Although this book was edited well and flowed fine, I feel like I’ve read this information numerous times before, except Angela A. Wix put Unicorns in place of Angels, Spirit Guides, Totem Animals, etc…
Unicorns are hot right now so it was a good marketing idea either on her part or that of the editors. It drew me in to want to read the book, so they knew what they were doing in that regard. The historical aspects of the unicorn was interesting, but didn’t make up for the lack of original self-help ideas.
I can never understand when people have guided meditation in written form. If I’m going to be guided through a meditation practice, I want it read to me so I can relax and visualize what is going on. I can’t see it being very effective if you have to continual stop your practice to read what you are supposed to be thinking about next. If you are okay with reading a guided meditation then those parts of the book may really be enjoyable to you. For me, it would not be something I would use.
And one other part that really stuck out to me was the Unicorn Mist. As a Certified Aromatherapist, safety is always a factor when it comes to essential oils. Below is a very basic rundown, but there is more that goes into the safety than the few sentences I have here.
Citrus oils can be very harmful to cats. Their livers can not metabolize them and they are very sensitive to phenols. Tea Tree oil is very harmful to dogs.
Not only is the safety towards animals not talked about, but whenever you use an essential oil on skin, you need to have a carrier oil with it.
And nothing is talked about in regards to preserving the mist. Either making a new batch every week or using alcohol or some other preservative so it doesn’t grow mold. Who wants to put mold on their skin or in the air?!?
If you rarely read self-help books or really like unicorns you may want to read this one. But with the lack of originality and the incomplete information on the essential oils this is not a book I would recommend.
