Right out of the chute, I must tell you that I’m a huge fan of 2 of the 3 authors of this book, and have been an essential oils fan for many years. I share this book because I have seen results first hand, and if nothing else, you’ll enjoy how quality oils smell so authentic!
Just as the title success this book is straight-forward and to the point. The focus of this book is built on the foundation that essential oils are one of the most powerful forms of plant-based medicine. Each author shares their compelling history on how they discovered essential oils and how they have integrated the practice into their lives.
This book is objectively written from a Biblical worldview. However, the authors’ practical approach makes it a great resource for those who may not prefer the ancient text. I believe everyone who reads it will find it an informative, useful, and inspiring reference.
Organized in 5 parts, the table of contents is detailed yet concise.
Part 1. Essential Oil Foundations
Part 2 Single Essential Oils and Carrier oils.
Part 3 Conditions
Part 4 Special areas of Essential Oil Use
Part 5 Essential Oil recipes.
Right out of the mailbox you can feel the weight of it’s 500 plus pages. Whether you’ve enjoyed essential oils for years, or don’t know where to begin, you’ll be drawn in by the photo’s layout and information. The concepts are well defined and well structured. When Allison Broochey designed this book, she balanced colors, contrast, and concise info that will tempt you to turn each page.
There is a simple easy to accomplish recipe section on health & healing. Although abundant in over 70 recipes, I would like to have seen more food recipes included.
This book is not a comprehensive encyclopedia, but a great book to build your foundation. I’ve read several books on oils, each with a different emphasis. Of the stack of essential oil books on my shelf, this is the one I’ll recommend to my friends.
This book would be a treasured gift for anyone who enjoys the benefits of essential oils, wants to expand their knowledge and application, or just enjoys the basics of natural living.
