Just the Essentials: How Essential Oils Can Heal Your Skin, Improve Your Health, and Detox Your Life
Best price for this book: $ 9.59
The author of Skin Cleanse returns with a comprehensive guide to the ultimate ingredient for living an all-natural, plant-based lifestyle: essential oils.
For millennia, essential oils have played a key role in health and beauty rituals. From references in the Bible (frankincense and myrrh) to Hippocrates (who documented the effects of oils from over 300 plants) to Ancient Egypt (Cleopatra pioneered the use of fragrance), essential oils have been revered throughout human history for their healing powers and their unparalleled scent.
But in modern times, they’ve often been misunderstood, underappreciated, even cast as "dangerous"—and relegated to the dusty shelves of health food stores. That is, until recently. Today they’re back in the spotlight as increasing numbers of consumers are looking for all-natural alternatives to skincare products and opting for fragrance-free detergents and soaps, natural remedies for common ailments, and toxin-free home cleaning solutions.
Enter Adina Grigore, owner and founder of the wildly popular all-natural skincare line SW Basics. A former essential oil skeptic, Grigore learned everything she could about these potent plant-based compounds when she began formulating her products. And what she learned was that essential oils are some of the most powerful, healing, health-promoting compounds found in nature. That, and they smell pretty great too.
In Just the Essentials, Grigore offers a 21st-century guide to these ancient oils, offering a fresh, fun, and authoritative overview of what they are and how they can be easily incorporated into anyone’s life. From plant-based medicine to all-natural skincare to safer and cleaner household products to aromatherapy, this handy and entertaining guide provides detailed advice for a wide array of oils, safety guidelines, and a range of do-it-yourself recipes to get started. Inside you'll discover such fun facts as:
- Tea tree oil is a powerful antibacterial that is proven to be as effective for treating acne as benzoyl peroxide; it also kills oral bacteria and is a life-saver for tooth infections.
- Cinnamon oil is a circulation-booster that helps to ease everyday aches and pains as well as headaches (even migraines).
- Peppermint oil is brimming with antimicrobial properties; peppermint oil can be used for everything from alleviating digestive problems to cleaning your kitchen counters.
With lists of the best oils for beginners; instructions for diffusing and safe handling; and DIY recipes from dish soap to toothpaste to facial masks, Just the Essentials makes it easy and enjoyable to reap the many benefits of these pure plant extracts.

Best price for this book: $ 11.61
From skincare expert and founder of the thriving organic skincare line SW Basics comes a comprehensive yet simple guide to switching to an all-natural skincare regime.
As savvy consumers, we’ve become all too aware that products labeled as “healthy” and “all-natural” are actually full of processed ingredients. But what about the “natural” face wash or “organic moisturizer” we use on our skin every day?
Like prepackaged food, many beauty products don’t deliver the benefits they promise, and that eye-catching packaging camouflages a host of unhealthy ingredients. In Skin Cleanse, skincare expert Adina Grigore teaches us how to move to a true natural regimen, because when you detox from your skincare regimen, your body reaps the rewards.
Skin Cleanse helps readers diagnose and understand the underlying causes of their individual skin problems and offers all-natural recipes—using inexpensive ingredients that can be found at the grocery store to treat them effectively.
From learning about how diet and lifestyle factors affect the quality of your skin to examining what is in the dozens of products we use every day, Grigore helps you take control over what goes on your skin and shows you step-by-step how to develop healthy habits that will last a lifetime.
