About twice a year, I clear out my bookshelves -- not because I *want* to, but because my bookshelves have limited space, so I've long-since resigned to the fact that I can only keep my absolute favorites.
One day I shall have my own giant personal library, with bookshelves lining the walls, but until that day, I can only keep the ones I use the most.

Most are in excellent condition, but there are a few with the odd dog-eared page here and there.

The following are available:

1. French Aromatherapy: Essential Oil Recipes & Usage Guide (2016) - Jen O'Sullivan

"The most comprehensive recipe and usage guides that utilizes the French Aromatherapy method. French Aromatherapy is the art of using essential oils that encompasses all methods of use: aromatic, topical, and internal. You will learn proper safety precautions and how to implement essential oils into your entire lifestyle. This book gives over 300 recipes to help you better understand and use your essential oils."

Three Books of Occult Philosophy (Llewellyn's Sourcebook) PLUS the Fourth Book of Occult Philosophy: Of Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa (Paperback – March 22, 2016).
Both books are in pristine condition.

"The Three Books of Occult Philosophy (De Occulta Philosophia libri III) was written in the 16th century by Henry Cornelius Agrippa. It involves the study of occult powers of ritual magic and its relationship with religion. This is a complete edition containing all three books combined. Book I. covers Natural Magic Book II. covers Celestial Magic Book III. covers Ceremonial Magic

The Fourth Book of Occult Philosophy must be first by the reader set aside from the triplicate works of Heinrich Agrippa, the famous Three Books of the same, by virtue of its manufacture- generally considered not to have been penned by Agrippa himself but rather by others influenced by his work. Running the gamut from celestial notations to summoning in a sense not normally seen until a century later, this fourth book is no less a genuine grimoire than any of the texts dubiously ascribed to Moses, Solomon, Adam, Hermes, and other major figures within Renaissance magick. Its pages contain a great deal of occult lore, especially with regards to the classification of, and sigils made for, various spiritual entities- both divine and infernal, as well as those natural forces usually classed aside from both of the same."

3. Jambalaya: The Natural Woman's Book of Personal Charms and Practical Rituals - Luisah Teish

"A Marvelous Blend of Memoir, Folk Wisdom, and Afro-American Beliefs.
Actress, storyteller, and priestess Luisah Teish dramatically re-creates centuries-old African-American traditions with music, memoir, and folk wisdom."
