It’s a great little book!

This is really useful! I now know that some EOs can be used undiluted as perfume. Organic perfume is so expensive, so it’s a game changer to know I can use what I have at home! It’s handy to have this book to hand when making homemade products and I will definitely purchasing the bigger book in the future because not all of the EOs are in there.

Informative little book

I wanted a basic book to refresh my knowledge of a variety of oils having inadvertently thrown out my A to Z. This has all the important information. It is a quick reference if you have some knowledge but for a complete beginner might not give enough information about combining oils safely.

Thumbs Up

Bought as part of a gift and the price point made for a neat little something alongside one of the main bundles.


Informative reference to essential oils, their qualities, uses and contraindications. Good place to begin research into essential oils and their uses. Practical, accessible reference, beautiful illustrations, great layout.

Such a wonderful handy book - highly recommend

I’m only just starting out on my essential oil journey but this will certainly become my go-to for learning. A really easy to digest book that’s great to have on hand to treat any ailments etc.
