Daily Aromatherapy is a 371-page text dedicated towards inner reflection, growth, healing, spirituality and self awareness through the esoteric use of essential oils. The book is well organized, and is broken down ultimately into a day-to-day format of enriching exercises. Readers are offered multiple ideas on how to best use the book based on their particular needs, time availability and the essential oils on hand. The content of Daily Aromatherapy is organized by the four seasons of the year, with each season embracing elements at where we are all at in our present life journey. From there, each season is broken down into individual months and then into the 52 weeks of the year.

52 essential oils are profiled, one per week. Seven different daily exercises are offered for each of the essential oils, broken down by specific day of the year. I have not had the opportunity to read Daily Aromatherapy from front to back, but the exercises for each oil all seem to follow the same well organized pattern:

  • Day 1: Aromatic Affirmation
  • Day 2: Aromatic Emotional Self Discovery
  • Day 3: Aromatic Exercise Specific to the Oil Itself
  • Day 4: Aromatic Blessing
  • Day 5: Aromatic Activity
  • Day 6: Aromatic Visualization
  • Day 7: Aromatic Prayer

Daily Aromatherapy is a beautiful book that enlightens readers to the possible emotional and spiritual benefits of essential oils. These are the realms of essential oil usage that are not strongly supported by science, but nonetheless are a major application of essential oils for many. Unlike some books that merely list the emotional or spiritual/meditative benefits of each essential oil, Daily Aromatherapy offers the reader specific exercises for each essential oil over the course of the week. Guided by the authors, these exercises help the reader to experience and learn about the oil in a variety of ways.

I appreciate that the authors provide a better-than-most "How to Use This Book" section that gives readers alternative ways in which to read/study/implement the information presented within its covers.

This book does not have an index. Instead, it offers several indexes that organize essential oils and their uses. You will not find "depression" or many negative emotional states listed. Instead, you will find that the emphasis is upon building positive states such as Hope, inspiration, Joy, Optimism, Rebirth, Harmonious Relationships, Releasing Fear, and more (from Appendix II: Alternate and Additional Best Essential Oils." Because owning the 52 essential oils featured in this book can be cost prohibitive for most individuals, and because the authors respect that not all individuals have a positive reaction to some essential oils, this same appendix is helpful for substituting essential oils throughout the book.
