What readers are saying about the Essential Oil Reference Guide
This is a great book. It is very convenient and love all the extra information--tips to use, oils in blends listed in Appendix, then singles listed and the blends and products it is in. The book is indexed by ailment is great for quick reference. Ex: Colds: suggestions--RC, etc. It does have small print, so if you have problems with small print get the Bigger one.
I think I prefer the new version as compared to the 2012 edition. It has the most popular oil listed first to use on the recommendations. It also has convenient icons next to the oils recommended on how to use it in the 13th edition (2012). A- Aromatic, D- Diffuse, T- Topically.
Great for travel. A real learning guide.
It does recommend Young Living oils because health food store oils have chemicals and should not be used (warnings on health food store bottles) to get relief from any ailments. Young Living oils are 100% pure (no warning labels)therapeutic grade essential oils, so you can use them as the book suggests and get great results. I use the book and the oils. I disagree with other reviewer. I used previous oil brands in soap making (almost 13 years) and I can tell a REAL difference in concentration and how my nose can tell a difference NOW--and my skin. I have very sensitive skin, and I use the Young Living oils==all ways suggested and some internally, too. ~ Danielle T Jackson-- Blog-- Blessing Others Through Young Living Oils.
This book has been on my wish list for many years, but I didn't buy it because there were always more pressing things to spend my money on. Now that I finally have it in my hands, I wonder how I could have lived without it! It's a FANTASTIC guide to essential oils, particularly those sold by Young Living. You can look up symptoms in the index and find out which oils best suit them; how and where to apply the oils and way more. Now whenever one of my friends or neighbors is complaining of an ailment, I have something concrete to offer! If you're a believer in essential oils and want to know how to use them more widely, this is the only guide you'll ever need!
I have used this book so much since it came. I have many of the Young Living essential oils and have been able to use them for many more things than I had originally thought. I highly recommend this book.
I also ordered the smaller version called the Quick reference guide. I keep it in my car or purse if I need a lighter load and want to share it to help. ~ Barbara H. LaFond
I had purchased essential oils & this was a very detailed book on how to use the oils. If I need to research it can be done by ailment or condition or by the type of oil. If you are looking to use medicinal oils this is the book to purchase. Sue
My wife's new "bible". She's constantly in this guide and our family is benefitting tremendously from it. Very informative. Explains the origin of natural oils, the science behind it and how best to apply. Has a section on what each oil is best for, one for what oil to use for almost any problem or desired help, and other sections to easily answer almost every question that one could imagine about essential oils. EXTREMELY helpful and well worth the money. If you have any interest in essential oils, this is the book for you. ~ Aaron
This little book packs a lot of info in it! There's everything you'll need for a quick reference or for the beginner. ~ Laurie
