots of herbs to experiment and Susan gives me inspiration to do and try. Funny are myth about hair, how it grows, getting grey or split or how frequently you need to wash them.
Prepare my first shampoo gives me and my kids lots of fun! Thank you Susan.

‘Ketogenic diet’ by Susan Hollister is a very fresh and new way of dieting. It is great diet for meat lover’s. Susan provides delicious recipes what are healthy and tasty. Especially worth is to practice to prepare lean meat like beef or pork steak, chicken tights, poultry, fish and salad.
Good idea is to cook on crock pot, as meat are tender and juicy with beautiful aroma. Very healthy option are soups. I especially love broccoli or cauliflower cream. I was very surprised when you don’t have to avoid sour cream or double cream to yours soup. Also eggs are very recommended. So enjoy your bacon, green beans, macaroni and cheese. Lovely is Turkish lamb with low-carb pita, that you can make yourself at home, the same like a bread. I have never tried a pumpkin soup an can’t wait to make it. Thank you Susan for interesting recipes and description how ketogenic diet works.

I especially love hostas with beautiful, rich leaves but I just hate when slugs eaten them. I don’t try to spread sand around it, but it looks simple and more natural than blue pellets that I really afraid because kids and animals can accidentally taste.
Also I never know that I shouldn’t cut dried steams of tulips as they may never grow again.So I won’t do it anymore.
Susan gives very practical advices also what to do with perennial herbs, how to cut them and what are they favourite position. I love natural medicine so always have herbs in my garden but sometimes they just too poor and have insects on them. I am looking for more audiobooks by Susan Hollister about gardening and how to naturally prevent plants from aphides, slugs and others insects.

‘Quit drinking’ by Susan Hollister is a very motivational and inspirational audio book. It is helpful to find out many solution, tips and advices how to stop drinking and be more positive. If you are drinking and feel bad enough with that it is time to limit your alcohol usage per day. Gail is a very good narrator with interesting reading manner.
Susan helps you to create healthy environment like start some sport, good diet, plenty of water or even a dog. I think dog is a great friend and helps you to go out more instead of drink. Also spend time with people who doesn’t like to drink much can be helpful, especially children or grandparents. Susan advices to keep yourself busy, recommended great movies about alcoholic problems and lots of topic to discuss and read about.
Most important is to find interesting hobbies and relaxing duties that prevent you from drinking. Shows you right way to detox and if necessary AA strategies or help from specialist.
