Aromatherapy Workbook by Marcel Lavabre
Author: Marcel Lavabre
Publisher: Healing Arts Press
Copyright: 1997 (second edition)
ISBN: 0892816449 / 978-0892816446
The Aromatherapy Workbook is a 182-page book suitable for a beginner, but is much more in-depth than a recipe-style book. If you're getting beyond just following recipes or if you wish to learn more about aromatherapy, this book will be a helpful addition to your library. I especially appreciate Levabre's section on essential oil chemistry. Most books that provide introductory aromatherapy information don't include the informative and helpful information on EO chemistry.
