Essential Oil Resources:

Printed Reference Guides

Most plants will teach anyone who is interested.
If you have the interest, follow up on it and see for yourself.
~Eliot Cowan, author of the book, Plant Spirit Medicine
Did you ever feel that there is SO much to learn about essential oils? I know that I did at one time.
Luckily, we only need to learn on an ‘as-needed’ basis. What I found was that when someone would ask a question such as, “What oil could feel good on an unsettled stomach?” I would look it up, and then I would remember that association. So, little by little I learned a lot.
I also have noticed that, as soon as someone starts to use essential oils, they know things about the oils that I don’t. That’s because each of you have your own area of interest, and find oils to help you with that. I love learning from all of you!
And fortunately for us, there is a wealth of resources out there. This newsletter discusses two of the most popular and useful printed resources for you.

Essential Oil reference books

Below are my two favorite essential oil reference books. Both are well worth the investment. Each comes in a larger, more comprehensive desk version and a smaller, more portable ‘pocket’ or ‘quick’ version. If you are on a budget, start with the smaller guide and when you are ready, invest in the full-size reference book.

Essential Oils Desk Reference (EODR)

The EODR is considered by many to be their #1 go-to guide.


This book explains all you need to know about the oils: what, when, why, and how to use them. It is available in a hard cover binder, an online version, and a pocket guide.

Quick Reference Guide for Using Essential Oils, by Connie and Alan Higley

I like the Higley Quick Reference Guide because it has some different topics in it than the EODR does. I recommend purchasing the small version of this guide and the large version of the EODR.

The EODR is considered by many to be their #1 go-to guide.
