"The Chemistry of Essential Oils Made Simple: God's Love Manifest
by David Stewart, Ph.D., D.N.M.
Whether you have a background in chemistry or not, you will understand
and enjoy this book. It will enlighten and entertain you while demonstrating,
by the chemistry of essential oils, that Gods power and divine
nature can be seen through the things he has made. (Romans 1:20) Based
on both science and scripture, this book reveals the harmony between
the two. Dr. Stewart describes the relationship between the material
world and the spiritual world to explain how oils bring healing. Containing
analyses of more than 100 essential oils cross indexed by more than
40 tables containing more than 600 compounds, this is the most comprehensive
chemistry book on essential oils ever compiled, and the easiest to use
Phenomenal! This book hardly deserves to be deemed a dry category of
chemistry! Dr. Stewart makes, what is for many people a boring subject,
something alive and full of interest. For the first time, I understand
how chemistry and vibrational frequency relate. He has done a great service
for those of us in healing work and in the art of aromatherapy. The book
is truly a treasure for those with or without a scientific background.

As a nurse for almost 30 years, Dr. Stewarts book has finally given
me scientific permission to follow the whispers of God
in my heart. Ive always felt led in the care of the patients God
has brought to me, but I often yielded to what medicine mandates instead
of honoring Gods leadings. Dr. Stewart reminds each of us to listen
and be inspired by Gods handiwork. This is a historical work!. I
congratulate you and thank you, Dr. Stewart.

Your chemistry book is fabulous and will be a best-seller. I love the
humor, simplicity, depth of knowledge, and the way you have brought science
and religion together, as it should be. This is a book I definitely want
to carry here at my center. It will help the lay person, as well as the
scientist, to understand the profound healing effects of essential oils
within the human body and how to use that information to both select oils
and to prayerfully decide a course of action to facilitate healing. Thank
you so much for taking the time to write this book!

We are delighted to recommend this book. It is the first to address positively
the dilemma over supposedly toxic oils as well as the undoutedly beneficial
use of certain oils neat for certain conditions. It is refreshing to find
someone else who feels our wonderful essential oils are unnecessarily
maligned when all that is needed is more knowledge on the chemistry, which
this book provides. The book also rightly explains how tests done on animals
with single components or perfume quality oils cannot be related to the
use of genuine essential oils on people.

the chemistry of therapeutic essential oils and how they can be of value
to mankind.A great source for both the layman and the professional alike.
David has made the science and chemistry of essential oils easy to understand.

With a kiss of the Divine with nature, Dr. Stewart has created
another masterpiece! He has brilliantly woven his artistry to bring the
Spiritually etheric oils into the Scientific realm for our understanding
of nature's physicality and purpose. In this informative, practical and
down-to-earth book, Dr. Stewart takes the reader on a chemical journey
from the infinitesimally small structure of a molecule to the Infinite
Cosmos revealing God's signature in all of creation. God's love has also
manifested through Dr. Stewart's dedication in his written words. This
is a magnificent must read book for anyone using essential oils.

A truly inspired work of art. A blending of the spiritual
and scientific wonders of the gift of essential oils on this planet. This
book opens up a whole new world of intrigue with fascinating presentations
that lead to an understanding of how and why oils work in sync with our
physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies. Dr. Stewart creatively weaves
in stories which are so valuable for insight, clarification, and making
this a wonderfully flowing story of Gods blessings. This book also
has the best and clearest explanations I have ever found of pH, allergies,
and other health-related topics. This is definitely the chemistry of essential
oils made simple . . . as well as profound!

I love reading your chemistry book. Your introduction even made me cry.
Your heart is so pure and wonderful, it so shines in your book. It is
so evident that you LOVE what your writing about, that it makes reading
the book so much fun! I've read the first 60 pages, and I'm excited about
the rest of the book.

An excellent book! Informative for the novice yet advanced for the professional
as well. Well-written and easy to read because of Dr. Stewarts down-to-earth
visual explanations. Far from a dry chemistry book. Just reading the Table
of Contents makes you want to dive right into the book.

