1.0 out of 5 stars Lack of information 23 Jun 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After 5minutes reading, i put it down; waste of money. The information about each oil is quite generalised. If you want to learn about the purpose and benefits of the essential oils, you better off looking on internet. The information and usage of essential oils from website company far better !!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good basic guide to essential oils, not marketed by a particular oil company either! 30 Dec 2013
By Betsy - Published on

It has been tough for me to find books on essential oils that aren't backed by the marketing department of companies like doterra and young living. I appreciate this book because it is an unbiased take on oils, instead discussing the importance of oil purity and the source/method of creating the oils.

It lists oils that are safe (or not) for pregnancy, though the section on "not safe for pregnancy" .... I noticed, was missing eucalyptus oil. That is, however, remedied in the index of oils, as the notes for eucalyptus do say not to use when pregnant.

Which brings me to the next feature I like. There is a basic index of oils, listing the source of each oil, the uses/benefits, cautions, etc.

After that section, you'll find a section on recipes and blends for various conditions (cold, dandruff, acne, etc)... Again, listed alphabetically.

Overall this is a good basic reference book, particularly since it isn't a marketing device for the companies I mentioned above. Other reference books I have considered would actually say to use that company's blend X, but not tell you what was in it (for proprietary reasons). I like that this book give several recipes and options for creating blends for a given health concern.

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC! 9 May 2013

I have a couple of other books on aromatherapy and using essential oils, but this looks to be the best. It is well-organized and has LOADS of information, even more than what might be expected. I was quite impressed by all the information the author managed to pack into the book. And unlike many similar books, it is EASY to find what you want. The table of contents tells you exactly what is in each chapter and links to everything. I love, love, love this book and use it regularly.

A fantastic buy for those just starting in the world of essential oils. This book holds a great collection of information regarding carrier oils, common essential oils, and recipes for most ailments. Concise and to the point, and very well laid out. A great bood for the beginner's arsenal.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful, but pretty light 24 Nov 2013
By Sweeny - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am relatively new to aromatherapy so ordered 3 books that got good reviews. This book was by far the simplest of the three. Most of the info was of the same depth I had already found online and it only took a few hours to read the entire thing. That said, it does contain the basics and as such is a useful intro to aromatherapy. If you are looking for a more in-depth intro though I would recommend "The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy" by Valerie Worwood. It is quite a bit denser and even though I haven't finished Worwood's book yet I've already learned more new info from her than Johnson.

I got this one free because I'm interested in essential oils. I'm always on the lookout for recipes and reference materials. This book has some decent beginner information, nothing complicated. There are books that are more extensive, but this one is okay for free.
