Es­sen­tial oils are the lat­est craze in the home­party market, but these nat­u­ral health prod­ucts pack a much more pow­er­ful ben­e­fit than kitchen gad­gets and fash­ion items. Wor­wood was an es­sen­tial-oil ex­pert well be­fore the cur­rent trend. The Com­plete Book of Es­sen­tial Oils and

Aro­mather­apy of­fers decades of wis­dom (this is the 25th An­niver­sary edi­tion, af­ter all) on these age-old reme­dies. Her book high­lights the power of oils with­out the hype.

Im­pres­sively thor­ough, well or­ga­nized, and with a clear ta­ble of con­tents, Wor­wood’s book is eas­ily nav­i­ga­ble to find in­for­ma­tion symp­tom by symp­tom, oil by oil, or topic by topic (such as work­place or travel). There are chap­ters ded­i­cated to men’s, women’s, and chil­dren’s health. Each sec­tion has a brief back­ground on the con­di­tion or is­sue be­ing dis­cussed and in-depth in­struc­tions on how to use es­sen­tial oils to help: what oils to use, how to mix or ap­ply them, and what re­sults to ex­pect. And es­sen­tial oils are not just for su­per­fi­cial or mi­nor con­di­tions: Wor­wood show­cases their ben­e­fits for life-threat­en­ing or chronic con­di­tions like can­cer or mul­ti­ple scle­ro­sis.

Wor­wood’s tone is pos­i­tive and prag­matic. With ben­e­fits for whole-body health, home, and beauty, the prom­ise of es­sen­tial oils seems too good to be true, but Wor­wood’s re­search, ex­pe­ri­ence, and dili­gent in­struc­tion, along with her calm voice, prove the might of nat­u­ral oils.

While even es­sen­tial-oil experts can learn from this book, it’s be­gin­ner-friendly as well, with back­ground in­for­ma­tion on what es­sen­tial oils are, where they come from, and how they can be used. This book is a vi­tal re­source for any­one look­ing for sim­ple, nat­u­ral, ef­fec­tive ways to live a healthy life, from par­ents to teach­ers to health pro­fes­sion­als or al­ter­na­tive-health pro­fes­sion­als (like mas­sage ther­a­pists and fit­ness coaches).
