I have been using essential oils in many of the skin care products I make for several years. Essential oils provide healing properties that you do not get with fragrance oils. Recently I reviewed the book “Beginners Guide to Essential Oils” by Christine Dalziel. Chris provides not only concise, easy to read information on a number of basic essential oils, but discusses dilution, use, and blending of oils.

Essential oils aren’t just for skin products, however. Chris provides instructions for making everything from food safe furniture polish to toothpaste.
Here is just a sample of the many recipes she provides in her book.
The wonderful smell of Frankincense and Myrrh reminds me of the Christmas Story when rare oils were brought to the Christ child.
Stuffy nose? This blend will help clear your nose in no time flat!
No more worries about household products that may be harmful to pets or children. Chris has developed this great furniture polish that is food safe and smells delicious!
This book comes in both the paperback and Kindle version. Just Click on the book link, to purchase the book. While there, you can also purchase any essential oils you need through my affiliate link. I am an affiliate of Amazon. Anything your purchase while on the link will provide a small commission to me.
Note: Please keep all essential oils out of the reach of children. Read directions and use and dilute oils as instructed. Many essential oils are harmful if ingested, or used on the skin undiluted.
I’ll have to check out this book! I love my Essential Oils and am always on the lookout for new recipes.
I noticed your disclaimer at the bottom about being harmful if digested or used undiluted…definitely a good precaution if you are getting your oils from a drugstore or other unknown source. I wonder if you’re familiar with Young Living? Their Seed to Seal promise ensures they produce only the highest quality oils! While you should still keep them out of reach of children, many of their EOs can be ingested or used neat because of the purity! It’s definitely a source of peace of mind for me when using oils in my house. Just wanted to pass along a tip!
Thanks, again, for sharing this book!
