Essential Oils: Separating Truth From Myth dispels 25 common essential oil myths, providing a sound and informative answer to each one. You are certain to walk away as a more educated consumer, better equipped to use essential oils safely and effectively.
From Kristen, trained herbalist and holistic health educator:
I remember when I first heard about essential oils. I had no idea what they were. When friends started using them, claiming all sorts of benefits, I was even more confused. What were these oils, and what exactly they were doing with them?
Eventually I started my own oil collection, buying the least expensive oils for fear of running up a high bill. Some of them just sat on my shelf because I still wasn’t sure how to use them. Then I dove into folk uses and had a few successes, but I also learned a few lessons the hard way with some unfortunate mistakes.
Later, when I started my formal training in herbalism and natural health, I realized that the world of essential oils is simply saturated with myths. A deep concern developed in me as I saw friends, acquaintances, and blog readers following this misinformation like I did at one time. Even worse, I saw others using oils in ways that were unsafe, ineffective, or just plain wasteful.
Essential Oils: Separating Truth from Myth is the result of that concern. I want every single person who reads this book to walk away from it with a greater understanding of essential oil basics and an ability to use oils both safely and effectively.
There’s no need to stay confused or misinformed when it comes to essential oils. Better information is available!
