For owners of previous editions of the Essential Oils Desk Reference, this new and expanded edition will be a treat. The black and white photos have been replaced by full-color photos and this edition includes new essential oils from Ecuador. For beginning oil users or for people who are ready to switch from recreational essential oils to therapeutic grade essential oils, the Essential Oils Desk Reference is the single best essential oils reference work in the English language, in my opinion. Medical doctors refer to the Physicians Desk Reference and serious essential oil users refer to the Essential Oils Desk Reference or EDR for short. For the beginner or for people who have been buying other essential oil books, the 588 pages of this book can seem overwhelming at first. When I¿m teaching people how to use it, I divide it into five main sections. 1. Introduction 2. Essential Oils and Essential Oil Products 3. Education 4. Health Issues and Essential Oil Recommendations 5. Appendices and Index Most people use parts 2 and 4 most. The quickest way to get started is to begin with the index and look for the essential oil or health issue that interests you. If multiple pages are given, look first for the page listed in bold. People of all ages are using this valuable book. The EDR is based on the assumption that you are using therapeutic grade essential oils, so please do not try some of its recommendation unless the oils you are using are at least AFNOR or ISO certified. Therapeutic grade essential oils are ideal. If you are using essential oils that have merely ¿pure¿ on the label, you¿re doing so at your own risk. I keep my hardcover edition of the EDR within reach in my office and the smaller spiral-bound edition in my briefcase. In this single volume, you will find almost everything you want to know about safely using essential oils for yourself and those you care about. Highly recommended!

I love the thoroughness of this book. I already own several books on essential oils but this one completes my collection, as it holds information on the active chemicals within the essential oils that give them their unique and extremely helpful properties. Living in northern Utah, I noticed that this book refers to many products made by Young Living Essential Oils, a company based in Lehi, Utah. They are toted as being a high-quality distributor of essential oils and natural skin and health products.

I particularly like the descriptions, actions, and indications of the single oils. Although one must know as good as this book is, it is a Young Living book. It tells about their products, all of them and their essential blends. They may be biased. I did enjoy the book.

I started school using this textbok, and my Edition 4 (2007) is older than the other students who purchased at ESP. I don't think there was a huge change, but that newer publication has plates showing oil association to chakras for example. Other than this cautionary note, this is a fabulous book.

The book is well done, easy to read and understand. If you are into herbs and natural healing this is the book.

This book has to be the most informative reference book for essential oils that I've found yet. It always has what I need. Complete with chemical breakdowns and even an illness crossreference, I use this book like a bible or a dictionary--all the time! 'I highly recommend using the high-quality 'Young Living' Oils in conjuction with this book'
