Author: Terri Secrest

Genre: Christian Non-fiction, Alternative Therapies

Have you ever wondered why the wise men brought frankincense and myrrh for the baby Jesus? As a curious and highly enthusiastic child, health and wellness coach Teri Secrest asked everyone she knew and met, but no one could tell her. She grew up thinking it was just a nice little story…but never stopped wondering.

This thirst for knowledge sparked Teri’s twenty-three-year quest to learn about essential oils. It has taken her to the far corners of the world—from Croatia and France to Oman, Israel, and beyond.

Teri has written this book to share the mystery, the romance, and the ageless intrigue of essential oils. She hopes you experience the Father’s love as He continually lavishes His children with these exquisite oils and you feel this rich, biblical history come alive in your spirit. Teri wants you to see how miraculous your body is and how it’s designed to heal itself when given proper nourishment and support.

Essential Oils: God’s Extravagant Provision for Your Health offers practical how-to’s that you can use immediately, including the use of oils for romance, balancing hormones, cooking, cleaning, pets, children, and fragrance, as well as health concerns such as stress, negative emotions, trouble sleeping, weight gain, and anxiety. You will find practical guidance to regain and maintain health naturally.

As you gain this understanding, Teri believes you will change the next generation as you discover the hidden secrets of these biblical plants and how to incorporate them into your everyday life.

My Thoughts

Essential Oils by Teri Secrest is a book designed to help believers understand God’s plan for health through the plants he created. It honestly goes into more than just essential oils. The author discusses a Biblical view of health, wellness, and even marriage. I was intrigued by this book because I have heard so many people using essential oils lately and I was hoping to find out why. I appreciate that the author explains that oils are not a substitute for medical care. I found the Biblical perspective to be very sound and I really appreciated her explanations of what her core values are and how God’s creation (and oils) fit in. I think this book is great for people of all ages who are interested in learning more about how essential oils can augment their lives. To be clear, this is not a scientific book, rather it is an analysis of a Scripture and an explanation of how one woman interprets it with today’s oils. I received a digital copy of this book from the author with no obligations. These opinions are entirely my own.
