This post is sponsored by eVitamins. All thoughts and opinions are my own and are not to be taken as medical advice. I am not only excited to share my experience with essential oils, I get to share another book added to my regularly referenced collection.
I've been on the fence about ordering essential oils for about a year. I was afraid I'd harm my child or myself with the oils. I also was annoyed by the way MLM distributors would push me to buy a huge kit, rather than letting me purchase a trial size of something. After reading the book below, I was better informed and ready to dive into essential oils and all their benefits.
Now I have several essential oils and the carrier oils, diffuser, and application bottles that are needed to put them to use. I am using them for myself, my child and my home. My favorite brands are NOW Foods and eVitamins.
Aromatherapy for Everyone is written to help you “discover the scents of health and happiness with essential oils”. The book contents include information about essential oils and their history. Your questions are answered, including:
“When did Aromatherapy arrive on the scene?”
“Why do aromatics work?“
“How do I use essential oils?“
The basic aromatic recipes and applications are covered in this book, including baths, compresses, inhalation and direct application. It is recommended that you always follow the directions exactly since direct application must be with a carrier oil. (Please read the book for full details.)
I personally love the essential oils have multiple uses, simply for their pleasant aromas or for therapeutic purposes. I have only tried a handful of the essential oils covered in this book. The 47 essential oils come from eight families of aromas: citrus, floral, herbaceous, camphoraceous, spicy, resinous, woody and earthy. My favorite aroma family is floral or herbaceous while my husband's favorite is citrus. Each of the 47 oils has its own section (consisting of a few pages) providing therapeutic uses, application, mixing, extraction method and safety information. There are also fun facts throughout the book.
You can also flip to the back of the book and find an applicable oil for your ailment or issue. I will be sharing my favorite essential oils and the benefits my family has personally experienced soon. Until then, you can enjoy your own copy of the book or $5.00 off your first order at eVitamins.com. Continue reading to find out more about the book.
