Mar 30, 2011This is the best book I have ever found listing all the Essential Oils and their uses. I call it my Essential Oil Bible. It contains every possible oil available and then some. There is no possible way to remember everything listed in this book, which is why I end up using it as a reference tool. I am constantly going back to this book to look up this or that for oil use. I use essential oils for everything - all ailments, feel goods, illnesses, and more.

Nov 23, 2014It's a decent reference, but there are better EO books (with updated information) out there. I prefer a book that explains why certain oils are used for Z or Y, not just gives recipes. I also find her tone throughout the book a bit off-putting. Nonetheless, I'll hang onto it as a backup because it is easy to look up specifics (which I would then cross-reference with a more modern and instructive book such as Schnaubelt's or Tissarand's.

Jul 12, 2009This is a fantastic reference book for working with essential oils both as a perfumer and as a cosmetics formulator. Ms. Wormwood is one of the world's acknowledged experts on all things essential, and her advice about the therapeutic value of many of these oils is brilliant. As someone who has more than 20 years of experience working with the medical modalities of these types of therapy, her advice is both scientific in approach, and holistic in value. Highly recommended.
Sep 16, 2014I have just started using essential oils in the last few weeks. I am already a firm believer in them and what they can do. This book has been so helpful in educating me in the world of essential oils!
Aug 14, 2015Probably a good resource at publication, but has a lot of outdated information
Jun 09, 2010Okay, this one's definitely a keeper. Zack's warts are vanishing and I only applied the essential oil remedy for three or four days. Warts are so annoying, I had the hardest time getting rid of them when I was a kid. I'm absolutely amazed at how well this worked.
Aug 17, 2013Okay, if we consider that.."recent work (Villemure, Slotnick, and Bushnell 2003) has shown that the areas of the brain that light up in response to a painful stimulus can be dulled by creating positive moods with a pleasant odor" - this book becomes essential. Aromatherapy can be used to improve our lives in a myriad of ways. I have personally used it to quit smoking and manage pain.

Feb 13, 2013This is a fabulous reference book. I read it cover to cover and marked up most of the pages with notes and highlights; I tabbed many pages of recipes and tips that I want to refer back to.
Mar 31, 2011My favorite reference book for using essential oils. There is even a section for children and babies...these I have also used for adult use with success.
Apr 29, 2009My bestfriend got me this book a couple years ago for Christmas. My mom and I argue over it, it's so good and useful.
Apr 02, 2008This is probably the best book out there if you want to learn more about Essential Oils and Aromatherapy. Valerie Ann Worwood is incredibly knowledgeable in the subject, and i refer to this book often in my library!
Oct 17, 2007i really appreciate the way this book in indexed. any ailment or issue you can think of is listed in a clear way so you can turn right to it. the relevance of a book like this is in its usability and this is still my favorite in that department.
Sep 17, 2017While this book has some useful information, it is lacking in several ways. First and foremost, the lack of oil safety for usage is big. Secondly, it has some extremely outdated content. Be sure to have a more recent oil book to go along side this if you need a good reference book for your essential oil use.
Aug 04, 2015Essential Oils - you wouldn't think a book would become outdated. Maybe it's just me. This seemed like a waste of time and I abandoned it.
Sep 27, 2013Great book to get an overall understanding of essential oil use. I've already used a lot of the recipes and have been enjoying the results. Some of the verbage is confusing since she's British, but overall the instructions are pretty easy to follow. I especially like the section about the 10 essentials oils you should start your home kit with. Sometimes the chapters are hard to get into but the info is worth knowing so it's worth it to persevere. Overall great resource.
May 26, 2013The quintessential layman's reference book for essential oils, aromatherapy and natural healing and home. I've abandoned a number of commercial products, from acne treatments and household cleaners to moisturizers and air fresheners. I've also seen this book used in upscale spas and holistic healthcare. I've moved multiple times, and this book and my oils are always packed with the absolutely-positively-can't-live-without-it stuff!
Oct 30, 2013This book is amazing. It goes through so many emotional and physical issues and how to heal them with aromatherapy. The author gives recipes and explains how much to use. She explains so much in detail and it is a wonderful book if you are just getting started into using essential oils. It is also a great book if you use aromatherapy but want some more information on the benefits physically and emotionally.
Sep 22, 2013I have heard this book refered to as the "bible" for the subject matter. It is very thorough & has common sense advice (cut out smoking, booze, etc). There has been a lot of recent research on essential oils that make this an even more valuable resource guide. I have read several reviews on this site and on others, that the advice on using oils on cats & dogs internally is toxic. So yes please, follow the advice of medical professionals first.
Sep 04, 2017This is an excellent resource book for better understanding essential oils. It is informative and descriptive about how to and when to use essential oils. This essential oil reference guide provides a remedy for just about everything through the use of essential oils. in addition, I do use it in conjunction with other reference materials. Yes, I would recommend it to others interested in learning about essential oils.
Dec 02, 2019This is my favorite book on the topic. You wonâ€™t find much new-agey or magickal information here, this is strictly for the practice of aromatherapy as an art.
Jun 16, 2017This is by far the best reference book on essential oils out there. Whatever you use them for, you will find a wealth of info regarding it in here. Buy it, a sharpie, and some adhesive tabs, because you're going to want to make this as easy to use as possible; you'll be looking through it constantly.
Sep 28, 2019This is a wonderful book. One of the classics. It is chock full of 600 recipes and lots of information.
Nov 25, 2017This book is akin to the bible of aromatherapy. It leaves no oil or hydrosol unturned. The chapters which covered self-defense, emotions, woman's oils, care for the home, gardening, and animals were of most interest and use to me. This is a must-have reference book.
Jan 27, 2017Lots of great, detailed information & recipes. Great reference to have on hand & available as you learn your way around the world of essential oils. Pretty great info on just about every essential oil & what sorts of things they may be useful for.
