For 3 years I’ve bought almost every Ultimate Bundle that the Ultimate Bundle People put together. I love the depth of resources, the quality ebooks and online classes, and the caliber of authors that they bring together. Yes, it’s true, I really love them.
And the value is incredible. For a very small sum, they pull together thousands of dollars worth of resources. This year’s Healthy Living Bundle, for instance is worth $2140. Isn’t that crazy? I’d buy it just for the frugal triumph — it feels so right. And I hope you love it, too.
It’s not just a bunch of ebooks. There are online classes and actual product bonuses, too. I do a lot of my Christmas shopping with the coupons and products offered. Last year I bought all three of my adult children a family set of glass straws from Strawesome, using the coupon that came with the 2014 Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle. True the coupon didn’t cover the whole invoice but Strawesome straws are such a great eco-friendly and healthy choice that it made an appreciated gift for my lovely family. My daughter in law, loved the set of black glass straws I got her to match her kitchen. (Getting a discount was a bonus.)
Every single resource in every single bundle isn’t for me. I’m now past my child bearing years, for instance, so the herbal cures for morning sickness books aren’t written with me in mind. But, I find enough awesomeness in each bundle to learn from and to grow in my ability to defend my family from sickness. The bundles have helped me make informed choices about herbal remedies, essential oils, my garden, and my diet. I don’t get through every book in the bundle, but I do read every single one in the categories I’m loving the most.
My part in this project
It’s been my goal to be good enough to be a contributor to one of the bundles. And this one is my project. But it isn’t just that my book is in the bundle. I’m a collaborator, too.
Let me highlight just my favorite categories of this Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle that I’m so proud to be a part of:
This is where you’ll find my book , The Beginners’ Book of Essential Oils, available in pdf, Kindle, and ePub. My book looks at the first 10 essential oils that every oiler should master and helps you get to mastery. Even experienced oilers found things they didn’t know in my book . I’m very proud that it made the cut for this year’s Healthy Living Bundle. I think you’ll find it a great resource to help you get the very best out of your essential oil investments. ($9.97 value)
A few of the other books in the category of essential oils
Detox Your Home Handbook by Katie at Wellness Mama, a beautiful book with a positive, can-do tone, that will help you save money, save time, and make your home more healthy by making your own natural cleaning products. ($19 value).
Simple Handcrafted Body Care by Kendra at A Sonoma Garden, is another really beautiful book. The recipes are easy and straightforward. They are the kind that will help you reduce your reliance on over the counter creams, shampoo, and toiletries. You’ll save more money and find healthier choices for products you are buying now. ($6 value.)
Simple Scrubs to Make and Give ($3.99 value), and Gift It From Scratch: Cleaning Products Edition ($4.50 value) will help you get a headstart on your DiY Christmas plans. You’ll find something here for all the friends on your list. Adult family members will enjoy some of these recipes, too. Or why not just buy them a bundle on a thumb drive for Christmas, and let them make their own. It could be life changing.
There are two online classes in this category, too.
Essential Oils for Families from Vintage Remedies ($125 value)
How to Protect Your Family from Colds and Flu using Essential Oils from Aromahead Institute ($50 value)
I’ve already signed up for both of these and I’m looking forward to learning from these professional aromatherapists and natural health experts.
Plus one of the bonuses in this year’s bundle is a free Essential Oil Pack that includes the first 3 beginner oils that I recommend in my book : Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint. ($25 value). See what I mean when I say you are going to LOVE this?
Here’s all the resources just in the Essential Oil Section of this year’s Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle

Natural Remedies — my story
About 25 years ago I was very ill. I had suffered through 5 baby losses and was at the lowest point in my life. Because of deep, suicidal depression I was on so many psychotropic prescriptions my pharmacist didn’t want to fill them, for fear of killing me. I went through 3 rounds of electric shock treatments, of 12 to 15 induced brain seisures each. It was barbaric. The treatments didn’t help but they made the psychiatrist lots of money.
