If you are looking for a comprehensive book on the use of essential oils, this is the perfect book. “The Healing Power of Essential Oils” uses evidence-based research for using essential oils for a host of health conditions, from anxiety and depression to hormonal imbalance, digestive distress, and sleep disorders.

You will learn the fundamentals of aromatherapy, basic tools, and techniques and which oils to get started with. Dr. Eric Zielinski provides recommended oils for all occasions and over 150 “recipes” for combining specific oils for different uses. This is a must-have book for every family’s health library.

Dr. Zielinski has hosted an online summit, “Essential Oils Revolution.” since 2014. This book is the result of his summits and personal research. The book is filled with fascinating case studies.

There is an oil combination for weight loss, which I personally cannot wait to try. My essential oils have been ordered and are on the way. This recipe, like most others, is based on research and simple to apply.

Some of the Recipes:
Morning Meditation Body Oil
Sweet Slumber Diffuser Blend
Anti-Anxiety Spray
Citrus Pain Relief Roll On

This is the book is a wonderful collection of recipes that will help you detoxify your home and help you transform your body care for optimal health.

I received this book from Blogging for Books in order to write this review.

Aromatherapy is, as the name suggests, a therapy that uses aromas. These aromas are produced from plants, trees, and herbs. Aromatherapy oils have the ability to affect our moods and fill a whole room with their fragrance.  The oils can be smelled, put in a simple burner, or applied to the skin. There is also an electric aromatherapy vaporizer that uses water with the oils.  Today we will discuss some oils that are good for relaxation.

First, a warning about using the oils.  The essential oils should not be applied directly to the skin undiluted.  True essential oils are undiluted and come in small dark blue or brown bottles.

Oils for Relaxing

1. Clary Sage – It is extremely euphoric and is very good as an antidepressant. It is also good mixed into a bath

2. Jasmine – Jasmine is one of the most powerful of the antidepressant oils. It has a sweet floral fragrance. It also has aphrodisiac and sedative properties.  It should be used in moderation.

3. Lavender – If you had to choose just one essential oil, choose lavender. It is versatile oil and is derived from the flowers of the herb.  Lavender has strong calming qualities and is effective for tension, depression, and insomnia.  Put a drop of lavender oil on your pillow at night.

4. Rose – The scent is very feminine. It is strongly antidepressant and has aphrodisiac properties… Try adding a few drops to your bath water

5. Sandalwood – This is a warm, sweet, woody essence that comes from the sandalwood tree. It has a calming, antidepressant effect and is also has aphrodisiac proprieties.

6. Lemon – It is refreshing, cleansing oil.  It can help with depression and fatigue. The oil comes from the peel of the fruit.

Which of these essential oils appeal to you?
