Just as fascinating to me as using herbs and plants for medicinal purposes is using essential oils in much the same way. Learning the proper ways to use these oils can be very rewarding, but where to start? When it comes to learning something new or honing knowledge you’ve already collected, nothing is better than a nice fat book filled with pages to pour yourself into. Connie and Alan Higley’s 11th edition of the Reference Guide for Essential Oils gives the natural remedy lover over 500 pages of well-organized information on the uses and how-to’s of essential oils.
The first part of the Reference Guide for Essential Oils gives a fantastic look into the applications of essential oils–where to apply them, how to use them, etc. The second section is my favorite, listing each oil one at a time, giving you folklore, historical uses, what parts of the body the oil is beneficial for, and much more. While about 3/4 of the book covers information on Young Living Essential Oils blends, supplements, and personal care products which I haven’t used before, I still find the book extremely useful for researching oils; I’ve had my nose in it for days. Of course, if you use Young Living products, you’ll have found the perfect resource for learning more.
