Editorial Reviews

Review

The author's intentions to present information in an unbiased manner is invaluable to the field of Aromatherapy. This text will be useful to all students of Aromatherapy not just Estheticians or spa workers!

I think the proposed product is quite adequate for the training I will be doing. I can't think of any books that are as complete as what you are proposing. I think you are targeting the right area, anyone interested in self-healing or massage therapists who have not been introduced to essential oils.

I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of information packed into this text! And yes, it is a textbook--no glamourous photos of essential oils or products, just the real Art & Science of aromatherapy as they apply to the beauty and spa industries.

I loved this book and I pick it up again and again. The author makes difficult concepts very clear with his easy to follow style and discusses essential oils and beauty management from a truly holistic perspective. The book is extremely well researched. Apart from extensive discussion of essential oils, carrier oils, therapeutic formulations, blending and application methods are thoroughly discussed as well. A must read for anyone interested in the world of essential oils!

I used this when I first started studying Aromatherapy. Now I am working on my Master's Thesis and this book has been invaluable. Please be aware this is a college textbook and therefore the casual reader will find it a bit much.

I love this book and use it so often, it has become dog-eared and worn...so much so that I bought another copy!

This book has been very valuable to me in more deeply understanding the concept of beauty. The author's presentation of holistic beauty really resonates with me - beauty that comes from the inside and reflects the inner state of one's health and vitality outwardly. Reading this book helped me learn how essential oils tie in to holistic health and beauty in a vast variety of ways. The author writes in a clear, concise, and fun-to-read style with great explanations about how and why essential oils are so helpful to us, for the skin, body and mind. He also includes many essential oil recipes to try and experiment with, which has been so much fun to follow and make, and helpful to myself and my family and friends.

This book is also a great reference to those essential oil enthusiasts who want to delve deeper and understand essential oils from a chemical component perspective, which can be very helpful when one wants to create a compound synergistic blend of oils for a particular desired therapeutic effect or goal. I actually started to like chemistry again after reading this book!!! And, I appreciate the wisdom of plants sooo much more now, as well.

I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in learning about aromatherapy and holistic health, spirit, and beauty...AND how to use essential oils for yourself and others.

First of the half of the book was really good. The second half was more geared towards beauty product use of the essential oils. Glad to see that someone talks about essential oils and legal usage in the USA.

I have started my studies on Therapeutic Essential Oils. This is not taught in any school that I have found in the states. So, I am picking through books, and learning from local mentors. I purchased this book and was finally getting to read it. Until....my car was broken into and my books and personal travel kit of essential oils were stolen. =(
I am now purchasing this again as I feel it is worth having in my healing library.

This is not just about skin care. It gets into the chemistry of essential oils and how to blend and why certain ones go together. This book gets in the chemical compounds of many different oils, so you have a better idea of how to use them or substitute another oil with the same constituents or similar components. If you want to know more than just the "smells", this book is a highly valuable addition to your library.

A comprehensive text on all basic info regarding essential oil use. In depth enough to educate but simple enough to understand.
