4 out of 5 stars

This book begins with an explanation of what essential oils are, how they are manufactured, and safety precautions for their use. There are lists of basic equipment, types of applications, blends and dilutions that can be used.

The next sections detail types of carrier oils and essential oils with all their properties, uses, and precautions. There are even suggested substitutes for each oil in case you don’t have it.

The last section is divided into recipes and blends for physical and mental health, for the home and family, and for personal care. The recipes include soaps, salves, compresses, throat gargle, deodorant, lip balm, facial cleanser, moisturizer.
Their uses include relief from pain, stress, cough, congestion, nausea, eczema, headache, insomnia, and dozens more.
Each recipe has clear instructions with tips and hints for getting the best results from the essential oils. All the information appears reliable and safe. The author seems very knowledgeable, and I trust their writing.

I can’t wait to try out some of these helpful essential oil recipes! The fragrance blends sound wonderful, and very practical for health and well-being.
