At long last, The Complete Guide to Aromatherapy Edition 3 Volume III - Psyche & Subtle has been published with great anticipation by many within the global aromatherapy community. I am amongst those that counted the days until it was published.

Salvatore Battaglia is a highly respected Australian aromatherapist, educator and essential oil expert. The first edition of Salvatore Battaglia's Complete Guide to Aromatherapy was published in 1995, and the second edition was published in 2003. Both of those editions were published as single volume books.

The third edition of Salvatore Battaglia's The Complete Guide to Aromatherapy has been significantly updated and expanded and is now being published as three separate volumes. This volume, Volume III - Psyche & Subtle, is 416 pages, and the first volume is 638 pages. Salvatore Battaglia published the volumes out of sequence and is still working on Volume II Science & Therapeutics at the time that Volume III was published.

Given Salvatore Battaglia's impressive background and passion for essential oils, Sal is uniquely qualified to lead our journey into more deeply understanding the subtle, spirtual benefits and applications for essential oils.

From the Back Cover of The Complete Guide to Aromatherapy Third Edition Volume 3 - Psyche and Subtle:

The Complete Guide to Aromatherapy is internationally acclaimed as the most authoritative book on aromatherapy. The third edition is comprised of three volumes.

Volume 1 - Foundations & Materia Medica provide us with a framework for the practice of aromatherapy and includes comprehensive monographs of 110 essential oils.

Volume II - Science & Therapeutics is coming soon.

Volume III - Psyche & Subtle provides us with a roadmap for integrating the spiritual dimensions of aromatherapy within health care. We explore the role of essential oils as entheogens and examine how shamanic practices can provide us with the foundations to move towards a more holistic model of health, spirituality and healing. Volume III outlines six pricinpal factors that contribute to the spiritual dimension of scent - biophilia, awe, sacred space, ritual, myth and neurobiology. Understanding these factors provides us with a better understanding of the therapeutic role of essential oils.

Other topics covered in Volume III include:

  • The role of spirituality within health care
  • Detailed examination of current status of biofield therapies
  • Mindfulness
  • Aromatherapy, TCM, system biology and precision medicine
  • The olfactory system
  • The Neuropsychopharmacology of essential oils
  • Aromatherapy and mental health
  • Essential oil subtle profiles

The Complete Guide to Aromatherapy - Volume III is written for everyone who wishes to understand the subtle nature of essential oils and the influence they have on our psyche.
