This book is an outstanding reference on 160 essential oils and is suitable for both the beginner and more advanced aromatherapy student. The highlights of this book include the following:

An Introduction to Aromatics

This section introduces the reader to aromatherapy, its history, and guidelines for properly use of the oils.

Therapeutic Index

This section identifies recommended oils for particular purposes and is broken down by category such as Circulation, Respiratory System, Skin Care, etc.

The Oils

This section is the heart of this book. Monographs (details) of 165 oils are provided within this section with one full page dedicated to each oil. As this book is rather tall, each page is larger than the average book. Photos for each oil include photos of the plant and its parts used for the oil. A photo of the oil in a clear glass vial is also included so the reader can view the color of each oil. Also included is Latin name, family, herbal/folk tradition, aromatherapy/home use, safety data, constituents, other uses, distribution, and other species information.
