Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

When essential oils (concentrated fragment components of plants and herbs) are put in a lamp, inhaled, applied to the skin, placed in bathwater, or even taken orally, a person can feel relaxed, energized, or uplifted. They can also help with stomach problems, asthma, varicose veins, and other ailments. In this beautifully illustrated book, translated from the German, the author, a holistic practitioner, describes the history and physiological basis of aromatherapy, tells how to extract and store the oils, and gives detailed information on 27 of the most important essential oils, including their dosages and beneficial effects. There is also a section on essential oils for beauty, for children, and for men. One vital piece of information is missing: the book doesn't tell where you can purchase these oils. Since there aren't many books in print in the United States on this subject, libraries with New Age and holistic medicine sections may want to consider this one.

Informative! This book is chocked full of information on essential oils. Written and organized in easy to follow format. The blending recipes are a real treat for any beginner. Although this is a paper back (large edition)the graphics and color are eyecatching. THIS BOOK IS A WELCOME ADDITION TO MY REFERENCE LIBRARY ON AROMATHERAPY.

Format: Paperback
The descriptions of the oils, their uses and compatiblities are very good. I would have liked to have a little more information on some of the oils and perhaps some more recipes for men's fragrences but all in all this a book I use alot. Aromatherapy is not just about smell but also about taste and good health, meditation aids and more.

Format: Paperback
Many years ago I received this book as a present from my then near 90 years old mother, and it resulted my first "serious" book an Aromatherapy. Now, after nearly ten years, and after connecting with Jean Valnet, the Tisserands, with Kurt Schnaubelt, Shirley Price, Patricia Davis, Valerie Wormwood, etc etc., it remains still one of my favorites on this thematica.
Susanne Fischer offers a, in my opinion, unique combination between innocence and determination, spirit for curiosity and deep knowledge, precise and palpable information and connecting poetry, and all this together makes this book for me so valuable, no matter if I am looking just for precise information on this or that oil, or if I am "only" in need to read some enhancing words.

I am so pleased with this book! It's so well put together and so easy to read. The print is a nice size and the illustrations are lovely and colorful. The information is well organized. It has both a detailed table of contents and an index in the back. I'm so glad I got this book! I'm going to really enjoy reading this one!

I love that this book looks kind of ancient... the art is lovely but not 'old'. It is clear with its information and can be handy for lending to someone who wants to know more about essential oils and aromatherapy without all the over-whelming science.
