Essential Oils by Heather Dawn Godfrey is a comprehensive guide on how to best use oils for health and well being. Using the right oils to get the best results for your meditations is one subject that I really enjoyed studying. It’s a hands on book that teaches as it goes . A wonderful resource book that I think that everyone will be able to use whether you are really into oils or jut dabble. I loved it. Maria (Goodreads)
This book is an informative guide to the use of essential oils as an accompaniment to meditation/mindfulness. It finishes with a chapter on other forms of achieving wellbeing – nutrition, exercise and relaxation. There are footnotes and a bibliography for further information. As such it’s very comprehensive but as a newcomer to essential oils I didn’t find the content intimidating. Tina Milledge (Goodreads)
Essential oils have become so popular. It’s nice to have the opportunity to read a book combining mindfulness, meditation and essential oils. I would definitely recommend reading this book. When, how, where and the best time to use the essential oils is outlined throughout the book. A great reference book too. Meryl-Sue (Netgalley)
This book is fantastic! I have utilised it many times and continue going back to it for all the wonderful information that is in it. Lesley J (Netgalley)
The contents of this book is full of very descriptive information about essential oils. It would make a great reference book in any home as well as the local public library. This book would also be a well-used addition to any person wanting a more in-depth knowledge of oils. It will also help those like me who dally somewhat with oils but do not fully comprehend all the intricacies. Might keep someone like me from handling the oils improperly. Mary (Goodreads)
This book is far more detailed than most I’ve picked up regarding essential oils. It has lots of clinical information including anatomy and cells, etc. While I found it quite interesting I also thought it might be more than some are looking for.
If that’s the case, don’t worry. The book covers lots more. I’m sure one of the sections will be a fit for you. There are wonderful descriptions of essential oils and how they are most effectively used. She even details the colors, chakras, gemstones, and crystals that correspond with each oil.
There are charts detailing what oils work best on certain ailments. And finally, what I found most interesting were the instructions for making creams, ointments, and more. And since I diffuse oils more than anything else there is a helpful section on combining oils.
The book is extremely thorough and covers nearly every topic. For those who like the in and outs and whys, this should be a perfect book. Debbie Smith (Goodreads)
This is a great book! It could be your all telling oil book. I learned so much about the oils that I didn’t already know. Louanne S (Netgalley)
I am new to using essential oils and am glad that this book has most of the information we need. It includes detailed information, pictures, and even some recipes. I’m glad I gave this book a shot. Will definitely be using some of the concepts and recipes. Misty S (Netgalley)
