A Holistic Guide to Understanding and Using Aromatherapy
Authored by the highly respected aromatherapist, educator and essential oil expert Salvatore Battaglia, Aromatree explores the beneficial relationships that exist between individual essential oils and the different parts of a plant that they are derived from.
Well organized, indexed and referenced, I personally love Salvatore Battaglia's profound insights and his clear writing style.
In addition to the remarkable insights offered by Aromatree, the book is a delight to read. The full color printing, illustrations, photography and layout dramatically enhance the pleasure in reading and exploring all that Aromatree has to offer.
From the Back Cover of Aromatree by Salvatore Battaglia:
Aromatherapy is one of the most popular forms of natural therapies available to us. What makes essential oils so exciting is that they are the only plant-based remedies' that work on all levels of our wellbeing - our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing.
As an aromatherapy educator, I often notice how frustrated people become when they have to learn the individual properties and actions of essential oils. The aromatree identifies the relationships that exist between the individual essential oils and the different parts of a plant such as leaves, roots, resin, wood, fruits, seed or flowers.
In Aromatree, we examine the relationship and pattern between the botany of the plant, traditional folklore, symbolism, mythology of plants, aroma, chemistry, pharmacology, essential oil safety, our psyche, our personality, the chakras, the energetics according to traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda, and blending tips.
Aromatree embraces all aspects of aromatherapy. Whether you are a beginner or a professional aromatherapist, you will gain an incredible insight into using essential oils.
