Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just received this book and it appears to be quite thorough. There are primary sections of:
1) Application
2) Single Oils (BEST PART OF BOOK)
3) Oil Blends (These are all Young Living Oil Blends)
4) Personal Care Products (Face Cream & Such)
5) Bath & Shower Gels
6) Tinctures
7) Massage Oils
8) Supplements (BEST PART OF BOOK)
9) Personal Guide (Think Personal Health Care Management - BEST PART OF BOOK)

The Personal Guide takes up the entire last half of the book. It tells you what to use for this and for that. Over all it is an in depth book, but important information is lacking (Concerning Formulations) and the book seems to be geared towards Young Living Essential Oils. I have no problem with Young Living, they do have a great product. But THEY ARE NOT THE ONLY COMPANY to offer high quality Theraputic Grade Essential Oils as one would tend to believe after reading some of the things published by their followers. Not to mention that Young Living charges 10x what a product of theraputic grade quality should cost due to their pyramid payment plan for distributors. It is not very Holy to deprive persons who are sick of God's medicine and that is what essential oils are. Everyone cant afford almost $100 for one small bottle of Frankincense - especially when it should not cost that, but maybe $15.00 for the same amount. They also speak of using a Nebulizer which distributes the oils in the air without heating them, to treat illness. The YL nebulizer is once again $100, I know where to get the same one without their logo on it for $39.00. Soooooo, that is one reason why I'm not 100% happy with this book. It is a Young Living sales tool.

Format: Paperback
If you are looking for a guide to essential oils that also includes information on over 600 health related topics, this is an excellent choice. If you can find a copy of this book you can look up an essential oil and find: the botanical family, chemical constituents, properties, folklore, historical uses, medicinal uses, other possible uses, aromatic influence, application, blend classification, blends with various oils listed and frequency.

Sandalwood has frequency of 96 MHz, while Rose oil has a frequency of approximately 320 MHz. It was interesting to read about fresh herbs having a higher frequency than dry herbs and that there is a relationship between frequency and disease. Cancer has a frequency of 42 MHz, while death begins at 25 MHz. Essential oils help the body to regain a healthy frequency. Connie and Alan Higley also discuss the effects of positive and negative thoughts and show how various essential oils affect our moods.

Science and Application - How to use oils in baths, compresses and diffusers. You can even add essential oils to paint or use essential oils when cleaning your house for their disinfecting qualities. Vita Flex Therapy and Raindrop Therapy are also discussed.

Single Oils - Concise information on pure essential oils. Safety Data is also included. The Historical uses and Folklore make this book quite a fun read. Special Note give detailed information, like in the section about Jasmine the authors explain how the blossoms are collected.

Oil Blends - Each blend lists the single oils contained in the blend and gives the reason for including the oils. To find the blends online, just add the name of the oil after "Young Living Essential Oils.

13 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Laurel Pen on July 15, 2006
Format: Spiral-bound
The book has some good features, including excellent typeface and indexing. A large Personal Guide section lists conditions and potentially useful products (based on EOs and products from Young Living Essential Oils company). The entries on the YL products include basic background and chemical information, possible uses, folklore, ways to apply. Interesting information, well-organized.

I especially like the listing of French Medicinal uses, FDA classification and safety information, but these are too brief. Although the authors urge caution in using the information, there are no DETAILS on safety or specific protocols. In fact, some information is probably incorrect. For example, the books says that it is ok to use essential oils (lavender!) on cats if diluted. Reputable authors elsewhere refute this, saying essential oils are toxic to cats, including lavender. Use only hydrosols on cats.

USE CAUTION. If you plan to do-it-yourself, the book is a good quick reference to give some ideas, but please find reliable sources on SAFETY and protocol. If you don't live in Europe where people must be certified to practice aromatherapy, at least find a thorough text that covers this topic. I don't know which are the best, but I have seen good reviews for Kristen Leigh Bell's "Holistic Aromatherapy for Animals," and Robert Tisserand "Essential Oil Safety." Others may be as good or better. BE WISE. BE INFORMED. BE SAFE.

Format: Spiral-bound
This wonderful book contains 9 main chapters including SCIENCE AND APPLICATION, SINGLE OILS, OIL BLENDS, PERSONAL CARE PRODUCTS, BATH GELS AND BAR SOAPS,TINCTURES, MASSAGE OILS, VITAMINS, & PERSONAL GUIDE.

This book is very well put together and is written in an easy to understand no-nonsense way. Almost every oil I've ever heard of is in here along with it's applications and cautions. There are recipes in here which give the ingredients to many of the Young Living blends as well as many alternative blends. There are also recipes for personal care products. I really enjoyed this and got alot of use from it with my oils. The spiral binding makes it easy to keep open for reference as you blend and mix! The recipes for orange blossom face wash and the rose ointment are highly recommended.
