I am thrilled to announce the release of The Unspoken Truth About Essential Oils by Stacey Haluka and Kayla Fioravanti. Ironically Stacey’s essential oil injury occurred the same year that I broke my silence about dangerous essential practices taking place in multi-level companies. Both of us ended up in the same place, with the same mission, at the same time in 2017—hence the birth of The Unspoken Truth About Essential Oils. And what a dream team of contributors with the Foreword by Dr. Robert Pappas (also know as Dr. P.) of Essential Oil University, an Adverse Reaction Report from Robert Tisserand of the Tisserand Institute, Conclusions by Martin Watt of Aroma Medicine, and the Epilogue by Sylla Sheppard-Hanger of the Atlantic Institute. I can’t even express how honored I am to have worked with everyone.
Some may say that aromatherapists and experts in the essential oil world have long been speaking the truth about essential oils. This is true. But within some multi-level companies basic safety rules have gone unspoken, silenced and shunned. Stacey and I wrote this book with the desire to reach people BEFORE they get injured. The Unspoken Truth About Essential Oils is available in full-color paperback and on Kindle.

A Few Early Praises for The Unspoken Truth About Essential Oils
With more people exploring aromatherapy and essential oils it is important to understand they are not a harmless substance. In this book Stacey has been brave enough to share her experience. Not only was Stacey harmed by essential oils, but the damage was perpetuated by individuals that were not trained properly. Kayla helps to clear up some of the many myths that are spread concerning essential oils. This is a good precautionary true story about why you should seek out multiple sources when researching and educating yourself. This is a valuable book for anyone interested in using essential oils. Every aromatherapist should have a copy of The Unspoken Truth About Essential Oils to share with their clients, I know I will. ~Anna Pageau–Certified Aromatherapist and Herbalist for humans and animals at Anna’s Musings
Essential oils are wonderful and natural healing substances. However when they are not used properly they can be very harmful. It’s time the world understands just how powerful they are! I am so happy Stacey was brave enough to share her story with the world. The Unspoken Truth About Essential Oils is so important to the average user. Many people have stories like this but are too afraid to speak up. Thank you for addressing such an important topic! Essential oil safety should always be first and foremost. ~Melissa Clymer –Clinical Aromatherapist, Traditional Naturopath and Herbalist at Sweet Willow Spirit Therapies
The Unspoken Truth About Essential Oils is a must read! As a professional in this industry I see injuries from essential oils on a regular basis, many of them could have and should have been prevented. I am grateful to Stacey for sharing her story and I believe that together with Kayla’s expertise, they will bring awareness to safe essential oil usage and proper education. I am hopeful that this book will reduce these life-changing injuries one copy at a time! ~N. Ruth Nelson–Certified Aromatherapist at DeRu Extracts
With the increasing popularity of essential oils, the amount of people reporting adverse reactions and injuries is ever increasing. Unfortunately, those that try to share their stories of injuries are often shunned and attacked…this is why stories like Stacey’s are important to share with the general public. I commend Stacey for her bravery in sharing her personal and painful journey. I hope her story will give others the courage to speak up against unsafe essential oil practices. ~Grant Greene
This book is such a timely and much needed realistic view of what’s really happening in the growing sect of essential oil. Stacey Haluka and Kayla Fioravanti are a wonderful pairing of two women on different plains with a common goal….to inform the public of the real and present unspoken truth about essential oils and the current misguided trends of use and information being widely perpetuated. And in the process, hopefully prevent more people from experiencing life altering events to their health and personal well-being from the misinformed and ill-advised rhetoric surrounding essential oils and the complementary therapeutic modality of aromatherapy.
Sadly, Stacey’s experience is not isolated or exaggerated. We in the field of aromatherapy are, unfortunately, seeing and hearing personal accounts of minor to severe injuries and adverse reactions—from misuse and over-use of essential oils, stemming from uneducated guidance—happening far more frequently. Medical advice and usage protocols are being given by masses of people solely trained in sales and “business building” often representing themselves as professionals with extensive education and expertise in health and wellness modalities. But nothing could be farther from the truth. It’s now reached a critical point that can no longer be shoved under the rug or denied, though many may try.
Kayla steps up to the plate with her no-nonsense approach, skilled writing and expertise as a long-time qualified aromatherapist to address the many myths, lies, and dangerous practices that have become epidemic in nature. She takes her many years of education, research and experience—pulls on the reserves of the science and art that makes aromatherapy what it really is—and delivers a serious reality check we all can learn from and should heed with respect. Kayla introduces a balance and accountability in regards to these potent chemicals that’s both refreshing and eye-opening. Starkly contrasting to what is predominantly seen and referenced in the digital and hard copy world today, her wise words combine research-based evidence with anecdotal experience to bring us front and center without rose-colored glasses, grandiose promises, or claims that blind and redirect the reader from reality.
I encourage anyone who is interested in exploring or currently using essential oils for any reason to get this book and read it with objectivity and consideration for the authors’ real-life experiences and hard-earned knowledge. Let it be a word of caution and a truth-filled guide to doing better and being better in your personal journey into the world of aromatherapy. You’ll be glad you did. ~Ginger L.
