    Essential oils are described as the "life force" or "essence" of plants. The most wonderful thing about essential oils is that they are available to everyone, and they are simple to use once the basic concepts are understood and the appropriate methods and procedures are observed.

    The best known way to use essential oils is through massage. In this comprehensive book there are many more ways to use the oils, for everything from arthritis and asthma to high blood pressure and constipation. Essential oils are now emerging as scientifically proven and accepted remedies for a variety of common conditions. The how and why certain oils heal still remains mysterious. Oils can help treat everyday ailments, whether it be strengthening the immune system, fighting bacteria and viruses, or lowering stress levels. They can be used to tone, relax and strengthen muscles. These oils help the body heal itself.

    This book features 109 oils and 450 remedies. The recipes are easy to follow, do not take a long time to make, and are quite inexpensive … the biggest cost is the oils. The oils are organized alphabetically, and each entry features the botanical name, a full description of how and why the oil is extracted, and its therapeutic uses.

    Angelica for example has a sweet, rich smell, is excellent in all skin care preparations both as a tonic and to soften and smooth rough, dry skin. It reduces inflammation and can be useful when applied to irritated skin. As a massage oil it purifies the body and acts as a lymphatic stimulator, draining the body of excess fluid, increasing energy and generally quickening the functioning of glands. It's also an excellent tonic for the entire digestive system as it strengthens the liver, stimulates appetite, aids digestion and generally boosts the whole digestive system.

    Herbalist Guido Masé explores the three classes of plants necessary for the healthy functioning of our bodies and minds: aromatics, bitters, and tonics. He explains how bitter plants ignite digestion, balance blood sugar, buffer toxicity, and improve metabolism; how tonic plants normalize the functions of our cells and nourish the immune system; and how aromatic plants relax tense organs, nerves, and muscles and stimulate sluggish systems, whether physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. He reveals how wild plants regulate our heart variability rate and adjust the way DNA is read by our cells, controlling the self-destructive tendencies that lead to chronic inflammation or cancer. Masé provides easy recipes to integrate them into meals as seasonings and as central ingredients in soups, stocks, salads, and grain dishes, as well as including formulas for teas, spirits, and tinctures.
