Aromatherapy Blends & Remedies
Blends & Remedies
Author: Franzesca Watson
Aromatherapy Blends & Remedies is a 272-page book that supplies profiles (monographs) on 60 essential oils and over 800 recipes for the use of essential oils. Unlike The Complete Book of Essential Oils & Aromatherapy that provides details on its 600 recipes and background information on the conditions and uses for the recipes, Aromatherapy Blends & Remedies packs the 800 recipes into only about 70 pages. Additionally, it provides very limited safety information on essential oils. If you don't already have The Complete Book of Essential Oils & Aromatherapy, consider getting that one first.
