“Essential Oils for Beginners” is one of a slew of titles in the “For Beginners” series published by Llewellyn Publishing by Kac Young. I love this particular series and am happy to see titles like these showing up in an already successful line for Llewellyn.

I thought this was a very comprehensive book speaking not only to the new age crowd in the latter parts of the book but to all those people who want to get into essential oils and don’t know where to start. This is like your starter kit. They give you the best 20 oils to put into your collection and speak to any number of things these specific oils can do for you, heal for you, etc.

This is one of those books that you will need to keep on your reference shelf to refer back to often. I decided to try the pairing of lemon and peppermint. I don’t think I would have thought those two scents went together but they blend beautifully and promote a sense of awake-ness and rejuvenation. Love it so much! I have wanted to experiment with essential oils for a very long time yet didn’t know where to start. This is helping me to open up to all the possibilities that oils can bring to my life and my health.

If you love books in the “For Beginners” series, definitely check this one out too! You won’t be disappointed.


I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.
