Review by Booklist Reviews

The subtitle to this guide to essential oils is no exaggeration. Everything from acne (jojoba) to hot flashes (cypress, peppermint, lemon, and more), earache (lavender, clove, oregano, and more), ringworm (geranium, cypress, and thyme), and psoriasis (lemon, tea tree, and grapefruit) is addressed. Following an introduction detailing her experience with her family—"there is not an illness in existence for which there isn't a plant that can potentially offer relief"—herb gardener and certified aromatherapist Fite presents basic tips on essential-oil use ("some can be toxic to children," "never touch to your eyes or ears"), usage warnings and contraindications (e.g., don't use citrus oil, which is phototoxic, before sun exposure), and therapeutic properties (clematis oil treats wounds, including blisters). A list of resources, including websites, rounds out this engaging, straightforward source for everyone exploring homeopathic and alternative medicines. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
