I was looking at several aromatherapy books before actually buying one. I must have looked at dozens of books..Being a beginner, this was by far the most entertaining and educational book out there on aromatherapy! Many books are very informative, but not a particularly interesting read. In this case, the humour and easy going manner of the book makes you want to read on and on. The chapters are well organized, and there is even a symptom & oil directory. If you are just beginning, this is the book to start your aromatherapy collection!!!!

Although being well versed in herbal remedies I had not explored the world of aromatherapy healing so I picked up this book. It is stock full of information. It contains the basics, how when and why to use essential oils, oil decriptions, some oil mixtures, oils to avoid etc. I wish it did have pictures however. Also as a reference book it may take you a minute to find the information because there is so much of it, where as other books are more compact and straight to the point.

Thinking about learning more about essential oils and aromatherapy? This is the place to do a quick perusal to determine whether you want to know more. Kathi Kaville, Director of the American Herb Association, has prepared a book for the beginner or the merely curious.

Ever wonder about the ingredients in your favorite perfume? For years, I've worn Channel No.5 and come close to adoring the scent on me and others. What's not to like- it consists of essential oils from sandalwood, vanilla, rose, ylang-ylang, neroli and bergamot and other fine oils. Of course, having worn this perfume for so long, as did my mother, I also know the perfumers use a very special rose (and plenty of it) and that the way the perfume is mixed affects the scent. I also know that the version sold in many department stores in the States is an inferior grade. You have to buy the blend that has not been overly diluted with alcohol.

One of the aspects of this book I truly appreciate is the overview of all the different uses of essential oils. Essential oils can be used medicinally for sure or as health and beauty aids. You can also use them as household cleaning products. For example, you don't have to use moth balls to protect your woolens, you can use a blend of essential oils (including cedar oil) and they will smell better in the spring. Also, you can use oils in the dishwasher, the clothes dryer and other places around the house. They will impart a clean fresh smell that makes the visitor think you've been cleaning like mad.

First I wish to thank Kathi for approaching the subject using language that is practical, down to earth and hands on. I've re-read this book numerous times and always find another piece of information that has helped me to build upon a new blend and has prepared me for a more scientific study of essential oils. I would dearly love to hear her speak in person.

All Dummies books are great BUT I was especially pleased with Aromatherapy for Dummies as I am very new and wanted a clear picture of exactly how to use essential oils for my home and what they do. I would recommend this book to anyone just starting out like me who hasn't a clue where to begin.
The book gives good info on how oils are made, different diffusers and how they work, several recipes that are super easy for those starting out with just a few of the oils, and also different ideas on how to use them for health issues, in addition to all of that, there is much needed info on how to purchase and tell if an oil is real, along with ideas of where you can purchase not only the oils but all the items needed for your venture. Great book!

While some might be put off by the thought of having a book in their reference guides with "Dummies" in the title, do not let the title put you off or you will miss out on an excellent source of information!

The only thing I would change would be to have more recipes using the most common essential oils so you don't have to buy 50 different ones.
