Top Customer Reviews
If you are not interested in in depth reviews, then my sections will be clearly labeled with different specifics so you can find what you want, or skip to the end for THE BOTTOM LINE
WHAT IS THIS BOOK LIKE?
This book is 6 inches by 9 inches and about 5/8 of an inch thick. That means it is easy to keep alongside your essential oil stash or take with you should you desire to do so. It is not a coffee table book. This is not, however, a picture book. This is a basic black and white book with a few diagrams or BASIC illustrations.
This book is broken into sections. There are a LOT of warnings, cautions, or explanations of situations that you need to know about using essential oils with. That includes such topics as pregnancy, epilepsy, hypoglycemia, children, ages of people for use internally or just topically, and many more.
Topics such as building tolerance, implants, cancer, use around eyes, and other cautions are covered- quite a bit, but not too much.
DRUG INTERACTIONS AND CAUTIONS
This section is well laid out. Each essential oil is listed independently in chart form and it outlines any cautions you might want to know about each oil individually. This allows for quick consultation with the information when you are looking into use of a blend that you want to make just to be sure you are not going to cause problems with yourself or family members.
APPLICATIONS AND CARRIER OILS
This section outlines not only what you can do with the oils, but the best way to apply them. Benefits of different carrier oils are outlined as well as dilutions. There is a chart that outlines different basic oils and how best to administer them and what situations to avoid using them.
SPECIFIC HEALTH CONDITIONS
To be honest with you, this is the section I really wanted the book for. I am very glad to have the previous sections as they are wonderful for reference. However, this section is the most helpful when you need help quickly. Each health condition is listed with basic blends that you can make to ease the condition.
HOW USEFUL HAS THIS BOOK BEEN FOR ME?
I have to say that this book has come in VERY handy for what I have needed it for. I have had to deal with a wide variety of uses in our family. Pink eye, Flu (severe), Fibromyalgia, indigestion, and migraine. I have used the recommended blend (adding a few extras that I knew would help) and have had really good results with them.
I have also had the chance to help my parents which was very successful using the pain blend for back pain.
WHAT I WISH THIS BOOK INCLUDED
Because this is about surviving and disasters, I would like to see a bit more information added about using essential oils for pets- what is safe, what is not, etc. Because in times of hard living, that would be VERY helpful.
THE BOTTOM LINE
If you would like to have basic information about health issues, know about cautions and situations to avoid using essential oils (or which ones NOT to use for pregnancy, if you are epileptic, etc) and other basic information about using essential oils in survival level situations, this book is an excellent reference. I have personally tried quite a few blends in this book now and found them to work very well not only for me, but other members of my family who were not believers in essential oils. This book is simple and black and white, so if you are looking for pictures and lots of colors, this book is not going to fill that desire. However for basic information to help your family through some hard situations, this book is great.
If it had information about animals (and if essential oils could be at all used for them) it would be about perfect!
I give this five stars and will update as I have even more experience with it in the future.
