As an aromatherapist I find this card deck to be very useful to leave in my therapy rooms for my clients to look at. They look very professional and well made.

Excellent seller, thank you very much!

I wanted easy access to recipes for aromatherapy treatments. While these cards are attractive and colourful, I find it easier to access the information from a book I can flip through than a pack of cards. The amount of information provided was insufficient for my needs.

Dangerously ignorant and misguided. 2 July 2010
By anonymouse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It is obvious the publisher wanted to put out an attractive card deck on the topic of Aromatherapy. It is a pity that he didn't find an author with at least a minimal knowledge of aromatherapy and essential oils. I knew we were in trouble when I saw cards for "Magnolia" and "Hyacinth". There ARE no essential oils produced from either Blossom. The is no natural Hyacinth scent. The 50 botanicals mentioned to not include latin species name or plant part. The card says "Anise" but the text mentions Star Anise, two very different oils. That's card number one.

Card # 3... Coriander. Coriander essential oil is distilled from the dried seed. The picture on the card is of the leafy foliage ... otherwise known as Cilantro. Same plant, differerent plant part, and vastly different effects. Since the author discussed "Taken internally it can.." it's hard to tell which she is referring to.

Under the "aromatherapy uses" of more than half of the essential oils listed she indicates internal use, with no guidelines, suggested dosages, or safety warnings. She very occasionally mentions diluting one of the described oils in lotion or massage oil, giving the impression that all others may safely be used undiluted.

Clove Oil: "The oil can also be applied to the skin to treat acne, burns , cuts, and ulcerous wounds." Excuse me? Not by any sensible person.

Violet: Beautiful picture of violet blossoms. Discussion of "the delicate scent of Violet Essential Oil"... except that there is no such a thing. There is an absolute, solvent extracted from Violet LEAVES...very green scented with a faintly floral dry down, but no natural Violet Essential Oil.

She talks of ingesting Lemon Verbena and Melissa Essential oils, Thyme oil (no mention of which Chemotype) Marjoram (wild or sweet Marjoram? we don't know.)

She writes of Balsam Essential oil..with a picture of an evergreen branch with green baby cones...perhaps Balsam Fir but I don't think so. She mentions "several varieties..Canadian Balsam, Pruvian Balsam, Tolu Balsam".... I think by Canadian Balsam she is referring to Balsam Fir, a conifer. Whichever, she gives the same recommendations for all Balsam oils... "Put a drop of Balsam Oil on your tongue to remedy laryngitis or a sore throat." Not this throat, thank you!

Orange Blossom Oil (does she mean Neroli, or Orange Blossom Absolute?) "When ingested, it balances stomach and digestive upsets"...

Bergamot Oil is recoommended as a skin tonic for acne, cold sores, eczema, psoriasis and boils. The card does not mention EITHER the need to dilute, or the fact that cold pressed bergamot is one of the worst photosensitizers. Just blythely suggests applying the oil to remedy any of the above conditions. Yes, a third degree sunburn could certainly aid acne or eczema...

Carnation Oil "Use carnation oil and carnation absolute externally only, don't ingest this botanical." Wonderful suggestion, since there is NO carnation essential oil.

These are just a few of the dangerous inaccuracies in this set of cards. I have referred to perhaps 10 out of 50. The others are no better. PLEASE do yourself a favor and do not buy these. If you've bought them or been given them, decorate your wall with the truly attractive (although sometimes mislabled) pictures. They are the only part of the set worth having.

Misinformtion in a pretty package 3 July 2010
By Diane Braybrook - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Don't be fooled by the pretty package and marketing hype. The information is not a reflection of true aromatherapy.

I like her 10 minute feng shui books 25 July 2010
By Sylvia E Dunlop - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
So I thought I would give her aromatherapy cards a try. It has quite a few scents. It is to early to really rate it. I've only read a few of the cards. But I guess it should be good.
