As a recently qualified nurse I have been brought up on evidence-based practice. Shirley Price certainly offers this with well-referenced texts, fully documented evidence, and examples of anecdotal evidence from informed practitioners. There is however, a reluctance to acknowledge the effectiveness of the multidisciplinary aproach to healing by an insistance that aromatherapy is sufficient in it's own right without the need to incorporate skills related to nursing. This is understandable in a climate of complementary medicine having to justify it's own existance in the world of modern medicine. There is detailed information on antiseptic/bacterial/viral qualities of oils. The paragraph on the use of essential oils with learning disabilities was disappointing - referring only to the oils which should not be used as opposed to what could be used for various cognitive actions. There was also little reference to aromathrapy for smell-memory, dementia, short-term memory integration and epilepsy management.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read - great for reference 21 Aug 2003
By A Customer
This is exactly what I have been looking for. It combines practical application with reasonable science while focusing on healing.
In the back are several appendices listing the recommendations and summarizing the findings.
Definitely worth the time and money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Medioca 13 Jun 2013
As both a qualified nurse and clinical aromatherapist I Expected more . Not really written to academic standard nurses are accustomed to, although is bumped up with lots of chemical constituents. It has very Limited practical advice I had hoped it would include more than the blooming obvious.

3.0 out of 5 stars Informative 25 Feb 2012
Got this book as its been recommended in the Aromatherapy world and I too would recommend it. Most of the information is still relative today. It also guides aromatherapist through the good the bad and the ugly and so informative in relative to every day clients and their problems. This is one to buy and keep as reference for years to come.
