Review: The Healing Powers of Essential Oils

I am new to the world of essential oils and am probably one of the last ones to jump on the essential oil wagon! It was only a month ago that I bought several combination sets of oils online at a well-known site. I really didn't know how to use them, when to use them, or what purpose they had, but I wanted to be on that wagon with so many of my friends!

Shortly after that purchase, I found this book and hoped it would fill in all the questions I had. 

I was 2 days into reading this book when my husband contracted some flu-like virus. His temperature spiked, skin was tingly, muscles ached, and he became miserable with congestion and coughing. I went to the index of the book and looked up what I'd need to help him as he was open to anything to relieve his symptoms and possibly get over this quickly.

In the book, I found several recipe combinations that I felt could help him. Even though I was short one or two oils for each recipe, I gathered what I did have and mixed them with a carrier oil from my kitchen and applied it to his temples and behind his ears. He also kept a small jar nearby for light inhalation. 

Did it work? It really did! The next day he was feeling a lot better! The symptoms of the flu (fever, aches, tingly skin) were gone and he felt like he had a minor cold. He continued applying the essential oil combination for the next few days and found he was on the mend very quickly. 

"Essential oils can help you sleep better, relieve your pain, heal your digestion, support you in losing weight, and help you feel vibrant enough to pursue abundant and radiant health in all areas of your life."   This is stated on p.78 and the above instance alone dealing with my husband's virus, sold me on the powers of essential oils. 

What I love about the book is the table of contents and the index to easily find what you're looking for at the moment. Within the pages, there is also discussion on how to get the best results from the oil(s) you're using and where to apply them.
