In order to keep Essential oils affordable and available to everyone, distributors must talk about them in a highly generalized sense regarding the various ways essential oils can support your 12 body systems.

If you want to dive deeper, I recommend the following sources

Google &-or PubMed

Look up the following chemical constituent categories:


Or check out specific chemical constituents, e.g.:

  • Beta caryophyllene (e.g. Copaiba)
  • Methyl salicylate, menthol, eugenol (e.g. Panaway TM)
  • Alpha-pinene (e.g. Frankincense)
  • D-limonene (e.g. Lemon)

If you’re not big on web searches and want to learn from a scientific angle…

The Healing Intelligence of Essential Oils – Kurt Schnaubelt (Illuminating & affordable)

The Chemistry of Essential Oils Made Simple: David Stewart (deep dive, doctrinal)

Essential Oils Integrative Medical Guide: Gary D. Young (the book Gary wrote before he was censored by the FDA in what he could say about essential oils and their medicinal applications)

If you just want a good reference guide to look up specific oils, blends and uses…

My favorite is the Essential Oils Pocket Reference available from Life Science Publishing. You’ll receive this as a free gift when you sign up for your PSK using distributor #10672500. E-mail with promo code “GUIDE” after you sign up. 

I also use the app version of this guide, “Ref Guide for Essential Oils” by Abundant Health

If you want to learn about essential oils from a lifestyle angle…
