The updated edition of The Encyclopedia Of Essential Oils by Julia Lawless is an outstanding reference that covers 182 essential oils. It is suitable for beginners and as a reference for more advanced aromatherapy students, practitioners and professionals. The highlights of this book include the following:

An Introduction to Aromatics

This section introduces the reader to aromatherapy, its history, and guidelines for properly use of the oils.

The Oils

This section is the heart of this book. Monographs (details) of 182 oils are provided within this section with one full page dedicated to each oil. As this book is rather tall, each page is larger than the average book. Photos for each oil include photos of the plant and its parts used for the oil. A photo of the oil in a clear glass vial is also included so the reader can view the color of each oil. Also included is Latin name, family, herbal/folk tradition, aromatherapy/home use, safety data, constituents, other uses, distribution, and other species information.
