This is an excellent book that is informed with an outlook that can only come from a working professional. This isn't a book solely based on cold theory.

It even appears to include some sound scientific principles - down to touching on the question of how the size of the dropper bore will affect what you measure out. They even cover some basic chemistry though I'm glad there was only one chapter on that. The information includes dilution charts, blending tips and a comprehensive section on carrier oils as well as the in-depth profiles of a number of essential oils. Appropriate safety precautions are included. Each chapter has a worksheet at the end to allow you to test your own understanding of the preceding information.

As the first review indicated: as well as for bodyworker therapists, this would be a good book for those who are simply interested in essential oils.

I was very impressed with the amount of information this book contained and it's not just for bodyworkers. It not only provides as much information as someone new to essential oils would want, but those with a greater need for information can spend more time in some of the sections. I thought the flashcards at the back of the book were a nice touch for those who really need to know which oils they are buying and working with.

I attended an aromatherapy class and the instructor suggested that I buy this book because I am a massage therapist and I wanted to incorporate aromatherapy into my practice.

I am so glad I got it! And it will be useful for so much more than blending massage oils!

This book covers a wide array of topics and includes things like case stories, recipes, how-to's, lots of charts and tables, and even a set of flash cards to help you learn your essential oils!

This book includes:
-Information on Essential Oils in general; What they are, how they are made and how they work.
-The Chemistry of Essential Oils and what properties do what in or on your body.
-Blending of Essential Oils; Client intake, choosing oils, blending, and proper diluting.
-Aromatherapy for the Skin; The How and the What.
-Olfaction; The How and the What of aromatherapy scents.
-Application and Integration; Applications on the skin, during massage sessions, etc. Includes recipes for massage oils, lotions, creams, gels, salves, and what oils to use for common injuries/ailments that bodyworkers would come across.
-Hydrotherapy and Salt applications with Aromatherapy
-Massage and Aromatherapy; A whole chapter on how to incorporate the two including more common injuries/ailments that bodyworkers would come across.
-Aromatherapy as a Business
-Essential Oil Data Sheets; Everything you need to know about dozens of essential oils.

It is a wonderful resource for aromatherapists, massage therapists, chiropractors, herbalists, naturopathic doctors, and anyone who wants a more natural approach to healing.

Loaded with an immense amount of information based on years of research. Blending tips based on blending factors. Great and valuable information based on these ladies' years of practice and enthusiasm. Highly recommended!

The contents in this book are have the layout of a classroom textbook, complete with quizzes and chapter summaries. The layout is nice, but the most important aspect is the content - if you're a beginner aromatherapist looking to pursue further research into the field, this textbook is an excellent bridge to build between you and key knowledge of essential oils.
