This review is based on a previous edition of Aromatherapy for Health Professional.

Aromatherapy for Health Professionals is a 390-page that includes detailed AT information, case studies and research. I feel like a kid in a candy store after receiving this book. Few other books exist that actually provide research and case studies.

It is important for me to note that I am not a health professional nor have I read this book in its entirety. I, however, doubt most will read it from front to cover as it acts as a very comprehensive guide on many subjects; you will most likely refer to it often, looking up the subjects of interest to you. If you are an intermediate/advanced student of aromatherapy, an aromatherapist or aromatherapy vendor, you will most likely consider this one of your more appreciated aromatherapy books.
