Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have a large and endlessly growing library on books covering various subjects of health, healing, massage and bodywork, Aromatherapy, herbal medicine, etc. It's about time someone gave us a more comprehensive look at the benefits and values of a broad range of 'carrier' oils that can be used for massage, Aromatherapy and general skincare purposes. I was expecting a review on about 20 different oils or so but Kusmirek gives us info on 50 different oils! Working in the spa industry I have massaged with a large variety of oils that several of my fellow practitioners have not had the chance to use, but there were many in the book that even I have not heard of. This broad range covers many exotic oils (Passion Fruit, Monoi and Kiwifruit Seed Oil) along with some of the more commonly known and used (Apricot Kernal, Almond, Grape Seed, etc.) and including those that continue to increase in popularity (Argan, Jojoba). It is not an exhaustive or comprehensive list so it is possible that if you have a favorite unique oil it may not be addressed. I was a little dissapointed not to see Marula Nut and Pomegranate Oil... Note also that the book only addresses vegetable/plant sourced oils so you will not find any animal products such as emu oil. Which is fine and avoids any controversy with using animal products.

Overall, this book has something beneficial for every skincare or bodyworking professional, and even for the enthusiastic holisitic nutritionist. Kusmirek also spends some time commenting on issues such as overprocessing, nut allergies, and the basic chemistry of lipids/fats, although never getting carried away or too complicated for the lay person to understand.

If you are looking for scientific explanations why specific carrier oils work, this is the book for you! I love it because it goes much further in detail about each oil and has the chemical makeup. As an aromatherapist and body care formulator, I find this book a MUST.