The drugs and shock treatments ruined my health. I couldn’t absorb any nutrients from my food and rapidly lost weight. In 1994, at 92 lbs. my life was hanging by a thread. At that point something clicked. What we were doing to help me heal — doctors’ appointments, drugs, psychotherapy wasn’t working. I fired the psychiatrist, changed GPs, and went off all medication, cold turkey, with the support of a new doctor. I was diagnosed with Celiac disease. My depression magically turned around when I changed my diet and tossed the pills.
The transformation was so complete and so dramatic. In just a couple months I was a different person. I actually felt empowered. I started organic gardening, growing herbs, and learning all I could about herbal remedies, and essential oils. I never went back there, to that chronically depressed state again. Natural remedies, eating organically, using essential oils, and getting the toxins out of my home literally saved my life.
This is where I came from. This is why I’m so evangelistic about natural remedies and essential oils. I know if it did this for me, it can do it for you, too. And while I didn’t have a Healthy Living Bundle to guide my steps back then, The Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle makes learning these things more focused and more affordable.
In this Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle you’ll find these Natural Remedy resources
Inflammation Free Zone from Bee happy Life ($47 value) — reducing inflammation is the primary way to allow your body to begin to heal. Inflammation is the beginning of many chronic disease processes.
The Paleo Approach to Dental Health from Eric Stein ($2.99 value) — Eric was fired by his dentist. This was his solution.
Heal Your Gut from Lee at Supercharged Foods ($79 value)
The herbal remedies section also includes a one year membership to the Herbarium from the Herbal Academy of New England. I’ve been a Herbarium member since they opened and I visit there at couple times a month. I use their searchable data base for research for my writing. There’s several high quality ebooks (21 at this count) within the Herbarium membership site that you can freely download, too. The Herbarium membership is worth every penny of its $45. value. And it’s included in the bundle.
Here are the resources in just the Herbal Remedies and Natural Health section of the Healthy Living Bundle.

Homesteading, organic gardening, raising chickens, and the whole DiY lifestyle is empowering. It’s been called the “Good Life” and the “Simple Life,” and the “Self Sufficient Life.” Really it’s the way humans lived for thousands of years. And there is an intrinsic desire to go back to that Eden. To reconnect with our human beginning in the garden. These Ultimate Bundle Resources will help.
The Simplest of Gardens by Christy Greer ($3.99 value) shows you how to grow a container garden of herbs and salad greens, while you learn to garden.
The Shoestring Garden by Claudia Brownlie ($10.95 value) has frugal tips to help you garden and save money, too.
And when you are ready to add chickens to your homestead, Chicken Hot Topics by Jess Lane ($6.95 value) will give you advice based on scientific studies and her own experience.
Food Preservation Made Simple ($3.95 value) and Oh, Lardy’s guide to Fermenting Fruits and Vegetables ($9.99 value) will both help you in your efforts to put-food-by for winter. I know you’ll love the recipes.
Jill Winger’s Your Custom Homestead ($8.99 value) is one I’m looking forward to reading.
This bundle will help you not make the mistakes that I made when we bought our first acreage back in 1983. It took this City Girl over 25 years to learn from my mistakes, the things you’ll learn about wise homesteading and smart gardening from this Bundle.
One of the bonuses for this bundle is a free Craftsy course. There are several gardening courses in the offering that look promising. I’m especially interested in two of these — Growing Better Greens and The Extended Harvest, growing vegetables in every season. (The bundle costs less than buying the Craftsy course so maybe I should just buy two bundles.)
And that’s not all
And this just scratches the surface. Other categories in the bundle include, Allergy-free cooking, Real Food, Natural Home, Healthy Kids, Paleo Cooking, and Fitness and Weightloss. The total value of books and courses is $1915.
I’ll think you’ll agree that this year’s Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle is the best yet. And if the books weren’t enough. There are over $200 worth of bonuses (including those Craftsy classes I mentioned) to sweeten the pot. These include actual physical products like natural cleaners from ePantry, and the essential oils set I mentioned above. This makes the total value of this year’s bundle $2,140 — It’s a steal (er…um…Frugal Triumph).
