"Schnaubelt brings singular authority to this explanation of the reasons why essential oils act on different systems of the body. This is aromatherapy's next generation, based in scientific analysis and structured to produce predictable results. Essential for the serious student." (NAPRA ReView Vol. 9, No.5)
"Schnaubelt presents sound research to demonstrate how essential oils interact with the different systems of the body." (Making Scents, Winter 1998-99)

This book is unique in its approach to aromatherapy, and is definitely worth getting even if you own his other books.
It shows the properties of many essential oils along the axes of yin and yang and polar and non-polar, which illuminates their qualities in amazing ways. The additional information about each oil is also very valuable.
p.s. Interesting story: I've just started studying aromatherapy (although I've been fascinated with scents since high school and have done graduate school work in chemistry). I asked a friend who has a very large library of aromatherapy books to lend them to me to see if any met my needs. This book was the best in his entire pile, and the only one I decided to purchase.
The book goes over some basic chemistry of oils and you can learn the chemotypes and sub groups. The author does speak to the real and potential dangers of using essential oils, there is safety info included. Information is given on adulteration of essential oils and how to choose what oils to use.
The book contains info on many essential oils and their uses as well as what blends create a synergy when mixing. There are guidelines on how to use the oils and protocols to follow for specific uses such as for fevers, flu, fatigue.
After purchasing this book I did go on to purchase all of Dr. Schnaubelt's books and I am impressed with all of them. They are very useful to me, and if you are considering becoming certified in Aromatherapy his books are a must!
