Aromatherapy and Women's Mental Health by Pam Conrad provides a clear, evidenced-based foundation for choosing essential oils and selecting best methods of use for supporting mental health.

The Table of Contents (scroll down to view) for Aromatherapy and Women's Mental Health gives a good general idea of the topics that are presented within the book.

As the back cover mentions, "Pam Conrad is a registered nurse with a background in mental health and psychiatric nursing, and a certified clinical aromatherapy practitioner, educator and researcher with 22 years' experience developing hospital programs in evidence-based women's health aromatherapy."

The numerous essential oil charts that appear in the Life Stages and Emotional Challenges chapter serve as a helpful reference that can be used to quickly look up the essential oils and usage methods for easing mental concerns that are associated with various challenges that women go through during the seasons of their life.

The charts are broken down into the following primary topics:

  • PMS
  • Prenatal
  • Postpartum
  • Perimenopause - Menopause
  • Post-menopause
  • Grief and Loss
  • Anger and Rage
  • Anxiety and/or Depression

Each of the charts mentioned above is formatted like the below example:

Aromatherapy and Women's Mental Health by Pam Conrad is an important resource for all those wishing to utilize essential oils safely and effectively for women' mental well-being.

Numerous citations appear throughout the book and ten pages of references are provided at the conclusion of the book.

Unfortunately, however, there is no Index at the end of Aromatherapy and Women's Mental Health by Pam Conrad, and the Table of Contents (scroll down to view) does not drill into the subtopics for each chapter. This does make it a bit trickier to go back and locate key points presented in the book. Use of the Kindle version can help in performing content searches.
