oils and is suitable for both the beginner and more advanced aromatherapy
student. The highlights of this book include the following:
Therapeutic Index - This
section identifies recommended oils for particular purposes
and is broken down by category such as Circulation, Respiratory
System, Skin Care, etc.
The Oils - This section is
the heart of this book. Monographs (details) of 165 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, constitudents,
other uses, distribution, and other species information.
