Essential Oils in Colour begins by describing each chemical family/functional group and its generally attributed properties. Each functional group is assigned a color that remains consist throughout the book.

At the core of Essential Oils in Colour is the ninety essential oil profiles that it presents (see list in table of contents, shown below). Each profile is known as a Caddy Profile, named after the author, and includes a visual and colorful pie chart that accompanies a list of the functional groups present for the oil. For each functional group, she lists the percentage present in the oil.

Rosemary Caddy explains that she studied hundreds of GC/MS reports and utilized the data to establish the information presented in her profiles.

For each profile, Caddy also includes a brief list that contains some of the constituents present in the oil accompanied by the color that identifies the functional group the constituent belongs to. Each profile also includes a list of the general properties and uses for each oil.

Essential Oils in Colour is especially helpful for visual learners and for those looking for a quick way to more clearly determine the functional groups prevalent in a particular oil.
