"As health issues become more challenging in our time, every family will welcome the wisdom provided in this valuable resource."
"This is the best book I have ever read in my life. I just couldn't put it down."
"Most enjoyable. Easy to read. Presents modern-day applications of essential oils as well as their use in scriptural times. A good book for ministers to gain a perspective on anointing with oils. I was amazed at the comprehensive research Dr. Stewart has done."

Furthermore, to claim that no oil distillation took place before 1 AD is simply false. The Babylonians, Egyptians, and likely other cultures in the Middle East (including Pakistan) were distilling oils as far back as 2000 BC. Please see this paper for one reference: Martin Levey (1956). "Babylonian Chemistry: A Study of Arabic and Second Millennium B.C. Perfumery", Osiris 12, p. 376-389. Furthermore, the ancient Greeks had developed sophisitcated mechanical computers by 100 BC (e.g. the Antikythera mechanism), so what makes it so hard to believe that a very SIMPLE process such as essential oil distillation (child's play compared to many other far more ancient intellectual feats) could not have taken place until much later?
God created Adam and Eve and put them in the middle of a garden. Can you close your eyes and just imagine what that must have smelled like. Doesn't your body just feel cleaner and relaxed just imagining what that must have been like. Essential oils are mentioned over 1000 times in the Bible - God put them in our environment and then told us to take dominion over them. I think He had something more in mind than pesticides!
This book causes you to take a look at your Bible in new ways with new appreciation for words you probably read over many times discounting them as antiquated and not for our day. No so, suggests this author. You'll learn such things as the oils used to be burned as incense on altars in the temple also possessed antiseptic and anti-viral properties. Hummm . . . a place where animals were slaughted and people congregated for worship being a place which was regularly treated against bacteria and viruses to deter health situations which might otherwise arise. Do you suppose that was just happenstance? I think not.
The author was pretty thorough in the information presented in this book - you will find it fascinating if you are interested in such things.
