Important Information

Ingredients
In this unique synthesis of Eastern and Western healing approaches, Gabriel Mojay combines the practice of aromatherapy with the wisdom of traditional Chinese medicine. Majoy explains the esoteric and energetic healing properties of 40 essential oils and shows how they can be used to manipulate qi, the body's vital energy, to stimuate healing from negative emotional and mental states. Some forms of nervous tension, for example, are caused by stagnant qi energy, which can be released with essential oils.

I love this book. I am a Registered Aromatherapist who prepares blends for physical, mental, and emotional well being. The author writes with such detail that the oils become alive with their own personalities. The beginning is a brief explanation of Aromatherapy, Oriental medicine and Astrology. This is followed by a wonderful Materia Medica with explanations of 37 oils. Each oil is described in two pages which include a brief botanical description, ancient uses, oriental uses of a physical, emotional and spiritual nature, and an astrological description. He gives suggestions for oils along with detailed explanations for nervous tension, overthinking and worry, anxiety and apprehension, poor concentration and memory, lack of confidence and self-esteem, anger and frustration, disempowerment and indecision, depression and negativity, and problems in relating. I refer to this book often.

Format: Paperback
Having read Gabriel's articles on how to utilize aromatherapy in concert with the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, I was thrilled to find he had published this gem of a book. Although its approach works best for those who have studied acupuncture or Chinese herbology, it is also for those with a little familiarity with shiatsu or 5 element theory. He does a good job of explaining 5 element theory for those completely unfamiliar with Chinese medicine, too. The descriptions of essential oils and how they are to be used is most useful for psychoemotional difficulties, but sufficient info on physical uses is included. I highly recommend this book to people with an interest in both aromatherapy and Chinese medicine, though any aromatherapy practitioner will glean new and useful information.

Format: Paperback
Gabriel Mojay's magnificent book is divided into 3 parts. The first reviews aromatheraphy basics and then succinctly connects this therapy with Yin/Yang of traditional chinese medicine, the 5-element theory and astrology. The second part reviews 40 individual essential oils with emphasis on the their energies and psychotherapy properties. The third part concentrates on the individual oils and blends and includes accupressure points to treat different unbalanced mental states such as "anger and frustration", "poor concentration and memory" and an excellent and very detailed entry on depression including restoring balance by the 5-element theory. The book is concise, superbly layed-out with many pictures, illustrations and charts. I find myself consulting it with great frequency. It should be in the library of every holistic aromatologist.

In my opinion, this is the finest exploration of the emotional uses of essential oils in print today, and I'm delighted it has been reissued. Gabriel's overview of TCM and how it applies to aromatherapy is thought provoking; but it is in his descriptions of the emotions and of the oils that his work truly shines.
This book is a must have for anyone interested in healing on levels beyond the purely physical.

Format: Paperback
Mr. Mojay does a wonderful job making aromatherapy applicable to Traditional Chinese Medicine. While most people understand that aromatherapy can influence the emotions, most books I have encountered are fairly general about how they affect emotions. Lavender, for example, is "calming"--but so is sandalwood, geranium, chamomile, and any number of other oils. Using the theories of Traditional Chinese Medicine (the same theories that are the basis of acupuncture), you can target an essence more specifically for your body. That he does all this in an easy to read book is so much the better!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of those rare books that surpassed my expectations. This is not your typical aromatherapy book and this book contains practically no recipes (it has just a few). What you'll find in this book is about 40 of the most-popular aromatherapy essential oils brought to life. The author does this successfully by looking at the essential oils from the perspective of the Chinese five-elements, and by juxtaposing the essential oils with archetypes from mythology, religion and astrology, helping you to experience the "personality" of each essential oil.

The author goes over some common psychological and emotional issues that people experience and suggests which essential oils may be most suitable. The book also contains a couple of illustrated pages related to applying massage and accupressure.

25 of 25 people found the following review helpful By C. Steigerwalt on March 2, 2006
Format: Paperback
This book was well-written, and gives a nice overview of the Chinese view of the elements and yin and yang. It uses this information as a basis of how to achieve balance and determine which oils will have the best effect. The book covers a wide range of commonly available essential oils in good detail, including the elements that rule them and both physical and psychological applications. The book's biggest shortcoming was it's index. I feel that it should have been more in-depth and have included more of the physical conditions that are listed in each oil's description so that it would be easier to find which oils treat which disorders.

I first read this book when it was recommended to me by a Massage Intructor,in Australia, who was an inspiration in herself. It is simple and informative , while insightfull, for both the beginner in Aromatherapy as well as the practitioner. I would recommend it to anyone who is open to wholistic healing, and to those who just aren't sure. Great to have in the house as a reference.
Mojay has simply explained the links between healing the spirit and the body using aromatherapy.
