Esencia de la Aromaterapia: Magia, Leyendas y Tradiciones

Dona Carolina Da Silva, Author, Carolina Da Silva, Author Llewellyn Espanol $9.95 (156p) ISBN 978-1-56718-238-5
Actually written by Dona Carolina da Silva's granddaughter, Carolina da Silva, these two books answer questions surrounding the guidance of angels and the healing powers of plants and fruits. A professor of Spanish literature in Colorado and a Wicca practitioner, Carolina has searched for her Latina and indigenous roots. Her late grandmother, La Dona, was once an herbalist and healer who lived in New Mexico and communicated with nature and the animals. These books are part of an ongoing series in which Carolina relates the mysteries of the occult as learned from this gifted healer. Deeply informative and laced with humor, their interactions and dialogs often occur by arroyos (streams) or on mountaintops. These conversations result in recipes and rituals, invocations and offerings, secrets and traditions from diverse belief systems, all grounded in science and history. These mini-encyclopedias can be treated as manuals or simply enjoyed. As the author warns, ""You are not authorized to discuss what you've learned from your guardian angel or else the magic disappears."" Recommended to public libraries and bookstores.
