    I picked up this little book on a whim and was quickly staggered by how much I didn’t know. I think I’d heard somewhere that a few drops of peppermint oil on a cloth held near the nose can help to settle your stomach and prevent nausea. However, I had no idea that valerian, for example, had such a deep sedative effect that recipients of massage therapy with this oil are cautioned against driving or using machinery for eight hours after exposure.

The camphorous aroma of spike lavender could lead to seizures and those who suffer from headaches should steer clear of ylang ylang’s strong scent or the sweet floral appeal of jasmine. This book is concise and informative, with photographs, scent synopses and instructions on proper use for each essential oil.

    good information on the use of essential oils for massage, bath and aromatherapy. Gives insight into how to massage, use oils in baths and other healing methods. The biggest part is left for single essential oils where the author gives information to safety, use, origin and characteristics of them. This is definitely one I would buy!

    For my purposes, this is THE book on essential oils.

    This is a beautiful book with tons of good information and easy to read. Great pictures also. A great reference for anyone who is interested in essential oils and aromatherapy. So much I did not know. I won my book from Goodreads Giveaways. I would recommend this book to my friends.

    Fantastic information. I also like the way it is arranged with history, chemistry, and definitive tips up front, followed by carriers and eos. Excellent reference.

    Not enough on how to use them in diffusers...

    For books about essential oils and how to use them, it isn't bad. But it's not great, either. The author did some explaining in regards to the relationship of essential oils to the body, and how to use them for aromatherapy. She also covered some application techniques (massage, vaporizing, and compresses.) But when they got to the essential oils themselves, I felt the book was lacking. I've come across much more exhaustive information in other guides. Harding stuck to the 'emotional' and aromath For books about essential oils and how to use them, it isn't bad.

She also covered some application techniques (massage, vaporizing, and compresses.) But when they got to the essential oils themselves, I felt the book was lacking. I've come across much more exhaustive information in other guides. Harding stuck to the 'emotional' and aromatherapy benefits of oils in this book (providing information like "this oil promotes well-being," and "this oil reduces stress.") There were some mentions of how certain oils help coughs/chest colds, and digestive issues, but the information tapered off from there. Essential oils can do so much more than is mentioned in this book. Really what I wanted was a completely different oils guide, so I'm moving on from here.

    A very informative little book. It has a little about each oil, where it comes from, what it smells like. Then a bit of safety information, toxic or non-toxic, sensitizing etc. It says a few oils such as spike lavender are not safe for people with epilepsy as its camphor content could bring on seizures. Also a few oils should be avoided during pregnancy. I had no idea aromatherapy could be so serious. After that serious information comes a small section which tells you what kind of emotional su A very informative little book.

Also a few oils should be avoided during pregnancy. I had no idea aromatherapy could be so serious. After that serious information comes a small section which tells you what kind of emotional support you can expect from your oils. Then comes the recipes. First, for mental and emotional well being. A lot of depression, anxiety and stress recipes. Then the physical, healing the body. Many cold, flu, migraine and upset stomach recipes. There were other recipes too, but this is what I remember. It definitely made me need to buy more essential oils.

    I enjoyed the content of this book. It was informative and an interesting read. My only complaint is with the format. It's a book that is 288 pages long squeezed into the dimensions of 4.2 x 0.8 x 5.3 inches. It felt awkward to hold and read. I wish the book was in a larger format. I also wish the type was a little larger. That would make for a very nice, albeit thinner, book that wouldbe a pleasure to read, instead of a chore. I enjoyed the content of this book.

    First of all let me say the information is good, and I like the pictures and set up. Yet the book is too little and chubby. The size makes it hard to read, hard to keep open and difficult to use. Also the index is to short. It needs to have a better index so I can flip to the back and look something up - otherwise I find myself flipping through page after page to find what I'm looking for.

    I bought this book before I really got into essential oils. I had been using them to make homemade cleaners and deodorant and wanted to know more. This was a nice introduction but essential oils are powerful and potent so if you are wanting to use them medicinally there are better resources.
