Dr. Jane Buckle, aromatherapy educator and author of Clinical Aromatherapy, has a lengthy and impressive educational and professional background that includes her work as a registered nurse in critical care. She has earned a number of degrees including a PhD in Health Management and a MA in Aromatherapy. Dr. Buckle's educational background also includes postgraduate nurses training and specialty certification in areas of aromatherapy and herbology and massage.

Updated with more studies, tables and references, the third edition of Clinical Aromatherapy: Essential Oils in Healthcare is a hefty 412-page book that focuses on the use of essential oils in a healthcare setting. Buckle gives a good overview for each topic and as appropriate, she describes the traditional drugs and procedures that are commonly used for treatment and follows with essential oil/aromatherapy alternatives and applicable research and case studies. Though written with a focus on medical/clinical practitioners, Buckle's writing style makes the information and studies that she presents easy to follow and absorb even to those that are not as accustomed to reading medical or scientific publications.

This third edition is fully updated and is destined to be a valuable addition to the aromatherapy libraries of practitioners, educators, students and those seeking a more expansive knowledge about administering essential oils for therapeutic use. This book should also be indispensable to aromatherapy vendors and artisans that desire to enhance their knowledge.

Description From Back Cover:

Improve Patient Care With Aromatherapy!

Written by a PhD, nurse with post-doctoral training in research and peer reviewed by experts in the field, this clinical text highlights how aromatherapy can enhance care and the role of the healthcare professional. It examines key facts and issues in aromatherapy practice, and applies these within a variety of contexts and conditions, and takes a carefully holistic approach in treating the patient. In-depth chapters discuss aromatherapy for insomnia, infection (including resistant infections), nausea and vomiting, and pain. This edition has been thoroughly updated, with new tables in every chapter, more than double the references, and several new chapters including Aromatherapy in Integrative Healthcare, Mental Health, and the 'M' Technique.
