“The definitive guide to which oils we need for our diet and our skin—and why.” -- Vogue

From the Publisher

Did you know that avocado oil can help keep your skin looking younger? That evening primrose oil is good for PMS and eczema? And that fish oils can help to relieve depression in adults and Attention Deficit Disorder in children? Research shows that many oils have unique attributes for beauty and health and can even help speed weight loss. Used correctly, the natural oils in our diet and in supplements have remarkable therapeutic effects. Drawing on a wealth of new research and scientific evidence, New Vital Oils explains the fastest, most effective ingredients for radiant beauty and glowing good health. Also included is an in–depth guide to aromatherapy oils and a special section on problem solving, ranging from baby care to arthritis.

Format: Paperback
Some useful information about essential oils, although has nothing new to say; anyone already well versed in aromatherapy will already have all the info and probably won't learn anything new here.
What bothers me most about this book is the wrong informaton it gives about coconut oil. The author states that it is bad for you and should be avoided in the diet, but this is totally wrong. She is basing this on the fact that coconut oil is a saturated fat, but it is the healthy kind, not the so-called 'unhealthy' sort. Animal fat is composed of long chain fatty acids and is a saturated fat that is held to be the 'unhealthy' kind; whereas coconut oil, although also a saturated fat, is composed of medium chain fatty acids and is proven to be good for people. (Just ask the South Sea Islanders who live on the stuff!).

Cocount is a natural, beneficial food, unprocessed and organic, it has all kinds of health benefits, just have a look at some of the books extolling its virtues. "Coconut Oil: The Healthiest Oil on Earth" by Siegfried Gursche and "The Coconut Oil Miracle" by Bruce Fife are both good books to read.

In any cooking that calls for oil or fat of some sort, the oil of choice should always be coconut oil. It lends a very subtle flavour to fried foods without overpowering anything with coconut flavour. I eat it by the spoonful, it is delicious. Just make sure to get organic, virgin, cold pressed oil from a reputable supplier.
The soya manufacturers have had a vested interest in getting the tropical oils a bad press, whilst extolling the virtues of soya bean products and that is the main reason coconut oil has been shunned for so long.
