This is a beautiful, unique book!

Be warned, however- this is not a magical recipe book, packed full with recipes for magical oil blends. Instead, Mixing Essential Oils for Magic gives readers the tools needed to mix and create their own personal essential blends for magic- based on plant type, scent, high notes, low notes, and the individual magical properties of various botanicals.

This is a must have book for witches who are interested in natural magic, as well as homemade beauty. You can then

The info on what the Essential oils can be used for can be found in a lot of other book, BUT the information on blending is why you want this one. I have been using EOs this way for 30 years and have never seen as good a how to blend them as I have found here. I would say this is a must have just for the blending info, if you use the the EOs for magic or therapeutically.

This is a quite informative book on oils and herbs and their relations. I picked this up from the library, but am definitely going to purchase a copy for myself.

This book focuses on how to blend essential oils for use in magic and ritual, and yes, that's pretty much what the title promises. But while I'm guessing many books on essential oils include a lot of recipes, or are only recipes, there are hardly any in this book. Kynes has included maybe four recipes in the entire book, mainly as examples. Instead, the strength of this book is Kynes's detailed explanation of how to blend essential oils effectively. She has chapters on blending by botanical fami ...more

Love his book. This is exactly what I want when I am exploring the essential oils. This book explores the essential oils in 3 perspectives - energy of the oil (as above so below), scent (note) and biological origins of the oil.
I am constantly referring to the book each time I blend.

This is a GREAT guide for using essential oils in your magic. Terrific reference guide with useful indices in the back. Honestly, despite all the great info in the front of the book regarding blending oils, and the oils themselves (AND carrier oils, she does not neglect those!) the real need for this book is the indices. It's information I've not found anywhere else.

If you use essential oils in your craft, you need this and Valerie Ann Worwood's book.

It had a lot of useful information, it was basically an encyclopedia. There is nothing in it that you cant just google.
Love it! Almost exactly what I had wanted. Unlike other books I have found on oils and magic, this actually explained why the oils have certain beliefs attached to them and their history and cultural significance, which I find to be the most interesting and useful part of magic and perfume. Not just like, IDK, Love is blahblahblah oil, end of story, no explanation, which I see all the time in these books. Not as in depth as I would have liked, but this is a practical book for mixing your own oil ...more

I love this book! Lots of wonderful information on mixing and the origins of various oils. I love how it is broken down in various ways and then cross referenced to make searching easier. I'll be looking for more of her books for sure. ...more
