Description from the Back Cover

Synergistic blending is at the very core of aromatherapy practice. This book explores the concept of synergy, providing evidence for its existence and significance, and gives practical guidance on how to build aromatherapeutic blends effectively and safely.

The author covers new and exciting developments in research into the use of essential oils, explores the merits and limitations of holistic, psychsensory and moleculary approaches to blending, and suggests effective ways of choosing the most suitable approach for individual clients. Evidence-based profiles of essential oils and absolutes are included and comprehensive tables summarising their actions enable easy identification of pential contenders for synergistic blends.
