Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

A beautiful little book and great photos of the herbs by that great herb photographer, Stephen Foster. As a former massage therapist, I would recommend this to all of my clients.

I just received this book. I have been a "Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil Distributor" for years. I ordered this book because what I liked about it is that not only does it tell you about each oil, it tells you how to use it, where to use it, and the biggie... it tells you which other oils the oil you are reading about can be mixed with. I hate to say it, but there are not a lot of books out there on essential oils that make it so easy for the beginner to get the total picture in one book. This book has it all. I ordered this book so that I can hand it out to customers who tell me that they know little about essential oils. This is a cute little book that will appeal to anyone interested in getting into essential oils. It is a very easy read and very informative. Very pleased with this purchase.

Format: Paperback
In my short lifetime I've read quite a few books on aromatherapy and this is one of my favorites. Not only does it teach you about the main essential oils used for health but it also gives interesting facts I haven't found in other books. In this book you will find information on 45 essential oils.

Usually when you buy an essential oil it doesn't come with instructions. That is where this book comes in handy. It not only tells you what illnesses the essential oils cure but explains exactly how many drops of the oil to use and how to use it. I found this all very helpful. After the introduction there are about two pages for each essential oil. You will find therapeutic uses, how to apply the essential oil, what the oil mixes well with and how the oil was extracted from the plant. There is also some safety information so if you are pregnant you will want to pay special attention to those warnings.

I liked the little tips throughout like if you have a sauna it is helpful to know that pine essential oil is more appropriate than rose oil. Some oils are not good in confined spaces.

Also I did use some information in this book to banish a bout of depression. I will tell you exactly what I did. I put essential oils in a liquid soap and then used it in the shower. That was comforting but then I also put sweet orange, rose and neroli in a body cream. I then put sweet orange and neroli on my wrists and inhaled deeply. I then put more oil in my hair before blow drying it. This ensured that I was completely surrounded by scent. It worked like magic. I now feel completely relaxed and happy again. I totally believe in the power of essential oils and after you learn how to use them I bet you will too.

Format: Paperback
I recently finished reading Aromatherapy For Everyone by P. J. Pierson & Mary Shipley. This book is a great introduction to the wonderful world of aromatherapy and it makes a wonderful book for someone wanting to learn more about the benefits of aromatherapy.

Here's more of what I loved about this book:

1) Provides a brief introduction/history of aromatherapy and how aromatics and essential oils work.

2) How to use, apply, and store essential oils.

3) Well organized table of contents, index, and color photographs of the plants that make the essential oils.

4) Essential Oils are listed in alphabetical order with a short paragraph about each essential oil along with its therapeutic uses, its applications, which essential oils it blends well with, extraction method of each oil, which parts of the plant are used to make the essential oil, safety precautions, and fun facts!

5) Author biographies are included at the end of the book.

6) A bibliography for further reading is also included as well.

This is the first book I've read about aromatherapy. Although, I can't attest to how factual the information is in Aromatherapy For Everyone, it does appear like the authors do know their topic quite well.

I like how well organized Aromatherapy For Everyone is. It is well written, easy to understand, short, to the point and will make a great reference book to keep in my permanent collection.

Perfect size for carrying around and nicely written. Perfect for beginners because its not so thick with information which would cause information overload.
*UPDATED REVIEW: When I first got this book, I loved it for its size and information. As I began to learn more about essential oils, I then realized that this book is somewhat incomplete in the sense that it lacks the botanical name for each oil and is somewhat vague in safety information. As much as I loved this book when I first got it, it isn't the best book on EOs out there. I would recommend The Encyclopaedia of Essential Oils by J. Lawless, Essential Oil Safety by R. Tisserand and The Complete Aromatherapy and Essential Oils Handbook for Everyday Wellness by N. Purchon and L. Cantele. If I had to choose one of the three, I'd start with Tisserand's book on EO safety. It's pricey but when it comes to EOs, safety and education should come first.

This book will get you started quickly with over 45 common essential oils, instructions on how best to use each(inhalation,massage,bath, etc), what to use them for, what they blend well with, and great safety precautions. Great little index of ailments in the back, too. By no means a bible or encyclopedia, but its great for we everyday folk.
