The list author says: "I make sure an author is a Certified Aromatherapist before I trust any books covering essential oils, blends, therapeutic uses, etc. These authors are very well-known in the field and reputable."
"A concise overview of aromatherapy, with a focus on individual oils (what part of plant the oil is derived from, therapeutic properties, most valuable uses, etc.). The 57 essential oils profiled are the most common ones."
"This one includes detailed profiles on common essential oils, along with common health issues and ailments that each oil is known for treating. This author runs her family's essential oils business, and really knows her products well."
"LOVE this book! Great book for recipes for specific health concerns and basics in blending oils for the best effect. It includes additional holistic healing methods (music therapy, breath work, etc.) than just aromatherapy, but still a great aromatherapy reference."
"This is such a well-researched book that you will truly reference all the time. All the oils and ailments are lumped together in "encyclopedia" fashion and it is text-heavy -- you have to read through the entries to find what you need."
