    I have a friend who uses essential oils to promote health. I have another who eschews medical use and will only use essential oils for cleaning. I have a family member who believes in bleach, chemicals, and antibiotics. If you do an internet search on essential oils, there's an insane amount of information, and it's frequently conflicting.

    Enter The Healing Power of Essential Oils by Eric Zielinski, D.C. In this book, Dr. Zielinski, who is a health researcher and aromatherapist, begins to disentangle the truth, half-truth, propaganda, and nonsense that can surround the use of essential oils. In my opinion, he's more evidence-based than what is normally found in the blogsphere or essential oil Facebook groups. He's also quick to state that in some oils, there just hasn't been a lot of research or there is still more research needed.

    This book covers numerous topics: fundamentals of aromatherapy, using essential oils safely, how to start off, house cleaning with essential oils, basic essential oil recipes for wellness, more advanced recipes for specific physical issues with an emphasis on women's health, and more! It took me a few weeks to read through this book and I was bit overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information, including a few parts that were very scientific. That being said, Dr. Z's approach is to start with what you can. No, you can't completely change everything all at once. Integrate what you can and add more as you learn.

    And I did learn a lot in the book! Overall, it's very understandable and Dr. Z lays down the safety issues and basic procedures at the very beginning. He also repeats that you should listen to you body, discontinue use if something seems off, and that we all have biological differences stemming from gender, race, family history, etc... therefore, what works great for one person may only give moderate relief to someone else.

    So, did this book convert me to essential oils? Maybe. It's definitely opened my mind up to them and exposed some harmful substances I wasn't aware of. (example: toxicity of hand sanitizer) I do plan to start small and give some of this a try. I will keep The Healing Power of Essential Oils by Eric Zielinski, D.C. on my bookshelf for future reference.

    One last note: Dr. Z. is a proponent of Biblical health and mentions prayer and Biblical health guidelines throughout the book. If you are uncomfortable with that, this book may not be for you.

    This book is targeted at people interested in or just beginning to use essential oils for health. I have been using essential oils for years and have read many essential oil books. I appreciated that the author approached essential oils from both a Christian perspective and a scientific one--that they are medicines and have complex chemical profiles. He explained the basics of essential oils without getting too scientific for a beginner. His recipes were not highly complicated and tended to use the same 15 or so oils that he recommended earlier. However, many of the recipes also had an oil or two that weren't on that list because the recipes replicated the exact oil combinations used in a study he cited.

    The author based his information on scientific studies and information from experts. However, some of the scientific studies that he cited were based on animal studies, chemical components of the oil rather than the whole oil, or were done in a petri dish, so (as the author notes) we don't know for certain if the results accurately show how that oil will act in humans.

    Most of the oils he recommended are not expensive, but a few are. Beginners often look at the price of a small bottle and balk at it without realizing how little you use at a time. Overall, I thought he did a good job of covering safety, suggesting useful essential oils have around, and providing instructions on how to use them. He included recipes for health, cleaning house, personal care products, and even pets.

    This book is a great reference for essential; oils. I'm very sensitive to side effects of prescription medication and recently developed a disease as a direct result of a diabetic drug, I'm now using essential oils to combat this condition. I first took Dr. Zielinski's online web lessons. I'm glad there are many oil recipes to try. Thank you for writing this book.
