Let trusted essential oil expert and educator Andrea Butje of Aromahead Institute guide you on an unforgettable journey into the Heart of Aromatherapy.
Within its 288 pages, Andrea beautifully and clearly explains the science, art and spirit of aromatherapy. Her writing style is charming, fun and easy-to-read.
Andrea sprinkles lovely, insightful stories throughout the book of her experiences meeting with and working with distillers and of her wonderful experiences in using essential oils.
The Heart of Aromatherapy includes 40 wonderfully intriguing and detailed essential oil profiles. Most are 2-3 pages in depth.
Also included is a categorized selection of over 100 practical (but not boring!) and easy-to-make recipes for skin care, rest and relaxation, respiration, digestion, pain relief, meditation and contemplation and natural cleaning. I love how she provides a kid-safe alternative for most of the recipes.
