The Essential Oils Diet: Lose Weight and Transform Your Health with the Power of Essential Oils and Bioactive Foods by Eric Zielinski
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I took this book out from the library hoping to learn more about essential oils and how they might be used to assist with weight loss.
Aromatherapy has been around for a long time, and although considered an alternative therapy thanks to a lack of research, given the power of smell and the fact that these oils can and do end up in our blood stream, it seems possible that they have a true and even measurable physiologic effect.
Unfortunately, essential oils only make a guest appearance, as they are barely even mentioned.
Much of the book deals with lifestyle transformation. The authors, a husband and wife duo, discuss the tenants of successful change. Interestingly, I felt like there was quite a bit of good advice, just not much that related specifically to essential oils.
That said, I did learn a few things, and the authors do provide "recipes" for different essential oil mixtures and applications. I guess I was hoping for a book that explored what research exists and offered more substance.
