More About the Author

Bestselling author Scott Johnson is admired by his peers for his ability to take complex health subjects and make them understandable to the general public. His writing style is enjoyed and attainable by many. His diverse educational background (doctor of naturopathy, Board Certified Alternative Medical Practitioner, Certified Clinical Master Aromatherapist, and Certified Professional Coach) and evidence-based approach to natural therapies make him a leader in natural medicine. His passion lies in sharing the secrets of natural healing with others who seek greater wellness.

He spent most of his childhood in Utah, where he gained a love for creative writing. Recognizing his potential at a young age, his teachers and family encouraged him to explore his developing writing talents.

Scott continued to craft imaginative and original stories through his teenage years and served as a yearbook writer and photographer in High School. He published his first book, "Nutrition: A Word of Wisdom," in 2009, and has published more than 250 editorial pieces in various online and print publications.

His first fictional book and musical CD "Jeremy's Christmas Journey" was released in October of 2012. The CD features the work of talented composers Lyle Hadlock, Julie Hawkins and Jonah Hadlock, and the rich voice of five former or current members of BYU's Vocal Point, as well as other talented vocalists..

Since then, Scott has published three additional books, including the Amazon bestseller "Surviving When Modern Medicine Fails: A definitive guide to essential oils that could save your life during a crisis," "TransformWise: Your Complete Guide to a Wise Body Transformation" and "Beating Ankylosing Spondylitis Naturally." Each book offers unique insight into the world of natural healing, helping the reader discover optimum well-being.

I have had the chance of working with Scott directly in the essential oils field. I first read his book Nutrition: A word of wisdom; I thought "Wow, Scott really has some awesome stuff to share!" Now he has tackled Essential Oils in a way that very few can. Essential Oils as a topic is really second nature to him, and anyone who has attended his lectures or trainings can quickly grasp this fact. He is also an accomplished writer which means he is actually able to put his knowledge on paper in a way that is best for the reader. If you, like thousands of people, are becoming aware of the power and benefits of making essential oils a part of your life style; this is a book you will want to put in your library. The best part is that it is only 68 pages, when you need to find a use for an oil quickly, the last thing you want to flip through hundreds of pages.

Excellent reference book to have on hand! Very complete how to use essential oils and safety data sections. I have used essential oils for over 15 years and have not found a more complete guide when it comes to how to use and how much to use for children. Every home that uses essential oils should have a copy of this book on hand. I also love his simple and direct protocols for a wide variety of physical issues and concerns. Well written, easy to follow and in depth information.

Format: Paperback
You "back up" your computer regularly, but do you have a "back up system" for your health? Dr Johnson gently reminds us that there may be times when we can not turn to our health care system for help. When that happens, are you prepared to look after your own health? Therapeutic grade essential oils have strong research based evidence backing them, as methods to deal with many of the diseases and traumas that life can throw at us. The crisis's Dr Johnson refers to may not be a catastrophic natural disaster, but coming down with an infection for which modern medicine has no effective tools. Yes there are "superbugs" out there, for which we have NO effective antibiotics! Essential oils can be effective in these situations, I have many patient testimonials that verify this. This simple, well organized book covers the basic 42 essential oils with clear instructions on how to use them and an alphabetical guide to looking up common conditions. A great gift for your friends, family and for yourself! This is a must have book in everyone's home.

-This is a thin book, easy to read, it's more of an outline with "recipes."
-There are a ton of ailments that are listed in this book.
-There are no "fillers" that go on and on of paragraph information that you'll never read.
-I have purchased one book that has information and tips when using essential oils, and I purchased this for a quick reference without the fluff, for a lot of recipes.
-I have found great mixes to make and to try.
-Very easy to understand, and very easy follow the "recipes."
-I'm so glad I bought this book. I have used it more than the internet and the original book I bought when seeking a new mix to make to treat or help with anything.

This 2nd edition from Dr. Scott Johnson is a winner! If you are looking for a clearly written, concise book that has suggested protocols to follow mixed with a ton of useful information, you (like me) have found it!
The first part of the book details constituents of the oils and a bit of history. There are references to scientific journal studies if you have an interest and would like to dig deeper. The book goes on to describe quite a number of oils and their contraindications and possible interactions. This is clearly presented and very useful - particularly for those who are either pregnant, currently taking prescribed medicines, or planning to use oils on children.
The book continues with a great description/discussion on various carrier oils and their properties, as well as a discussion of methods of application. Again, presented in a manner that makes sense without having to weed out all the extraneous, no-so-important info.
Finally, the last 90 or so pages list different health conditions along with clear protocols. Dilution ratios are provided as well as application and dosing information.
Have I already mentioned how clear and concise this book is??? It's a great addition to whatever might be on your bookshelf right now; if there's nothing there at the moment, this is a fabulous first book!

Every home should have this book at their fingertips. Living in an area where natural disasters are not uncommon, it is important to have the knowledge and tools to care for oneself, family and/or neighbors. I believe people are waking up to the fact that circumstances may not allow a run to the ER or Walgreens. Dr. Johnson has simplified which essential oils to have in your arsenal and how to use them. I am buying more copies of this book to share with friends and family. Knowledge is power!

In today's world, education is a must when it comes to our health and building strong bodies. This book will easily equip a family how to build immunity as well as how to deal with challenging issues naturally. Scott seems to be on the cutting-edge with current information when it comes to therapeutic grade essential oils. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for an alternative to pharmaceutical drugs and their side effects.
