From Library Journal
There are plenty of good books on herbs, and some of them devote a chapter to essential oils, but there's nothing comparable to Worwood's work. Her premise is different from other herbalists--she believes that the most effective way to use herbs medicinally is by external application or inhalation. Both methods allow the essential oil to enter the bloodstream without passing through the digestive tract. Her grasp of basic physiology is somewhat confused, but there's nothing dangerous in her suggestions. (Worwood runs an aromatherapy clinic in England and conducts research on aromatherapy.) Her book prescribes oils for everything from basic first aid and treating common ailments to natural cosmetics and body care, fragrance for the home and office, and cooking with essential oils. A good addition to alternative medicine collections.See also Susanne Fischer-Rizzi's Complete Aromatherapy Handbook , LJ 7/91.--Ed.

I wish her book went a bit deeper..... There is very little technical subject matter about the essential oils, extraction methods, carrier oils and how to combine them etc. If you are like me and invested a fair amount of $$ into purchasing high quality organic essential oils, carrier oils etc, you may feel as if you don't want to even try most of her recipes.
That being said, there are a few quick reference first-aid recipes and remedies that are decent which is why I gave this review 3 stars. I am sorry, but I would not recommend this book.
