Shirley Price is an author to be trusted. While many books on the market seem to repeat claims without substantive proof, Price's texts offer footnoted references. This text is well researched and provides source material for deeper study.
Price explains the chemistry of aromatherapy clearly, exhorting the reader to learn why and how essential oils affect the body and mind. Chemistry, botany, and application are brought together is a beneficial, down to earth, deep text. With factual content and science on which to base decisions, the aromatherapy practitioner can make informed decisions.
As a teacher of aromatherapy (my students are allied health professionals and alternative practitioners) I recommend both this text and Price's AROMATHERAPY WORKBOOK.

As a Health Education Specialist it is my job to work with clients in finding ways to improve their health. It is also my job to provide the most acurate health information. I make a point to check and double check any informational source that I might use as reference in considering possible avenues.
I have found this book to be extremely helpful in making such decisions pertaining to aromatherapy. It is full of actual case studies, physicians reference notes, reasonable scientific methodology, and sound references. This is one of the only books that I know of that successfully convinced me of the possible use of aromatherapy with more traditional allopathic methods.
If you should choose to pursue aromatherapy as a means to improving your ailments, I do stress that you address your concerns and your plans with your physician to ensure not only the best possible outcome but, your safety as well.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had read several books on essential oils and aromatherapy. Some were filled with anti-Western medicine rhetoric, others were focused on cosmetics, while others contained good anecdotes with recipes interspersed. I use these, but was looking for something else, which I couldn't really articulate.
I haven't finished reading this, but it is exactly what I was looking for. It combines practical application with reasonable science while focusing on healing.
The book is written in the context of the UK medical system, which doesn't match the US system very well, but it isn't hard to generalize the concepts to a different venue.
In the back are several appendices listing the recommendations and summarizing the findings.
Definitely worth the time and money.

Format: Paperback
This book is written for anyone who is serious about therapeutic aromatherapy. This is an opportunity to study essentials at a chemical level, while developing an appreciation for the subtle power they have over the human body. This book covers the basics, as well as detailed information concerning aromatherapy and its uses. I highly recommend this book for those who need to know more!

Format: Paperback
This is a very welll written book but I feel it is not for someone who has just started exploring aromatheray. The summaries are very helpful. This is not a book you could read in one day for sure. It is full of interesting facts but at times one wants to just get into the healing sections quicker. I would suggeast this book to others but they would do better to get intro books on aromatheray if they are new to the field.
