    Useful reference guide for treatment of ailments

    The best part of the book is the section dedicated to using essential oils for a variety of ailments. For instance, I knew that certain oils are good for a headache, but the book goes into detail about the mix and ratios of oils to use for specific types of headaches (cluster, tension, sinus). I’ll keep this in my medicine cabinet beside my oils as an everyday reference guide for treatment of flu, muscle aches, tooth pain and other ailments.

    I would rate this book an 8.5 out of 10. It covers a wide variety of topics such as how to use each essential oil, thorough guidelines on how to prepare essential oils and how to apply them topically and orally, etc etc etc! There was a lot of useful information and history about many of the essential oils. However some downfalls were the lack of pictures and small variety of oils. There were NO pictures at all, but luckily I know a little about essential oils so it was not completely horrible. Overall I’d give the book an A- .

    For anyone even mildly interested in the world of essential oils

    For anyone even mildly interested in the world of essential oils, this book provides an interesting and
    informative presentation of the historical development and use of these ever more popular products.  
    Delve into the world of the Romans and their oily extractions used in massage, or visit India and the
    birth of Ayurveda.  Chapters on specific oils in cleaning, cosmetics, and more, provide guidelines for
    home preparation.  The glossary and chapter on resources for anyone who wishes to venture into creating
    one’s own apothecary are detailed and helpful.

    This book is full of scientific and historical info, and teaches you the basics of essential oils before delving into recipes and medicinal uses. It’s pretty much all you need if you’re getting started in this world. What I didn’t like were the unfounded medicinal claims - just because something has been used in traditional medicine doesn’t mean it actually cures anything, so use common sense here. Love the natural cleaners, though.

    This is a useful guidebook when beginning with essential oils. It covers methods of preparation, how to ensure you're purchasing the highest quality, custom blending and how to effectively use each blend. The section on blending is thorough, and explains the many methods of mixing different sources for aromatherapy. The second half of the book is a great reference on herbs and oils, and includes not only common uses such as well-being and cosmetics, but also details how to create great bonus items like pet products, bug spray and candles.

    Not too long ago I had a rather unsightly and itchy rash on my face that seemed to defy any remedy I tried. Then my sister put me on to tea tree oil. I washed my skin with a soap made from tea tree oil and also applied a small amount of the oil afterwards. Almost instantaneously, I could feel results. It looked and felt better. That experience piqued my interest in herbal medicine as an alternative to costly and often ineffective prescriptions. I found this book, Essential Oils for Beginners, The Guide to Get Started with Essential Oils and Aromatherapy, to be an invaluable resource in learning more about how to use essential oils in my daily life.
