Dr. Jane Buckle, aromatherapy educator and author of Clinical Aromatherapy, has a lengthy and impressive educational and professional background that includes her work as a registered nurse in critical care. She has earned a number of degrees including a PhD in Health Management and a MA in Aromatherapy. Dr. Buckle's educational background also includes postgraduate nurses training and specialty certification in areas of aromatherapy and herbology and massage.

Updated with more studies, tables and references, the third edition of Clinical Aromatherapy: Essential Oils in Healthcare is a hefty 412-page book that focuses on the use of essential oils in a healthcare setting. Buckle gives a good overview for each topic and as appropriate, she describes the traditional drugs and procedures that are commonly used for treatment and follows with essential oil/aromatherapy alternatives and applicable research and case studies. Though written with a focus on medical/clinical practitioners, Buckle's writing style makes the information and studies that she presents easy to follow and absorb even to those that are not as accustomed to reading medical or scientific publications.

This third edition is fully updated and is destined to be a valuable addition to the aromatherapy libraries of practitioners, educators, students and those seeking a more expansive knowledge about administering essential oils for therapeutic use. This book should also be indispensable to aromatherapy vendors and artisans that desire to enhance their knowledge.
