Awesome book with lots of information and recipes,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Aromatherapy Bible: The Definitive Guide to Using Essential Oils (Paperback)
This book attempts to cover so many different issues that some are barely touched upon and mainly ignite your interest to look elsewhere for more information. For example it mentions essential oil evaporation rates and odor intensities which is rather useful to know when creating your own blends, but it only offers this information for 12 essential oils. So if you'd like to know more, you'll have to look elsewhere for such information.
On the other hand, there are tons of recipes for adults, for babies and for elderly people; for skin care, for alleviating different mental, emotional and physical health problems, etc. There are suggestions for different ways of applying essential oils - from inhaling, to adding drops in a bath water, using in in massage.
The book goes even beyond discussing merely the properties and applications of different essential oils and offers helpful tips and techniques for meditation, stress relief, how to perform different kinds of massage, etc.
At the end of the book is a Directory of Essential Oils, where the properties of about 40 - 50 essential oils are described.
