My Favorite Essential Oils Reference Book

My favorite essential oils reference book has been updated! Love essential oils? Love to learn more about essential oils? I do.

I’m always surfing the internet to find answers for a remedy using essential oils instead of using synthetic and toxic products. But more so, I love to pick up a reference book, in-hand, turn the pages, and find so much information right at my fingertips.

Ebooks are great too, inexpensive, but for me, a book in-hand is by far the easiest to use, especially when creating new essential oil blends or recipes, flipping back and forth through pages for reference. I don’t have to log-on the computer, do a search, scroll through pages on several different websites to find what I’m looking for…I just pick up this reference book, open it and find what I’m looking for.

My favorite essential oils reference book is was The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy by Valerie Ann Worwood. I have used this book ever since I began using essential oils about four years ago.

And now, my new favorite essential oils reference book, is Worwood’s newly published 25th Anniversary Edition of The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy. This edition is completely revised and expanded making it superior to the original. Hard to believe, but it is. There are over 800 natural recipes in this essential oils reference book (200 more than in the original). And, that’s just a small part of the book.

Over the past 25 years, the essential oil market has ballooned in popularity worldwide. People are turning to natural, clean medicinal alternatives instead of synthetic products and drugs, realizing the huge benefits essential oils have in our daily lifestyle. Essential oils are not just for diffusing, they reach further for medicinal, environmental, and beauty purposes too.

Worwood’s years of experience, research, and facts are prevalent in her fabulous new book. The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy will certainly inspire you to try something new, and I’m sure it will be your “go to” essential oils reference book, not letting you down. Design your on blends and kits or stock Worwood’s suggested kits and oils. Make your own hydrolats, scrubs, lotions, and salves, and a more. Save a huge amount of money too by making your own products. Find valuable information for pain relief too, for many ailments. There is also a chapter on how to use essential oils in cooking, and one for your pets. (Note: the book is not intended or implied to substitute professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment by a licensed medical practitioner.) 

The new Self Defense Kit chapter defines 10 essential oils to use for protecting us from environmental infections and viruses that attack our bodies daily. You’ll easily learn how to blend various oils for room sprays, bath scrubs, body oils, and more for combating infections from digestion to respiratory diseases to cuts, scraps and burns.
