Essential Oils for Healing

Review by Lisa VanWilliams
If you are looking to move away from medical and pharmaceutical solutions to more natural cures, Essential Oils for Healing by author Vannoy Gentles Fite is a great place to start for the beginner. Learn how to treat ailments like sunburn, dry skin, anxiety, repel insects, & reduce sore muscles all naturally with oils. Over 400 ailments and recipes can be found in the book, with all subjects in alphabetical order.
"There is not an illness in existence for which there isn't a plant that can potentially offer relief."
Oils can be expensive, but so are prescriptions. Vannoy goes on to say that essential oils are "just as effective -or more effective - in treating illness as man-made chemical drugs". For example, a 15ml single of lavender oil from Doterra ( for goes $28. Lavender oil is one of the most popular oils, and it has been around for thousands of years because of it's number of uses and benefits. A few drops go a long way.

Sunburn? Try this recipe from her book:

Vannoy resides in Texas and has been a herb gardener for over 40 years, and she's also a certified aromatherapist. She goes over the basics about the do's and don't of oils, the 10 most popular oils, then she breaks down the oils and specifically what they treat. She also gives a list of resources where she recommends buying the oils from (reputable companies). Beware of knock off oils as they are abundant. The book will be available for sale July 5th, 2016 for $22.99. You can find it on Amazon here:
