"I had chronic Fatigue syndrome, diarrhea, vomiting, allergies, aching all over, muscle weakness, hair loss (only to mention a few). I lost so much weight people asked me how much time I had left. I'm not kidding! After a couple of bites of food I would need a 2 hour nap. After 3 days of severe diarrhea and vomiting I ended up dehydrated in hospital where I was diagnosed with hyperactive thyroid (Graves disease). The medication they gave me was slowly destroying my thyroid (and who knows what else).
I was introduced to essential oils - oh,
what a change! My heart rate (previously 100 on a good
day) was now lowering. But I still needed help with my
diet. When I started using your cook book, I felt even
better. I had tried all the vegetarian diets but I was
always hungry. Now I eat like a king and feel like a million
dollars. As long as I stay on the foods from your cookbook,
I feel great and definitely experience the benefits of
cooking with essential oils. No more aches or tiredness
- I have lots of energy and am satisfied.
The recipes are easy to make and not time-consuming. The oils are so healing and a great addition to all recipes. I want to thank you for this wonderful cookbook - I actually enjoy cooking now and I have the energy to do it! Thank you."

Even though I became vegan ten years ago
at 13 years of age, I used to derive more pleasure from
preparing meals for my loved ones who ate meat and dairy.
Often I would cook up a storm for my family and then heat
something simple for myself in the microwave.
After reading The Essential oil Cookbook,
I have now incorporated the recipes and food principles
into my diet and that of my loved ones, so that we are
all eating healthier. Now I enjoy cooking not only for
others but for myself as well. Given that this is a lifestyle,
rather than a temporary dietary change, I am gradually
transforming my meals and my awareness of what I am eating
and why. So I still eat pita bread, hot chips and 2 minute
noodles (my treats), but make a conscious effort to base
my meals on fresh vegetables and organic grains.
After recovering from disordered eating
patterns, it is important for me to feel that I am not
depriving myself of food but gaining a variety of fruits,
vegetables and grains that I would not normally eat in
my conventional "tofu or vegeburger with salad"
My favourite recipes so far are Nymph
Avocado Dressing, Ancient Sage Dressing, Guatemala Salsa,
Creamy Mexican Guacamole, Taj Mahal Curry (without
agar powder which I can't locate), Thai Tempeh Loaf
(as burgers) and Aussie Burgers. These recipes
have become my staples.
I use the idea of rolled rice/oats with
a mixture of fresh and dried fruit as the basis of my
breakfasts which I soak the night before to save time.
Consequently I now eat two or three healthy meals a day
instead of one huge meal of anything I could cook up or
thaw in less than ten minutes!
When I read through the recipes my first
thought was that they looked great but I would never have
the time or motivation to make many of them. However,
I have found that I don't really have any problems with
time because dressings and so forth last several days
and burgers can be made in bulk and frozen. Many of the
recipes make a delicious main meal within 30 minutes.
Although my partner initially sniffed and gingerly tasted
his new vegetable dishes (being of the meat and three
vege only persuasion) he now requests servings of Guatemala
Salsa and Chateau Lyon Potatoes with Socrates
Sage Sauce and chicken with Boro Boro Lemongrass
Dressing to name a few.
Sometimes I substitute more expensive ingredients
with less expensive ones, but this does not seem to impact
on taste. Will keep you informed of future developments
in the area of health improvement as a result of these

"I can't praise this book high enough -
it's exactly what I've been looking for. For a long time
I've been wanting to use essential oils internally but
didn't know where to start. It's my favorite cookbook.
It's helping me find delicious substitutes for dairy products
so I can quit them. The recipes are so simple and they
taste good. I want to make every single recipe!

"This book is a work of art. If my house burned down, this book is one of two things I would grab - the rest I can do without!"
Last night I made Bangkok Soy Chicken and tonight I'm nursing a convalescing friend whom I'm picking up from the hospital after work - so I'm making some Bengal Ginger Soup. I intend to work/cook/eat my way through the entire book!. What a positive wonderfu and inspirational effect you've had on my life - even in this very short time-frame!

The Essential Oil Cookbook will create a revolutionary
breakthrough by demonstrating that essential oils can
be ingested safely and beneficially in food. This will
in turn help North America to join the rest of the world
in the medical rediscovery of pure essential oils as God-given
medicines. Menkit has taken the high road by providing
truly nutritious recipes. Even without the addition of
essential oils, these recipes would help anyone keep toxic
intestinal bacteria to a minimum. Using essential oils
in nutritious food daily, eating becomes a healing pathway.
As Hippocrates said "Let food be your medicine and medicine
your food." I sincerely hope many Americans will read
this book and use it to make positive changes in their
eating habits. The creation of a global paradise is in
our own hands - we create it by what we eat as well as
what we think. I love this book - thank you, Menkit, for
your wonderful global contribution. I definitely recommend
it to my readers all over the world."
Natural Home Health Care Using Essential Oils
"Eating pure, high-quality essential oils can improve circulation, oxygenation and protect against heart disease, dementia and cancer. Scientists have shown that limonene (found in citrus oils) can cause cancer cells to become stunted or even die. I recommend this book to all my patients as it combines the benefits of proper eating habits with the therapeutic value of essential oils in a way that is easy to understand and implement in our daily lives."
