What others are saying about The Beginners’ Book of Essential Oils
“The first book that I read through this morning is Christine Dalziel’s book on essential oils (The Beginners’ Book Of Essential Oils – Joybilee Farm Media). I am hooked and excited! Christine offers a very uncomplicated yet thorough guide on how to begin using essential oils. She suggests starting with three essential oils – lavender, lemon, and peppermint. If you are a novice there is a lot you will learn from this book, and if you are well versed in the use of essential oils you will enjoy the many recipes and gorgeous monographs. Christine has been a homesteader for 30 years and she has been working with herbs and essential oils since 1982. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.” — Marlene Adelman, Founder and Director, The Herbal Academy
“Christine does a great job of making essential oil use simple instead of overwhelming. This is a book I wish I had years ago when I first started using essential oils.” — Angi Schneider, SchneiderPeeps
“…this Beginners’ Book of Essential Oils is a wonderful source of good, common sense, and practical counsel to help you sift through noise and learn how to effectively and frugally add essential oils to your natural health care arsenal. I love that Christine shares just 10 easily and economically sourced essential oils and then gives you over 80 different and unique ways to use them. The glossary of terms in the back is an incredibly helpful tool to aid in defining the numerous properties that oils contain. She wisely shares that sometimes essential oils aren’t the best and most effective application to the trouble and teaches how to make an herbal oil infusion which is a gentler choice (at times)…” Mrs. V.
“This was an excellent and inspiring intro to essential oils. I loved all the recipes and break down of their uses. This book is clean and easy to read. I also appreciated the info on infusing oils and storing them too. This book is great for beginners learning the wonders of essential oils!” Isis Loran, Little Mountain Haven
“With all the overwhelming information out there on essential oils, it’s hard to know where to get started. Christine’s book is not only beautifully designed, it is chock full of information that makes me feel informed, but not swamped. I highly recommend this book for people who are just beginning their journey with essential oils.” — Jessica Lane, The 104 Homestead
“I learned so much from this book. It’s a great part of my ‘essential’ farming library.” Allison H.
