My reason for giving only 3 stars is because I feel that some serious boundaries were overstepped in this book. There aren't just recommendations give for the common cold and toe nail fungus. There are recommendations given for very serious conditions, such as blood clots, cirrhosis, many cancers etc. Well, okay, there is some evidence recently that frankincense is helpful in the treatment of some cancers. However (and this is kind of a big deal), frankincense can also interfere with chemotherapy and needs to be avoided for a certain period of time before and after treatment. There is no mention of this. What bothers me most is that there are no names or sources listed. No list of authors, contributors, practitioners...nothing. So really any unqualified random person down the street could have written this book and there's no way to know either way. I'm all about natural remedies when they are appropriate, but if a book is going to make recommendations for serious illnesses, I believe the writer(s) should be willing to put their name(s) to it.
So to sum it all up, this book is useful as a tool, but I absolutely would not trust it as my only source of information. To be fair, the book doesn't claim to be a one-stop-shop of medical wisdom, which is why I gave it 3 stars instead of 2. If you're new to essential oils or natural remedies, please understand that you MUST be your own advocate and do a LOT of research before trusting any one book/website/person.
UPDATE!!!! Finally had a chance to look some thing up in this book, DO NOT GO BY THE INDEX---WRONG!!!!! So disappointed to find this out now. So time consuming to have to go through every page to find what I'm looking for. Wish I hadn't wasted my money. Dropping stars!!
