I am dissapointed that I could not and still can not find any info telling me that this book was written to go with doTerra essential oils. For someone who is using doTerra essential oils and/or their other products this book is probably 5 star perfect. The Personal guide recommends alot of doTerra's oil blends and nutritional supplements (single oils are also suggesteed.) I'm not currently committed to using doTerra, and am looking for something else to help a beginner. Had I known this book used doTerra I would have looked for something else.

I don't consider this book to be a complete waste, because I will be able to use the single oil section and recommendations.

I got this book because I was starting to try essential oils for common ailments. I am using the doTerra oils and like them a lot. The book has been extremely easy to read and understand the use of essential oils. It is simple to find the "recipe" for centain things like back aches, hair loss, headaches, etc. I would recommend this to anyone using the doTerra oils. It is nice to have on hand.

This is one of the best books on essential oils I've ever seen - and I've been looking for a while. The first 20ish pages give great diagram on reflexology which is informative and helpful. The next 30ish pages describe single blends of essential oils, describing their uses and applications thoroughly. The blends section is less than 10 pages which are descriptive of doTerra's oils which are excellent. In my opinion, far superior to other brands that I've tried and I've used others that claim to be very high quality. There are over 100 pages that allow you to look up your ailment and then suggest oils based on primary, secondary & other recommendations as well as whether the application should be aromatic, topical or internal. It's a wonderful, invaluable resource that is never far away.

If you are interested in healing oils this book is priceless. Not only does it list hundreds of uses for essential oils, it explains how they work and why high quality (Certified Pure Therapuetic Grade) oils are so effective in improving and maintaining health. The book provides wonderful color illustrations, lists chemical constituants, includes extensive listings of scientific studies conducted and a dozen pages of research references. It even tells you how to help heal your pets and farm animals! Easy to use and easy to understand. I bought one for home and one to leave at work. Excellent value!

I'm disappointed, I thought that this book was a general Essential Oils reference guide. It is essentially a DoTerra user guide- beware!

My wife recently got into oils as natural treatments and wanted something to help guide her in this realm. This book is very detailed and helpful. It has a section that you can look us say a headache and it will tell you the oil to use and how to use them to remedy your ailment. It will give you primary oil/s and secondary oil/s so if you dont have the first you can use the secondary if you have those. I got a really bad headache this last weekend that is not typical for me and followed this book to use peppermint. I took three strong sniffs and then a dab on my temples and the headache started going away within 30 minutes. My daughter is very prone to ear infections after she gets colds and we would need to go to the doctor and then get an antibiotic prescription only to have the infection last for days. This time we gave her the recommended oils and the very next morning she said it was better. I am really getting into this and that one Dr. visit avoided has more than paid for this book and the oils used. Maybe I'll use the extra money on lunch and some ice cream. YUMM

There are literally hundreds of excellent introductory books to those interested in using the oils to enhance their wellbeing. Why spend money on one that is nothing but a long advertisement for one multilevel marketing company. Hundreds of books give you formulas for dealing with different conditions or situations, Do not lock yourself into the knowledge (or the products) offered by only one company.
