Review.jpg

I am somewhat familiar with this topic but was intrigued to learn more. It amazes me how many oils are available today to help with different problems like headaches, pain and colds.  I did like when the author says, " You should always check with your doctor before making any major health decisions." That statement reminds  me that this book is another way to look at health and the benefits of oils, but for us to be smart in deciding what is best for us. A good example is if you break a limb, you should go get it looked at. I think this book helped me not to be so close minded and look over the facts . 

The book is beautifully illustrated with pictures that pop off the pages. Everything is described in details and offers an array of oils that can be helpful. I am the type of person that is a bit wary of new things. If  someone tells me to try something I am hesitant to jump in right away. The book helps me to examine what the benefits are of oils and how to use them. 

The author fills the pages with different oils and scents and gives examples of how to use them. I liked the bible references and how they tie oils to everyday life. Have we missed what God has put before us as healing oils? That is a question I kept asking myself throughout the book. Native Americans used plants and oils to cure sickness without medicine that is commonly used today.  Essential Oils are beginning to prove helpful and more people are turning to oils as a way to overcome colds, stress and depression.

The chapter on "How to Select a Brand " was very helpful to me. I am lost when it comes to this subject and appreciated the insight the author gave. Just like most products there are many to choose from. The author breaks down what different oils are used for and how much should be taken. I enjoyed learning more about the subject and have decided to try a few that were mentioned in the book.

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
