Favorite Quote:

Why I liked this book:

Our ancestors’ earliest medicines were all made from the plants in their immediate environment.  As I travel the world, I like to collect stories and wisdom of these practices whether they are colorfully called wives tales, witchcraft, or traditional medicine.  

For me, I have been moving toward more organic proactive methods for health management.  I also find that many of my favorite skin & face products are using essential oils, but I am not fond of the myriad of other chemicals in the mix.

As in everything in my quest for more information about health this year, there is an element of uniqueness in what works and what does not on different people.

I have found eucalyptus an absolute miracle for my sinus issues.  Rosehip is my go-to for rosacea.  Lavender – calming in a sense but not a miracle worker for me.

I picked up this book because I wanted to educate myself with some science-based research on the health benefits of different oils. Most of the information on the internet is really experimental and quite honestly emotionally driven if not also sponsored.  

This book was science based, unemotional and provided the history of oils, uses and also was quite frank about when science based information was not available.

I found it to be a thorough introductory guide for using some of the basic essential oils to help soothe certain conditions like inflammation, anxiety, and skin disorders.  It includes details on several different essential oils and recipes for therapeutic blends and sprays.  

This book is on my kindle and a reference guide as I continue to explore different oils and see how they work for me both proactively and as natural remedies for ailments.
