In today's world, the cost of prescriptions are rising. People are having side effects from medications. Some simple conditions that are untreated could become major health issues down the road. I grew up on a farm where my mother canned most of our vegetables and my Dad butchered most of our meat. I grew up on very few unadulterated products and preservatives. Now that I have a young daughter, I am more concerned than ever by what my daughter is exposed to and ingests.
My daughter has keratosis pilaris, which is commonly called chicken skin. Basically she gets bumps on her calves, thighs and upper arms. It's more of a cosmetic issue, but for some people they can become itchy. The doctor did give me a steroid cream, however I'd prefer to not use so many chemicals etc on her young skin and expose system to who knows what kind of unnatural products. I've used coconut oil, and now thanks to this ebook, I will try essential oils!
Natural herbs and remedies have been used for a very long time. A lot of these remedies do in fact work. You just need to know how to use them safely. I have heard stories of people breaking out and rashes or getting sick, and it's because they either didn't use food grade essential oils, didn't check to see if they were irritated by it, used products that weren't made to be used on the skin or bought low grade unpure products!
Do your research!!! And of everything I've read so far, this ebook has been THE most comprehensive guide to essential oils. It's a cookbook, dictionary and guide all in one. The book is very well written, knowledgeable and complete. The book is organized very well, from how essential oils came about, to what they are, to how they're produced, to how to use them as well as a dictionary of oils and "recipes".
One of the best parts of this book, is that they stress that you do your research and know what you're doing. Make sure the essential oil you're using can be ingested. Make sure you don't take too much. Test spot your skin to make sure you don't have reactions. And be sure to buy quality essential oils! This ebook recommends placing a single drop on a piece of paper and that it should evaporate in about an hour and not leave an oily ring, except for a few that will leave a mark. Because essential oils are not FDA monitored, you need to know if they're pure or have carrier oils.
I really enjoyed about how products should be bought and stored. They should come in dark, glass bottles. They should be kept in a dark, dry place out of sunlight. That most will last 5 years, but citrus tend to last closer to 2 years. Also, they should never come in nor be stored in plastic! I bought one essential oil that sent cheap, plastic droppers with their oil. Needless to say, their oil wasn't that good and they should know better than to supply plastic! A glass dropper is better. But overall, they need to be kept airtight.
I love what I call the "recipe" section of the book! It lists common ailments in alphabetical oder, then it gives "recipes" of what essential oils to use and how much to use to create what's needed for that ailment. It also tells makes sure to warn people to make sure nothing interacts with other medical issues, and to be sure a doctor is aware. This ebook also explains how massages, compresses etc can be helpful.
The last section of the book is a list of essential oils in alphabetical order. This section lists the plant name, what it's good for treating, any precautions, what it looks like in natural state. It also lists other components that blend well with these oils. The book also gives a quick guide as well as references to studies and other work that it's referenced.
Overall, I am very impressed by this ebook and I've recommended it to others. As a beginner, this is just the book I needed to get me started. If you are looking for a book that will tell you all about oils, the kinds of oils and how to use them, then this book is for you! This ebook was received in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
