As an inmate support service, we provide oils to inmates. All prayer oils are musk and 100% alcohol free (CDCR Requirement). Musk is a class of aromatic substances commonly used as base notes in perfumery. They include glandular secretions and similar fragrances, and artificial substances with similar odors.

These oils are similar in fragrances and odors that you are familiar with. The colognes pictured are for recognition purposes only.

Inmates will tell you that boredom is the biggest issue for them to deal with. There is a huge amount of idle time and one of the best ways to occupy one’s time and mind is through reading. Even people who were never big readers on the outside can get distracted with a good book.

All inmates have interests of some kind and a good story that grabs hold of you can literally help you “escape” from life in prison. Reading relaxes you, reading educates you, reading makes you think and reading allows you to dream.

Whether your loved one reads to escape, to learn something new, or to shed a few tears, or just for fun, we’ll have a great book for him or her each month.

Money on Books’ has made buying a book for your loved one as easy as the click of the mouse. We are affiliated with Amazon.com, the world’s largest bookseller, allowing us to become an approved method of sending books into correctional facilities.

Gift Cards
There’s time when an inmate wants to give more than just a greeting card that he got from canteen.  He knows that he has a little money save up on his MOB Trust Account, and his children or child birthday is coming up.  How do he get that bike his child asked for, the last time he called home?

Now an inmate can go through Money on Books and have a gift card from Toys-R-Us sent to his child, so that he can get that bike.

Using gift cards is one of the easiest ways for an inmate to stay in contact with his family and friends.  Gift Cards are the most comprehensive gift for an inmate to give.  Over 50,000 gift cards available from hundreds of different merchants, you won’t have any trouble getting the cards for your family and friends.
