5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By David Barthes on September 1, 2003
Format: Paperback
The other reviewer was unfair to this book when he criticized it for a lack of references. The introduction clearly says, "In the back of this book, in case you are interested in looking further into a study we cite, you will find references listed under chapter headings." The last two-dozen pages of the book are references.
Unlike every other book that touches on aromatherapy or essential oils, this one was written by a medical doctor. It is refreshing to read an aromatherapy book written with a degree of scientific skepticism. Also, I greatly enjoyed the chapters about Madagascar, its history, and its botany.
Finally, this book doesn't engage in New Age jargon. Now that is truly refreshing!

Format: Paperback
This book is a mixed bag. The style is very readable. The organization is well done - an introduction to Madagascar and its people, smoothly segueing into a materia medica of herbs.
However, the author's passion for Madagascar and its essential oils left me a bit uneasy - how much of the information about the essentials oils is hype and how much of it is fact? Because the author didn't document the sources of information, I couldn't resolve my concern that the book is an extended sales brochure.
The author did include some imprecise safety information (which is better than nothing). However, those who use oils professionally do not have the information they need to safely use the oils with clients.
I consigned this book to the sack for the used book store. It is too bad, because I do like the author's writing style and the book has some potential for providing detailed information about these oils. I simply don't trust the information present and find the lack of safety information and references disturbing.
