Robert Tisserand is THE single most respected authority for so many things pertaining to aromatherapy and essential oils but particularly when it is a question of safety. He has been studying, researching and writing about this subject for very many years. This book sits beside my desk - and I have many aromatherapy books that aren't in this revered spot - so I can easily reach over and check, double check everything whether I am making up a blend, writing a blog, commenting on a social media site or just curious - the answers are always (yes, always) there and easily found. He has given the world of aromatherapy what no one else could - legitimacy and safety. I for one will be forever grateful.
Aromatherapist in training... educator at heart.
This book reads like a textbook and someone new to essential oils and/or not familiar with chemistry would certainly find it overwhelming. I use it mainly for a reference. I check the index for an oil that I am using and then I go to the page that it's on to read about it and make sure that it's safe. There is a lot of very helpful information. If I don't understand what I am reading I research it to better educate myself on the subject.
There's an appendix, glossary, list for abreviations, list of resources, and a list of references to help it along as well in case I'm unsure what something is or means.
This large book is a little rough on the Kindle format. I'd highly recommend bookmarking important pages so you can easily get back to it. If you're finding it overwhelming, just use it a little at a time. As you gain more knowledge of essential oils and a better understand of how they work it will get easier. Just don't let it frustrate you. This isn't meant to be read in one sitting or memorized after one reading.
I definitely recommend this book for anyone who's using essential oils. It's very important to know safety and not just to know something is or isn't safe, but to know why.
I was able to purchase this book with my promotional credits and I am about to purchase a non digital version of it as well because I find myself referencing it a lot,
