Beware, however, that the 4th edition has dropped the cancer protocols that were in the 3rd edition (possibly due to government pressure).
The 4th edition does contain some updated information, especially in the areas of the newer blends of oils and newer products. It also has more illustrations in color.
But you also need the 3rd edition in order to have a complete reference.
I could only give this item one star because of the price. If I could have given zero stars, I would have done so.
What I object to is that you can get this SAME BOOK directly from the publisher for $50. Yet Amazon sellers are advertising prices - for even USED BOOKS - at over $200!!! What is UP with THAT?!
I have purchased every edition of this book, because every year it is updated with new information about new products, new studies, etc. But the prices these scalpers are charging are ridiculous! For less than $75, I ordered the book AND a spiral bound pocket reference and the price INCLUDED shipping and tax. You could buy 2 complete books for what I paid for 1 + a pocket reference. If you buy this on Amazon, you are getting ripped. I'm disgusted that people would do this. Google Essential Science Publishing, you will find them located in Orem UT, and you can order directly from them. You don't do yourself or other Amazon shoppers any favors by purchasing here.
I should have taken clue #1: no opportunity to browse the book online prior to purchase, or, clue #2: no listing for either an author or an editorial staff that may have culled an Essential Oil Desk Reference worthy of academic study and clinical application at more than a YLEO sales or personal use level.
While a brief discussion of basic essential oils information occurs in passing, the overwhelming balance (and emphasis) of the text is directed toward and devoted to the YLEO product line.
In addition, about 1/3 of the book addresses non-essential oil topics including detox diets, herbal supplements, and lifestyle recommendations all of which, brace yourself dear reader, also happen to include YLEO product recommendations.
If you are using YLEO, it's a great tool. If you are seeking a true reference tool, look elsewhere.
It is well written and claims are backed by research studies. I do not believe it would be wise to apply the information in this book to the use of oils other than Young Living's essential oils for reasons which will become obvious when studying the opening chapters about the importance of purity. This book should be used by all those who want nothing but the best information on how to use pure essential oils for complete health of mind and body.
