Essential oils are highly concentrated oils from various plants. They are often used medicinally, but many people are unaware of just how potent they are. I’ve read that one drop of essential oil is about 1,000 times more powerful than a comparable amount of an herbal preparation. This means that there are some safety considerations, since you definitely don’t want to overdo it with essential oils.
The Essential Oils Handbook, written by Jennie Harding, is filled with advice on how to best use these oils, as well as information on how the plants from which they’re derived have been used as traditional medicine for centuries. The book is very comprehensive, with 288 pages.
Pregnant women should not use essential oils, except under direction of a physician or midwife.Buy Now
