This is one of the first books I got when I wanted to learn about essential oils. It was easy to understand and gave me the facts I needed to start off with solid understanding of how oils work. I would recommend this to anyone, but it's great for a novice.
I was lent the first edition of this title to read back in 2017, when I was still a nay-sayer of all things. I own the second edition and - prior to the C*V*D world stuff, I was lending it to friends who turned from nay-sayers to YL customers. Great resource to own and share!
I just completed reading The Essential Oil Truth book. I found it to be the most comprehensive, yet easy to understand book on Essential Oils. I highly recommend anyone interested in learning about essential oils to pick up this book and read and re-read it as needed. Thank you Jen!
So far, this is exactly what I expected. I am only at Lesson 4, but glad the facts are stated and no fluff.
This is absolutely THE best book I've ever read and I've read MANY! SO MUCH INFORMATION presented in such a clear and easily understood manner! I am sharing this with ALL of my friends and family and buying more!!!
