I do like that the oils it does include have a list of oils they blend well with. However these lists are still missing all the basic oils they didn't include in other parts. They are also very basic and only tell you a list of single oils they blend with but you will have to figure things out on your own if you want to blend more then two oils together at a time.
In conclusion I would say this is not a good book for a beginner as it is missing a lot of key information that many beginners will be looking for. It also isn't a great book for someone more advanced as they will already probably already know most of what's in here. The "recipes" may be useful if they are the kinds of things you're interested in doing with your oils. I don't think the book is worth it just for those though as you could probably find that information in a book that covers more of the basics.
Oh the cover is really soft and nice to touch though. It's weird but kind of cool.
Chapter 1 - Covers the history, benefits and production of essential oils. Gives an overview of aromatherapy.
Chapter 2 - Getting started with aroma therapy. Choosing oils and equipment, storage methods for long lasting oils, explains carrier oils and essential oil safety.
Chapter 3 - Application methods and uses: aromatic and topical. Discusses diffusers and inhalation and direct application via compresses and massage.
Chapter 4 - Ailments - Gives an extensive list of common ailments in alphabetical order and which oils and methods best treat them.
Chapter 5 - An encyclopedic list of 75 essential oils, their latin and common names, which other oils they blend well with and what their benefits and uses are. This section alone is worth the price of the book.
There is a handy ailment quick reference guide at the end and a useful chapter on different brands. This doesn't compare the brands, but it will tell you which are some reputable brands and gives an overview of comments by purchasers.
As a beginner to essential oils, I found this book thorough and extremely useful. It's a tremendous value for 99 cents!