This is a much needed book. There is no other publication like it. David
has done a marvelous job in presenting the chemistry of essential oils
in a clear, readable, and enjoyable way for everyone. A good scientific
work. Lots of good data. I recommend this book to everyone who uses therapeutic
oils and wants to understand how and why they work.

What a pleasure to read your new book. It is so enlightening. I thought
your classes were great, but i must say that your book has really given
me a deeper and fuller understanding of the chemistry of the oils in a
way that is both useful in my practice and also for all people that are
searching for answers to how these oils work and why they work so well.
Your book is easy reading and the content perfect for myself inasmuch
as I have no background in chemistry. I intend to keep it with the rest
of my most important reference books.

Man has nothing to offer for the extremes of pain and disease but to
put one to sleepnumb to reality. God offers everything to awaken
and give llife. David Stewart hax espressed this well in moledular terms.

Although I had made numerous attempts to study the chemistry of essential
oils over the years, it wasn't until I read Essential Oil Chemistry Made
Easy, by Dr. David Stewart, that I was able to achieve breakthroughs in
my understanding with such ease. I encourage you to gaze in childlike
delight while David gently lays his hand on your shoulder and focuses
the lens as you read. Take a closer look, and learn more of our Creator,
His love and care for you, through the intricate design He has placed
in these precious, treasured gifts of essential oils. "To get understanding
is to be chosen above silver." Proverbs 16:16b

In this information-packed book, Dr. Stewart, a truly gifted writer and
teacher takes us step-by-step from the basic building blocks of the physical
universe to an understanding of how essential oils fit into the Divine
Plan. This wonderful new book transcends the compartmentalism of modern
science and religion, lifting us into a refreshing space where reality
becomes a reverent understanding of Gods magnificent creation.

This book is fabulous. Its brilliant. An invaluable resource to
any student studying essential oils. Your knowledge and very honest views
of the use of esssential oils are excellent, tactfully described, and
yet humerous to read. The information is really superb. I am adding this
to my list of recommended books for my students as an absolute must.

Hes done it again! Dr. Stewart's new book proves once again that
nature is truly a testimony to Godeven at the scale of atoms and
electrons. Even a child can see why chemistry makes sense when described
in terms of the Creator. If chemistry could have been this clear when
I went to school, it would actually have been fun. The awesome order of
God's creation on a molecular level helps me appreciate His providence
more than ever before. A treasury of scientific detail in common language
that gives expanded meaning to Gods provisions for his children.
This book fills an important need not met by any other publication.

It is often said the best way to make a contribution to society is to
a need and fill it. Dr. David Stewart has done just that by offering technical,
scientific, and what could have been very challenging information in a
simplified, interesting, easy-to-understand manner. For thousands of us
who use, work with, and educate about therapeutic-grade essential oils,
this is the piece we have needed to better understand how to choose our
oils wisely for the most effective results. It affords us the opportunity
to become more professional in our craft. Dr. Stewart is a rare individual
who possesses the skill to combine his left-brain knowledge and expertise
with a compassionate heart and a desire to bring his vast storehouse of
information to the lay person in clear, understandable terms. This book
is an amazing blend of the factual and the spiritual, woven together with
Davids magical touch, which has produced a brilliant piece of work.
This is an invaluable resource, and will take a prominent place in my
YLEO Ambassador Master Star
In his book, on The Chemistry of Essential Oils, Dr. David Stewart has,
to my knowledge, gone where no author has ever gone before. He explains
the complex organic chemistries, as well as some practical uses, of these
natural plant-distilled oils so that anyone with a high-school education
can comprehend them. And he has presented the material in a wonderfully
engaging way, undergirded by a devout Scriptural perspective as well!
Readers will find in this volume a fresh, challenging, and complementary
alternative point of view for the practice of medicine and the healing
arts, which no doubt will stimulate some beneficial and much needed debate.
I believe Dr. Stewart is on the cutting edge of a gentle revolution
in American healthcare.
