An Amazing, Faith-filled, Inspirational Book

In her quest to share the rich, abundant benefits of essential oils, Teri Secrest has written an amazing, faith-filled, inspirational book.

The book opens with Teri sharing her own journey with essential oils, which began with a youthful curiosity about why the wise men brought frankincense and myrrh for the baby Jesus. After a gift of lavender oil played a key role in stopping premature labor, allowing her to deliver a healthy, full-term baby, her research began in earnest.

Teri explains what essential oils are (the liquid in the leaf of a tree or bush that the plant cannot live without—hence, the term essential oil) and how the powerful, natural chemicals they contain

“help us to return to the image of God in which we were created. … Essential oils strengthen our bodies, support our health, and give us the boost we need to heal.”

This book not only explains some of the science behind the modern-day use of essential oils, it also goes into detail about the numerous Biblical references to these oils, including God’s specific recipes for holy anointing oil.

With the Biblical foundation established, Teri goes on to explain practical uses for specific individual essential oils and combinations of essential oils. She demonstrates how to ingest them, use them topically, and even use them in cooking.

Essential Oils is a beautifully illustrated, well-written practical guide for how we can get close to living the life God intended for us, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

This is a book you’ll use as a reference for years to come.

Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the publisher. The opinions expressed are mine.
