Author Becca Stevens calls herself a "snake oil seller" - she takes natural oils, mixes them with a good story, sells them in an open market and believes they help to heal the world. Becca is the founder of Thistle Farms, one of the most successful examples in the U.S. of a social enterprise whose mission is the work force. She is also the founder of its residential program, Magdalene.

The women of Magdalene and Thistle Farms have survived prostitution, trafficking and addiction, and the natural body care products they manufacture - including balms, soaps and lotions - aid in their own healing as well as that of the people who buy them. This book weaves together the beginnings of the enterprise with individual stories from Becca's own journey as well as 20 women in the community.

In Snake Oil: The Art of Healing and Truth-Telling, Becca tells how the women she began helping fifteen years ago have been the biggest source of her own healing from sexual abuse and her father's death as a child. Wise and reflective, Snake Oil offers an empowering narrative as well as a selection of recipes for healing remedies that you can make yourself.
