only for the unwitting
The basic premise of this book is that we should buy essential oils because they're in the Bible. The only trouble is that the aromatic oils mentioned in the Bible were not essential oils: Essential oils are made by distillation; distillation didn't exist in Biblical times; and the process of infusion (which *was* in use in Biblical times) yields oils with very different properties than the process of distillation. In short, if you're looking for authentic information about Biblical aromatics and/or health care, this book is not what you want; in fact it's just plain misleading.
