Essential Oils for Beginners: A Guide to What They Are & How to Use Them
This is a great book for anyone just starting to use and learn about essential oils. I’ve been using essential oils on a daily basis for five years, have taught classes, and have several books on the subject, but I’d say that this one is the best I’ve read because of its content and organization. It takes the readers through the basics first, with chapters on the history of essential oils, carrier oils, and safety. Then, it has chapters on each of the twenty most commonly used oils. It includes their benefits, where each oil is sourced from, and precautions and uses. This is great because it shows the variety of uses each individual oil has. For example, peppermint oil can be energizing, aid digestion, and help with congestion, motion sickness, sinus issues, etc. The specific tips for how to use each oil are very useful. This also helps a new user build their oil collection by allowing them to focus on these twenty oils. There are hundreds out there, but you can do so much with these twenty. Once you are familiar with basic oils, the book has chapters exploring blending oils and diffusing oils. It ends with information on using oils for different purposes, like health and beauty, physical ailments, and emotional uses. This is a very well-laid-out book that covers a ton in a way that is not overwhelming to the new essential oil user. It would make a great gift to accompany oils as well.
