DK Discovery Day ~ Essential Oils ~ GIVEAWAY!

The world of essential oils is something that I’m fairly new to…but am thoroughly enjoying! The more I learn about them, the more I use them, and the more benefits I see from them. At this time of year we often resolve to live healthier, and when it feel like there must be a million different cold and flu germs hanging around, we often look for new or different ways to keep us and our families healthy. For us, I look to natural means’ to do this.

This winter I’ve enjoyed checking out a new book from DK CanadaEssential Oils. The title tells you what lies inside – all kinds of natural remedies, recipes and tips on using essential oils to treat problems, improve your well-being, and more. This book is great for someone who is new to the world of essential oils. It has a profile of each oil (88 in total!) and then goes on to share all-natural remedies for home, beauty and some of our most common ailments. As we’ve come to expect from our DK Canada books, there are plenty of full color photographs. The illustrated A to Z reference section was a great addition to the book too.

Essential Oils will be a wonderful reference book for me in the coming year. I can’t wait to learn more about the different essential oils and learn how to safely use them with maximum benefits for our family. If you’re starting out (or would just like another great guide book or idea book on hand), this is a wonderful book with loads of great ideas and tips to add to your bookshelf!
