Although the basic principles of aromatherapy have been used for thousands of years, René-Maurice Gattefossé is the father of the term aromatherapy. Originally written in French in 1937, this book is the English translation of this renowned work. It was originally called Aromathérapie: Les Huiles essentielles hormones végétales. This text is a fascinating look into the history and background of aromatherapy and is wonderful reading for the serious aromatherapy student. The writing style and content is more scientific in approach and may not be suitable to someone looking for a lighter writing style.
