Overall, this is an excellent reference book for anyone interested in aromatherapy, massage therapy, or finding other methods to use the oils.
The EODR gives the history of essential oils and distilling, dicusses how they work, what makes an oil therapeutic grade, basic chemistry of essential oils, safety considerations, how to apply, how to do a Raindrop Technique, how to VitaFlex (Vitality through the Reflexes, a type of acupressure), how to do a lymphatic pump, how to do auricular therapy (emotional acupressure on the ears) and how to use essential oils on animals.
This book covers each essential oil, giving the key constituents, medical properties, uses, fragrant influences (mind and emotions), and how to apply. It also covers each Young Living blend.
It includes information on related health topics such as the dangers of heavy metals including mercury, artificial sweeteners, and chlorinated / flouridated water. It gives information on the importance of liver health and pH balance, and what contributes to longevity. All backed by research.
There are sections listing each emotional and physical issue and which essential oils are used to nurture, balance and support mind and body.
Of all the many aromatherapy books that I have, this book, to me, is the easiest to read, most thorough and most useful. The others stay on the shelf for consulting sometimes. I use my Essential Oil Desk Reference every single day and learn something new each time. In fact, I learned something just by paging through it for this review. [...] has by far the best price on this. With free shipping, it is less than the book alone at any other source that I've found.
