Though some people think I have knowledge that just comes to me, the facto of it is that I have done tons of research, and I own a lot of reference books. My knowledge is a result of years of accumulation, and I have learned a lot from many different books, papers, writings, and studies. This list is in no way comprehensive, but includes some of my top favorite go-to references.

Here are some of my favorite reference books!

Essential Oils

Human Anatomy

  • Neuroscience by Sinauer Associates. The best description of the sense of smell I have ever read.


Diet and Nutrition

Personal Development

  • 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey. This impactful book is a guide to transforming your thoughts and actions to bring about positive change.
  • Strengths Finder by Tom Rath. Understanding your strengths can help you hone in on your direction, brand, and focus.

Yoga and Meditation

  • Aroma Yoga by Tracy Griffiths combines two of my favorite things: essential oils and yoga. This is a great book for beginners.
  • Yoga Sutras of Patanjali by Sri Swami Satchidananda. This valuable book provides a complete manual for the study and practice of Raja Yoga. 
  • Just Sit: A Meditation Guidebook by Sukey Novogratz. I love this book because it offers simple steps to developing a meditation routine.
