I have not actually read the book yet, but glancing through tells me I will use it a lot. I love the tables. Table 1, for instance, goes from page 5 to page 31 and it lists all kinds of ailments/issues that might affect a person and then tells which oils will help with those issues. Table 2 does the opposite. It lists a wide variety of oils and then tells what those particular oils are good for. There are a lot of recipes and detailed descriptions of a number of oils.
I bought a used book. It came in GREAT shape! Makes it an affordable way to get a nice library going.
Jeanne Rose, affectionatley known as the Grand Dame of aromatherapy to those in the field, has compiled over the years a wealth of practical and researched information about aromatherapy. With her charming humor she weaves the history of aromatherapy. In this book you will find almost anything you would want to know about aromatherapy including recipes, her own and others, from skin care to pet care. She even covers the unusual aspects of aromatherapy such as the musical and chakra qualities of essential oils. An excellent book for beginners or beyond. It is a wonderful book for looking up particular essential oils, finding their properties, cautions etc. for both the beginner and advanced aromatherapy student. The aromatherapy reference charts listed in the book are indispensable and there is even a Chakra and Color chart as well.
